I am a huge baseball fan. I download this app thinking it will be fun. I was wrong. You cant even see the ball! I understand that games should be challenging. But the commands are so hard to control. I don't know how this works. Please just let me drag my player to where it has to go. Don't buy this thing.

Absolutely terrible
by Farsideface on 2017/06/23 02:13
This game is deplorable. Gameplay is stagnant and horribly unrealistic. Game physics are a joke. This piece steaming feces should be scrapped and replaced with rug burns. Cause rug burns are far more desirable than than this junk. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. EVER.
Left up to fate
by Bran Muffin Guy Thing Person on 2017/05/10 23:48
This is a fun game when you can play it, but when it is in autoplay, it is left up to fate. I find it difficult to enjoy when I am playing well, but am always stick in Tampa because autoplay stinks.
Overall good
by dillonbremer on 2017/05/10 14:31
Overall I love the game but my biggest complaint is that half of the time most of my at-bats in a game are just simulated through and my rating at the end of the game is "overmatched" or "benchwarmer" even though the one at-bat I got to play might have been a double. On other thing is the "Statistics" where it says career I expected it to keep a running total over all my career but that gets reset every season like it was just my season stats. Those are just some things that could use a fixing but other than that I'm happy with the game.
Mlb franchise
by Soonerniner on 2017/04/27 14:47
Just started playing but it's seems like a really fun game. But it would be better if you pitched every batter up but all in all its a good game

Not For Baseball Players
by Ballplayer1712 on 2016/12/25 20:07
I've played baseball on a field from little league through college and I've played baseball video, computer, and phone games for 25 years. This is the WORST I've played. The hitting especially is just ridiculous. No logic or consistency to it at all. I can see how people would get frustrated and throw their hard earned money into a game like this. PLEASE DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS!!!
Way too difficult to gain xp.
by Gsi u bdks on 2016/11/22 10:34
Way too hard level up. Needs a few tweaks and updates but overall great game
Horrible Game

Hitting too hard
by Jsnjxixmdndikdndndn on 2016/10/09 01:49
Hitting is way too hard. I adjusted my swipe like the game suggested, but it didn't work. I went 9 for 104 in my first 25 games.

Frustrating
by Nadia Noodles on 2016/08/19 15:43
Good concept, but I'll hit line drives into the outfield, and it'll say I grounded out, or a little dribbler is a double. Also it crashes a lot, and doesn't save. I hit a walk-off HR in the bottom of the 17th, the game crashed, and it didn't save. Overall, glitchy but nice idea.
Awful

Good but😐
by Iceaddwhelll on 2016/07/21 17:25
It is addictive but every time your team is in 4th place even if you start off with them in first they go all the way down to 4th place next season that happens with every team your with it is very annoying and your team would never make the playoffs or championship
Fun but hard.

Waste of Time
by ZSC1323 on 2016/07/07 00:36
I downloaded this app, hoping for an actual adventure. Although I was hoping it would actually start you from the rookie class, it jumps you up to A Class right away. It is impossible to hit the ball for the first few days. Then the graphics are horrible. But then again, what did you expect? It crashes every 3 games as well, along with money eating scams for MLB Bucks, the currency you waste on upgrading your very badly detailed character. I deleted this game, and I advise you to noy buy this awful game.
Meh
by Unitedmine on 2016/07/01 13:53
The game wouldn't let me do most of the batting or fielding situations. Fix this or I'm done with the game.

Fun addicting. Some issues
by shadraq.theedge on 2016/06/07 19:49
So I bought he doublers and have spent $6 on the game. I like it but there are some games when I go 0-4 without evening being allowed to try to bat. It's almost as if the software glosses over my turn and I'm simply watching a sim. Sort of frustrating. Please fix. Great game. I paid for it and don't feel totally ripped off but for the money it should be fixed and better in this regard. When I can't seem to get a turn and my averages suffer it's wildly frustrating. I played a 20 inning game and had only 2 ABs and 4 fielding opportunities. Crazy frustrating.
Pretty fun game
by bronco208 on 2016/05/23 23:39
Just started,pretty fun ,will see how far I get before having to pay
Non-user friendly, money pit.
by There all tokin on 2016/05/17 12:04
This game is just to horrible in too many ways. The biggest thing I hate is I have all the things to bat BUT IT WONT LET ME BAT. All the simulators are just plain bad and pitching doesn't make any sense to me. Also a major glitch in the game is that I will do absolutely perfect in a game and I'm really excited to see my awesome rating and I'm just stunned to watch my rating say "bench warmer" and I'm just like c'mon game. I'm pretty sure that is because it is simulating my performances and is making me play horribly. I used to play a flash game with the same playing concept(the exact same game but soccer) but when ever you were doing something you would do it. This game is a decent game only if they fix some of there terrible non-user friendly mistakes.
Addicting and fun, minor glitches
by Skamaster77 on 2016/05/15 07:02
First off, this is a fantastic game overall. No ads bothering you during gameplay, and it doesn't require data to play. Starting from A ball and working your way to MLB is so much fun. I only have two complaints with it. First, when you take a swing, it's almost like it's pre-determined whether it's an out or not. You can blast it and it says you flied out, or you can roll it to third and it says you doubled. Really kind of odd in my opinion, but it is what it is. Secondly, once you reach the bigs, it fails to remember your career stats. It'll reset after you play a season or two, which is annoying, and the game loses its appeal at that point, for me. One area for improvement or update would be to remember your career stats and have a leaderboard of some sort to compare your stats with others. Other than that stuff, this is a really great game you can play anytime, data connection or not. Highly recommended for baseball fans. A couple tips: if you're only getting a couple at-bats per game, turn up the effort. It uses more of your energy throughout the game, but if you manage your resources properly and can refill your energy as needed, it'll help you progress quicker through the game. Also, if you want to be a great hitter, focus on items that boost your hitting, instead of speed or fielding. You'll figure out what's what by looking at the icons.
Love it
by Piggy1226 on 2016/05/12 11:51
I all ways want a game like this case I like to watch the show 16 a lot with toth and this is what he dose I love it

by Amazing it's game I the world on 2016/04/10 01:55
It's very annoying to play when your fielding shortstop it's like it's always a wild throw!!
It's so hard!!
by Jered225 on 2016/04/05 13:39
I really really love the idea of this game and I know you made it easier to hit in the update and I make contact and put the ball in play but I can not get a single or a double to save my life and it gets very frustrating!!
Worst game ever
by clow242 on 2016/04/02 15:02
This game needs a lot of work. Trying to hit in this game is horrible. You have to spend money to get better.
So far ... So good

Fun game and really gets the daily grind of a baseball season. The batting isn't natural for me, but I like the simulation.
A lot of fun
by Dylan Bode on 2016/03/06 10:01
The bad reviews are overly critical. It sure has been addicting and fun. This is a great app for baseball fans who want to play a fun game. Just be patient with your player.
Nice concept
by Salmon slap on 2016/03/06 01:19
I love games that let you play career mode and franchise mode. This game has a great start to that concept, the problem is that half the time you don't get to be your own player. How are you supposed to get better if you only get to actually bat once a game? And a practice mode would be nice. Apparently your swing is different based on how fast, long and direction of your swipe. Hard to figure out what works when you only play live games and only get one or two at bats per game... Also, not enough time to check the situation before the pitcher starts chucking it.
Useless
by PM one on 2016/02/19 12:22
This has to be the most useless game ever created. It's garbage- don't waste your time.
Poor game
by Ninersfan123453 on 2016/02/18 05:53
Not fun game at all. Too hard to hit, not realistic hitting. Many time would hit a fly ball and say ground out. Couldn't hit at all put lots of training in on hitting and my guy was 6-102 in single A. How fun is that? It isn't. Also energy and equipment drain so fast that you can't replace it without spending money, very disappointed.

The definition of this game is- MLB Franchise- a. The best game ever created by man kind b. Savage c. A true cure to any disease
1st Time To Write A Review
by ShergTheBeast on 2016/02/06 14:54
I have never written a review but I had to with this game. This is the worst travesty I have ever seen. Want to be a switch hitter? Too bad. Heck want to bat left-handed? Too bad you're right-handed hitter with no jersey number. After every game you have to spend money to repair your glove, cleats, and bat. Yup it's that bad. If your player is getting tired you could purchase a bottle of water for $100 that'll give him half of his energy. For $100 bottle of water I expect to urinate gold streams and my sweat to turn into delicious Gatorade. The way you hit/swing the stick is some stupid swipe up mechanic that rarely works. I hit balls clearly over the third baseman's head but it cuts the way and tells me I have been thrown out at first. Maybe since I hadn't repaired my cleats my guy tripped and fell coming out of the batters box. Silly me what was i thinking playing with One day old cleats without repairing them for $49 first. By the time you figure out how to throw the ball to first base it will probably be like the fourth or fifth game of the season (cuz of a horrible awkward reverse swipe that I can't explain the logic) and you will have committed about 19 errors already. The first three games I played all went 18 innings and finished 1-0 game. Anyone who gave above a one star rating is either lying or they still play Atari baseball when they get home or theyve never actually seen or played a baseball game. I cannot believe MLB would put their name on this apptrocity. If even one person made even one in app purchase, someone should slap you silly and I would bet the developers of this appbomination are laughing at you hysterically. Like real life laughing out loud where they probably spit fluids out of their mouth if they happen to be drinking something at the time. Yes this game was so bad I spent this much time writing a review
Hitting is too difficult
by Blow u on 2016/02/03 14:43
Shouldn't use the swipe method. Try a button. The timing will direct the ball where to go. Just like all other baseball games. Fix it!

by Gjkiccvivbofifi on 2015/12/23 13:29
This is a very fun game. After you kind of master it, it's boring until you get to playoffs. After winning something like 10 straight World Series over the course of a year I just had my streak end because of a fluky bug. As the top team in the playoffs (with 40 more wins than any other team) I was in a 1 game wild card series and lost. If I'm not mistaken the 2 wildcard teams play a 1 game playoff series, not the top team.

