    MVP has it with the franchise mode, It blows other games away with the depth and length of the owner mode. Trading for Prior or Pujols is vitually impossible, which is very realistic... I do think EA can take some things from it's Madden series with multiplayer Franchise and numerical player rankings rather than a value meter. Every game is still using the two team 3 player max trade MVP has it with the franchise mode, It blows other games away with the depth and length of the owner mode.

Every game is still using the two team 3 player max trade system. I think they should allow 6 player deals from each team and multiteam deals to add realism. The Gameplay is ok but if anyone would bother to put some time into ASB2005 and the 3D cursor they would be blown away, best baseball gameplay belongs to ASB. Combine the Gameplay and Graphics of ASB with the Franchise in MLB and you have my dream game! Expand

    Great Game play, but there is a complete absence of multiplayer and season mode. If they would take the Madden Owner's Mode and give that freedom and interface to this gameplay. THis would be the best game on the market, but right now.... even though it has great gameplay.... its still just a 6.

    The left handed hitter bug and the player progression bug affect both the game dynamics and the franchise mode’s lasting value respectively.

    There is just so much here to do, and so many players to play with, all with their own distinctive styles.

    Interestingly enough, EA has served up a baseball title that will keep you interested in hardball. Nuanced controls like the Pure Swing System let you toggle the left thumbstick of your controller to dig out low pitches, reach for a hanging curve or, in our case, just fan the air where you thought the ball should have appeared.
