4.0 out of 5 stars The best wii baseball game. August 26, 2008
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, this is the best baseball game out there for the wii. Plenty of game modes, including exhibition, batting practice, fielding practice, home run derby, 162 game season mode, a 6-team round robin league mode, and 2 rpg-like modes: MLB Life, and Success mode.

I spend about 95% of my time in season mode. There is plenty to do, although almost nothing has changed in season mode since last year. One thing in particular that I still like is the different simulation modes, where you can essentially let the computer play all the games, with the option to stop play before any batter and take control yourself. This can make it possible to play many games in a short amount of time each day. Season mode keeps stats in at least 50 different categories and allows you to sort by stat, by team, by division, by league...and also keeps all-time records. You can buy special bats and gloves, etc, to help your players practice more efficiently and raise their abilities between games (although progress takes time, a lot of time).

The batting practice mode is pretty cool too. You can customize the pitches that are thrown by pitcher, type and location, so you can work on hitting just inside curveballs if you want.

There are lots of frills like baseball cards with player bios and player batting and pitching stances/styles, and fictional stadiums that you can purchase with "frequent player points". There is the ability to create "arrange" teams with custom players, or to keep rosters updated. You can adjust the players abilities also and use these arranged teams in your season. I guess you could do this every year so that rosters are kept up-to-date. You can even create a 32 team league, and edit the team colors, uniform and mascot of a couple expansion teams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still great but essentially no changes August 8, 2008
By Dave
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to give this years version 4 stars only due to the fact that 99% of the game remains unchanged. While I can appreciate the developers taking the "if it ain't broke don't fix it approach", I still would've liked to see some additions/corrections. The game has all the elements that made last years a nearly perfect game, but, the same problems remain. The minor league system is still not done well, there are very few errors (especially throwing), and the computer throws strikes strikes and more strikes (good luck drawing a walk), and worst of all no online play to speak of.
Overall, the season mode is still great. The computer presents a strong challenge and the statistics are realistic. I would like to see a more expanded minor league system which might include AA and AAA rather than just a few guys that you can bring up whenever you feel like it. The MLB Life mode is fun for awhile but it quickly gets old when you have to conduct each at bat for your player over the course of 162 games with no way to skip ahead AT ALL!!

I hate to be petty as this is still my favorite baseball game, but I was hoping to join up with an online league or at least have single matches this year. Still a wonderful game with a lot of features, but not quite a 5-star delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best games out there for the Wii May 20, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
MLB Power Pros 2008 is an entertaining, highly addictive little baseball game. The players may look chubby and silly (similar to those from the old RBI Baseball for the NES), but the physics are quite realistic and the learning curve for getting a handle on gameplay is very fair. You certainly won't be hitting home runs galore for the first couple of days (probably not ever if you keep the difficulty set at normal or above) and it takes a while to get the hang of base running and effective pitching. Once you can hold your own though, you just might find yourself spending an awful lot of your spare time building a team into a contender or turning a AA scrub into a millionaire stud. The MLB Life option is great as you really get a feel for the team aspect of the sport, kicking yourself for leaving ducks on the bond or screaming at the light hitting chump behind you who takes meaty mistake pitches and swings at garbage in the dirt after you've beat out a single and swiped a base. (One tip for those who can't seem to "succeed" on success mode: buy a no-laziness amulet to ensure that you don't phone in your valuable practices as soon as possible and blow off everything else other than working at the main place to buy food from time to time to pay for the meals [Chinese food always provides bang for the buck] which keep your energy up. If you stick to just practicing, eating and working when necessary, you should clear the requirements with the scout and the skipper to get called up to AAA and then the majors. There is a screen which shows you if you're currently "clear" or not.)

There are many amazing little nuggets of realism here which truly set this game apart from its competition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best baseball game in a while November 19, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Granted, I never had the chance to play the predecessor to this game...but as it stands, this is the best baseball game I've ever played as a video game. The graphics are crisp, the play-by-play is OK (not spectacular, but not distractingly bothersome either.)

Unlike baseball games made by EA (and others), some rookie, light-hitting second baseball isn't going to start hitting 550 foot bombs just because you're controlling them...there is a definite amount of realism here that isn't in other games.

Also...there are tons of modes. Some modes you don't have have to play "baseball," but more of manage it.

The only negative thing that, even after a couple months of playing the game, is the ability to control the base runners. It's way too complex. Something like.. with your left hand fingers, use the nunchuck stick to select the baserunner you want to control, and then with the wiimote hand, control the runner by advancing, returning to the base, or stopping. However, since I can't readily think of a better solution that would allow the flexibility of baserunning, I'll leave it at 5 stars.

Would recommend this game to any true baseball fan...with the ability to trade, and tweak player profiles (for performance), this game will have a ton of replay value...you can always have an updated roster!
