    This game is surprisingly great. The actual baseball mechanics in the minigames are some of the best ever and would make for a great full game. If you've played the MLB Power Pros/Jikkyou Powerful Pros series, this has a similar feel: simple but perfect controls, somewhat exaggerated pitch dynamics, and an emphasis on timing.

If you've played the MLB Power Pros/Jikkyou Powerful Pros series, this has a similar feel: simple but perfect controls, somewhat exaggerated pitch dynamics, and an emphasis on timing. This might be the first baseball game where fielding is actually fun. The minigames themselves are very addictive and have about a million levels and high score challenges, so at about $1.50 each (if you haggle down the price), they're a great value. Sometimes, unexpected ones (like umpiring) can be the most fun. The whole haggling concept is so weird and original, as is the storyline, and it's so nice to see Nintendo bother to bring over one of those bizarre Japanese games that's probably destined for a cult audience. If you're a baseball fan, this game is especially for you, but I would recommend it to anyone. Expand

    Proof that Nintendo can handle free-to-play and make it fun, you'll enjoy haggling with Rusty almost as much as you'll enjoy the wealth of mini-games Rusty's has to offer.

    This is the National Pastime deconstructed. This is also Nintendo’s past commingling with its future: A perfect, tiny game, forced into this strange new shape and sold piecemeal.

    A little more than half of the minigames in Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball are fun and arcadey, wrapped up neatly in Rusty’s darkly humorous story, but it’s hard to separate the good from the bad before committing to a purchase.
