I'm not sure if it's unusual or not, but I'm a huge fan of video game sports games. From Pele's Soccer to a modern Madden game...I tend to really enjoy them quite a bit.
And so, here's my meager SMS collection so far. I recently got three sports games -- Great Baseball, Great Basketball, Great Football with the thought that if anyone would like them, it would be me.
But I've tried them...and they are HORRIBLE.
Great Baseball looks good graphics wise. i like the umpire speech. But the gameplay is just horribly slow. A full game takes forever. Can those outfielders move a little faster???
Great Basketball looks terrible and is terrible. The players are tiny, and their shots have no arc to them. Making a basket seems random. And so many foul calls that seem totally random. Blech.
Great football. This is probably the best in the lot. It looks and sounds great. Picking a play is kind of unique as it scrolls through all available plays, you're supposed to secretly push a button when the one you want is highlighted. The one player game is all offense with you down by 21 to start the game. The run game works well. But the passing game is horrid.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that if they had to put the word "Great" in the title, it probably wasn't that great.
