So what if you want to get deep play mechanics and stat management out of the game? Well, that's here too. The game features all of the MLB players and parks and the rosters and player stats can be adjusted at anytime during the season to reflect any trades or slumps. The A.I. has also been tweaked over last year's version, including a new fielding mechanic.
As you accomplish things in-game, you'll earn points that you can use to unlock new items like new batting/ pitching stances (for your created character) as well as new parks or cards. All three versions of the game will feature all of the same modes, with the only difference being the control mechanics, which are based around the particular systems. All will feature 1-on-1 Multiplayer (though no Online) and as an added function, Wii owners will be able to download their created characters onto their Wii-mote and upload him on their buddy's Wii.
MLB PowerPro 2008 may not have the same gritty, ultra-realistic look as other baseball games, but don't let the game's looks fool you. The game has a definite charm to it that could possibly win over even the most hardcore of players. Look for our review shortly.
