Bases Loaded II is a wonderful sequel to the iconic Bases Loaded. I never played it when I was younger, and honestly if I did before Bases Loaded, I'd choose Bases Loaded II any day. The sideways view deserves some of the criticism it receives, but it's not nearly as difficult as people make it out to be. It's rather easy, in fact, to get the fielding down in this game and once you do it's ten times more intutitive and fun than Bases Loaded. As far as sequels go, Bases Loaded II did it right. Now let's see what the other two have to offer, which I can tell you now isn't much. This is pretty much where the series left off for me, so if you're looking for a legit, realistic baseball game for the NES, Bases Loaded II is the one for you.
