Aside from that, this is a solid and more importantly, fun title. As a casual sports fan you'll find this game easy to pick up and play after a quick perusal of the game manual. If you like baseball I think this is the title to have on the GBC.
All-Star Baseball 2001 is just a solid baseball game full of options and gameplay, only with less than spectacular graphics.
If you're a fan of video baseball games, then you're aware of the accolades that Acclaim's All-Star Baseball series has received. Filled with scrumptious visuals, perfect gameplay, and tons of value, the N64 releases have redefined how we think of video game hardball. Though Acclaim's Game Boy efforts haven't lived up to their N64 counterparts, the All-Star Baseball series still epitomizes quality handheld hardball. As sure as baseball season is upon us once again, Acclaim is back with its third All-Star Baseball release, All-Star Baseball 2001.
The game honestly hasn't changed enough to justify a new brand. No link cable support, no changes to the gameplay, no new options. It's still one of the better baseball games on the Game Boy Color, but in all honesty that's not saying much. If you must have All-Star Baseball, look through the bargain bins -- you can probably find All-Star Baseball 2000 for ten bucks cheaper.
Playing baseball on a handheld should improve as technology steps forward (the Game Boy Advance should throw up things significantly, both in terms of visuals and complexity of gameplay), but for the time being baseball is rather unappealing. Pick up All Star Baseball 2001 if you're interested in playing catch on the run, but it is recommended to seek out something on the PlayStation or Nintendo 64 instead.
