Cal Ripken Baseball's graphics aren't very detailed, but the players look sharp. Perhaps in an attempt to reproduce the grass-cutting patterns you see at many ballparks, the fields sport fat green stripes on the grass that look really, really bad. The control is much better than the Genesis version, except for the diving, which is terribly clumsy. The baseball has a tiny shadow that makes fly balls difficult to track down. In terms of audio, this is a pretty quiet game. Low-key background music plays throughout the contest, and an enthusiastic umpire calls strikes and outs. Cal Ripken Baseball's best feature is the "zoom window" which displays full screen close-ups of exciting plays. These are cool but brief, so don't blink or you may miss them! All in all, this is a repectable baseball game for the SNES, but there's no way it can compete with the faster and more polished Ken Griffey Baseball.
Total! (Germany)
Hauptmanko sind aber ganz klar die zu geringen Beeinflussungsmöglichkeiten der Spieler. Beim Schlagen kann der Ball angeschnitten werden, die Fänger auf dem Feld werfen sich die Bälle aber praktisch von selbst zu. Spieltiefe wird noch nicht einmal über Statistik und Menüs angedeutet. Baseball-Fans werden enttäuscht sein und die Feinheiten der Sportart schmerzlich vermissen. Solltet Ihr an einer guten Baseball-Simulation interessiert sein, wartet lieber auf andere Versionen.

Overall, this game is just plain boring. There are no real bugs but just plenty of flaws that should have been worked on. There are far better baseball games out there, including 8 bit ones. This is at or near the bottom of the 16 bit pack.
