  1. They took an existing series that worked; did a 180 when they lost their MLB license - and produced a product with more features that was even better.
  2. Much like you, I wish this was an official MLB game - which would definitely make it one of the best baseball games ever released - but it's still a great game of ball no matter how you look at it.

    A great baseball game. Load and Fire, which will surely be imitated in future baseball titles to come, is the most fun and satisfying hitting system to date. The pitching, baserunning and fielding is all vintage MVP.
  4. The mini-games are awesome, especially the batting challenge, which lets you get used to EA's "load and fire" batting system (which, we hear, was licensed from Club Jenna).

    I mean, it isn't a horrible game, I just don't think it's a great game. I'd like EA Sports to try at it again, I think they could really improve and make a great game. Full Review »

    Great baseball game. College baseball at its best. This game surpasses an aready great MVP 2005 MLB edition. This is a definite buy for baseball fans. Full Review »

    Not up to par with past years, but it looks like this is the beggining of a above average new series from EA.
