Decent all around Baseball gaming experience

I will agree that some props need to be giving up for the game to the extent that it is more than just a roster update from the previous year. However, there is nothing in the game that compares to the reality of MLB '09 the show.

The new pitcher interface is ok to say the least, and the swing stick control, a lot of people I see state they can't hit because of it, me personally I found it very easy to gain the upper hand against the AI and began hitting more than 10 HRs a game.

It can be fun if you're looking for the arcade style baseball games. If you're looking for realism go with the Show!

SO sad

Baseball games have taken a huge downfall in the last year or so in my opinion.

What i mean by that is, the game creators are trying to make the games controls way to complex, i have to look back at the control screen just to remember everything because there is 80 bajillion button combos that do all kinds of different things depending on wether you are batting, pitching, running, fielding... It gets kinda annoying afterwhile.

Another thing that will bother you is replays, there is a replay after EVERYTHING, after a pitched strike, pitched ball, hit, pitcher walking back to the mound after a hit, catcher getting setup, its so irritating...its like you just want to scream "I JUST WANT TO PLAY THE GAME!"

The Total Control pitching in this game is also kind of annoying, the slightest drift of the stick even a milimeter off in the wrong direction and it makes you throw a meatball which the AI hits a homer off of almost every single time...

Not to mention the 3 stop process involved in the Total COntrol Pitching is just annoying, its not like 2k7 where you judge power and accuracy, now you have power/accuray/efficiency of the pitch...that as well is quite a turn off from this games true potential.
