Bad

Too Hard

I played a number of games on Rookie and couldn't get a baseball out of the infield. There are no tutorials to help you figure things out. It looks like it would be a fun game, but, as a casual gamer, I probably can't put in the time needed to be good at this game.

Only real downside is the lack of online (i.e. it has been turned off in lieu of MLB 10'). Worth renting if you have never played the series, or buying if you go for MLB 10'.

Very Good

Cant Hit!

The hitting in 09 is way different from 08! In 08 I could hit and score pretty easily. But not in this game, even if the pitch was right down the middle, all i would get was a grounder to 2nd or a long fly ball. Hit one home run in 5 games. highest run total was 4. But for some reason the CPU could rip the cover off the ball no matter how bad of a team i was playing. I played with the Phillies who have a pretty solid lineup and got nothing absolutely nothing. The pitching is the same. But if the CPU got 4 or more runs the game was over. Couldnt make a comeback with the hitting to save my life. STill the best looking baseball game and most realistic out there. But all in all i wish the hitting was a little better. Scoring 2 or 3 runs a game got a little old after awhile.
