Bases Loaded has a few features that could have used adjustment, and it's very difficult to get used to batting, but thankfully if you put in the time you'll have a lot of fun with it. There's a reason this was the most popular baseball title for the NES, in spite of what modern fans might tell you about games like Baseball Stars. Bases Loaded has real challenge, real action, and real depth. It's one of my favorite baseball titles for the NES, and it's not due to nostalgia.

Bases Loaded is a sub-par stadium hot dog: I was probably overcharged for it, but I didn’t get poisoned and it filled me up properly.

Bases Loaded's background music plays non-stop, which would be irritating if it wasn't so freakin' good! Fielders sound like they're squealing as they throw the ball, but the clear synthesized umpire voices sound great. Bases Loaded lacks a major league license, which may explain why my favorite player is "Paste" from the New Jersey team. With so many overly-complex baseball games on the market today, it sure feels good to get "back to the basics" with a classic like this.
This a decent option among the early baseball crop, and the season mode is nice, but better baseball titles were still to come.

If baseball is your thing, you could do a lot worse than Bases Loaded. It offers lots of replay value if playing with a friend, and if you are determined enough working through a season will no doubt take you several weeks of determined play. However, while Bases Loaded has aged gracefully and still offers a solid gaming experience, realistically you are going to probably get more enjoyment out of Baseball Stars 2 for the Neo Geo, which is also available on the Virtual Console. Nevertheless this is still worth considering as another take on the beloved American sport.

Bases Loaded may have been fun in 1988 but it pales in comparison to Baseball Stars 1 &2, the R.B.I. Baseball series, Baseball Simulator 1.000 and many others. It doesn’t have real players and the gameplay is frustratingly slow. I guarantee that you will have more fun playing some of these other baseball games over the Bases Loaded series.

Bases Loaded isn't a terrible baseball game, it's just incredibly basic. It's also harmed quite a bit by the fact that the Neo Geo hit Baseballs Stars 2 is already available for download in the Wii Shop as well, as it's much more worth a look even at a pricepoint four dollars higher than Loaded here. Those fans who first followed Jaleco's Bases Loaded series in the late '80s and early '90s might still want to invest 500 Wii Points to get a nostalgic fix, but for everyone else this one is a miss. Maybe next season.
This game is a mixed bag. It has attractive animation and good graphics combined with a very intensive hitter-pitcher simulation. However, the frustrations frequently threaten to overwhelm its virtues. (Apr 14, 2008)
Still the game isn’t without its charm. The experience is still fun even if the game hasn’t aged all that well. Going through a full season is pretty daunting but as a multiplayer game, it’s still enjoyable. The sound effects are pretty primal but it doesn’t have some voice overs from the umpires and the music is still as catchy as ever, especially when smashing a homerun. Gamers who have never experienced this game, may find it too slow to play but for those who remember the game fondly, it’s still a fun game to pull out when friends are over from time to time.