Way to hard to hit
by Jarrett Farrar on 2015/12/04 00:28
This game is way to hard to be fun. If you're looking for a challenge,this is the game. You should be able to hit easier. Steadily keeping a horrible average.

Three words awesome cool and fun
Impossible to get a hit
by BonezFAM on 2015/10/24 19:46
Good idea, but you literally CANNOT even hit. Absolutely no fun because you cannot hit at all. You make contact but it's always a ground out with weak contact. Zero chance of getting a hit.
Absolutely horrible
by Kingfade88 on 2015/10/22 21:00
The game is horrible to me. The game makes it so hard to hit that it'll make you delete the game 10 minutes after you download it. The progression stuff is stupid and the gear and energy makes absolutely no sense at all. Can you guys please make some major improvements to this game? Because it would really help the people who actually have the time to play this game so please make it worth it.
Do bug fixes and updates
by Benjccjgfv on 2015/10/02 14:29
It is a good game but it lags and cuts off update this game it has potential
Needs help
by DodgerzFan on 2015/09/26 16:34
Not realistic. The whole inconsistency is frustrating.The reason why is because when I get a gap hit, it says "Flied Out". Also when I get benched, I lose ALL my progress to AA

this has the same idea but the graphics are not great, i played a mlb 12 on my ds and it has better graphics than this. I dont have ps4 so no mlb 15 the show , i have to play mlb 12 on xbox, cause it is realistic than playing rbi baseball we need better baseball games!
Alright.…
by Sportsman1024 on 2015/08/16 02:14
I love baseball so when I saw this game I thought it would be awesome. Well it's actually alright. The game concept of starting in A and progressing to the majors is cool. Playing as a made up character in a farm system is awesome. Being able to field and bat is also cool. The parts I don't like is that 1. You have to wait a whole day to play after you play one game. Unless you use coins which is very easy to run out of. 2. It takes at-bats away from you. You can't swing every at-bat. It mostly just strikes you out when this occurs. So overall, this game is alright. So would I recommend it probably not.
Ok but.....
by MarlinsFan22 on 2015/08/04 20:56
The concept of the game is great. Trying to be the best in your organization is awesome. The controls are easy and quick. The bad parts of this game is the simulation. You don't get to play all your fielding chances or at bats. Whenever the at bat simulates, you always strike out. Some games you don't even get to do anything so then you go 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts and a pop fly out. And then your performance rating is overmatch or bench warmer which makes your meter go way down so you can't move from AA to AAA. And when you play the whole game it freezes so you lose your progress. If you are ok with not playing and your player doing bad, then this is for you.
Good game
by Wbid is ok on 2015/08/01 01:41
Good game but it is almost nearly impossible to get anything other than a weak hit
Great game, Just a few errors
by Crystalle98 on 2015/07/29 18:47
This is not a perfect game Whenever I am playing a game there would be times when the at bat would go up by one or two but I didn't even swing for that time Also how do you even get home runs Every time my swing goes deep it would end in a double or triple or even a single You play both offense and defense which is a plus Your chances for success is great Great game You play both offense and defense which is a plus

Horrible
by Jame5lamo on 2015/07/23 04:11
I can't even log on to the game it just has the mlb logo at the begging so useless
Another money hunting game
by Smain87 on 2015/07/15 01:16
I only give it one star because 0 is not an option. Just another money hunting game where the only way to progress or get any better is by paying. As a fielder you constantly go up little by little with 4-5 hitting games and no fielding errors but then one game will go 1-4 with no errors and drop your progress to the next call up back where it started. As a pitcher it is worse, you can throw a shut out and move up just a little bit but then give up 1 or maybe 2 runs the next game with 10+ strike outs and still win but your progression to the next call up drops. Ridiculous game, only good thing is playing against actual teams from A, AA, and AAA

Teams aren't updated... My player played for all the wrong minor league teams for the pro team he was a prospect for. I suspect the algorithm is poorly written - I assume it places equal emphasis on batting for pitchers (lame) because I stupidly bought power ups (first time I've ever made an in-app purchase) and somehow I'm winning .62% of my games and pitching a league-leading 1.4 era, and batting .308 (as a pitcher) and I somehow keep getting demoted to AAA. I'll pitch a shutout (but not have any offensive hits), and the status would be downgraded to "benchwarmer." I use coins to get those +3 team batting power ups, and I'll lose the game 0-3... And this has happened many times. Just totally lame and the cash power ups are a ripoff. Disappointed the MLB would put its name on such a poor product.

I like that this game isn't like most where you succeed right away. You have to work at it before you can get good. However, at some point you'd like to see a rhyme or reason as to why certain things don't work out, why do I hit 5 good balls in a game and fly out every time then get my ABs taken away next game (??). could certainly use a better tutorial and maybe some fixes altogether.

Dumbest game in history
Addicting and fun, minor glitches
by Skamaster77 on 2016/05/15 07:02
First off, this is a fantastic game overall. No ads bothering you during gameplay, and it doesn't require data to play. Starting from A ball and working your way to MLB is so much fun. I only have two complaints with it. First, when you take a swing, it's almost like it's pre-determined whether it's an out or not. You can blast it and it says you flied out, or you can roll it to third and it says you doubled. Really kind of odd in my opinion, but it is what it is. Secondly, once you reach the bigs, it fails to remember your career stats. It'll reset after you play a season or two, which is annoying, and the game loses its appeal at that point, for me. One area for improvement or update would be to remember your career stats and have a leaderboard of some sort to compare your stats with others. Other than that stuff, this is a really great game you can play anytime, data connection or not. Highly recommended for baseball fans. A couple tips: if you're only getting a couple at-bats per game, turn up the effort. It uses more of your energy throughout the game, but if you manage your resources properly and can refill your energy as needed, it'll help you progress quicker through the game. Also, if you want to be a great hitter, focus on items that boost your hitting, instead of speed or fielding. You'll figure out what's what by looking at the icons.
Great game minus the moments where they don't let you play
by K. Polanco on 2014/03/18 18:21
This game is awesome. Going from A to the MLB is great. The game is very addictive and sometimes you find yourself playing a whole season in almost a day. There is just one problem. Sometimes the game takes your at bats away. You may get a chance to swing for one or two at bats and then the game decides to hit for you. You turn into a spectator rather than a player. Seems silly because the player basically gets 4 at bats a game. There have also been moments where the game is on the line and the game instead stakes your at bat and even strikes you out. I'm not a fan of this part of the game. I want to be able to play the game and not miss at bats. Other than that, the game is great.
Fun... to a point
by j h n on 2014/10/31 17:29
I enjoy baseball sims, and Franchise MVP strikes a nice balance between action and strategy. You can create a player from the ground up - starting off in A ball then progressing through to the majors. Throughout the journey to the bigs, you have to make trade offs acquiring the training points and energy levels necessary to have maximum impact (at bats for batters, batters faced for pitchers) in each game. Gameplay on the iPad mini is especially nice. Where the game experience breaks down is once you have progressed to the majors. As a player, you can swat a lot of homers, attain a lot of Player of the Games, and win multiple World Series. Aside from more MLB bucks, there is no reward. One would expect at least to be christened MVP after a dominating season. Sadly this isn't the case, which makes the gameplay after reaching the majors rather pointless.m Add to that the multiple bugs (mentioned in other reviews, but especially irritating when career stats do not accumulate season to season), and this game is only a three stars.
Good but not great
by Austin Strain on 2014/06/22 03:49
Great game but I wish it was more like Road To The Show. I like how you can use different items and train your own player. The batting is really questionable I'm sure. I don't like how the pitcher will always pitch strikes and no balls. It would be better if they made it more realistic and gave me base hits that clearly shows it should be but it's not(I would fix that on the next update). Otherwise this game is very fun and it gets a lot better when your player gets better!
Non-user friendly, money pit.
by There all tokin on 2016/05/17 12:04
This game is just to horrible in too many ways. The biggest thing I hate is I have all the things to bat BUT IT WONT LET ME BAT. All the simulators are just plain bad and pitching doesn't make any sense to me. Also a major glitch in the game is that I will do absolutely perfect in a game and I'm really excited to see my awesome rating and I'm just stunned to watch my rating say "bench warmer" and I'm just like c'mon game. I'm pretty sure that is because it is simulating my performances and is making me play horribly. I used to play a flash game with the same playing concept(the exact same game but soccer) but when ever you were doing something you would do it. This game is a decent game only if they fix some of there terrible non-user friendly mistakes.
Not bad
by HankArmstrong on 2014/04/29 15:52
There's one major problem with this game: it inexplicably lowers your rating! A couple if days ago I was maxed out in all categories. This took a lot of coins and time. Today I open the game and my ratings have dropped to 76! That will be it playing this game for me. It also doesn't seem to matter what your rating is as I didn't play better or win more games with my team at 130 than I did with it at 70. The game should also have a quantity discount on items like water bottles and sports drinks. The gameplay is okay. I find hitting difficult but pitching is relatively easy until you get to MLB level. I haven't been able to get consistent results there and keep getting sent down to AAA.
Decent game, but still needs a lot of tweaks.
by Noiseradiostar on 2014/04/23 16:07
I downloaded the game before the easier hitting update and with the update i can finally hit pretty well. However, i would echo all the other problems people have mentioned: Still stuck in Single A after 2 seasons, only 1-2 ab's per game, computer sim rarely gives me hits, every other game goes 16 innings & drains my energy (plus the sim hates me so i usually go 0 for 8), almost never get rbi's or hr 's (seriously...what does it take to hit a hr?). Despite all this i still find myself playing it. The game has a lot of potential. I really hope the developers read the reviews and fix the flaws.

