As a Nickelodeon and baseball fan, I am impressed with this game! Parents, your kids will love this game, although you may find the commentators a little irritating!

This title has:

Too much consumerism
Easy to play/use

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

The concept behind Nicktoons MLB is intriguingly wacky. Can your favorite major leaguers strike out SpongeBob or score a home run off of Danny Planet? And it's admittedly fun to see these characters onscreen with the real-life players. It's a bit disappointing though to see that the cartoon guys aren't loaded up with over-the-top, unrealistic cartoon moves. They mostly just affect the way the ball looks when they touch it (like the Avatar: The Last Airbender characters leaving trails of fire or water behind a pitch).

The controls are a mixed bag on the Kinect version, with pitching feeling great (the angle and speed of your arm determines what kind of pitch you throw) and batting feeling glitchy and oversensitive at times (where almost any move you make is interpreted as a swing). The Wii offers controls that are more in keeping with other Wii baseball games.
