This game is kiddie and simple gameplay wise, but at the same time the season mode is too complicated to get into easily. The MLB Life mode is too hard to play as your own created player, and the Success Mode is too hard to get to the majors in and have fun doing the outside stuff, like working, getting a girlfriend, etc. Overall, not for the hardcore baseball fan, but not for the casual fan either as it is too hard to get into any depth with.
Gameplay in this game was awful. It felt to cartoonish which is what they were going for but not what I like in a baseball game unless were talking all star softball for NES now thats a game. They concentrated on making this 2 much like a baseball harvest moon. Some may like it so I'm not saying dont rent it. Just saying this one is more suited for a child around the ages of 7-12 years old.
