I got this game thinking it would be a fun simulation for my future, since i plan to go to college for sports management and become a GM or some front office. This game just made me cry because it is so horrible. Lets start off with stats. There is a rating between 80 and 20. Thats dumb, i think 80 is just an average player. Ryan Howard started with a 75 rating, but the next season he just randomly dropped to a 50. A 50!!!!!!!!?! The menus are confusing and a lot of them dont allow you to do what you want to do. If you want to send down a player to AAA and bring up a player from AAA to MLB, well you cant do that because thers only one move at a time. So you have to send your player to short season, call up to mlb, then call up to AAA. Confusing? Yes. Also, completing trades is next to impossible. Usually in a game there is a Interest bar to tell you how interested the team is in your trade. Well there is none of that. You have to play the guessing game, and then wait 2 days to be rejected by the team. you have no clue what they want in return. Also signing free agents are rigged. I could not sign Scott Eyre because he wanted a $2 million bonus for a Cy young award and alll star award. He is a reliever, and never will be an all star or a cy young. Come on developers. The AI is not smart like they said, its FUSTRATING!!! Also you are not alowed to play the actual games, obviously. I could care less about playing them. If you are a baseball fan, stay away, this game might be good by 2014 if they make a game every year. PS; on the back of the case it says the game has trophies, its a lie. This game does not contain any trophies.
