I will start by saying in all fairness, im not a big sports game fan, arcade or sim I do get the occasional football/Baseball urge though considering i am a fan of the actual sports themselves. That being said, I found the bigs to be more often clunky and frustrating than fun, and what your looking for in an arcade sports game....or any game really....is fun. The fielding and Base running are annoying at there very best of times, taking your finger off of the joystick will cause a player to come to a dead stop a foot from the base itself, while this might indicate a certain level of control, it really has no place in an arcade Baseball game. On the other end of the spectrum, it feels like you have to almost break your stick to get a fielder to go in the direction of the ball, fielding is painfully unresponsive. The point i did like best though and stood out to me was the pitching, it's the one point of the game that i actually felt was well handled. The turbo system was neat, but forgettable.

When I first started to play this game I really enjoyed it but after a week I wanted to throw it out the window. I was simply tired of the same thing over and over again. I completed the rookie mode and then turned to the home run pinball which is a simple game mode in which a pick any hitter and hit balls in the middle of New York City. After three times of the pinball I didn't want to paly it again. I then tried the online mode and it lags horribly. Maybe the next version will have more to keep me entertained. Untill then I would suggest only renting this game and not purchasing it.
