    Fans of the scrolling-text style of iOOTP Baseball will be in their element in this edition. And while the gameplay itself remains familiar and unchanged, it may not prove quite compelling enough for all but the most ardent slugger fans.

    iOOTP Baseball 2013 is still fun, but there's definite issues with the series that remain unaddressed in its third incarnation.
