  1. Even with some signs of the major league’s style of repetitiveness, MLB Stickball is still one for those that have been waiting for mindless baseball fun in convenient, XBLA packaging.
  2. Traditional baseball-sim junkies will recoil at the ease and simplicity, but kids and casual fans might enjoy stepping up to this plate.

    MLB Stickball is a cute and simple game but its a weak groundout, not the home run it aspires to be.
  4. Proof that simplicity isn't always a good thing, this cutesy baseball download is so vapid you’ll lose interest well before the 7th-inning stretch.
  5. 30
    MLB Stickball is bad to the core. It has few redeeming qualities. It's overly simplistic, it's poorly thought out, it looks bad and it's boring.
  6. Rather than simulate a playground game we never played in the UK anyway, pay the extra and import the brilliant "MLB 2K8." [Jan 2009, p.104]
