I have played every year, and every year I am amazed how much I love this game. It is hard for me to put it down It plays smooth and the commentary gets better, even though they are off sometimes, but come on its hard to predict everything that will happen in this game since baseball is so unpredictable. ROAD TO THE SHOW IS ADDICTING! I love playing this mode because its fast pace and you are always wanting to get to your next at bat or throw your next game. Also the new post season mode is great because you are able to take a team that may never been to a world series to take them there without having to play a full season. EVERY SPORTS LOVER PLAY THIS GAME!
