All Star Baseball 99

Get the game at!

Reviewed by Mitch Ozer This game is by far the best sports game out on the Nintendo 64. All Star Baseball has everything that you could want from a baseball game. You name it and it has it. Well almost(no instant replay feature).All Star Baseball is a must buy. Acclaim has improved by far over National Football League Quarterback Club 98.

Graphics 9.5 out of 10

These are very well the best graphics on any game of any system. The hi-rez graphics make it so incredibly beautiful. When All Star Baseball's graphics are compared to those of Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffy Jr., Griffy's game looks like Griffy's game is at least a year older. Also when you are choosing your stadium, you can take a tour of any of the 30 stadiums. The stadiums look exactly like the ones in real life. Another thing that is so spectacular is the player animations. With batting only the animations are outstanding. There are over 100 different batting stances. They range from the standing stance of Ken Griffy Jr. to the crouch of Mark McGwire to the open stance of Andres Galaragga. In the field the player animations are incredible. Players dive, scale the wall to rob a homerun and make running throws.

Music and Sound 7 out of 10

The music in All Star Baseball isn't all that impressive. There isn't even all that much music in the game. The sound effects are another story. They are great. You can hear the sound when the batter swings the bat or when the pitcher releases the ball. The commentary by Micheal Kay and John Sterling is really neat. They call all the plays exactly when they happen. Some of the comments get used way to much though. One example is "That was the perfect pitch in that situation."

Game Challenge 7 out of 10

Since All Star Baseball is a sports game you can choose from three different difficultly levels: Rookie, Veteren, and All Star. Once you get the controls down the Rookie level is pretty simple. When you move on to the Veteren and All Star levels, your yellow ball cursor gets smaller and more difficult to aim with so it is harder to get a hit. Also the computer AI (artificial intelligence) gets harder.

Game Play-Fun 9 out of 10

In my opinion All Star Baseball is extremely fun. Other people might have different opinions. I really enjoy games like this: pure simulation. People who like more arcade style and fast-paced games might get bored of this game after a few innings. People like that should try Major League Baseball Featuring Ken Griffey Jr., if they don't mind blurry graphics and hitting homeruns on every pitch in the homerun derby. I think that All Star Baseball is the most fun baseball game on any system.


There are a couple of things that are frustrating about All Star Baseball. The thing that is most annoying is when they call a runner safe when he was out by a mile. Same thing goes for when they call the runner out when he was safe by a mile. Another thing is that in some copies of the game there are a lot of bugs. One example is the pitching cursor freezing up in the middle of the game.

Replayability 9 out of 10

This game is really fun and will keep me busy for a long time. Since All Star Baseball is a sports game and you can't really beat it there is no repetition. This game has a real long replay value.

Game Value 8 out of 10

All Star Baseball is definitely worth the price. It would be nice if it was cheaper but you should definitely buy this game.

Overall 9 out of 10

Buy this game. It's as simple as that. Everything is good about it. The graphics are stunning, the animations are breath taking, the game play is great, and most of all it's extremely fun.
