  1. Good, simple baseball is fun for parties and special occasions, though it becomes a bit repetitive when played solo for extended periods of time.
  2. Altogether, I enjoyed MLB Power Pros for the PS2, but I don't think it's a perfect casual game experience. It still straddles the line between hardcore and casual, and it occasionally dips too far into either side to be enjoyed by everyone
  3. While Power Pros 2008 offers an undeniably massive amount of modes and options at a terrific $20 price, we could’ve easily waited until next spring for a truer, fuller follow-up.
  4. It’s probably worth the purchase if you’ve got a kid who happens to be a big baseball fan, and that means that 2K and Konami hit their goal. …kind of.
  5. For those still clinging on to their PS2, MLB Power Pros 2008 is a decent purchase but I would encourage you to rent the game beforehand as it probably isn't for everyone.

    MLB Power Pros 2008 is THE game that introduced me to Baseball.
    It definitely looked strange for its art style but it got some kind of a very powerful and strange charm to the characters it looks kiddie friendly that's for sure but deep down inside there's a sign of integrity
    naive,professionalism,determination,sportsmanship courage and will to be the best player in them.
    But undeniably cute just to look at and the real magic happens when you play a match they come alive
    and pumped you keep playing!
    All your dreams to be success in Baseball will all be come true and fulfill here.
    Want to experience the journey to be a player? Go to Success mode.
    Wanna to live a baseball life of your favorite player go to MLB life mode.
    Want to create your very own team? go to arrange mode.
    Wanna be a manager to control the whole team go to League mode. It's a Baseball game for life,you just don't play this game,you live with it!