Reptitive and limiting
by ledhotzepper on 2014/04/08 14:30
Once I had reached the MLB with my 2B and filled up that progress bar, there wasn't anything left to do. I could still play in the World Series but the game doesn't really get more interesting. Just swipe really fast from the bottom right to top left and you should do well. I hit more doubles than singles, oddly enough. It's a time wasting game really. I don't want to lose my progress on my batter if I choose to play as a pitcher though. That's pretty silly that you can't have two players in the game. I just wanted to try out the pitching but I can't without losing my save game on my hitter. This needs to be changed.
Ok but.....
by MarlinsFan22 on 2015/08/04 20:56
The concept of the game is great. Trying to be the best in your organization is awesome. The controls are easy and quick. The bad parts of this game is the simulation. You don't get to play all your fielding chances or at bats. Whenever the at bat simulates, you always strike out. Some games you don't even get to do anything so then you go 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts and a pop fly out. And then your performance rating is overmatch or bench warmer which makes your meter go way down so you can't move from AA to AAA. And when you play the whole game it freezes so you lose your progress. If you are ok with not playing and your player doing bad, then this is for you.
Nice concept
by Salmon slap on 2016/03/06 01:19
I love games that let you play career mode and franchise mode. This game has a great start to that concept, the problem is that half the time you don't get to be your own player. How are you supposed to get better if you only get to actually bat once a game? And a practice mode would be nice. Apparently your swing is different based on how fast, long and direction of your swipe. Hard to figure out what works when you only play live games and only get one or two at bats per game... Also, not enough time to check the situation before the pitcher starts chucking it.
Another money hunting game
by Smain87 on 2015/07/15 01:16
I only give it one star because 0 is not an option. Just another money hunting game where the only way to progress or get any better is by paying. As a fielder you constantly go up little by little with 4-5 hitting games and no fielding errors but then one game will go 1-4 with no errors and drop your progress to the next call up back where it started. As a pitcher it is worse, you can throw a shut out and move up just a little bit but then give up 1 or maybe 2 runs the next game with 10+ strike outs and still win but your progression to the next call up drops. Ridiculous game, only good thing is playing against actual teams from A, AA, and AAA
A lot of fixes needed
by Action FlaxonJackson on 2014/05/23 01:30
Game is fun but has a lot of errors. If you leave the game while it's simulating you can lose your experience points even though the game says you can't. So people can pay real money for game dollars to increase their player attributes and have the real money literally wasted. In MLB you can get player of the game or impact player and have your meter for that level go down. Terrible glitch. Game has too many flaws in what is considered a "bad" game. Needs a lot of improvements. Could be better but is extremely mediocre with these horrific issues.
Game issues.
by SW411 on 2014/06/17 18:16
I Would like to see a batting cage, to practice hitting. Also never seen so many triple plays made during games played. Would like to see money earning just a bit more easily accomplished. I have two issues, I would like to see a pause our timeout added and the other issue is the player seems to strikeout a lot, when controlled by the game when simulated batting by the game. I also think that energy should remain strong while scoring during the game and weaken while being out scored or losing. Game tends to freeze and lock up at times.
Overall good
by dillonbremer on 2017/05/10 14:31
Overall I love the game but my biggest complaint is that half of the time most of my at-bats in a game are just simulated through and my rating at the end of the game is "overmatched" or "benchwarmer" even though the one at-bat I got to play might have been a double. On other thing is the "Statistics" where it says career I expected it to keep a running total over all my career but that gets reset every season like it was just my season stats. Those are just some things that could use a fixing but other than that I'm happy with the game.
Fun and addicting
by Gjkiccvivbofifi on 2015/12/23 13:29
This is a very fun game. After you kind of master it, it's boring until you get to playoffs. After winning something like 10 straight World Series over the course of a year I just had my streak end because of a fluky bug. As the top team in the playoffs (with 40 more wins than any other team) I was in a 1 game wild card series and lost. If I'm not mistaken the 2 wildcard teams play a 1 game playoff series, not the top team.
Its a good idea but............
by Dhjvdfhhfyiuiddv on 2014/06/06 12:23
This game is pretty fun but i have 2 suggestions. 1. How come you can only bat like 1 time in a game but then the next game you can bat 4 times? Why does its simulate your at bat. If he is your player you should be able to do everything with him. When ever he has a play on the field you should be making it. 2. The energy bar... Ok the energy bar should regenerate over time. So of i leave the game and its almost empty i come back 3 hours later it should be at least half way full. I mean common.
Fun addicting. Some issues
by shadraq.theedge on 2016/06/07 19:49
So I bought he doublers and have spent $6 on the game. I like it but there are some games when I go 0-4 without evening being allowed to try to bat. It's almost as if the software glosses over my turn and I'm simply watching a sim. Sort of frustrating. Please fix. Great game. I paid for it and don't feel totally ripped off but for the money it should be fixed and better in this regard. When I can't seem to get a turn and my averages suffer it's wildly frustrating. I played a 20 inning game and had only 2 ABs and 4 fielding opportunities. Crazy frustrating.
Horrible game, not realistic at all.
by Kobe80Moss on 2014/04/14 05:24
Played five seasons, still in single A, skill set went from 20's to 50's performance got worse not better. Batting is really out dated and impossible to perfect. I have been called out on a fielders choice when no one was on base. You can hit a double with a man on first and the never score; or hit a single with a man second and they never score. The game is programmed to have a lot of extra inning games many games going over 20 innings, the reason for this is so your equipment gets wore out faster so you eventually have to spend real money to get anywhere. Horrible product!!
Needs some improvements
by Kool man 69 on 2014/10/22 19:48
It would be better if the energy would recharge faster you almost have to pay Everytime just to pay which is hard to do when you first start off. Also you don't get very much money and everything is over priced. You would think since mlb is so big it would try to take so much real money. Lastly it's extremely hard just to get a hit. If they could fix this I would almost pay for the game
Fun sim
by M Jarrells on 2014/05/12 14:51
Fun sim that's still a little buggy. Base running logic still needs work, since on-base teammates never score unless you happen to get a triple or better. Also, they almost never knock you in. It's especially annoying to have all progress lost every time you do an update. I've come back to play more after two update shutdowns but it remains to be seen if I will if it happens again.
Wonderful, but...
by ilikethekitty on 2014/03/21 15:54
For someone who didn't used to be into fantasy sports games before playing 'MLB Ballpark Empire,' I found this game to be quite appealing and addictive. My only gripe is that the functionality of each position can be confusing to some at first, but after a while it becomes easier to manage the task of helping the player reach the bigs. Also recommended: MLB Ballpark Empire, Big Win MLB/NHL, etc.
Very Frustrating
by 28Posey on 2014/04/26 16:27
Whenever you're the hitter 99% of the time you get out and your team will lose. Whenever you're the pitcher you're team can never score any runs so you always lose or when you do score, the game will sim when you are pitching and will let the other team score like 4 in an inning to take the lead and won't let your team score anymore. Fix this. It has good potential to be a good game but right now it is god awful
Needs a lot of work
by bk786 on 2014/05/07 20:05
The game is actually somewhat addicting at first. Unfortunately, it falls short in several departments: 1) The game has a lot of in-app purchases, and most of the items are extremely overpriced 2) Graphics are not great, and all the pitchers look exactly the same 3) Hitting is very difficult beyond Double A. Im guessing that the reason is because the makers want you to spend money to upgrade your hitting, fielding, or pitching skills. If you're smart and don't spend ridiculous amounts of money, your hitters will have a very hard time against AAA or MLB pitchers. 4) swiping controls are also ridiculous. You have to drag your finger across your entire screen to get a hit, and this can be very annoying if you are playing on a tablet. All in all it is okay in some areas, but don't waste your time until they come out with another update.
Really enjoy it but...
by Ashley Evans on 2014/03/28 18:44
I really enjoy playing this game but it gets very frustrating when after a game it tells you that you were a backup or benchwarmer because your batting average was .000 for the game when it just simulated all of your at bats for you. Also, it's not very realistic cause just about every game goes into extra innings.
It's great, but...
by MissMindy1989 on 2014/07/16 22:13
While this game is very fun and addictive there is one issue in particular that really make me want to stop playing: 1) When pitching, it only allows me to pitch 3-4 times per game. Even when my pitches and fielding are perfect, the computer does a terrible job and let's the batters score an outrageous number of runs. I then get rated as "overmatched" even though the pitches I threw myself were perfect strikeouts. It then takes away points.
It's fun but..
by Thomas G Wilcox on 2015/03/28 03:54
This game is really fun. I like it. A lot. Biggest thing I don't like is it doesn't let you bat every time. It'll screw up my rating and stats. There's times it'll go an entire game and I won't get to bat once and my player doesn't get a single hit and I get an "overmatched" rating. I'm sure it's just a glitch, but it's unfair. If I'm going to get 0 hits I'd rather it be on my own accord, not let the computer decide for me. Otherwise it's a pretty cool game.
Please update
by BibleStudent3300 on 2015/03/05 18:05
This is my favorite app. It's provided many hours of enjoyment, but it has stopped loading again. I've accumulated many MLB bucks and coins, and I don't want to lose them by deleting the app and downloading it again. I also don't want to start over again in the minor leagues. I've already won the World Series so my progress is very important to me. This is the second time it's happened.
I Love All Things Baseball..
by ZMo6 on 2014/06/21 20:50
..Except this app. Sounds like a great idea. Create a player, train the player and try to make it to the big leagues! So why does the app control more than half the at-bats my player gets? If I want to watch a simulated game, I'd turn on the NY Mets. Also, there is no rhyme or reason to controlling the swing for the at-bats you do get to take. How long am I supposed to stay interested if every at bat is a "weak" hit to somewhere. It doesn't help that the only bat they offer when starting out is balsa. BALSA! It floats in the darn bathtub! This app is not well executed.
Horrible
by Gideyon on 2014/06/23 15:08
This game seemed promising but really suffered from bad controls. The camera angle while batting makes it hard to see on phones, which is a bad thing for a mobile game. The game takes away bats and fielding opportunities and puts them to random chance which defeats the purpose of the game because you become a spectator rather than a player in the game. The energy system needs to be overhauled completely as well. Lumping training into game energy is stupid because it makes it difficult to improve within the game.
Great game
by Math31392 on 2014/05/06 16:35
I've made it to the MLB club twice with in 4 season before and then quit playing for a bit b/c of draining my phone battery.. Tried to get back in to it keeps freezing after i make my player again usually a shortstop would still like to see a switch hitting additive to the game
Waste of Time
by ZSC1323 on 2016/07/07 00:36
I downloaded this app, hoping for an actual adventure. Although I was hoping it would actually start you from the rookie class, it jumps you up to A Class right away. It is impossible to hit the ball for the first few days. Then the graphics are horrible. But then again, what did you expect? It crashes every 3 games as well, along with money eating scams for MLB Bucks, the currency you waste on upgrading your very badly detailed character. I deleted this game, and I advise you to noy buy this awful game.

