  1. One of the most enjoyable baseball games on any platform.
  2. Though modes are limited and there's no two-player connectivity, the one player season experience defeats any console game to date.
  3. 88
    One of, if not the best handheld baseball games yet developed.
  4. The piece de resistance is undeniably the batting and pitching. The other parts of the game merely dress it up to become a full baseball title.
  5. 81
    Fun right out of the tiny box, Baseball Advance is more enjoyable than most offerings on actual consoles.
  6. There's only four stadiums and there's no multiplayer, but it's still a great game of baeball. [Feb 2003, p.97]
  7. Although it has fewer features than other baseball video games, Baseball Advance is both fun and impressive.
  8. BA's batter/pitcher duel is one of the best on any system, making the game a blast to play.[May 2002, p.115]
  9. One of the best looking mini-baseball games ever.
  10. 80
    Two-player affairs expose weaknesses in the pitching portion of the matchup, but it’s forgivable since the majority of GBA owners will likely go at it alone.
  11. 80
    Very enjoyable but short on depth.
  12. The play is solid, the graphics are good to excellent and program is delivered with an obvious appreciation for the sport.
  13. While it's not as glitzy and gadgety as the titles on the consoles, it's one hell of a portable title that will bring back fond memories for anyone who grew up with the 8 and 16-bit era baseball titles.
  14. Stat hounds beware... the lack of depth, all the MLB ballparks, current rosters and trading will really turn you off... [but] easily the best GBA baseball title on the market for the time being.
  15. Baseball Advance may not be a home run, but it makes solid contact in the areas of playability and fun despite the rough edges.
  16. Sharp graphics and an accurate pitching system help drive home the big-league fun.[Aug 2002, p.147]
