Inroduction:

As I said in my review of the first Baseball Stars game, I don't really know all that much about the sport and I am not a fan so it's hard for me to review a game like this. I did manage to get some enjoyment out of Baseball Stars Pro though, and what I can tell you about Baseball Stars 2 is that it is a much improved sequel.


Gameplay:

This game works in the same way as the first one, but has some good game play improvements. It is a lot easier to hit the ball and thanks to ever so slightly changed camera angles and controls that feel a little better, you will find that pitching, fielding and batting are now a little easier as well. I actually managed to hit a lot of home runs in this one!

Before the game starts you have a choice of what control method you want to use, either Manual or Auto. I don't really know the exact difference, because the instructions in the game are fairly poor. There isn't really much else that I can say because obviously it isn't going to be that much different than before. Suffice to say that the game play is definitely better though.

Graphics & Sound:

The graphics are much nicer in this game. The players are bigger and better animated and everything just has a much improved look overall. There are lots of little close up shots of the players diving for the ball, or the players running to each base, which look cool. The sound is very similar to the first game, but that isn't a bad thing as the sound was O.K. before anyway. The music could be a little bit less annoying than it is, but the sound effects and usual over the top speech (“STEEEERIIIIKKE 1!!!”) are very good.


Overall:

If you have played and enjoyed Baseball Stars Pro, then you will definitely like this. If you didn't like it, B.S.2 isn't going to change your mind at all. I am not a big fan of baseball, but I did play this game for a little while, especially in 2 player mode which is a lot more fun than playing against the CPU. It is a better game than the original at the very least.


Graphics: 7/10
Sound: 7/10
Game play: 7/10
Replay Value: 7/10

Overall Rating: 7.5/10
