I liked this game well enough to have bought it used from Gamefly. I give it a solid 8.5 (rounded up to 9) Hands down the best portion of the game is the season mode, where you get to be the GM of your fav. MLB team for ten seasons. In this, you control everything, from equipment to practice type for each player. This part of the game is a 10/10.

Another part of the game I enjoyed was the success mode. In this you play a college baseball player wishing to go to the pros. This part get a 7/10 for it is as frustrating as it is fun. You do not get real game play time until your final year of college and regardless of how well you do on the field, you may not make the majors. I have had a 3 for 4 day, two HRs and 3 RBI in the game leading to the tournament, but the team lost so I just wasted two hours creating a college player with stats better than some MLB players, great!!!!

But I would still say you should try this as it is a nice blend of sport and RPG. 9/10

The last time I played a baseball games was about 10 years ago at a friends house on a Sega platform (and that game was fun).

MLB has a lot of options (depth); the difficulty is a bit to easy (granted the avatars that you are playing with indicates difficulty); the fileding AI could use a tweaking. The graphics, audio, and interface are very good.

However there is an option for Wii Remote Controls so there are 2 ways to enjoy this title.
All in All I and the family had fun with it and you and your family will to (cute with a little learning curve). RENT IT!!

MLB Power Pros not worth the 9 ratings

MLB Power Pros is crippled by a bogus options menu which does nothing to help the player & offers no new ground. The game has far too many unnecessary game features to choose from which hinders the fun factor. The game's difficult learning curve offers zero "pick up and play" interest for rookie or vetern game players. The batting is one of the worse I have ever seen in
a baseball game. I barely could hit anything & rarely anything off the ground. The controls could have been reworked. How about using the remote's motion controls more often, Nintendo!?! This game would have benefitted perfectly if the big N allowed the player to swing the remote to bat and pitch balls with. Grr!

MLB Power Pros is not all bad, it does have some good in it. The fielding is fairly solid, more so if you turn on the auto help, allowing you to focus on the frustrating aspects of the game. The pitching is decent, nothing new compared to other games. The cutesy look of real MLB players is a welcomed change, but could decieve parents into thinking this is designed solely for kids. Far from it! Parents be prepared it's no walk in the park. The overall graphics are typical Wii form.

Overall, MLB Power Pros is average, no where near close to the numerous 9 ratings game players on this site give it. If you have a lot of time and patience, Power Pros could be the Wii baseball for you. But, if you are like me & prefer a more realistic, "pick up and play" baseball game, find something else. MLB Power Pros, could have used the remote's motion control set up, which a lot of Wii games seem to lack, especially the sports genre.
