Super Mega Baseball is one of the most enjoyable, satisfying games I've played in a long time. Sometimes, we get so caught up with the necessity for realism and authenticity, so as to show off the power of our fancy new hardware, that we forget a video game truism: A game doesn't have to be realistic to be fun.

The lack of any true tutorial system has truly done the game a disservice

Actually, screw(ball) it. Baseball is cricket's sexier, more confident, and more exciting older cousin, and is better in every way.

A good arcade baseball title, one of the best of its kind in several years. Worth a look if you like fast-paced baseball action.

Super Mega Baseball is an enjoyable throwback to a time when sports games were for everyone rather than just enthusiasts.

While Super Mega Baseball won't go down as the next great feat around the diamond, it is a fairly good representation of the sport, even this deep in its off-season. The modes are a little short-handed, but the gameplay has its heart in the right place, and the presentation is amusing enough to keep a goofy grin on your face as you belt one out of the park. Play ball!

Super Mega Baseball definitely hits a homerun. The title's arcade leanings may not make it especially suitable for long play sessions, and the umpire may be more irritating than Phillie Phanatic, but it really excels in short bursts. With sound mechanics and some great difficulty tuning options, this should appeal to everyone – whether you're a baseball fan or not.

Even with the issues, if I kept the difficulty reasonable, ignored the batting reticle, learned to work with the pitching target and never tried to steal, I had a good time with the game.
