Richard Grisham reports:
''After a woefully lacking baseball debut last season on the DS, publisher 2K Sports went back to the drawing board, realizing that (surprise!) Nintendo's portable powerhouse was no place for a sports sim. Between the machine's capabilities, controls, and target market, it was time for a redesign. Creating a new franchise from scratch is hardly a simple task either, but MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars is more than capable on all fronts. A little more spit 'n' polish, and it would've wound up circling the bases in triumph.''
