Game Overview:

*NOTE* This game was run using the v1.2 patch because the shipping version would refuse to run on my machine without the patch.

It's baseball season (actually, about half way through the major leagues), and here is a baseball game for the PC that was fully licenced by the MLB and MLBPA so you will see authentic stadiums, all the players and stats, and the real teams with uniforms. Just exactly what you would expect to see in a baseball simulation these days. But exactly what does this game have to offer that other games don't? Well not much, but it's not a terrible game either. Just like any other baseball game it features all the known parts of a baseball season, exhibition game, seasonal play, and the home run derby. The game really has good gameplay, but a game that could really be enjoyable is turned away by the appaling batter/pitcher interface, poor play-by-play commentary, and if somewhat alienated graphics. The real benefits lie in the statistics engine, the awesome AI, and pretty well rendered stadiums. If you enjoy baseball games, this is an enjoyable experience, but don't expect it to be the most memorable game you've played before.
