The swing stick thingy is difficult but fun on PSP. The pitching feels like EA's MVP with some slight difference. I have to give kudos for the realism in this game...but when comes to graphics...man, there are some nasty jaggies on screen. The animations look fluid, but the models around those animations look downright ugly sometimes. Kinda like PS1 I guess. Anyhow, I'm nitpicking. There are some terrific playmodes, online, a great career mode, and more. If you love baseball and want it portable get this game.
