Very Good

Arcade action that's better than the first

Now this may not be the most accurate way to depict a baseball game, but you cannot doubt that it is fun. While playing The Show for me was great, this just has that arcade feeling to it that makes it worth the time.

Pitching is easy, hold the button, get it over the line, try to stop it at the top.

Batting is fairly easy, aim your swing, time it right, hope for the best.

Even the mini-games while making "Legendary Catches" are simple and fun.

Basically, while the game isn't graphically the best, the gameplay and feel to the game is one where you could see yourself playing it over and over again. If not by yourself, definitely with a friend.

Overall, I like it, I'll play it, but I'll probably only have it until I get bored with it. You can really only hit so many big slam homers into scoreboards before you go, "I'd rather play somethin' else for a while."

An 8 it is.

Great Game

This game is very fun and entertaing. The controls are very simple and easy to learn. This game is definatly an arcade baseball game, so dont be expecting realism like MLB the show.

This game overall is really fun. The graphics are good, and the players look real enough. The batting is as easy and as simple as a press of a button. pitching is fun and exciting, but i have the most fun chasing down pop flies and playing the mini games. This game was made well, it is an arcade game, but it wasnt over done and isnt cheesy.

The bad, there isnt to much that stands out. The most frustrating things are the base running and getting out on first when the guy didnt even touch the bag. the baserunning doesnt work the greatest and sometimes your guy can get off the base or keep going when you didnt want him too.

In all this game is great if you like baseball or just like to play with friends. It is a perfect game for casual gamers and controls are simple enough for you to play this game with an 8 year old. Give it a try!

Terrible Controls

I sat on this game for hours trying to hit the ball. Ive played baseball games all my life and have never had this difficult of a time making contact. Aside from the terrible controls, this game is pretty good. IF only they would have made hitting the ball easier... after all isnt that the point of an arcade style game?
