Summary: My favorite baseball game ever was MLB 2k5 for PS2. The controls were spot on, it was hardly ever glitchy, and the graphics were pretty good for that day and age. However, after buying a PSP, I realized I wanted a quick baseball game as it is that time of year. Not wanting to shell out the extra bucks for MLB 08 or 2k8 (since graphics aside, there isn't that much year-to-year difference anyway), I picked this up.
Summary: I enjoyed the game with exception to a few glitches. The only time on career mode that the manager let me throw a complete game was when I was close to throwing a perfect game. There were times when the manager pulled me with 1 out left in the game and a shutout was still intact.
Summary: I just recently bought a PSP and got this game so I could play some baseball. The graphics are amazing. I have only played the season so far and havn't tried anything else. Some of the aspects of playing the game are garbage. I had a guy hit an in-the-park homerun by running from second across the pithcers mound and home. I have had runners go from first to thrid by crossing the diamond and have had runners run past second and all the way to the centerfield wall.
Summary: So this game is an OK upgrade from MLB 06. It's probably the slowest game I own for my PSP but once you're on deck things move pretty quickly...unless there are two runners on base then the screen can get choppy when the action starts. Warning to newbies: the game manual is flippin terrible! If you don't believe me go to Sony's web site and download the PDF. The only direction it gives is basic overview of the controls.
