  1. Misses the mark as a major league player, but works well as an arcade offshoot. Fun, partially innovative, and a good way to kill short waiting periods.
  2. While there’s plenty we’d like to see fleshed out (especially the skimpy single-player modes and badly out-of-date rosters), it’s a more-than-welcome effort that does right by the DS platform.
  3. 67
    While this won't replace MLB 08: The Show -- the best portable hardcore baseball game out there -- it's tailored for tots and casual seamheads on the go.
  4. While there's a lot of good stuff going on inside a game, the modes are skimpy, even for a title aimed at the youngest set. [May 2008, p.90]
  5. 55
    A decent design on paper, but it simply doesn’t translate. Touch control for batting and pitching are annoying, rather than intuitive, the design embraces a style, but lacks polish and refinement on it, and the list of options and modes don’t really push the experience beyond a few hours.
  6. Outside of tournaments and multiplayer, the game doesn't have a mode that you can sink your cleats--or time--into. [June 2008, p.101]
  7. Overall, while it's nice to see someone try to make a baseball game that's a little different from the norm, it still needs to be user friendly and easy to play; instead it's an extremely frustrating game for lefties and a barely passable game for right handed players and is best saved for the younger crowd as a rental.
  8. An absolute sham of a game, full of broken mechanics and proof that when you carry a gimmick too far, you end up with something that no one wants to play.
