I am on board. I sucked at MLB to say the least but that didnt stop me from goin at it again again. From pitching, to base running. From fielding to hitting. Yep, I sucked big. Although, this title was just fun and beautiful. Adding your own music to the stadium and intro music for your created character was awesome. Wish other titles let you do that. Graphics are just cool. All the little animations at bat that makeup your swing are nifty. From reactions to missed swings, fouls, and taking strikes and outside balls. To bad calls made by the ump. The pitching aspect is the same. Oh man, I cant stop talking bout MLB 14.
Sounds and music. Think I...touched base bout this a few lines back. Love the sounds. Breaking bats, listening to the 4 seam fastball wiz by or of course cracking that ball 475ft, that was my record on Home Run mode btw. Importing your music is amazing! One of my most loved features.
Gameplay. Like I said, I am really bad at this game. It was so good I kept goin. Pitching was my strong point. If I had one. Timing is everything in MLB. Again from pitching to hitting. Fielding to running. Its all timing. Wish I had a PS Move system to try this out with. Bet it would've been cool as h e double hockey sticks.
If you like sports games, this is the one for you. i don't even like baseball. Yet, I grind-ed out career mode with a opening and closing pitcher. Did the best I could in Dynasty mode. Finally, embarrassed myself multiple times in online mode. I have never had as much fun being so terrible. Rent it, love it, buy it. Thanks for your time and as always, play ball, uh, I mean game on!

2.The presentation is good as always but better than ever. They have a nice flow when your done batting you will instantly hear batter walk up music with a scene.
3. Player ratings are more realistic. Not everyone has a 99 overall with insane stats. Only three people in the game have a 99 overall. Clayton, Trout, and Miggy.
Meter pitching has improved from what I can tell. when you release to early the ball will take off on you. But if you release kinda late you will hit your target.
Cons: Hitting lol. Still can't hit for nothing even when a ball is down the middle or in their hot zones.
2. Sliders do so little.
3. AI cheese lol. I pitched a first pitch it was 1-0 braves I was the braves. It was exactly on the outside corner and so low that it wouldn't be a homer like at all. But the AI's PCI guessed perfectly not kidding. Then hit it out?! The chesse factor is in full swing in this game lol. But in the end I got 5ks with only 2 hits and that was the only run that the nationals got.
Had the build for a great game but...
