Bottom of the Ninth is one game no baseball fan should be without. Even if you are not a baseball fan, the gameplay is fun enough to satisfy. This is one of those games that makes your family happy that you invested in a second TV, and overall rates a solid 90 out of 100.
What all this adds up to is a great arcade/simulation combo that is highly recommended and a ton of fun.
Serious baseball fiends will enjoy this ballpark's authentic, challenging gameplay - at least until the next wave of PlayStation baseball games arrives this summer.
While Konami's Bottom Of The Ninth may not look as impressive as its previous sports titles, the gameplay is so deep as to more than make up for it.
I certainly don't have too much of a problem with this, though. For the most part, MLBPA: Bottom of the 9th is a worthy baseball title. How's that, Egbert?
One camera angle really hurts, otherwise it's a nice looking B-Ball game that plays very well. Basically video game baseball, no matter how dressed up, is just repetition. The 32-bit versions look real nice but until I get a real time hat cam, I'm steerin' clear.
All in all, Bottom of the 9th is an enjoyable baseball experience that should not be missed by those bored with traditional offerings.
Bottom of the 9th is an odd case where its graphics are so bad they're good, and its smooth, arcade-style gameplay is timeless.
The game is nice to look at but it's a real pain to play. The learning curve for hitting is too long. It's hard to hit the ball, and you get killed...I mean killed...by the computer's AI. It's a good first effort, but the gameplay needs a lot of work. The practice feature is a nice touch, but I would definitely rent this game and give it a first try.
