Weak

Game had potential

Good game other than the fact that it is way too limited in the motion controls...which is perfect for a baseball game and the reason why I rented it.

“Success Mode” is Not a Success

MLB Power Pros gives us a brief glimpse of a great game, however most the time you’re confused and wondering to yourself why you are even playing it. It is a game with a good idea with a nice core, but the different game modes are not as you’d expect.

The graphics are what you’d expect from a Wii game, bobble heads with even less detail. However, this system obviously isn’t bought for its graphics, so no complaints here.

Game play is simple and easy to pick up. There’s a small learning curve, but a seven or eight year old could easily pick this up and play along side you. Every team is in there with current line ups so you won’t be missing a key player that could easily change your team.

The only reason this game is just above average is the fact that its RPG aspect, is less to be desired. You are left uniformed, and the game quickly becomes repetitive; increase energy, practice, energy, practice, energy…. It’s difficult to grow as a player without any guidance, and more than likely you will be fired over a period of time. I’ve tried this mode several different ways and you need to be an ace in every game to meet the scout’s expectations. The different scenes that try to make it a real life experience (trying the item on the menu at the steakhouse) are nothing but dialogue and you will soon be zooming on by without even reading.

Rent this game, enjoy it for a couple days, but be prepared to become frustrated and send it back in a fit.
