Pitch, Swing, Replay.. After about 15 minutes, it gets pretty old. Made for multi-player entertainment. So if you playing only, don't bother. Also the game does not seem to pick up your motion that well. Definitely: PASS!
The interface with the controller is horrible. The baseball game that comes with the Wii console is much better. I knew this game was a batting cage syle game play, but I at least figured I would be hitting the ball far down the field. I would be better off in a real batting cage. There is no consitancy in the swing mechanics. The swing height will imitate the controller, sometimes it won't. I hit far more foul balls and grounders than I did any in the air, let alone deep in the outfield. And forget over the fence.
It became extremely frustrating and the long delay between pitches made the game very boring. If you feel the need to smack a ball down the field and over the fence, stick with the Wii Sports baseball. You'll have way more fun.

I play baseball (mens) year round and pay alot of money to go to the batting cages. I was hoping this would be cool to do once in a while, rainy days, snow time, etc...But it's not. It's way to slow - there's no help available - some options never actually work - and in the end, it's TO HARD. Yup, you heard me, tooooo hard...You can swing perfectly, with power, exactly correct and the ball goes no where. Other times u can luckily flick the paddle correctly and hit a HR.
I really, really, REALLY wanted this game to be realistic and fun. But it's actually a frustrating waste of time. This coming from a life-long ball player.
