  1. If the game only had a little more depth and online play, it would be easy to recommend this without question. As it is, it’s right up there with Power Pros as one of the more enjoyable Wii experiences you can have in a baseball game.
  2. Little League World Series Baseball 2008 achieved something that only a small bunch of Wii games has done: put a smile on my face.
  3. What I love about Little League World Series Baseball 2008 is that the games are short enough (6 innings, true to Little League) and fun enough that you can pick this game up and play it time and time again.
  4. 72
    Little League World Series 2008 is too expensive for what it is -- sitting at the current max price of $50 on Wii -- and offers only Wii-mote solo mode, which means hardcore baseball fans are going to be put off at the lack of fielder control, swing aiming, and the lack of general depth of the game.
  5. It's a fairly simple game in terms of control, but there is some depth to it and plenty of replayability.
  6. Little League World Series Baseball doesn’t offer realistic graphics and it doesn’t want to be completely simulative, but thanks to the user friendly gameplay it becomes fun to play for everyone. Considering the Low-Budget-price, this game could be a good spring purchase.
  7. Sticking way too literally to the idea of the Little League World Series means there's hardly enough "game" here to interest any adult looking for baseball action, while the complexity of the pitching controls might be enough to turn off kids who like the anime looks of the game.
