Great Game

This is a great baseball game and it is better then 2k9. For all casual players, beware, hitting the ball is hard and is going to take practice; if you think you can just pick the game up and play a little, get ready for one frustrating afternoon. However, if you give it some time you will find it to be a great game and batting a .100-.300 is doing great in this game.

I found that the Rtts mode to be great and really rewarding. I will say that it does take awhile to advance to the majors, maybe even 2 years of play. But, think about it, doesn't it take longer for real players?

If you want a rewarding game, then rent this game

I dont normally play baseball games (mostly because they are not challenging). Well this one is a very challenging game.

Game Play - The game play is fun and its difficult to bat over 250. I like this because its more realistic. Most people think they should always bat 400. Why play if its easy. The one major flaw was base running. I got in run downs (never succeeded) on base hits because the screen changed and that changed the direction I was running getting me hung between bases. This detracts from the game but only a little. I give game play 7

Graphics were very good. The stadiums look great and the players look good. I give Graphics a 9.

Controls are very intuative and easy to learn. Batting is tough (which I like). I give controls a 8.

I did not play online as I was mostly doing RTTS.

Overall I think this could be a buy. The RTTS could easliy be played by multiple postions (pitcher, catcher, first base, short stop). I really enjoyed this game and I will be purchasing in the future.
