Summary: The game is not particularly hard, but that's exactly why I got it for my 5-year-old. He loves it and thinks the pros as kids are funny. It has helped attach him to the sport in general. You can ratchet up the difficulty as needed so I don't find that to be a problem. The graphics are solid though limited. I guess that's the biggest knock in that most things are limited.
Summary: This game is very fun for the kid who likes the Backyard sports games. But the game could need to be bit more challenging. The first time I played this game it was good but the score was 108-36 in 12 total minutes. You can go ahead and buy it but if your lookin for a good challenge put the computer difficulty on Hard.
