  • Summary: Hone your pitching, fielding, and hitting skills in Wiffle Ball Advance. All in the privacy of your own DS. No need to go outside ever.

  1. The potential and real world model was there for the emulation, but something along the transition didn't make it out of the batter's box. The complexity of having that annoyance stylus maneuvering just added frustration to a game that was already missing "pep."
  2. DSI has published yet another stinker. Leave this one on the shelf and go play some real Wiffle ball, if you absolutely must.
  3. It's unfinished, lacks any depth and is as forgettable of an experience as any webpage banner ad game.

    Even at a $20 price, it's still not worth it.

    This game is awful. Laughably, inarguably, inexcusably awful and I can’t believe it was let through DSI’s gates, let alone Nintendo’s. Wiffle Ball for the DS is an abomination of gaming that should have never seen store shelves. Every step of its execution is a failure.
  6. It's astonishing that anyone would try and sell this as a complete game. Piffle ball more like. [Apr 2007, p.71]

    This game really sucks, but not as badly as Deal/No Deal. In this game there is a limited selection of options, characters, and stages. I also dislike the gameplay itself, to bat you have to hold down the button needed, then swing when the pitcher throws it, that I had to look in the instruction manual for. You never know where you're going to hit it to, it is very unpredictable. Positive things I like would be the somewhat higher than average graphics and the pitching. Another thing I hate is outfield in this game, it is way too easy to catch the ball whenever it is hit. Overall, 2.7/10 (I could go on forever on the bad aspects of the game) Collapse

    Damn, this is the worst DS-game I have ever played. Do yourself a favor; DON'T BUY IT! Sounds are bad, graphics are OK, gameplay sucks, and the levels are bad. Expand
