Baseball Simulator 1.000 plays like your typical crotch-itchin’, chaw-spittin’ hoot and holler.
You have your choice of four leagues – Atlantic, Northern, Ultra and Custom – with six teams available in each league (save for Custom, which you make yourself). Unless you like your league weak and inefficient, you’re picking the Ultra League and the teams therein. Every team in Ultra has special hitting and pitching powers. These powers are limited through the use of points, but the extra advantage makes picking from the Ultra League a no-brainer.
Playing a season is the way to go if you have a friend at your disposal (you can play up to 165 games in a row if you’re that bored and crazy!), but if not, an exhibition game will be all that you’ll need. Unlike Baseball, your characters are far more competent in the art of catching and throwing. Also, you can switch players in-game if need be. Your pitcher will probably be the only player that gets tired; after a couple innings, they start to sweat somethin’ fierce.
Baseball Simulator 1.000 is well-executed and completely satisfying, like Grandma’s old-fashioned apple pie or some other beaten-to-death cliché.
