If you simply want to play a fun baseball game with some nice features, however, you won't find a better one for the Nintendo Game Boy Color.
I'm extremely disappointed in Ken Griffey's Slugfest. I was a big fan of the original Super NES version of the game, despite the arcade feel and offensive gameplay. The design was quick, fun, and smooth. This Game Boy Color version is none of that -- it could have been designed so much better, but it looks as if they wanted to show off their color techniques rather than to give a great playing game of baseball. So far, as of this writing, the best handheld baseball game goes to SNK and its Baseball Stars Color. It's a damn shame what happened to pocket Griffey.

Nope, don’t buy it. This little baseball game suffers from a fatal flaw. It is impossible to play defense. Offense is easy enough, just swing at the pitch and deal with the results. Pitching is equally smooth and easy. The game includes all of the major league teams and a full roster for each team. You can mess with your lineups and bullpen. You can pull off trades and simulate seasons. It all sounds groovy until you get to playing defense, where the game becomes so frustrating that you want to take your Louisville Slugger to it.
