Wii Sports Baseball is packed in with every new console sold – strike one against this NES classic. This game has also been re-released recently in a few other places, including an emulated appearance in Animal Crossing for the GameCube and an e-Card version for Game Boy Advance – strike two. But Baseball's important place in Nintendo's history, its two-player support and its still-intact sense of fun keep it from striking out. If you're a fan of hard hits, home runs and horsehide, give Baseball a try – it's less than the price of Cracker Jacks and a ballpark frank.

If you spent hours of your youth playing Baseball it may be worth $5 as a piece of nostalgia, but anyone looking for an enjoyable game will likely be disappointed, as Baseball is just too simplistic.

Summing it all up, Nintendo’s Baseball is not much fun to play nowadays. Every player is the same so any idea of strategy is thrown out of the window, you can’t get involved in the fielding, the gameplay moves at a very slow pace. The graphics and music have dated horribly in a way that obstructs the enjoyment of the game, unlike say Excitebike which still has a bit of magic.

Even if you're a massive fan of baseball, it's hard to see how much enjoyment you'd get out of this rather stunted representation of the sport. We advise that you stick to the baseball game on Wii Sports or wait for Tecmo Baseball on the NES which is a much better game all-round.
