This one's strictly for the converted - to the extent that if you know nothing about baseball you'll need a trained interpreter to read the instructions. Getting into the game is hard than virtually any game I've played in the past year, but it's worth it once you've mastered it - or so I am told by a baseball fan who rates it. Though not a impressive as the original C64 version (the game was first released by Activision, to fairly universal indifference), it's apparently quite a good sim. Just don't ask me to play it again, that's all - I think I'd have more fun translating the Aeneid into Welsh. Such games are notoriously hard to mar - are you marking it for the general punter, or for the enthusiast? Well, I'd like to be fair about this, but unfortunately years of being unfair about everything have perverted my once pure and noble mind, so I shan't be. Non-baseball fans should steer well clear.
