Summary: Spend only a few minutes with MLB Power Pros and you'll probably be led to believe it's nothing more than a lighthearted, over-the-top take on professional baseball. After all, the bobbleheaded renditions of familiar Major League players look adorable, and the controls make it very easy to slam moon shots toward the outfield.
Pros: Bobbleheaded characters give the game a unique, whimsical look, Controls are so simple that literally anyone can learn to play, Excellent physics and rich statistics for people who care about that stuff, Loads of in-depth play modes and player creation features, RPG-style success mode provides unique take on the typical career mode
Cons: Technical aspects of the graphics are a couple years behind the curve, Play-by-play guy repeats himself constantly, No online features, not even roster updates
Excerpt: For another opinion on this game, read here! Name: MLB POWER PROS Genre: Sports, Baseball Platform: Nintendo Wii I had mixed opinions about this game before I even played it simply because it was made by 2K Sports, the same company that disappointed me so badly with The Bigs on the Wii. However, it had cutesy little baseball players on the cover and looked like it was actually made with the Wii in mind.
Excerpt: If there's one sport that I feel overly connected with, it is baseball. Yeah, I enjoy football, but I haven't been a big fan of the sport until five or so years ago. Baseball, though, I've been following for over 20 years now. I played some T-Ball when I was younger, my brother played baseball for awhile and, needless to say, we've picked up a ton of baseball games over the years. From the original Nintendo baseball game to MLB 07 The Show, we've played them all.
