Microleague eschew action in favor of strategy for this licensed baseball game. The real-life teams and players are included, as well as classic teams from the past - lots of data disks were released featuring additional lineups. Each play is graphically shown, with a running commentary detailing how it unfolds.
A wide range of strategies are available. You can bring the stand-in players in, and instruct players as to how aggressively to play when opportunities arise, with 7 distinct batting strategies. When fielding you have options on field placement and bowling style - use the fastball and curveball wisely. Players will sometimes pick up injuries (the correct level of warming up can reduce this risk), or argue with the umpire over controversial decisions.
Micro League Baseball series are surprising little games for their time that sport graphics and gameplay improvement with each new version. The games offer a selection of history's most powerful teams and you can pit them against each other in league play. Each even has a stat compiler that allows you to keep records on each individual. I was impressed at the amount of strategy that can be used in each game. You can go head to head with another human or you can play the computer, decide which players are in the line up, what pitch to throw, how to swing, how to run the bases, how to position your fielders, etc.-- a baseball strategist's dream. With the fact that you can get team disks, the replay value is very high. They are games that belongs on every sports fan hard drive. I rate them a 4 out of 5.
