I think Street Sports Baseball is brilliant, it is realistic, has all the elements of a real game - the kind ordinary people play - and is just as much fun.
Die Grafik ist wie üblich vom Feinsten. Die nett animierten Spieler, die fast einem Comic entsprungen sein könnten, bewegen sich über einen sehr realistischen Hintergrund, der den Flair des Spiels ausmacht. Allein für die Idee gebührt den Programmierern ein großes Lob. Kleine Glanzstücke, wie das Werfen einer Münze bei Seitenwahl, runden das positive Bild ab. Was mir fehlt, ist die taktische Seite des Baseball-Spiels mit Mannschaftsaufstellung, Spielerwechsel und so weiter. Das paßt leider nicht in das Konzept dieser Spiele-Reihe. Mir hat diese Komponente besonders beim Konkurrenten "Hardball" von Accolade sehr gut gefallen.
Street Sports Baseball has a few strikes against it. The batting and pitching controls are too limited and the computer comes across up aces too many times for natural skill. If you can put up with the machine's team ego, and select a good squad from the rabble you're shown, you might just enjoy this game.
Overall Street Sports Baseball is a great change of pace for sports fans. Drafting, choosing player positions, setting the batting order, and naming your team all add the enjoyment.
Street Sports Baseball is more reminiscent than whimsical, but it is no less fun. Remember the sandlot games where home plate was a garbage can lid and old tree stumps were just part of the hazards of outfield duty? Well, all that and more comes alive in this excellent program.
