Alright sports fans, get ready to step up to the plate with Super Batter Up from Namco. Come out of the dugout and experience exciting baseball action with real major league team rosters, great baseball music, one or two player capabilities and gameplay that just won't quit!

An extensive list of options lets you customize your game. Pick from a large roster of teams and players. You can also select a stadium in which to play.

The graphics are smooth and the sound effects are really well-done. You can even hear the "whiff" of the ball when it is thrown from one player to another! See you at the park!

The sports series for the Game Gear has been extended with its first baseball game - Batter Up. If you liked RBI, then you'll like this one.

Step up to the plate and swing your way into the latest baseball cart for the Super NES. Choose from real major league team rosters, using 1 or 2 players. There is plenty of baseball action as well as options ranging from different stadiums to number of innings to pitchers. Several extra scenes, like the postgame show and national anthem give an added sense of realism. A solid hit!

People say:

5.0

While it's necessary to review this game on its own merits, there's nothing to be found in this package that hasn't been tried before. The game further handicaps players and itself by limiting, rather than building on, options that are found in most baseball games being released today. Not extraordinary in any sense.

5.0

With all the baseball games out, this one doesn't quite go the extra inning to become anything exceptional. Animation suffers from the lack of crisp looking graphics, but the sound makes a definite statement. This game would have benefited from the addition of more features and more attention to detail.

4.0

Here's another baseball cart for the Super NES that really doesn't show off the system or play very well. The graphics are plain and would be fitting for an 8-Bit system. Having real players is no fun when you don't have the teams. The music and sounds are really good, but sound effects can't save this mediocre effort.

5.0

I don't know what the programmers were thinking on this one! I can't stress how important detailed graphics and super animation is for a baseball title, not to mention play control! Super Batter Up doesn't really enforce any of these qualities and leaves me wondering why they can't put some new twists on this sport!

The nation's favorite pastime is reproduced once again with new style in Namco's contribution to the video baseball battles. Super Batter-Up combines the lively graphics and animation afforded by the Nintendo 16-Bitter with a fine attention to baseball detail. The game attempts to spice up the feel of conventional baseball carts by adding a variety of options and including actual players!

The options that have been programmed into Super Batter-Up range from control over background details such as line-ups and pitching changes to the selection of stadiums. This is a particularly important feature since each complex has a different construction and challenge.

Although standard video baseball interaction is present (highlighted by proven hitting and fielding perspectives), extra touches such as the singing of the national anthem increase the game's overall realism.
