I think this game overall is pretty good, but it has room for improvement, for Ex, im not really crazy about the pitching controls.
And also for people who already played this game and are having a hard time hitting. Make sure you use the classic hitting controls instead of sixaxis hitting. You may access classic hitting using the "My VIP options"
If you ever thought to yourself, "Man, I would be a great GM for the Yankees. Georgie boy should really give me a chance." Then you might want to check this game out. You can customize almost anything about a team and you can take the helm and just run a team any old way you want. It starts out awesome too, but after a few months of the schedule go by it starts to feel like work. The game quickly becomes more tedious then exciting, but why try a new game mode? I mean you have already put so much time into this GM mode you would kill yourself knowing it was for not. So keep plugging away, signing free agents keeping the hitters happy, and being as delicate as possible with your star ace. Once you actually play some games though you will find that this game comes with some outstanding presentation. They give some great insight into baseball with the FOX pregame crew then ESPN's own John Miller and Joe Morgan doing play by play and color commentary, really with John and Joe they doing the in game announcing they struck gold. Some of the controls are mushy, and base running can become more difficult then washing paint off your neighbors cat because you wondered how a paintball would affect him. Some great features make this a fun game but most of them are only appealing to the hardcore baseball fan.

This is a cool game. I think people should give it a shot. Although the gamemakers haven't quite used the Six Axis that well, it really takes off the extra fun the PS3 posses. Overall graphics and gameplay is good but yeah I think people should give it a shot. I liked it and maybe you would like it too.
