Did we miss something on diversity?

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this authentic game is appropriate for all ages. Players have complete control over every aspect of the game, from the lineup (which can include their favorite major-league stars) to the speed of each pitch. However, younger players may need more time and patience to master the hand-eye coordination that is required to maneuver the players around the field.

What’s It About?
MVP BASEBALL 2004 is a kid-friendly video game that's as realistic as the professional game played in big league parks throughout the country. The game is appropriate for players 6 years and older.
Just like the live game, this game requires a great deal of hand-eye coordination, so younger players may find the game frustrating at first.
Is It Any Good?
The only potential downside is the degree of commercialism. You'll find players decked out in authentic uniforms and stadiums are filled with advertisements from real sponsors, just like in a real major-league park. Unlike some of the EA games, however, the players do conduct themselves in a professional manner, with very little talking during the game. Those who don't appreciate baseball may find the pace of the game slow compared with some of EA's other action sports games.
Overall, this game can be enjoyed by baseball fans of all ages. It's the kind of game that your kid will not master in a matter of minutes. There are hundreds of options and the games are challenging, making it entertaining enough to capture players' attention for hours. Your young baseball fans will keep coming back for more!