Good game when no glitches
by Kyle62245454 on 2014/03/30 11:19
I really enjoy this game. I'm on the verge of AAA. However the game won't let me load currently. I have tried everything I can think of. Hitting gets easier the more you practice. Raise your energy to. 2 lighting bolts, use the lowest equipment, and buy water. It's working out for me in my game. When I don't freeze while loading.
Very fun, but can use some tweaks
by TOX1Cbuilds on 2014/07/06 21:41
I find this game to be really fun to play. It's very addicting, but there are some things that could use some tweaking. Either the amount of money you get after each game is greater or the price of the water bottle needs to go down. Plus there needs to be a practice mode in the game!!
Excellent game with two exceptions
by Yodaman70 on 2014/06/16 00:20
Great game play however I agree that too often they play for your character. Also game like many others out there where you have pay to play or just not worth playing at all. For me, if I can play great. If not, I have plenty of other games.
Could you update the game plz?
by RJRonan on 2018/08/02 01:33
I remember having this app before and it was the GOAT! I really enjoyed it and I really miss playing it because of the new update on my phone. Could you maybe update the game so I can play again? I would really appreciate it.
Love The Game but Freezes
by *scubaguy* on 2014/03/29 15:33
The game is great and highly addictive but twice now I have gotten to the AAA level and the game stops loading up and I have to start the app all over again and lose all my progress. Very frustrating. Needs to be fixed.
I want this game back
by Bereghostgames1 on 2019/05/21 02:59
I loved playing this game a lot and hoping the developers brings it back with updating it to IOS11 and up. It was a game that was somewhat realistic and fun to play. I would play this everyday again if they update it.
GREAT Idea, BAD Gameplay
by Curtis R. Shideler on 2014/03/19 04:12
This is a great idea for an MLB game. It's like New Star Soccer but for baseball. BUT, it falls way short of what it could be. The batting mechanic is the WORST I've ever used in a game! I fly it over the first baseman's head but consistently get "thrown out at first." Rarely can you get on base. And can't tell whether I'm swinging at a ball or strike. ALSO, I finally scored my first 2 RBIs and guess what?!? The game froze. It really wants you to fail. And you will. Because it does.
Good but😐
by Iceaddwhelll on 2016/07/21 17:25
It is addictive but every time your team is in 4th place even if you start off with them in first they go all the way down to 4th place next season that happens with every team your with it is very annoying and your team would never make the playoffs or championship
Alright.…
by Sportsman1024 on 2015/08/16 02:14
I love baseball so when I saw this game I thought it would be awesome. Well it's actually alright. The game concept of starting in A and progressing to the majors is cool. Playing as a made up character in a farm system is awesome. Being able to field and bat is also cool. The parts I don't like is that 1. You have to wait a whole day to play after you play one game. Unless you use coins which is very easy to run out of. 2. It takes at-bats away from you. You can't swing every at-bat. It mostly just strikes you out when this occurs. So overall, this game is alright. So would I recommend it probably not.
Great
by bcl4164 on 2014/05/11 21:11
Great baseball simulator. Although you never play the entire game because it's mostly simulated the action parts are really fun. Okay part 2 of my review. Just changed my 4 star into a 5 star. I love how it individually focuses on you. This game is just outright amazing!!!
Great game, just needs some polishing.
by FireWarrior71 on 2014/08/31 12:51
I enjoyed playing this game. The only problems I have are that mini games are somewhat repetitive. And it crashes a lot. I can be in the middle of a game, it never fails, it crashes in the 7th or 8th. Just needs a little polishing.
Absolutely horrible
by Kingfade88 on 2015/10/22 21:00
The game is horrible to me. The game makes it so hard to hit that it'll make you delete the game 10 minutes after you download it. The progression stuff is stupid and the gear and energy makes absolutely no sense at all. Can you guys please make some major improvements to this game? Because it would really help the people who actually have the time to play this game so please make it worth it.
Game will not load
by Kman3636 on 2014/12/13 17:20
This is a fun game. But twice I have built my player up only to have the game no longer load on my iPad. It gets to the "Loading" screen, the gear icon in the lower right corner spins, and nothing happens. I definitely will never purchase anything in the in-app purchase option because you can easily lose it. Support at MLB could not help me.
Good game, could be better
by Raphy235 on 2014/03/31 22:41
Love the pitching.. Hard to get to the MLB however seems like you're actually in the minors. Also hard to get your overall up I'm in year 4 and I'm only a 30. The batting is impossible to me so I simply just don't play it.
Crashing
by jude ahmad on 2014/07/19 05:05
Right before every other game, the app crashes and takes me to my home screen. It will be 5 stars once they fix the bug and there should be more ways to earn mlbucks
Has potential
by SpeakImp on 2014/04/28 23:01
This game has potential, but the hitting mechanics are really difficult to pick up. It's also annoying that the game crashes frequently when trying to play consecutive games. Fix those issues and my rating will go up.

