Zzap! (Jun, 1985)
I'm not exactly well clued up in the field of baseball and have never thrilled to the delights experienced by your average American. But a couple of plays of this soon changed my whole outlook. Love it! The excellent attention to detail is really good and adds immensely to the game (Not that a lot needs adding).

While Hardball offers a more realistic game, WSB remains as much fun now as when it was first released. Highly recommended, and good preparation for seeing all the new baseball movies coming out now.
Zzap! (Aug, 1992)
Imagine's early attempt isn't the most accurate of baseball sims, but makes up for this with good playability. There's no detailed player stats (not even names), and the general lack of realism is typified by a strange pitching system. The ball is seen zooming along a horizontally scrolling window and its movements can be dramatically affected at any time by the pitcher! Despite this, games tend to be free-scoring with lots of hectic base running and fielding. There's plenty of good ol' razzmatazz too with colourful graphics and jolly tunes.
64'er (Jun, 1985)
Wie schon erwähnt, ist der Computer recht spielstark, eher schon zu stark. Aber am meisten Spaß machen solche Spiele ja sowieso zu zweit. Für Anfänger kommt die komplizierte Bedienung erschwerend hinzu. Wer sich aber trotzdem nicht abschrecken läßt, der erhält eine der besten Mannschafts-Simulationen, die es derzeit gibt.
Tilt (Jul, 1985)
Peut-être moins attrayant qu'un tennis ou un football, World Series Baseball est néanmoins séduisant.
