Derek Jeter Pro Baseball 2008

A few weeks ago Gameloft was kind enough to take me to watch the Yankees beat Seattle. I also got a chance to play the new Derek Jeter Pro Baseball for mobile phones. I was actually pretty impressed with it and found it very playable. Graphics are getting better on mobile all the time and I thought this looked like it could be PS-One quality, but a lot smaller than a typical TV. That's really neither here nor there but I just thought that I would point it out because I'm usually a little bit too much of a snob to say that a mobile game is good.

The lowdown on the game is that it is fun to play and a pretty good baseball game. Baseball fans will be pleased to see batting and pitching statistics for every team. There are also little Derek Jeter moments where you can learn some tips and some stuff about the life of a big time ball player.

There's some skill required for hitting and pitching but it was easy to pick up. The controls are pretty standard. Gameplay is fluid and smooth, and as usual, I didn't like fielding. There are a bunch of game modes such as home run derby, single game, and season.
