Overall: #1 baseball game this year. You have the ability to go online and play games as well as start leagues and tournaments. Xbox Live also provides access to downloadable content like up to date rosters. Gameplay: When you are pitching, fielding or baserunning you feel that you are in control of everything and everyone. The difficulty settings in the game will keep you busy for hours. When you play at the highest difficulty setting it is a real challenge to win the game. Baserunning is new and improved from last year, it is now a little easier to steal a base. The pitching controls make it easy to put the ball where you want it, you will want to play this game over and over. Graphics: The ballparks and players look like the real-life counterparts. From every hitting stance to pitching style, it is all here. Sound: This is where 2K Sports made its name. You can't find commentary like this is on any other baseball game. The crowd in the game reacts very nicely in almost every situation. Suggestions: Good job 2K Sports and Take-Two!
