Power Play
Soweit so gut, doch hinkt Acclaims Baseballer eindeutig an der hakeligen Steuerung, die weder sehr komplex, noch sonderlich eingängig und über die Tastatur nur sehr schlecht zu kontrollieren ist. Da sollte man sich bei Dynamix eine dicke Scheibe abschneiden. Ebenfalls störend sind in der Pitcher/Batter-Perspektive die großen Sprites der Batter, die selbst in SVGA, trotz groß verkaufter Motion-Capture-Animationen, unmöglich gepixelt aussehen und nicht zum ansonsten feinen Grafik-Ambiente passen. Kein Baseball-Meilenstein also, immerhin aber ein flottes Spiel für die kurze Mittagspause.
Generally, the lack of statistics and managerial options and the lapses in AI (you can bunt the computer to death...) combine with arcade-style gameplay to make Big Hurt Baseball more of a quick-fix, multi-player console game than an immersive PC simulation. For PC gamers who need more from their baseball games, we'll just have to turn to Tony (La Russa, that is).

Enkelt uppbyggt utan att för den skull sakna viktiga funktioner, snygg grafik, lagom bra ljud och godkänd spelkänsla. Tyvärr innehåller FTBHB några tekniska fel som är mycket irriterande.

The bottom line on this game is that it simply can't compete. It does nothing better than today's other baseball games, and lags behind in several key areas. In another time and place, the game might not be considered so bad. But in the Year of the Baseball Sim, BIG HURT strikes out.
