great game for young kids if you like baseball and nick its awesome great graphics and the gameplay is awesome
"The Bigs" with Nicktoons (and less features)
(Note, I do not have Kinect, so I can't speak on this aspect). Nicktoons MLB is built on the exact same engine as "The Bigs" down to the same taunting motions. Like my critique of "The Bigs," the camera is zoomed in too close for my tastes. The pitching mechanism is actually okay, but the hitting it left strictly up to timing and not location (again, same critique as "The Bigs"). The "distance challenge," like the hitting, is all about timing, and you mysteriously have bull-eye accuracy. The only upside to this game is that the fictional stadiums are fun-looking, but that's it. And Spongebob is a southpaw with a great sinker, who knew?
Good game, great for young kids or average casual
Good Game. The game is a good game for young kids or casual gamers. Very good game if you are not competitive.
Tricks are for Kids!
This game would probably be something good for a kid who is on the little league team and watches nick when he comes home. Another failure from 2k sports baseball. The graphics are good, commentary is corny, and camera is frustrating. If you want decent baseball. Stay in the majors(MLB 2k, The Show) and out of the minors(backyard, THIS!)
they r missin arnold from hey arnold!!! hes the one who likes baseball more than any nicktoon put together!!!!
This is a well put together game, the graphics aren't bad and the gameplay is great. The game is really fun and the achievements are easy to get. I have 11 of 35 and only played for 1 hour 15 minutes. It is fun. Get it.
I got this game for my kids and they like the game a lot.First thing that came to my attention was the graphics they are great ,nicktoons characters and mlb players are detailed,and the stadium are all great to look at as well.Kinect is works well with the game is slightly one second late it does not ruin the experience but is a good thing makes it a little harder to bat.The first 3 times i bated i strike out after that i was hitting like a mlb player not a nicktoon lol.My kids also were hitting the ball as well.Nick toon characters are cool they have some old ones like ren and stimby and some new ones lie sponge bob and patrick.I gave this game a great score becuase this game caught me by surprise great gameplay great graphics all in all great fun for kids and adults.When i have freinds and family over this is the first game we play.
I got this game for my kids they were happy with the game.Including my self the first thing that surprise me was the graphics to this game impressive did not expect this from this game.Started to play it was great.Kinect is a second late put that makes the game not that easy that u hit every ball.Does not ruin the experience u get use to it ,i strike out the first 3 times then i was hitting like a pro not like a nicktoon lol.Nicktoons characters r cool hopefully they ad more later.The game is good it impress me thats why it got good score.When freinds and family get together this is the game we play .Get the game u will be surprise.
A little disappointed
I thought the Nicktoons characters would be cool to play baseball with, ...and they are. Some of the Nicktoons characters are not playable in the game. I guess they could not get them all in there (No Jimmy Neutron). I played the game with the Kinect controller and the Kinect reacts a little slow making it difficult to pitch and bat. The game has some nice graphics and sound for the characters, but the gameplay mechanics could be much tighter like Kinect Sports or Wii Sports Baseball. Hopefully 2ksports will do a patch to fix the Kinect accuracy. Still a fun game though.
That is just so Awesome two great things coming together Nicktoons and baseball!!! i.m probably not going to pre order this game but buy it and play it when it comes out absolutely!
