I know most of QJ bashes sports games, but I bet there a few people like me who do enjoy them. Of course, my favorite has been the MLB series the past few years and since I am a baseball nut, I had to pick this up to day(first next gen sports title). So far I have only played one game and I am blown away by it. The new Nationals stadium looked pretty darn impressive, the characters and there mannerisms were almost dead on, gameplay was solid as always, and the announcers were actually good. Generally, they repeat the same phases and its almost always a few seconds late, but so far this game doesn't have that.
My first game was crazy to. I was the Yankees (duh) visiting the Nats(wanted to see the stadium). Lasted 15 innings. Got off to a slow start with Hughes giving up 3 in 2 innings. I rebound with a 6 run outburst in the 5th and hit a big 3 run shot with A-rod. I then gave up a 2 run shot with Hughes and called it a day for him. Pinch hit for Hughes and hit a 2 run shot with shelly duncan ( just like 07, he did it so much) Joba struggled a bit and i gave up a 2 run bomb making it 8-7. Called on Mo to finish the deal and I promptly hung a fastball. Nick Johnson took me out. Game went on to extra innings and I had 2 men on in the 13th, no out. Hit a shot with Damon but it got robbed(ROBBED) at the wall. (Crushing blow) hit into a DP with Jeter. Game went on 2 more innings before I gave up another Johnson longball. Tough loss but an epic game.
So anyone else playing/plan to play this?
