An interesting twist on a sports title

This game gives players a fast pace baseball game with some twists to create more exciting game play. It can be enjoyed by a baseball purist, but the target audience would be more of the casual baseball fan or gamers who are not very big into sports games.

There is a Rookie challenge that is fun to play through and gives several different challenges rather then just winning a game. Although the Rookie Challenge is a great season-esc mode it seems to lack completeness.

They include a twist on home run derby along with the classical game and it is addicting. Rather then having a curtain number of balls to hit home runs you have 3 strikes. For each miss you get a strike and when you have 3 you are done. Along with this you are not hitting home runs, but rather standing in, I believe, Time Square trying to hit things for points.

This game is definitely worth a rental and possibly a buy. I know I will be adding this to my collection because of the great game play it has.

This game has a slugfest way of playing. The way u play is rough and people who like sports would love this game. Its the ultimate sport game. Theres no punching but theres a lot of hitting the ball hard at the pitchers head and it goes into the stands.

Great... but repetative

So, I love baseball games. I love MLB 07, but the idea of nba/nfl street meets mlb slugfest sounded cool enough while i waited for ncaa and madden. I was very surprised with how cool it was. I am almost through with the rookie season and I have had a blast. The cut scenes can be a little repetative on easy, but as you move it up, you find yourself doing less of the same thing and just getting it done any way possible.
If you like baseball, it's cool. Maybe if you like baseball, but are not a fan of the lengthy slow process of it you might like this game even more. As it is fast paced and the games are almost all cut to 5 innings. If you like NBA Street (and I say NBA rather than NFL because the repetitiveness is similar to The Bigs) and you like Slugfest's concept, then you will love this game!
