Summary

Good game of baseball with one notable glitch

The Good

Solid graphics, sound and playability. It's an interesting British take on a very American past-time, though they confused our fondness for cheerleaders in American football with baseball.

The Bad

There is one notable and inexcusable flaw in the game, likely due to its non-American heritage. Even when the visiting team is losing, all 18 half innings (that make up nine innings) must be played.

The Bottom Line

A somewhat quirky and unusual baseball game that's fun to play if you can get around both its quirks and the one major flaw.
