A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive messages

The famous players add a sense of positivity to the title by making these minigames fun to explore.

Positive role models & representations

The athletes themselves are role models, but there's nothing else in the title to help promote positive actions. 

Ease of play

Easy-to-learn controls make for a very approachable game for younger players.

Violence & scariness

Very mild comic violence, such as ramming a small remote control car into another to knock them off a base.

Language
Consumerism

Being a game about baseball, it is inherently commercial. Favorite teams are featured, along with their logos and emblems.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that baseball themed minigame collection includes aspects of the sport, but no way to play a proper game of baseball. With over twenty minigames, it’s likely to have a few that will keep young gamers' attention. The ease of the title makes it more suitable for the under 10 crowd, and older gamers are likely to tire quite quickly or wish to play a real game of baseball. The Motion Plus accessory is supported within the title, but not a requirement.

What's it about?

BASEBALL BLAST is a collection of themed minigames meant to capitalize on the casual appeal that only the Wii can bring. Featuring teams from both the National and American leagues, everyone’s favorite team is included and the superstar for each team becomes the character you control throughout the title. With over twenty games, kids will throw the balls to collect icons, hit home-runs, catc fly balls, and strike out consecutive players with various pitches.

Is it any good?

Kids can play through all of the minigames within a couple of hours, including needing to retry some. Fortunately, some games are locked until you complete tasks such as collecting trophies scattered in a city, or identifying a mystery fan in the stands within a time limit. This does add a level of replay to the game where younger gamers will need to attempt the differing difficulty levels in order to play all the game types. With easy-to-learn and master controls, and surprisingly well done voice-over work during the game, Baseball Blast will definitely entertain young little leaguers.
