Overall it's decent. It has a long play time value if you enjoy all the different modes it has. (Which it has a lot of)

Again, it's another game that doesn't really use the wii remote. There is a mode you can go into for you're mii's but it's no better than Wii Sports. The game gets way too detailed for me. I thought it was going to be more of a light hearted arcade game. There's way to many details and options that I just don't know what to do.

It can be fun. It's not horrible. It just didn't click with me. I would rent it first if you're thinking of getting it. It's not that expensive, which was nice, but other than that I wasn't impressed with it. I read too many good reviews and was confused after playing it for a few weeks. Live and learn.

It's just a matter of what kinda games your into, I'm not huge into sports except acrady like ones (example: Blitz 2000, 2003) I give it a 7 because I think the right person would really love this game.

Above Average

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.