I am a huge baseball fan. I download this app thinking it will be fun. I was wrong. You cant even see the ball! I understand that games should be challenging. But the commands are so hard to control. I don't know how this works. Please just let me drag my player to where it has to go. Don't buy this thing.

Absolutely terrible
by Farsideface on 2017/06/23 02:13
This game is deplorable. Gameplay is stagnant and horribly unrealistic. Game physics are a joke. This piece steaming feces should be scrapped and replaced with rug burns. Cause rug burns are far more desirable than than this junk. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. EVER.
Left up to fate
by Bran Muffin Guy Thing Person on 2017/05/10 23:48
This is a fun game when you can play it, but when it is in autoplay, it is left up to fate. I find it difficult to enjoy when I am playing well, but am always stick in Tampa because autoplay stinks.
Overall good
by dillonbremer on 2017/05/10 14:31
Overall I love the game but my biggest complaint is that half of the time most of my at-bats in a game are just simulated through and my rating at the end of the game is "overmatched" or "benchwarmer" even though the one at-bat I got to play might have been a double. On other thing is the "Statistics" where it says career I expected it to keep a running total over all my career but that gets reset every season like it was just my season stats. Those are just some things that could use a fixing but other than that I'm happy with the game.
Mlb franchise
by Soonerniner on 2017/04/27 14:47
Just started playing but it's seems like a really fun game. But it would be better if you pitched every batter up but all in all its a good game
Great sim baseball game

If you like Road to the Show mode in MLB The Show on consoles, this is a must have.
Not For Baseball Players
by Ballplayer1712 on 2016/12/25 20:07
I've played baseball on a field from little league through college and I've played baseball video, computer, and phone games for 25 years. This is the WORST I've played. The hitting especially is just ridiculous. No logic or consistency to it at all. I can see how people would get frustrated and throw their hard earned money into a game like this. PLEASE DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS!!!
Way too difficult to gain xp.
by Gsi u bdks on 2016/11/22 10:34
Way too hard level up. Needs a few tweaks and updates but overall great game
Horrible Game
by odierides on 2016/10/20 01:00

Hitting too hard
by Jsnjxixmdndikdndndn on 2016/10/09 01:49
Hitting is way too hard. I adjusted my swipe like the game suggested, but it didn't work. I went 9 for 104 in my first 25 games.

Frustrating
by Nadia Noodles on 2016/08/19 15:43
Good concept, but I'll hit line drives into the outfield, and it'll say I grounded out, or a little dribbler is a double. Also it crashes a lot, and doesn't save. I hit a walk-off HR in the bottom of the 17th, the game crashed, and it didn't save. Overall, glitchy but nice idea.
Awful
by #1 katy perry fan on 2016/08/10 18:27
Just terrible
Good but😐
by Iceaddwhelll on 2016/07/21 17:25
It is addictive but every time your team is in 4th place even if you start off with them in first they go all the way down to 4th place next season that happens with every team your with it is very annoying and your team would never make the playoffs or championship
Fun but hard.

Waste of Time
by ZSC1323 on 2016/07/07 00:36
I downloaded this app, hoping for an actual adventure. Although I was hoping it would actually start you from the rookie class, it jumps you up to A Class right away. It is impossible to hit the ball for the first few days. Then the graphics are horrible. But then again, what did you expect? It crashes every 3 games as well, along with money eating scams for MLB Bucks, the currency you waste on upgrading your very badly detailed character. I deleted this game, and I advise you to noy buy this awful game.
Meh
by Unitedmine on 2016/07/01 13:53
The game wouldn't let me do most of the batting or fielding situations. Fix this or I'm done with the game.

Fun addicting. Some issues
by shadraq.theedge on 2016/06/07 19:49
So I bought he doublers and have spent $6 on the game. I like it but there are some games when I go 0-4 without evening being allowed to try to bat. It's almost as if the software glosses over my turn and I'm simply watching a sim. Sort of frustrating. Please fix. Great game. I paid for it and don't feel totally ripped off but for the money it should be fixed and better in this regard. When I can't seem to get a turn and my averages suffer it's wildly frustrating. I played a 20 inning game and had only 2 ABs and 4 fielding opportunities. Crazy frustrating.
Pretty fun game
by bronco208 on 2016/05/23 23:39
Just started,pretty fun ,will see how far I get before having to pay
Non-user friendly, money pit.
by There all tokin on 2016/05/17 12:04
This game is just to horrible in too many ways. The biggest thing I hate is I have all the things to bat BUT IT WONT LET ME BAT. All the simulators are just plain bad and pitching doesn't make any sense to me. Also a major glitch in the game is that I will do absolutely perfect in a game and I'm really excited to see my awesome rating and I'm just stunned to watch my rating say "bench warmer" and I'm just like c'mon game. I'm pretty sure that is because it is simulating my performances and is making me play horribly. I used to play a flash game with the same playing concept(the exact same game but soccer) but when ever you were doing something you would do it. This game is a decent game only if they fix some of there terrible non-user friendly mistakes.
Addicting and fun, minor glitches
by Skamaster77 on 2016/05/15 07:02
First off, this is a fantastic game overall. No ads bothering you during gameplay, and it doesn't require data to play. Starting from A ball and working your way to MLB is so much fun. I only have two complaints with it. First, when you take a swing, it's almost like it's pre-determined whether it's an out or not. You can blast it and it says you flied out, or you can roll it to third and it says you doubled. Really kind of odd in my opinion, but it is what it is. Secondly, once you reach the bigs, it fails to remember your career stats. It'll reset after you play a season or two, which is annoying, and the game loses its appeal at that point, for me. One area for improvement or update would be to remember your career stats and have a leaderboard of some sort to compare your stats with others. Other than that stuff, this is a really great game you can play anytime, data connection or not. Highly recommended for baseball fans. A couple tips: if you're only getting a couple at-bats per game, turn up the effort. It uses more of your energy throughout the game, but if you manage your resources properly and can refill your energy as needed, it'll help you progress quicker through the game. Also, if you want to be a great hitter, focus on items that boost your hitting, instead of speed or fielding. You'll figure out what's what by looking at the icons.
Love it
by Piggy1226 on 2016/05/12 11:51
I all ways want a game like this case I like to watch the show 16 a lot with toth and this is what he dose I love it

Annoying
by Amazing it's game I the world on 2016/04/10 01:55
It's very annoying to play when your fielding shortstop it's like it's always a wild throw!!
It's so hard!!
by Jered225 on 2016/04/05 13:39
I really really love the idea of this game and I know you made it easier to hit in the update and I make contact and put the ball in play but I can not get a single or a double to save my life and it gets very frustrating!!
Worst game ever
by clow242 on 2016/04/02 15:02
This game needs a lot of work. Trying to hit in this game is horrible. You have to spend money to get better.
So far ... So good

by Disch on 2016/03/25 10:48
Fun game and really gets the daily grind of a baseball season. The batting isn't natural for me, but I like the simulation.
A lot of fun
by Dylan Bode on 2016/03/06 10:01
The bad reviews are overly critical. It sure has been addicting and fun. This is a great app for baseball fans who want to play a fun game. Just be patient with your player.
Nice concept
by Salmon slap on 2016/03/06 01:19
I love games that let you play career mode and franchise mode. This game has a great start to that concept, the problem is that half the time you don't get to be your own player. How are you supposed to get better if you only get to actually bat once a game? And a practice mode would be nice. Apparently your swing is different based on how fast, long and direction of your swipe. Hard to figure out what works when you only play live games and only get one or two at bats per game... Also, not enough time to check the situation before the pitcher starts chucking it.
Useless
by PM one on 2016/02/19 12:22
This has to be the most useless game ever created. It's garbage- don't waste your time.
Poor game
by Ninersfan123453 on 2016/02/18 05:53
Not fun game at all. Too hard to hit, not realistic hitting. Many time would hit a fly ball and say ground out. Couldn't hit at all put lots of training in on hitting and my guy was 6-102 in single A. How fun is that? It isn't. Also energy and equipment drain so fast that you can't replace it without spending money, very disappointed.
Legitness
by Butt Sniffs on 2016/02/16 17:43
The definition of this game is- MLB Franchise- a. The best game ever created by man kind b. Savage c. A true cure to any disease
1st Time To Write A Review
by ShergTheBeast on 2016/02/06 14:54
I have never written a review but I had to with this game. This is the worst travesty I have ever seen. Want to be a switch hitter? Too bad. Heck want to bat left-handed? Too bad you're right-handed hitter with no jersey number. After every game you have to spend money to repair your glove, cleats, and bat. Yup it's that bad. If your player is getting tired you could purchase a bottle of water for $100 that'll give him half of his energy. For $100 bottle of water I expect to urinate gold streams and my sweat to turn into delicious Gatorade. The way you hit/swing the stick is some stupid swipe up mechanic that rarely works. I hit balls clearly over the third baseman's head but it cuts the way and tells me I have been thrown out at first. Maybe since I hadn't repaired my cleats my guy tripped and fell coming out of the batters box. Silly me what was i thinking playing with One day old cleats without repairing them for $49 first. By the time you figure out how to throw the ball to first base it will probably be like the fourth or fifth game of the season (cuz of a horrible awkward reverse swipe that I can't explain the logic) and you will have committed about 19 errors already. The first three games I played all went 18 innings and finished 1-0 game. Anyone who gave above a one star rating is either lying or they still play Atari baseball when they get home or theyve never actually seen or played a baseball game. I cannot believe MLB would put their name on this apptrocity. If even one person made even one in app purchase, someone should slap you silly and I would bet the developers of this appbomination are laughing at you hysterically. Like real life laughing out loud where they probably spit fluids out of their mouth if they happen to be drinking something at the time. Yes this game was so bad I spent this much time writing a review
Hitting is too difficult
by Blow u on 2016/02/03 14:43
Shouldn't use the swipe method. Try a button. The timing will direct the ball where to go. Just like all other baseball games. Fix it!

