The Video Game Critic (Jun 18, 2006)
Playing head-to-head is great, but the single-player mode is respectable as well, with aggressive CPU-controlled opponents that even try to steal bases. SportsTalk lets you play a whole season via the battery backup, but its menu interface is woefully slow and clunky. One bizarre "feature" is the game's "domination" rule, which abruptly ends the contest when one team goes up by ten runs. What the heck is that all about? Another issue is the lack of an instant replay. Oh well, this is a 1992 game, so I guess you can't ask for too much. But if you're looking for pure fun, Sportstalk Baseball is definitely the way to go.

Overall, Sports Talk Baseball is an absolute classic for the Genesis. No, its not god's gift to baseball video games, or even god's gift to the Genesis, but this game is just so much fun and you have to believe me on that one. If you see it in your retro gaming store for fewer than fifteen dollars (or euros, or whatever), certainly pick it up. It is totally worth an immense number of hours of play.
Spielen läßt sich STB hervorragend und steht in nichts einer anderen Baseball-Simulation für das Mega Drive nach. Sogar das Rutschen der Läufer zu einer Base muß nun per Knopfdruck ausgelöst werden, was sonst immer automatisch vollzogen wurde. Freilich können die Feldspieler springen, hechten und rennen, sowie die Läufer ‘Bases‘ stehlen, was alles durch Drücken auf einen Button selbst ausgelöst werden muß. Das Auswechseln von Spielern ist natürlich ebenfalls möglich. Da das gesamte Geschehen grafisch ordentlich verpackt wurde und nicht nur dank der ständigen Kommentare äußerst realistisch ist, darf ich ruhigen Gewissens Sports Talk Baseball zur besten Simulation dieser tollen Sportart ernennen, die Segas Konsole bisher in den Modulschacht bekommen hat.
No team logos are featured but that is not a big deal. MLBPA Sportstalk Baseball may have began the revolution of having announcers in baseball games but that doesn't make it spectacular. Overall this is an average baseball game with an irritating announcer.
