WSB remains the ultimate in cartridge baseball; it's so good, you'll almost forget there ever was a strike!
Many gamers thought the original World Series Baseball was king, but the monstrously cool refinements in WSB '95 send that game and the competition back to the minors. Remarkable graphics, realistic sounds, and smokin' new features earn this cart a trip to the All-Stars.
So what's wrong with WSB '95? Not much, but no game is perfect (at least, not yet). The bunt is still an easy way to get a hit, the pitchers don't perform enough like their real life counterparts, and the highly offensive-styled game is sure to produce some ballooned stats (like Matt Nokes hitting 49 home-runs in half a season). Even with those faults, WSB '95 is a game that baseball fans should have.
WSB '95 is required for baseball fans, and at least worth a look-see for owners of the original WSB. This is just about as good as 16-bit baseball hear the following words on opening day, I have only one thing to say of WSB '95: "PLAY BALL!"
All Game Guide
Despite the quirks, the game is still worth the price of admission if only to experience the incredible pitching system. While the hitting could use some improvement, you can lay off the power swings to reduce the amount of home runs or try your luck at the tricky cursor method. The amount of statistics, gorgeous stadiums and beautiful animation help make up for any imperfections in the batter's interface. Genesis baseball fans have to be pleased with 1995's offerings. World Series Baseball '95 and Triple Play 96 are not only the year's best baseball games on the system, they are arguably the system's best as well!
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
The best baseball game of all time has been made better. The only thing the programmers at Sega Sports couldn't put into this game is the smell of the hotdogs and the natural grass. Who needs the real game when you can play World Series Baseball on your Genesis? The boys of summer can stay on strike forever as long as there aren't any power outages.
I think that the game's graphics are some of the best of any game on the system and its fluid fielding and the feeling you get when you hit a home run are just spectacular, much unlike the ill vibes of my 1995 Detroit Tigers. World Series Baseball '95 feels more like this or of this one, and that's what feelings I think good baseball games like this one should emit. It's that feeling of BLESS! YOU! BOYS!
However, the pitcher/batter relationship is very good (this game really revolves around the strike zone - right down to camera angle) and there's lots of options, including all 28 major league teams and ballparks (something the much more powerful Saturn version cannot claim).
The Video Game Critic
The pace of the game hasn't improved at all. You'll still need to wait for the pitcher to compose himself before each pitch, and the scoreboard is shown before each batter, which is irritating as all hell. In the final analysis, World Series 95 is just a modest upgrade.
