Bases Loaded 3
Jaleco is bringing out the third in the series of it's popular Bases Loaded baseball games. This time, besides improving just the graphics and sounds, the simulation of realistic play has also been enhanced with more features. Play against the computer and it will 'think' smarter and pose more of a challenge than in previous versions. But the player control hasn't been sacrificed as after only minimal practice, you'll be picking off the computer base runners and develop the technique of stealing bases.

Step up to the plate one more time in this classic baseball series. This latest version rates the gameplayer in 13 different categories, has five different difficulty levels, three fields, and an edit function that enables the player to alter team stats.
Jaleco will soon produce the third installment of their hit series, Bases Loaded. The game is played in a behind-overhead perspective. The game contains many improvements over the previous version in all aspects of the game. Other things that this cart contains is a mode that you can switch off the music and sound effects. The stats and names of the players can be changed as well. Fans of the originals rejoice.
While I'm a big fan of baseball games, this update to the original Bases Loaded seems slightly unnecessary to me. The game progression is not that pronounced and the graphics, set-up and execution each require a longer-than-average curve to learn. I pass.
I like baseball games and they have improved dramatically over the last year. But the only reason to bring out a new version is if there are MAJOR improvements. The game is slightly better than BL2 but this version is hard to get used to. It's not a bad game, but not revolutionary.
Bases Loaded 3 looks just like Super Bases Loaded for the SNES. However, the graphics and game play aren't as good as BL2. The reverse perspective doesn't work when you are hitting and fielding the ball. The idea was good to revamp BL2 but it just didn't work.
Bases Loaded 3 is an example of a game that seems to have been rushed through production. The game play is not spectacular and not as good as BL2. The graphics are better and approach that of their S-NES version. The other improvements are minor and not spectacular.