Fun and addicting
by Gjkiccvivbofifi on 2015/12/23 13:29
This is a very fun game. After you kind of master it, it's boring until you get to playoffs. After winning something like 10 straight World Series over the course of a year I just had my streak end because of a fluky bug. As the top team in the playoffs (with 40 more wins than any other team) I was in a 1 game wild card series and lost. If I'm not mistaken the 2 wildcard teams play a 1 game playoff series, not the top team.

by Ngndjchxbdh on 2015/12/04 13:10

Way to hard to hit
by Jarrett Farrar on 2015/12/04 00:28
This game is way to hard to be fun. If you're looking for a challenge,this is the game. You should be able to hit easier. Steadily keeping a horrible average.
A ok

Three words awesome cool and fun
Impossible to get a hit
by BonezFAM on 2015/10/24 19:46
Good idea, but you literally CANNOT even hit. Absolutely no fun because you cannot hit at all. You make contact but it's always a ground out with weak contact. Zero chance of getting a hit.
Absolutely horrible
by Kingfade88 on 2015/10/22 21:00
The game is horrible to me. The game makes it so hard to hit that it'll make you delete the game 10 minutes after you download it. The progression stuff is stupid and the gear and energy makes absolutely no sense at all. Can you guys please make some major improvements to this game? Because it would really help the people who actually have the time to play this game so please make it worth it.
Do bug fixes and updates
by Benjccjgfv on 2015/10/02 14:29
It is a good game but it lags and cuts off update this game it has potential
Needs help
by DodgerzFan on 2015/09/26 16:34
Not realistic. The whole inconsistency is frustrating.The reason why is because when I get a gap hit, it says "Flied Out". Also when I get benched, I lose ALL my progress to AA
Ok game

this has the same idea but the graphics are not great, i played a mlb 12 on my ds and it has better graphics than this. I dont have ps4 so no mlb 15 the show , i have to play mlb 12 on xbox, cause it is realistic than playing rbi baseball we need better baseball games!
Alright.…
by Sportsman1024 on 2015/08/16 02:14
I love baseball so when I saw this game I thought it would be awesome. Well it's actually alright. The game concept of starting in A and progressing to the majors is cool. Playing as a made up character in a farm system is awesome. Being able to field and bat is also cool. The parts I don't like is that 1. You have to wait a whole day to play after you play one game. Unless you use coins which is very easy to run out of. 2. It takes at-bats away from you. You can't swing every at-bat. It mostly just strikes you out when this occurs. So overall, this game is alright. So would I recommend it probably not.
Ok but.....
by MarlinsFan22 on 2015/08/04 20:56
The concept of the game is great. Trying to be the best in your organization is awesome. The controls are easy and quick. The bad parts of this game is the simulation. You don't get to play all your fielding chances or at bats. Whenever the at bat simulates, you always strike out. Some games you don't even get to do anything so then you go 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts and a pop fly out. And then your performance rating is overmatch or bench warmer which makes your meter go way down so you can't move from AA to AAA. And when you play the whole game it freezes so you lose your progress. If you are ok with not playing and your player doing bad, then this is for you.
Good game
by Wbid is ok on 2015/08/01 01:41
Good game but it is almost nearly impossible to get anything other than a weak hit
Great game, Just a few errors
by Crystalle98 on 2015/07/29 18:47
This is not a perfect game Whenever I am playing a game there would be times when the at bat would go up by one or two but I didn't even swing for that time Also how do you even get home runs Every time my swing goes deep it would end in a double or triple or even a single You play both offense and defense which is a plus Your chances for success is great Great game You play both offense and defense which is a plus
fun game

Great game I really enjoy it
Reverse controls
by A very mad man on 2015/07/25 02:46
The controls are reversed and you only control some of your players plays. It's not a good game
Horrible

I can't even log on to the game it just has the mlb logo at the begging so useless
Another money hunting game
by Smain87 on 2015/07/15 01:16
I only give it one star because 0 is not an option. Just another money hunting game where the only way to progress or get any better is by paying. As a fielder you constantly go up little by little with 4-5 hitting games and no fielding errors but then one game will go 1-4 with no errors and drop your progress to the next call up back where it started. As a pitcher it is worse, you can throw a shut out and move up just a little bit but then give up 1 or maybe 2 runs the next game with 10+ strike outs and still win but your progression to the next call up drops. Ridiculous game, only good thing is playing against actual teams from A, AA, and AAA

Teams aren't updated... My player played for all the wrong minor league teams for the pro team he was a prospect for. I suspect the algorithm is poorly written - I assume it places equal emphasis on batting for pitchers (lame) because I stupidly bought power ups (first time I've ever made an in-app purchase) and somehow I'm winning .62% of my games and pitching a league-leading 1.4 era, and batting .308 (as a pitcher) and I somehow keep getting demoted to AAA. I'll pitch a shutout (but not have any offensive hits), and the status would be downgraded to "benchwarmer." I use coins to get those +3 team batting power ups, and I'll lose the game 0-3... And this has happened many times. Just totally lame and the cash power ups are a ripoff. Disappointed the MLB would put its name on such a poor product.

I like that this game isn't like most where you succeed right away. You have to work at it before you can get good. However, at some point you'd like to see a rhyme or reason as to why certain things don't work out, why do I hit 5 good balls in a game and fly out every time then get my ABs taken away next game (??). could certainly use a better tutorial and maybe some fixes altogether.

Dumbest game in history
Addicting and fun, minor glitches
by Skamaster77 on 2016/05/15 07:02
First off, this is a fantastic game overall. No ads bothering you during gameplay, and it doesn't require data to play. Starting from A ball and working your way to MLB is so much fun. I only have two complaints with it. First, when you take a swing, it's almost like it's pre-determined whether it's an out or not. You can blast it and it says you flied out, or you can roll it to third and it says you doubled. Really kind of odd in my opinion, but it is what it is. Secondly, once you reach the bigs, it fails to remember your career stats. It'll reset after you play a season or two, which is annoying, and the game loses its appeal at that point, for me. One area for improvement or update would be to remember your career stats and have a leaderboard of some sort to compare your stats with others. Other than that stuff, this is a really great game you can play anytime, data connection or not. Highly recommended for baseball fans. A couple tips: if you're only getting a couple at-bats per game, turn up the effort. It uses more of your energy throughout the game, but if you manage your resources properly and can refill your energy as needed, it'll help you progress quicker through the game. Also, if you want to be a great hitter, focus on items that boost your hitting, instead of speed or fielding. You'll figure out what's what by looking at the icons.
Great game minus the moments where they don't let you play
by K. Polanco on 2014/03/18 18:21
This game is awesome. Going from A to the MLB is great. The game is very addictive and sometimes you find yourself playing a whole season in almost a day. There is just one problem. Sometimes the game takes your at bats away. You may get a chance to swing for one or two at bats and then the game decides to hit for you. You turn into a spectator rather than a player. Seems silly because the player basically gets 4 at bats a game. There have also been moments where the game is on the line and the game instead stakes your at bat and even strikes you out. I'm not a fan of this part of the game. I want to be able to play the game and not miss at bats. Other than that, the game is great.
Fun... to a point
by j h n on 2014/10/31 17:29
I enjoy baseball sims, and Franchise MVP strikes a nice balance between action and strategy. You can create a player from the ground up - starting off in A ball then progressing through to the majors. Throughout the journey to the bigs, you have to make trade offs acquiring the training points and energy levels necessary to have maximum impact (at bats for batters, batters faced for pitchers) in each game. Gameplay on the iPad mini is especially nice. Where the game experience breaks down is once you have progressed to the majors. As a player, you can swat a lot of homers, attain a lot of Player of the Games, and win multiple World Series. Aside from more MLB bucks, there is no reward. One would expect at least to be christened MVP after a dominating season. Sadly this isn't the case, which makes the gameplay after reaching the majors rather pointless.m Add to that the multiple bugs (mentioned in other reviews, but especially irritating when career stats do not accumulate season to season), and this game is only a three stars.
Good but not great
by Austin Strain on 2014/06/22 03:49
Great game but I wish it was more like Road To The Show. I like how you can use different items and train your own player. The batting is really questionable I'm sure. I don't like how the pitcher will always pitch strikes and no balls. It would be better if they made it more realistic and gave me base hits that clearly shows it should be but it's not(I would fix that on the next update). Otherwise this game is very fun and it gets a lot better when your player gets better!
Non-user friendly, money pit.
by There all tokin on 2016/05/17 12:04
This game is just to horrible in too many ways. The biggest thing I hate is I have all the things to bat BUT IT WONT LET ME BAT. All the simulators are just plain bad and pitching doesn't make any sense to me. Also a major glitch in the game is that I will do absolutely perfect in a game and I'm really excited to see my awesome rating and I'm just stunned to watch my rating say "bench warmer" and I'm just like c'mon game. I'm pretty sure that is because it is simulating my performances and is making me play horribly. I used to play a flash game with the same playing concept(the exact same game but soccer) but when ever you were doing something you would do it. This game is a decent game only if they fix some of there terrible non-user friendly mistakes.
Not bad
by HankArmstrong on 2014/04/29 15:52
There's one major problem with this game: it inexplicably lowers your rating! A couple if days ago I was maxed out in all categories. This took a lot of coins and time. Today I open the game and my ratings have dropped to 76! That will be it playing this game for me. It also doesn't seem to matter what your rating is as I didn't play better or win more games with my team at 130 than I did with it at 70. The game should also have a quantity discount on items like water bottles and sports drinks. The gameplay is okay. I find hitting difficult but pitching is relatively easy until you get to MLB level. I haven't been able to get consistent results there and keep getting sent down to AAA.
Decent game, but still needs a lot of tweaks.
by Noiseradiostar on 2014/04/23 16:07
I downloaded the game before the easier hitting update and with the update i can finally hit pretty well. However, i would echo all the other problems people have mentioned: Still stuck in Single A after 2 seasons, only 1-2 ab's per game, computer sim rarely gives me hits, every other game goes 16 innings & drains my energy (plus the sim hates me so i usually go 0 for 8), almost never get rbi's or hr 's (seriously...what does it take to hit a hr?). Despite all this i still find myself playing it. The game has a lot of potential. I really hope the developers read the reviews and fix the flaws.

