If you don’t own Baseball Stars you owe it to yourself and your family to run out and buy this game now. Okay, actually driving would probably be faster, but regardless this one needs to be in your collection. I give this game my rally cap guarantee, this one’s a winner.

With all the options that are included , we can easily say that this is the best baseball game for the NES . Even if there is some little disapointing elements , the rest of the game is perfect . Baseball Star is a must have for the NES fan and for people who have never play this game before and like baseball.

NESAll Game Guide
When the Major League Baseball Players Association began licensing the names and likenesses of its players in the early 1990s, the idea of including women in baseball games fell by the wayside. After Baseball Stars, game publishers had a difficult time selling baseball games if they didn't have real players and real times. Baseball Stars was the last of the great independents.

It has statistical consistency reminiscent of Bases Loaded and offers great play control and playing speed, smooth scrolling action and graphics that really cook. Pass the hot dog...say what?...sushi?!

Baseball Stars is a popular, high-quality baseball game for the NES. There are no actual major league teams or players, and a few of the players are actually girls (in shorts no less). The uniforms are ugly (one team is all purple), but the players are well animated. I love how the ball bounces so smoothly and realistically. Baseball Stars' gameplay reminds me of Ken Griffey games for the SNES - very fun and arcade-like. There are a few flaws however. Annoying background music blares nonstop throughout the game. Fly balls can be difficult to track down because they have no shadow (sound effects indicate the ball's height). In spite of these deficiencies, Baseball Stars provides a good time for the casual baseball fan.
