Summary

One of the best sports games on the market, hitting a grand slam in every category. Five fun game modes in one game means baseball fans will have their life signed over to Konami for improving on an already polished title without it being a complete re-hash.

We like

  • Insane depth
  • Multiple, diverse game modes
  • Great for learning Japanese

We dislike

  • Import only
  • No chance of localization
  • Bad AI fielding dynamics

(continued from previous page) ...any kind, as long as you enjoy playing baseball it will help improve your basic reading skills as you would be seeing similar kanji and words on a regular basis compared to trying to learn Japanese through an RPG.

Professional Baseball Spirits 2013 is a must-buy for any baseball fan. The amount of game modes, diversity, and replayability is unmatched in any sports game on the market. Game modes were improved upon with new additions instead of being a complete rehash, giving a reason for importers to put down 2012 rather than skipping a year. Being an import title and it being the Japanese league will make some shy away as it can be intimidating, but those who are adventurous and want to learn about the Japanese league will not regret the EBay prices.

Summary: The best sports game on the market, hitting a grand slam in every category. Five fun game modes in one game means baseball fans will have their life signed over to Konami for improving on an already polished title without it being a complete re-hash.