Reptitive and limiting
by ledhotzepper on 2014/04/08 14:30
Once I had reached the MLB with my 2B and filled up that progress bar, there wasn't anything left to do. I could still play in the World Series but the game doesn't really get more interesting. Just swipe really fast from the bottom right to top left and you should do well. I hit more doubles than singles, oddly enough. It's a time wasting game really. I don't want to lose my progress on my batter if I choose to play as a pitcher though. That's pretty silly that you can't have two players in the game. I just wanted to try out the pitching but I can't without losing my save game on my hitter. This needs to be changed.
Ok but.....
by MarlinsFan22 on 2015/08/04 20:56
The concept of the game is great. Trying to be the best in your organization is awesome. The controls are easy and quick. The bad parts of this game is the simulation. You don't get to play all your fielding chances or at bats. Whenever the at bat simulates, you always strike out. Some games you don't even get to do anything so then you go 0 for 4 with 3 strikeouts and a pop fly out. And then your performance rating is overmatch or bench warmer which makes your meter go way down so you can't move from AA to AAA. And when you play the whole game it freezes so you lose your progress. If you are ok with not playing and your player doing bad, then this is for you.
Nice concept
by Salmon slap on 2016/03/06 01:19
I love games that let you play career mode and franchise mode. This game has a great start to that concept, the problem is that half the time you don't get to be your own player. How are you supposed to get better if you only get to actually bat once a game? And a practice mode would be nice. Apparently your swing is different based on how fast, long and direction of your swipe. Hard to figure out what works when you only play live games and only get one or two at bats per game... Also, not enough time to check the situation before the pitcher starts chucking it.
Another money hunting game
by Smain87 on 2015/07/15 01:16
I only give it one star because 0 is not an option. Just another money hunting game where the only way to progress or get any better is by paying.

A lot of fixes needed
by Action FlaxonJackson on 2014/05/23 01:30
Game is fun but has a lot of errors. If you leave the game while it's simulating you can lose your experience points even though the game says you can't. So people can pay real money for game dollars to increase their player attributes and have the real money literally wasted. In MLB you can get player of the game or impact player and have your meter for that level go down. Terrible glitch. Game has too many flaws in what is considered a "bad" game. Needs a lot of improvements. Could be better but is extremely mediocre with these horrific issues.
Game issues.
by SW411 on 2014/06/17 18:16
I Would like to see a batting cage, to practice hitting. Also never seen so many triple plays made during games played. Would like to see money earning just a bit more easily accomplished. I have two issues, I would like to see a pause our timeout added and the other issue is the player seems to strikeout a lot, when controlled by the game when simulated batting by the game. I also think that energy should remain strong while scoring during the game and weaken while being out scored or losing. Game tends to freeze and lock up at times.
Overall good
by dillonbremer on 2017/05/10 14:31
Overall I love the game but my biggest complaint is that half of the time most of my at-bats in a game are just simulated through and my rating at the end of the game is "overmatched" or "benchwarmer" even though the one at-bat I got to play might have been a double. On other thing is the "Statistics" where it says career I expected it to keep a running total over all my career but that gets reset every season like it was just my season stats. Those are just some things that could use a fixing but other than that I'm happy with the game.
Fun and addicting
by Gjkiccvivbofifi on 2015/12/23 13:29
This is a very fun game. After you kind of master it, it's boring until you get to playoffs. After winning something like 10 straight World Series over the course of a year I just had my streak end because of a fluky bug. As the top team in the playoffs (with 40 more wins than any other team) I was in a 1 game wild card series and lost. If I'm not mistaken the 2 wildcard teams play a 1 game playoff series, not the top team.
Its a good idea but............
by Dhjvdfhhfyiuiddv on 2014/06/06 12:23
This game is pretty fun but i have 2 suggestions. 1. How come you can only bat like 1 time in a game but then the next game you can bat 4 times? Why does its simulate your at bat. If he is your player you should be able to do everything with him. When ever he has a play on the field you should be making it. 2. The energy bar... Ok the energy bar should regenerate over time. So of i leave the game and its almost empty i come back 3 hours later it should be at least half way full. I mean common.
Fun addicting. Some issues
by shadraq.theedge on 2016/06/07 19:49
So I bought he doublers and have spent $6 on the game. I like it but there are some games when I go 0-4 without evening being allowed to try to bat. It's almost as if the software glosses over my turn and I'm simply watching a sim. Sort of frustrating. Please fix. Great game. I paid for it and don't feel totally ripped off but for the money it should be fixed and better in this regard. When I can't seem to get a turn and my averages suffer it's wildly frustrating. I played a 20 inning game and had only 2 ABs and 4 fielding opportunities. Crazy frustrating.
Horrible game, not realistic at all.
by Kobe80Moss on 2014/04/14 05:24
Played five seasons, still in single A, skill set went from 20's to 50's performance got worse not better. Batting is really out dated and impossible to perfect. I have been called out on a fielders choice when no one was on base. You can hit a double with a man on first and the never score; or hit a single with a man second and they never score. The game is programmed to have a lot of extra inning games many games going over 20 innings, the reason for this is so your equipment gets wore out faster so you eventually have to spend real money to get anywhere. Horrible product!!
Needs some improvements
by Kool man 69 on 2014/10/22 19:48
It would be better if the energy would recharge faster you almost have to pay Everytime just to pay which is hard to do when you first start off. Also you don't get very much money and everything is over priced. You would think since mlb is so big it would try to take so much real money. Lastly it's extremely hard just to get a hit. If they could fix this I would almost pay for the game
Fun sim
by M Jarrells on 2014/05/12 14:51
Fun sim that's still a little buggy. Base running logic still needs work, since on-base teammates never score unless you happen to get a triple or better. Also, they almost never knock you in. It's especially annoying to have all progress lost every time you do an update. I've come back to play more after two update shutdowns but it remains to be seen if I will if it happens again.
Wonderful, but...
by ilikethekitty on 2014/03/21 15:54
For someone who didn't used to be into fantasy sports games before playing 'MLB Ballpark Empire,' I found this game to be quite appealing and addictive. My only gripe is that the functionality of each position can be confusing to some at first, but after a while it becomes easier to manage the task of helping the player reach the bigs. Also recommended: MLB Ballpark Empire, Big Win MLB/NHL, etc.
Very Frustrating
by 28Posey on 2014/04/26 16:27
Whenever you're the hitter 99% of the time you get out and your team will lose. Whenever you're the pitcher you're team can never score any runs so you always lose or when you do score, the game will sim when you are pitching and will let the other team score like 4 in an inning to take the lead and won't let your team score anymore. Fix this. It has good potential to be a good game but right now it is god awful
Needs a lot of work
by bk786 on 2014/05/07 20:05
The game is actually somewhat addicting at first. Unfortunately, it falls short in several departments: 1) The game has a lot of in-app purchases, and most of the items are extremely overpriced 2) Graphics are not great, and all the pitchers look exactly the same 3) Hitting is very difficult beyond Double A. Im guessing that the reason is because the makers want you to spend money to upgrade your hitting, fielding, or pitching skills. If you're smart and don't spend ridiculous amounts of money, your hitters will have a very hard time against AAA or MLB pitchers. 4) swiping controls are also ridiculous. You have to drag your finger across your entire screen to get a hit, and this can be very annoying if you are playing on a tablet. All in all it is okay in some areas, but don't waste your time until they come out with another update.
Really enjoy it but...
by Ashley Evans on 2014/03/28 18:44
I really enjoy playing this game but it gets very frustrating when after a game it tells you that you were a backup or benchwarmer because your batting average was .000 for the game when it just simulated all of your at bats for you. Also, it's not very realistic cause just about every game goes into extra innings.
It's great, but...
by MissMindy1989 on 2014/07/16 22:13
While this game is very fun and addictive there is one issue in particular that really make me want to stop playing: 1) When pitching, it only allows me to pitch 3-4 times per game. Even when my pitches and fielding are perfect, the computer does a terrible job and let's the batters score an outrageous number of runs. I then get rated as "overmatched" even though the pitches I threw myself were perfect strikeouts. It then takes away points.
It's fun but..
by Thomas G Wilcox on 2015/03/28 03:54
This game is really fun. I like it. A lot. Biggest thing I don't like is it doesn't let you bat every time. It'll screw up my rating and stats. There's times it'll go an entire game and I won't get to bat once and my player doesn't get a single hit and I get an "overmatched" rating. I'm sure it's just a glitch, but it's unfair. If I'm going to get 0 hits I'd rather it be on my own accord, not let the computer decide for me. Otherwise it's a pretty cool game.
Please update
by BibleStudent3300 on 2015/03/05 18:05
This is my favorite app. It's provided many hours of enjoyment, but it has stopped loading again. I've accumulated many MLB bucks and coins, and I don't want to lose them by deleting the app and downloading it again. I also don't want to start over again in the minor leagues. I've already won the World Series so my progress is very important to me. This is the second time it's happened.
I Love All Things Baseball..
by ZMo6 on 2014/06/21 20:50
..Except this app. Sounds like a great idea. Create a player, train the player and try to make it to the big leagues! So why does the app control more than half the at-bats my player gets? If I want to watch a simulated game, I'd turn on the NY Mets. Also, there is no rhyme or reason to controlling the swing for the at-bats you do get to take. How long am I supposed to stay interested if every at bat is a "weak" hit to somewhere. It doesn't help that the only bat they offer when starting out is balsa. BALSA! It floats in the darn bathtub! This app is not well executed.
Horrible
by Gideyon on 2014/06/23 15:08
This game seemed promising but really suffered from bad controls. The camera angle while batting makes it hard to see on phones, which is a bad thing for a mobile game. The game takes away bats and fielding opportunities and puts them to random chance which defeats the purpose of the game because you become a spectator rather than a player in the game. The energy system needs to be overhauled completely as well. Lumping training into game energy is stupid because it makes it difficult to improve within the game.
Great game
by Math31392 on 2014/05/06 16:35
I've made it to the MLB club twice with in 4 season before and then quit playing for a bit b/c of draining my phone battery.. Tried to get back in to it keeps freezing after i make my player again usually a shortstop would still like to see a switch hitting additive to the game
Waste of Time
by ZSC1323 on 2016/07/07 00:36
I downloaded this app, hoping for an actual adventure. Although I was hoping it would actually start you from the rookie class, it jumps you up to A Class right away. It is impossible to hit the ball for the first few days. Then the graphics are horrible. But then again, what did you expect? It crashes every 3 games as well, along with money eating scams for MLB Bucks, the currency you waste on upgrading your very badly detailed character. I deleted this game, and I advise you to noy buy this awful game.

