    It's getting a bit of a late start considering we're already more than halfway through the 2008 season, but MLB Power Pros is the best baseball game you'll find on the Wii. [Sept 2008, p.88]
  2. Try the Mario baseball game for cute, or a more realistic MLB title for robust realism.
  3. The baseball portions are fun, but the game ironically doesn't focus much on hardball at all, and the other modes are tedious and confounding.
  4. While Power Pros 2008 offers an undeniably massive amount of modes and options, we could’ve easily waited until next spring for a truer, fuller follow-up. Veterans of last season’s title have pretty much played this game already, but it is a nice place to start if you’re new to the series.

The cartoon-y look and play animations kind of add to the charm, I think. It also takes a bit to get good at it, especially at anything other than the 'normal' difficulty settings. I like that in particular, so you don't have players hitting 5 homers per game. I typically play as the Cubs and my players' stats have been very close to the real world.

    Overall, it's a great game and highly recommended.

The play is fairly intuitive and engaging, only dragging when you're up (or down) by a bunch. A fun play but not one that you'll get lost in (like similar EA titles available on PS). Full Review »
