I just wanted to share some opinions with people who rushed out to get it ... I would have had it release day but you have to wait a couple of days in Newfoundland ... that sucks, anyhoo ...
Overall the controls work well and the controls are fun. I've never seen anything like the pitching before, the catcher calls for pitches, and when you throw him the pitch he wants, it usually results in a strike. Batting is of course a laugh and I like how you can control where you hit. Best of all the difficulty is totally customizable ... if you want to see (insert crappy team name here) win another championship, here is you're chance!
Of course I do have some small grieviences with the game. The graphics (wii version) were only slightly above terrible, I'm left wondering if the PS2 version looks better. The soundtrack is rubbish, it's all weird rock music instead of straight out kick-ass rock. And finally no effort was put into getting the wiimote speaker to work - I totally miss that 'crack' sound the Wii Sports Baseball makes.
Oh well, still worth the $50 CAN I guess. I would recommend it for sports fans but if you're not that into baseball save your money and play Wii Sports.
