A rush job to say the least. MLB is a better bet this time.

Summary: I love baseball, and usually MVP gets my nod every year for being fun and exciting. But this portable version trying to take after it's bigger cousin, falls flat on it's face and EA Sports should no better than to release this 1/2 arsed effort. So what's wrong? How about the choppy graphics after the first pitch? How about the batting game being boring. It makes hitting an extremely simple process against the computer.
Summary: In addition to being incredibly "buggy" (my game freezes up on me occasionally and I've had trouble loading), this game is pathetic. The gameplay is particularly tiresome, given that you need to swing at the ball pretty much as soon as it leaves the pitcher's hand if you want to make any real contact. In addition, the graphics are mediocre. I can't understand how anyone could say that this game is "great" or even "passable." I feel like I got completely ripped off.
