This is the only baseball game I ever
played (not counting Wii sports
baseball) and I love it. Addictive and
brilliant game.

Wow, thought this would have sold more.

I love this game. I play it 4 days a
week. The classic RPG-building aspects
are sick when you consider having 20-40
people to train.

Lots of fun.

The best simulation I've ever played.
Brilliant Game. Fielding is a little
tough with the nunchuk when moving
towards homeplate. Otherwise, Great
Game!

Disappointing sales and poor reception
for the US/MLB debut of Japans popular
Power Pro series. Developed by Konami,
Published (in the US) by 2K Sports. This
was thrown out for the Wii and PS2
midway through the 2007 season (with
2006 MLB rosters) with little fanfare or
advertising.

It's a shame, because
this is simply the best baseball game
ever made.

The Chibi Character
animations are likely the first thing to
turn hardcore sports fans away from this
particular title, but the swing
animations and facial expressions are
brilliant, and many of MLB's great
current players are immediately
recognizable in their Chibi
counterparts.

The game offers
information overload at every menu,
which is a treat for stat geeks and long
time baseball fans, and there are
several play-mode options right from the
outset, whether you want to play one
exhibition style game, or manage/gm your
favorite franchise through multiple
seasons.

The game records every swing
and every pitch throughout a campaign,
and offers the data up with an
overwhelming assortment of graphs and
charts that allow you to scout upcoming
hitters and pitchers or self-scout your
own team for weaknesses. Game play
itself is really intuitive and rather
fast paced, with quick animations and
little in the way of gratuitous fluff,
meaning you can pickup and play a full 9
inning game in around 20-25
minutes.

This game has it all! It is
ironic that despite the cartoon
presentation, this is easily the most
realistic baseball simulator ever
offered in the US with a full MLB
license. Finally, a true, spiritual
successor to the classic RBI series and
Culture Brains Baseball Simulator
franchise from the NES/SNES era.
