  1. Midway has come out of nowhere to create the most entertaining arcade baseball game in years.
  2. Even though the game has a good mix of real and arcade, it may still not be what the simulation fan is looking for in a baseball title. Newcomers to baseball may get a little frustrated with it as well.
  3. The gameplay is simple but addictive, the graphics and sound will have you cracking up, and there are enough modes to keep you busy (although it lacks a franchise mode).

    Robust with options, intuitive to play, and all around well-packaged.
  5. An incredibly appealing sports game.
  6. A great action-sports title to just sitback and have fun with.
  7. 78
    The best arcade-baseball game on the market, but there's still room for improvement.

    The play-by-play is really funny, and I think the rest of the game is a riot. [Sept 2002, p.162]
  9. This game does a lot of things well, but being a baseball game isn’t one of them.
  10. The dynamics of the game aren't bad, though they are certainly light on the pitching and heavy on the bat.
