Fun, easy to play, great with a buddy or by yourself

Summary: I love baseball very much and I generally enjoy realism in video games, but have found most of the sports games frankly post-SNES to be difficult to get the controls down. With baseball games, for example, I cannot stand having to locate my swing where the pitch is going to be, adjust the power bar, etc etc etc. I just like being able to press one button to swing the darn bat and time the swing well - have the timing be the major factor, in other words.
Summary: This was our son's 2nd foray into sports games (had Madden 2003 Football, but never got the hang of the controls, etc.). He has loved it since the 1st play, and Dad (even Mom!) have fun playing. There are a variety of pitches available, as well as hitting and fielding options. Hitting a batter with a pitch causes them to get consumed by fire and run after the pitcher.
Summary: This game was alright at first to me because i hadn't had a baseball game in a long time. but then it got old fast. this is arcade and i'm beggining to HATE it. its totally un-realistic. you can puch the fielders to make them drop the ball! also, when you are running toward a base and the fielder is in your way you can jump up and kick him! Its really dumb.
Summary: This is a pretty good game the graphics are good and so is most every thing else. This game is awesome but it has some flaws 1.the computers are invincible 2.they can beat you worst team against best team But it is an awesome buy if you have a bro or sis that likes playing but if your an only child or your family members dont like vds theres not much point
Summary: First things first: this is not a baseball simulation game. It is an arcade-style baseball game and, therefore, is perfect for people who are not hardcore baseball fans (like me). You don't have to worry about pitch location and bat location on your swing, you simply play arcade-style baseball, which, IMO, is why this game is so fun. The game is not meant to be taken seriously. If you get two hits in a row, you are on fire, literally, and all of your stats increase.
Summary: If you want a baseball game get Slugfest 2004. It is a lot better then last year. The announcing is great. Although they only give you a certain amount of players for home run derby. The fighting makes it even more awsome. Get this game!
Its not about franchise its about clearing the bench

Summary: This is not, I repeat not, supposed to be a sim. If you are looking for an extensive franchise mode, or a indepth manager mode this is not the game for you. BUT it is the only baseball game with a punch button. This is the NFL Blitz of Baseball. It is fun it is fast. it is not meant to be a sim. The graphics are great the play is great. But it is not a sim. Its fun and fast. You know what real baseball isnt.
