Summary

Even today nothing compares

The Good

Everything. From the ability to create and manipulate your own team, the season mode and of course, STATs. This game had it all. When I was a senior in college in 1990 we played this game practically every night for a solid semester. In fact, I had one friend who became so possessed by this game that he let his grades slip so badly he didn't make it back to school the following semester.

The game play was simple, fluid and extremely easy to pick up. Still love being able to scale the wall to rob someone of a homerun

The Bad

NOTHING.

The Bottom Line

14 years later this is still the most fun baseball game I've ever played, and I have all 3 consoles (PS2, XBOX & GC). Obviously today's graphics are quite superior, but nothing has matched SNK's gameplay. I just fired up the game today for the 1st time in 10 years. It was like finding an old friend.

This will remain as the standard bearer for all baseball video games. A true CLASSIC!!!!!
