1UP Reviews MLB 2K8 Fantasy All-Stars

1UP writes: "Fantasy All-Stars' handful of goofball power-ups mark it as not-quite-a-simulation: You'll find a ball that clucks like a chicken and hurries away from fielders, players frozen in a block of ice after making contact, and a wall that shoots out of the ground to knock down a sure home run. Better yet, all of the power-ups -- usable before you throw a pitch, swing at one, or while the ball's in play -- come with harebrained sound effects that'll get a giggle out of slapstick-lovers.

The power-ups are matched by an outrageous art style that features stick-thin slap hitters and meaty-topped sluggers with chopsticks for legs. The player models work great, but the zany fields -- set everywhere but a baseball stadium -- don't work nearly as well. Some, including Area 51 and Moonbase, are downright dark, making it tough to see the pitched ball".

The story is too old to be commented.

Are the graphics on the DS really that bad?
