    Gameplay is ok. I do have a major problem like Marc S. where substitutions lock up the PSP. This sucks especially when you are at the bottom of the 9th... I have a habit of saving the game. I know that the game can't be as good as the PS2 version because of storage, BUT, it would;ve been nice to have a reason to rotate your players. There is no stamina for your team so you can always Gameplay is ok. I do have a major problem like Marc S. where substitutions lock up the PSP.

    This game is great fun when it works, and were it not for the bug described below, I'd give it an 8. The first copy I had worked great for about an hour, then started locking up the system whenever the CPU made a substitution. Now my second copy has started locking up when substitutions are made after about 3 hours of gameplay.

Now my second copy has started locking up when substitutions are made after about 3 hours of gameplay. This is the first EA Sports title I've ever bought, and it'll probably be the last. For a company to charge $50 for a piece of software with obvious bugs like this is unforgivable. Kiss my butt, EA sports. I'll be dropping this turd of a game off at your headquarters tomorrow and asking for my money back from you personally, since the store I bought it from won't give refunds on open software. Expand

    I rented MLB while waiting on MVP to come out. I wasted my time. MVP's graphics remind me of PS1and trying to play on any level besides rookie is nearly impossible. During the homerun derby you have to swing immediately after the pitcher releases the ball. Pathetic game and way below EA standards. On the other hand I was pleasantly surprised by MLB by 989.

This game runs incredibly smooth and the graphics are excellent. Very realistic with little waiting time between pitches and outs. I used to be a big 989 fan during the PS1 days but EA stole the show. 989 has made me a fan all over again. Expand

  1. Gameplay definitely takes some getting use to, due to the design of the PSP.

    If this title had come out before the console version, I'm sure we'd have been amazed by its accomplishments, rather than puzzled by its mistakes.
  3. Sure you’ll miss the features found on the bigger boys (Owner Mode or even Spring Training Mode) but there’s just no denying how good this game feels in your hands.