Good game when no glitches
by Kyle62245454 on 2014/03/30 11:19
I really enjoy this game. I'm on the verge of AAA. However the game won't let me load currently. I have tried everything I can think of. Hitting gets easier the more you practice. Raise your energy to. 2 lighting bolts, use the lowest equipment, and buy water. It's working out for me in my game. When I don't freeze while loading.
Very fun, but can use some tweaks
by TOX1Cbuilds on 2014/07/06 21:41
I find this game to be really fun to play. It's very addicting, but there are some things that could use some tweaking. Either the amount of money you get after each game is greater or the price of the water bottle needs to go down. Plus there needs to be a practice mode in the game!!
Excellent game with two exceptions
by Yodaman70 on 2014/06/16 00:20
Great game play however I agree that too often they play for your character. Also game like many others out there where you have pay to play or just not worth playing at all. For me, if I can play great. If not, I have plenty of other games.
Could you update the game plz?
by RJRonan on 2018/08/02 01:33
I remember having this app before and it was the GOAT! I really enjoyed it and I really miss playing it because of the new update on my phone. Could you maybe update the game so I can play again? I would really appreciate it.
Love The Game but Freezes
by *scubaguy* on 2014/03/29 15:33
The game is great and highly addictive but twice now I have gotten to the AAA level and the game stops loading up and I have to start the app all over again and lose all my progress. Very frustrating. Needs to be fixed.
I want this game back
by Bereghostgames1 on 2019/05/21 02:59
I loved playing this game a lot and hoping the developers brings it back with updating it to IOS11 and up. It was a game that was somewhat realistic and fun to play. I would play this everyday again if they update it.
GREAT Idea, BAD Gameplay
by Curtis R. Shideler on 2014/03/19 04:12
This is a great idea for an MLB game. It's like New Star Soccer but for baseball. BUT, it falls way short of what it could be. The batting mechanic is the WORST I've ever used in a game! I fly it over the first baseman's head but consistently get "thrown out at first." Rarely can you get on base. And can't tell whether I'm swinging at a ball or strike. ALSO, I finally scored my first 2 RBIs and guess what?!? The game froze. It really wants you to fail. And you will. Because it does.
Good but😐
by Iceaddwhelll on 2016/07/21 17:25
It is addictive but every time your team is in 4th place even if you start off with them in first they go all the way down to 4th place next season that happens with every team your with it is very annoying and your team would never make the playoffs or championship
Alright.…
by Sportsman1024 on 2015/08/16 02:14
I love baseball so when I saw this game I thought it would be awesome. Well it's actually alright. The game concept of starting in A and progressing to the majors is cool. Playing as a made up character in a farm system is awesome. Being able to field and bat is also cool. The parts I don't like is that 1. You have to wait a whole day to play after you play one game. Unless you use coins which is very easy to run out of. 2. It takes at-bats away from you. You can't swing every at-bat. It mostly just strikes you out when this occurs. So overall, this game is alright. So would I recommend it probably not.
Great
by bcl4164 on 2014/05/11 21:11
Great baseball simulator. Although you never play the entire game because it's mostly simulated the action parts are really fun. Okay part 2 of my review. Just changed my 4 star into a 5 star. I love how it individually focuses on you. This game is just outright amazing!!!
Great game, just needs some polishing.
by FireWarrior71 on 2014/08/31 12:51
I enjoyed playing this game. The only problems I have are that mini games are somewhat repetitive. And it crashes a lot. I can be in the middle of a game, it never fails, it crashes in the 7th or 8th. Just needs a little polishing.
Absolutely horrible
by Kingfade88 on 2015/10/22 21:00
The game is horrible to me. The game makes it so hard to hit that it'll make you delete the game 10 minutes after you download it. The progression stuff is stupid and the gear and energy makes absolutely no sense at all. Can you guys please make some major improvements to this game? Because it would really help the people who actually have the time to play this game so please make it worth it.
Game will not load
by Kman3636 on 2014/12/13 17:20
This is a fun game. But twice I have built my player up only to have the game no longer load on my iPad. It gets to the "Loading" screen, the gear icon in the lower right corner spins, and nothing happens. I definitely will never purchase anything in the in-app purchase option because you can easily lose it. Support at MLB could not help me.
Good game, could be better
by Raphy235 on 2014/03/31 22:41
Love the pitching.. Hard to get to the MLB however seems like you're actually in the minors. Also hard to get your overall up I'm in year 4 and I'm only a 30. The batting is impossible to me so I simply just don't play it.
Crashing
by jude ahmad on 2014/07/19 05:05
Right before every other game, the app crashes and takes me to my home screen. It will be 5 stars once they fix the bug and there should be more ways to earn mlbucks

This game has potential, but the hitting mechanics are really difficult to pick up. It's also annoying that the game crashes frequently when trying to play consecutive games. Fix those issues and my rating will go up.
