Front Page Sports: Football Pro is a sports simulation game developed by Dynamix and published by Sierra On-Line. It was released in 1993 for MS-DOS. It's the sequel to Front Page Sports: Football, the first sports simulation game released by Sierra On-Line in 1992.

FPS: Football was praised for its realism and attention to detail. It allowed players to control every aspect of their team's performance, from drafting and trading players to designing plays and calling strategies during games. The game offered a comprehensive set of features, including:

Team Management: You had control over your team's roster, managing everything from player contracts and trades to handling the draft. This added a layer of depth to the game, as you had to make strategic decisions to build a winning team.

Playbook Design: The game provides a play designer, allowing you to create custom offensive and defensive plays. You could design plays from scratch or modify existing ones, offering a high degree of customization.

Realistic Gameplay: Front Page Sports: Football Pro aimed for realism in its gameplay mechanics. It featured a physics engine that simulated player movements, and the action on the field closely resembled the actual sport of American football.

Stat Tracking: Detailed statistics were recorded for each player and team, adding to the authenticity of the experience.

Front Page Sports: Football Pro includes a few improvements to the game engine and a way to play a season online.

The game received positive reviews for its in-depth simulation and realistic gameplay. It catered to fans who appreciated American football's strategic and managerial aspects. Its comprehensive features, strategic depth, and attention to detail earned it a positive reputation among sports gaming enthusiasts. While its graphics may seem dated by today's standards, it remains a significant title in the history of sports simulation gaming.
