Baseball Heroes (Atari Lynx review)

Developer: Atari Corporation
Publisher: Atari Corporation
Released: 1992

Baseball Heroes is a sports game that's exclusive to the Atari Lynx handheld.

+ Four different modes are available, and playing the Home Run Derby competitively with two-players is a neat feature.

+ Includes a few advanced fielding mechanics, as you have the option to jump or dive for a ball that's hit into the outfield.

+ Animation is impressively smooth and includes two camera angles depending on whether you're pitching or batting.

- Gameplay is incredibly slow and it takes an age for your bat to swing around, causing you to anticipate rather than react.

- Tracking down a fly ball in the outfield is comically bad, as there's no way to judge depth perception for its trajectory.

- Only four fictional teams to choose from and no difficulty options to ease you in against the brutal CPU opponents.
