Everything about this game is schweet. They have like a "rookie" single player mode. Where you start out as a rookie and you have to make a name for yourself in the bigs. It's pretty creative. The controls are awesome, the graphics are awesome, and so is the soundtrack. This game is a definite rent and probably even a buy.

The bigs for the Wii is a core version of the 360, but it still holds firm in its own way. There should be more special effects for an arcade version of a baseball game, like celebrations with the team after hitting a home run or grand slam. The hard hitting homeruns only hit three different places, either on the foul poles or the center field big screen. The game is challenging and the rookie mode is where the game shines. Over all, it is a buy and I am looking forward to a bigger better version for the wii.

this game really dissapointed me. i thought that the gameplay would be better, and there would be a better franchise mode. it turns out there isnt even a franchise mode.
the good point of this game is that its pretty fun for multiplayer. but when playing by yourself, the computer does all these impossible catches. when you accumulate points by doing nice plays, you can do impossibe pitches and catches and homeruns every time you make contact, but the game is not that fun unless youre playing with someone else.
the graphics actually look pretty good, but the movements of the players are really bad. and the announcing is one of the worst i have ever seen.
gameplay: i still dont know how to pitch a variety of the pitches. its really confusing to learn how to pitch at first, and then once you do that, some of the pitches are like impossible to do, even if you twist the wii remote in the correct way shown on the screen. my friend agreed.
different modes: the only mode in this game is rookie challenge, where you create a rookie and have good performances. having good performances causes you to get more points to improve how good you are and your player rating. however, this is not an interesting mode, and you will quickly stop playing it.
there is not even a season mode, which is really dissapointing.
bottom line: may be good to play with a few friends, but even then, this game lacks fun material.
