Mega Fun (May, 1993)
Naja, das Drumherum bei Tony La Russa Baseball hat gewohntes EA-Niveau: Statistiken bis zum Erbrechen können bearbeitet und studiert werden, jedes Team und jeder Spieler sind bis ins kleinste Detail aufgeführt. Alleine hierfür sind mehrere Tage notwendig, um einen gewissen Durchblick zu bekommen. Das Match selber hat leider seine Schattenseiten. Sind Schlag- und Wurfteil mit guter Animation und logischer Steuerung sehr gut gelungen, fällt dagegen die Spielfelddarstellung mit Mini-Sprites als Fängern (Game Gear-Niveau) und Ruckeln ohne Ende kraß ab. Die erbärmliche Soundkulisse sowie auch die teilweise unverständlichen vorhandenen Kommentare schwächen den Gesamteindruck nochmal ab. Es ist leider das erste Mal, daß mich ein. EA-Sportspiel enttäuscht. Da kann ich nur hoffen, daß bald eine Fortsetzung folgt, in der die technischen Fehler ausgemerzt werden.

Just stick to MVP Baseball 2005 for PS2 or Xbox (not backwards compatible, if you were wondering); it's a lot more worthwhile. Mark Bussler of Classic Game Room got it right when he said: "can't we use old EA Sports cartridges to plug up the oil spill in the gulf coast?." Had he spoken about Bill Walsh College Football, I would have blown a blood vessel. This game, not so much.
The Video Game Critic (Jun 18, 2004)
Tony LaRussa Baseball is a comedy of errors. The control is poor, the announcer sounds like he's choking on a hot dog, and the crowd seems oblivious to what's going on. There are numerous annoying pauses that occur for no reason in particular and slow the action to a crawl. Runners don't automatically run on base hits, and outfielders routinely throw out runners going to first base. The fields look good, but the stadiums all look the same. This is the only game I've ever seen where the pitcher spits on the mound, and it looks positively disgusting. EA had made some great football, basketball and hockey games in the early 90's. What happened with baseball?
