This game is very bad and should not be played by anyone. It is boring and takes to long to do anything. The game is also very confusing and curtain things don't work out right. Don't even bother with this game.
I love the idea of this game. My favorite part of all sports games is personnel management and trading players. This game offers that, but little else, and leaves you confused and with no satisfaction of achieving anything. It has all the details, but the interface doesn't feel comfortable. The two things that I disliked the most were; the player overall rating system (20-80 in increments of 5, no detail or variance between players) and how some fictional 19 year old's are rated higher than good MLB veterans, and the lack of a trade search option. The computer offers you lots of trades, none of which are very beneficial to you, but it is really hard to shop a player and you can't find out how interested the other team is in your trade. You are better off playing MLB 2K8, or 2K9 in a month, and simming the games, the GM interface is much better and more fun.
This game is bad bad bad.Me and bro couldnt wait to play it we love baseball but the gameplay is horrible not realistic at all.The batters never swing or strike out on bad pitches, most pitches are right down the middle of the plate,fielding players dont tag runners when theres a play at a bag when they are gonna be thrown out they just stand there and let them be safe,the outfielders just stand there dont run until a ball lands in the gap,the outfielders throw home and dont hit the cutoff man when its clear hes gonna score and let the runner advance to second.Also when your at bat when you pick what your gonna do what you pick is for the whole at bat not pitch by pitch which is so stupid so if you wanna steal its on the first pitch or hit and run its the first pitch and they usually swing and miss which is dumb they should make contact atleast.And people get picked off alot at first and theres never close plays at first there are so many almost impossible double plays.Diving play at short throw home then to first and got him by a mile.So stupid.Dont get it please.
