It may look good but it isn't fun
Guys I'm speaking from good experience, avoid this game. I owned the PS3 version for months before I decided to add the Vita to my collection. The PS3 game is amazing in every way. So amazing in fact that I fantasy drafted an entire team and then played every single game of the season all the way to the end. Including playoffs that's like 180 games. The PS3 version sports amazing graphics, realistic crowd noise, believable gameplay and totally cool replays and tv style presentation. The graphics and player models transfer well to the Vita but that's not good enough. I found out rather quickly when I played the Vita version that the presentation and replays make the entire experience amazing. That's because the Vita game has none of that. That's right, no replays at all. You hit a single and you never get to see it again, you make an amazing diving catch and don't blink because you'll miss it. Most distasteful is no replays on Hr's. I mean, I nail a shot into the seats and I want to enjoy it. Not only can't you watch a live replay because you can't manually replay it either like in it's big brother incarnacion. As you can figure the replay commentary is lost as well. Playing the PS Vita version is like attenting a High School baseball game while the PS3 is the majors. Lastly, your trying to hit a little white ball in a small strike zone. Challenging enough on PS3 but shrink the screen on the Vita and it becomes a real eye strainer. You would think they would add extra camera angles to allow the user to zoom in but they don't. I owed it for literally 1 week and resold it on ebay at al loss.Read full review
Wish all games were as good as this game.
Great iteam looks very realistic and great game play. The graphics are better than I expected. Look to purchasing more games like this in the future,
My son wanted the game for his PS Vita. He has similar games for other systems. He loves it and plays it all the time.
Greatest Baseball Game Franchise
Great looking baseball game for a Handheld, almost like playing the big boy version and without question better looking than any baseball game on Xbox 360
