  1. True to its name, this punishing game takes some of the wussiness out of baseball, and we’re not just talking collisions at the plate.
  2. While probably not being able to match up to "World Series Baseball" in terms of depth and such, the game’s arcade style brings a fresh viewpoint to the genre that some of the sims may take part in later down the line.
  3. The main complaint is that the appeal of the game wears off quickly. [Nov 2002, p.129]

    Brilliantly illustrated and animated, flawlessly announced, and a synch to get into, there is little holding the baseballer back.
  5. While it doesn't possess the sheer addictiveness of, say, "NFL Blitz," it's simultaneously a breath of fresh air and a nostalgic look at the baseball game genre.
  6. Short of a grand slam, but it still makes its presence felt.
  7. Unless your IQ is below 17, there are better ways to waste your day. Like drooling. [Fall 2002, p.119]

    This game was very mediocre. I can't really believe the 79 score from the critics. Partly, it's because I am a fan of the baseball sims where you control everything about a team and can become a manager. It's stupid that you can throw a 120 mph fastball but the defense can't catch up to most fly balls. Expand
