One simple change makes this a huge improvement over Power Pros 4: when the ball is pitched, a target appears on screen for you to aim at. It still needs incredibly quick reflexes, but you now have a chance of hitting the ball. The computer is still completely perfect, though, catching pretty much everything you hit while they always hit a large gap between your players.
Another new feature is the scenario mode, which gives you a bunch of in-progress games and you need to try and win from that position. It’s very similar to the scenario mode from International Superstar Soccer.
The RPG mode also returns, but there’s just an immense amount of text involved in it, so it’s difficult to keep track of what is going on.
Interestingly, there’s still no N64 baseball game that has released in the USA.
Although the text remained a mystery, we soon formed a bond with our adopted baseball kids. When the one who wears too much mascara and the twins with the inflatable heads were missing, presumed electrocuted, it felt like a beloved Tamagotchi had expired on us.Martin Kitts, N64 Magazine #17
Remake or Remaster?
I would like to see an English version of one of the RPGs in these games.
