In a nutshell: MLB Blitz

0:01 This minute was mostly spent staring at various loading screens.

The options screen has only three settings: Difficulty, number of innings, and vibration. Such simplicity! I think I'm going to like this game.

I choose play now and dive into a Cincinnati vs. St. Louis match. Well, after another loading screen, that is.

"Hi everyone. This is The Bigs," says a decent-sounding announcer (whose name I fail to catch). Before I know it, I'm at bat. A circle shows where the ball will land in the strike zone -- high and outside. I swing and a slow-motion diving catch by the first baseman means I'm out. The other team gets 17,500 "points." I hope those aren't interchangeable with runs.
