Polygon, who got an early look at the Xbox 360 version, describes the game as "bare-bones." This shouldn't come as a surprise since the developer has been promising a return to the roots of the franchise. The game offers no online play or team or player rankings, in hope fans will take the time to discover new baseball clubs and players instead of just playing their favorites. Jamie Leece, vice president of games at MLB Advanced Media says that they purposely left out things like player rankings and relief pitchers warm-ups to speed up the pace of the games.
