Bo Jackson Baseball
  • Type: Sport
  • Available: September 1991
  • Difficulty: Average

The minds from Data East have come up with the new form of baseball simulation. Bo Jacksons has you hitting and pitching all of the different forms known in a professional game. A lot of variety has gone into this cart, like different catches where you can jump and dive for the ball and others like stealing bases. This cart contains all that a baseball fans wants and can now have.

People say:


This game just doesn't have the heart and soul necessary to stand apart from the many other similar titles now available. On its own Bo knows how to dish up average graphics and limited game play. Instead of taking us in the new directions, you get the same old rehash.


It is getting harder and harder to make significant improvements to the existing baseball games. While Japan has to have new games every year the U.S. is different. This is a good game in it's own right but virtually every player already has a baseball game in their library.


Yet another baseball cart that falls short in terms of game play. The graphics are good but the pitching and the batting are awkward and become frustrating. There are a couple of original features like instant replay but not enough to save this cart from the me-too blues.


Nope! Bo don't know video games! If he did, B.J. Baseball would have been smoother, cleaner, and have more options than it does The music isn't horrid, but it needs a little work. The graphics are better than an Atari 2600, but the buck stops here. This game will sell on name alone.

Like the famous athlete, this Gameboy cartridge allows the player to participate in both baseball and football. The baseball game is 3D and the football is overhead.

This two-player title shows you that "Bo knows the NES". Large graphics, close-up infield action, and an icon driven gaming interface give the game an all-pro advantage.
