Horrible

Unbelievably bad

Expecting something like fantasy baseball?? Well this is more in line with a fantasy kick in the groin than anything.

Interface is slow and unresponsive and extremely user unfriendly. Player stats are hard to locate, and are extremely lite.

Franchise/Career mode in ANY other baseball game is much more polished than this piece of junk.

If you play games like madden and usually find yourself just simulating thru season after season in franchise mode, just trying to build good teams for the heck of it...

then this is probably a game for you.

if not, id probably stay away.

When you first start career mode you will be signing free agents, going thru arbitrations, letting players go, and doing a rule 5 draft before you even get to spring training... all in all this will take you a good hour or two easy. the season is similar, a bunch of text, messing around with rosters here or there, and simulating season to season.

Likes-
The CPU isn't dumb and tries to compete and make their rosters just as powerful as yours.
In Depth, can do japanese bidding for players, rule 5 draft, amateur draft, arbitrations, and running 6 or 7 different teams from MLB to AAA to AA and so on.

Dislikes-
Really slow and boring.
Players ratings suck. Francisco Rodriguez drops to a 50 after 1 season...
Gets old after only 2 or 3 seasons.

Overall, 6...
something new for avid baseball fans, try it out for a few days, then dump it. good idea, lots of work needed.

Let me first start out by saying that I love baseball, fantasy baseball and baseball games. I would buy the baseball games and just make trades and simulate the season. This game seemed like it would be perfect for me...boy was I wrong. The menu screens are awful, the player rater is kinda crazy and its just no fun. I'm so glad I rented it on gamefly instead of just going out and buying it.
