World Series Baseball is every bit as enjoyable as the 64 version. It's great fun playing the computer and I can imagine it would be even better against a real opponent.

I'm not exactly well clued up in the field of baseball and have never thrilled to the delights experienced by your average American. But a couple of plays of this soon changed my whole outlook. Love it! The excellent attention to detail is really good and adds immensely to the game (Not that a lot needs adding).

Une fois assimilées les règles de ce sport peu connu en France, le jeu devient passionnant. L'ambiance est particulièrement bien rendue et le réalisme poussé jusqu'aux publicités passant sur l'écran vidéo ; même les majorettes défilant pour encourager leur équipe y sont. Un très bon jeu, aux graphismes de qualité.

While Hardball offers a more realistic game, WSB remains as much fun now as when it was first released. Highly recommended, and good preparation for seeing all the new baseball movies coming out now.

Imagine's early attempt isn't the most accurate of baseball sims, but makes up for this with good playability. There's no detailed player stats (not even names), and the general lack of realism is typified by a strange pitching system. The ball is seen zooming along a horizontally scrolling window and its movements can be dramatically affected at any time by the pitcher! Despite this, games tend to be free-scoring with lots of hectic base running and fielding. There's plenty of good ol' razzmatazz too with colourful graphics and jolly tunes.

Wie schon erwähnt, ist der Computer recht spielstark, eher schon zu stark. Aber am meisten Spaß machen solche Spiele ja sowieso zu zweit. Für Anfänger kommt die komplizierte Bedienung erschwerend hinzu. Wer sich aber trotzdem nicht abschrecken läßt, der erhält eine der besten Mannschafts-Simulationen, die es derzeit gibt.

Peut-être moins attrayant qu'un tennis ou un football, World Series Baseball est néanmoins séduisant.

The name Imagine gives rise to all sorts of suspicions, but we were gratified to see that World Series Baseball is not at all bad. You can play the computer or a friend, and the screen shows a representation of the baseball diamond with crowds and a giant screen for advertising and scores.
