OK, so i bought this game a couple days ago and WOW! I was SOO ready to take it back. i thought to myself, this is the dumbest game i have ever played... well, it was pretty much because i was getting beat soo bad and didnt know any of the controls...lol.
SOOO, i started the main aspect of the game(rookie challenge)and WOW, this game is ADDICTING! Really, once you get the controls down, timing your swings and throwing perfect pitches its GREAT!!!...gaining turbo and using it at the right time is HUGE...
this IS an arcade game, but playing at a more difficult skill level( i started at medium and i win some/loose some) will keep the games interesting and i havent had one game go more than 10 runs so its not like its 25 - 15 every game.
GET THIS GAME! Rent it, buy it, it doesnt matter. If you rent it im 99% sure you will thereafter purchase it...play the rookie challenge.
the ONLY drawback i have is the fans in the stadiums. dont get me wrong, the stadiums are BEAUUUUUUTIFUL! BUT after hitting homeruns, the background looking at the crowd is not that great compared the the player models which are VERY nice.
