Sports games have started to turn a corner, taking a road back to the early days of gaming. Instead of being an in-depth, almost simulation like experience, we're starting to see sports games focus on just having fun. Forget the complex pitching and hitting patterns, just swing your controller like you're swinging a bat or throwing a pitch. Say bye-bye to the motion captured ultra realistic player models, which still don't look quite right. Instead say hello to marshmallow shaped characters that will probably remind older gamers of the classic RBI Baseball series. MLB Power Pros 2008 doesn't try to reinvent the baseball videogame; instead it provides a rather thorough and entertaining game that should satisfy your baseball cravings.
