Sports gamers 11 and older will probably want little to do with a game with such a childlike look and feel. They'll balk knowing there are more realistic baseball videogames available with far more depth and sophistication. But for families with young kids, Backyard Baseball 2010 is lots of fun and offers plenty of replay value in the multiple game modes and unlockabes.
Some touches like custom character and team creation (with created names announced during games), add to the fun. It would be nice, however, to see the graphics updated more and it's too bad no more than two players can compete; there are plenty of minigames that could easily be improved to accommodate more.
