Little League World Series 2010
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Little League World Series 2010 is a wholesome and sweet-hearted, but still thoroughly fun and enjoyable baseball game. Kids can edit their own teams and uniforms, and teams consist of both boys and girls. There's a lot of focus on teamwork and sportsmanship, but each team does have a "star player" with a special skill. If kids are having any trouble playing, they should definitely go through the in-game training regimen (tutorials), which should help immensely.
I waited so long and I am so dissappointed

What’s It About?
LITTLE LEAGE WORLD SERIES 2010 is a vibrant, cartoonlike baseball game that simulates a Little League season all the way up to the world series. And they do mean \"world\" series, as you can choose teams from all over the globe. In addition to regular baseball games, you can also engage in a slew of multiplayer mini-games that range from home run derbies to a dunk tank that dares you to sink your costumed mascot.
Is It Any Good?
If the colorful, cartoonish characters of Little Leage World Series 2010 make it seem like a kids' game, that's because it is. But family-friendliness does not mean it's a dumbed-down or lesser baseball game in any way. You've still got several pitching styles to use, a precise batting system, lots of managerial control over your team, etc. But you've also got a ton of fun stuff, like trivia about the players that flashes as they go up to bat ("Favorite food: Sweet potatoes," or "Favorite movie: Enchanted") and a costumed mascot dances between innings.
Playing well earns you power-up cards, which you can pull out to improve you hitting, batting, or fielding at a crucial moment. This system allows you to keep powering up the stats of your team members, guiding them all along through the season, and actually serves to create an emotional connection between you and the on-screen players. While it may not have diving slides or big-name hitters, this is still a seriously fun baseball game.
Online interaction: The game's only online components are leaderboards which list the best scores of players worldwide.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about the kinds of sports and athletics they like to get involved in off-line. Does playing a sports game like this inspire you to go out and play a sport in real life? Or does a video game that celebrates physical activity inherently send a mixed message.
The teams in this game are of mixed genders. How do you feel about playing on a sports team with members of the opposite sex?
