This game was hard for me to enjoy, Ive never really devoted any time to a baseball game and im fairly new to the wii. I found the game to be boring, hard to swing when batting with the nun chuk attached, also found it hard to do anything but pop out or ground out. I couldnt beat anyone at the home run derby and found it to take at least an hour just to lose a game. The game for me was simply annoying.
Okay. You've probably read the other reviews, so I'll focus on what they didn't say...
First, this game takes a few days to get used to. I lost the first ten games or so, mostly due to not being able to even hit a single. After a few days the hitting got much easier and now I can beat the Red Sox pretty easily, which is nice for me. Just remember that most pitchers are going to throw strikes. Don't swing on the first pitch though. Get inside the pitcher's head.
Second, the pitching is fun. Not much else to say about that...
Third, fielding sucks... at first. Press B to throw to the cut-off guy. Again, after a few days, this gets easier too.
The base running is pretty difficult too.
This game is pretty challenging, but what do you want? Life is challenging. Practice makes perfect.
