EA SPORTS™ Pure Swing System : Putting
the barrel of a bat on a baseball in flight may be the hardest task
in sports. Now, an all-new hitting model rewards the perfect swing
and lets skilled users put the best the pitcher has to offer into play
to generate offense.
Big Play Control : MVP 's all-new
Big Play Control brings complete user control to the diamond. Control
diving and sliding catches, scale the wall to rob an opponent of a
home run, and user-controlled slides, double-play break-ups, and collisions
at home plate change the way the game is played.
Control the Front Office: Build the
ultimate franchise with an incredibly deep Dynasty Mode. Unique player
personality models force you to establish effective team chemistry
while building a team through your farm system, negotiating tough contract
demands, and motivating your club with dynamic team goals and rewards
that truly tests your skills in the front office.
Manager Mode : Manager Mode allows you
to control the game from the dugout using a set of strategic per-at-bat
decisions. When your team is at the plate you can call the steal, have
your batter lay down the sac bunt, or try to go deep. Your pitchers
can go after the hitter, pitch around him, or get conservative and
call the intentional walk. The decisions are all yours.
