This game is head and shoulders so far above the previous several OOTP releases, it's not even funny. After OOTP's last release, I was about fed up and ready to abandon them forever. So, when 2007 was released, after being bothered by people I've played in online leagues with to try the demo, I did such, and was literally blown away. I'm not playing in internet leagues anymore, but OOTP 2007 is literally the perfect game for solo leagues, especially if you want to go the historical route. Definitely an awesome game, and much better than at least the last 3 OOTP releases.
