Summary: Before you throw up your hands and scream, "It’s a kids game!" let me finish this review with a philosophical statement. As a parent, I feel strongly that entertainment does not need not be watered-down or be of a lesser quality when targeted at children (see: Viva Pinata, most Lego products or any Pixar film for good examples of quality entertainment for a younger audience).
So I would encourage you to think twice about this game, both as a gamer and as a parent.
Pros: May appeal to boys and girls, Fun fields, Creative use of MLB players
Cons: The series seems to have regressed, Sloppy execution in many areas, Graphics are weak
