Lack of instruction made the control system impossible to fathom. Hitting, as with most modern baseball titles, is pure luck. Fielding was hilarious as my third baseman circled and circled under flies while every grounder hit his glove no matter what. Half the time my runner would steal and half the time just stand there. Too hinky. Not realistic. It captured the boring parts of the game well but brought no excitement. I love baseball but video-game makers just cannot capture it well enough to interest me.
