Computer Gamer
One of the nicest things about Hardball is that the computer plays a good but not impossible game. OK, you will probably lose at first but you will not be outclassed and the thrill of hitting your first home run is tremendous (in one rival baseball simulation, I lost my first match 64-0. I have not played that game since!). The animation is excellent and you don't have to be a baseball fan to enjoy the game although I suspect that as a lot of people will have been watching the World Series on Channel 4 recently, they will be itching to have a go. A great game, highly recommended.
Hardball : avant de jouer, commencez surtout par vous imprégner des règles assez complexes du baseball. Vous disposez d'une équipe complète et il vous faudra savoir changer à l'occasion de lanceur ou de rattrapeur en fonction de leur état de fatigue. Le jeu est bien rendu.
