Bases Loaded has a few features that could have used adjustment, and it's very difficult to get used to batting, but thankfully if you put in the time you'll have a lot of fun with it. There's a reason this was the most popular baseball title for the NES, in spite of what modern fans might tell you about games like Baseball Stars. Bases Loaded has real challenge, real action, and real depth. It's one of my favorite baseball titles for the NES, and it's not due to nostalgia.
The Video Game Critic
Bases Loaded's background music plays non-stop, which would be irritating if it wasn't so freakin' good! Fielders sound like they're squealing as they throw the ball, but the clear synthesized umpire voices sound great. Bases Loaded lacks a major league license, which may explain why my favorite player is "Paste" from the New Jersey team. With so many overly-complex baseball games on the market today, it sure feels good to get "back to the basics" with a classic like this.
Bases Loaded may have been fun in 1988 but it pales in comparison to Baseball Stars 1 &2, the R.B.I. Baseball series, Baseball Simulator 1.000 and many others. It doesn’t have real players and the gameplay is frustratingly slow. I guarantee that you will have more fun playing some of these other baseball games over the Bases Loaded series.
