Excellent

Good game but some improvments

This game, overall, is still the best sports game you can get for your money. The graphics are great and it stays true to the game. The umpires strike zone will actually dance around and they can blow calls on the bases. I think that the hitting style couldn't be much better and the pitching is still perfect. ]

The improvements could go with the announcers and showing a little bit more passion in some areas. I was playing the last game in the season and if I won, I was in the playoffs. The feeling in the stadium was flat. It was like it was just as important as the game I played in July. I think next year, they should work on that aspect. By showing the high steaks in elimination games in the playoffs or the pressure a pitcher could be facing going into the last inning of a perfect game bid would make the game a perfect 10.

--Sony, just put in a little more enthusiasm into those aspects.

Horrible

Worst online mlb game to date!!!

I shouldve never bought this game! If your playing it online,good luck! This game changes the outcome of your game so the other player can have a chance to even the score!! You can be up by 10 and all of a sudden your players start making errors!! If you dont believe me, play a close game and see how many errors you get with a gold glove mlb player! This game is really really disappointing!

Still the baseball sim out there

Overview
=====================
This is still the best baseball simulation on the market. However, I didn't find features that would compel me to buy it over MLB 11. If you've got a 3D TV, PS Move, or like ultimate team style modes then it might be worth it.

Otherwise the core gameplay is the pretty much the same. That isn't a knock as this is a great baseball game. Great rent....just not a purchase at full retail.

Pros
==============
1) looks and plays better than any other game
2) some neat gimmicky enhancements

Cons
==============
None
