Summary: Placed this order for a Christmas present. When package arrived, it was the football equivalent to the baseball game. I had little hope in returning it and getting the correct game before Christmas, so I let it ride and wrapped the football game which my son really enjoys. Still, would have preferred to receive the game that I ordered.
Summary: We bought this game for my son but it ended being a family favorite. The graphics are great - there's even a couple of old gentleman sitting on a bench muttering throughout the games. It's challenging enough that my husband and 8 yr old son enjoy playing but easy enough to learn that my 5 yr old daughter can play w/ help. And I'm not a sports game kinda chick, but even I like playing it. (that's high praise, people!
A rating of "terrible" from someone who doesn't say it that often.

Summary: I was excited about this game. I'm a huge baseball fan and liked the idea of a game that took the "sandlot pick me up game" and expanded on it. After playing the game and trying to learn it, I have to say: The best part of the game is the cover artwork, after that everything is just plain, simple BAD. Most annoying is the controls. They actually are a bit complicated, I would not hand this to anyone under 15 years old.
Summary: This game is great. We just bought a WII and we love this game. Its very interactive. 4 people can play, 2 on each team, 1 person pitches and the other controls the field. When batting only the person batting can control the base runners. This game is so fun..
Summary: When I gave this to my kids (an 11 year old girl and a 6 year old boy), they figured it out right away. Both of them said that the controls (for the players and game actions) were easy to figure out and remember, which is not always the case for Wii games. They were laughing out loud while they were playing, so I'm thinking that the "fun" level is pretty high. They loved that you could steal bases (and apparently that's what was so humorous).
