    This is one of the best baseball games i have played in a long time...

    First of all i just have to say that this game was very well made. The graphical upgrade from last year alone almost warrants the purchase of the game. I liked that they stuck with hitting a button to hit and pitch. ... Read Full Review

    There is always a hit or miss (no pun intended) element to sports games, especially baseball. I think part of it has to do with the fact that baseball just has so much that goes on with hitting, pitching, fielding, and g... Read Full Review
