We have just posted our review of the XBox Live Downloadable Game (for 800 Microsoft points mind you) MLB Stickball.
"A few years ago, while browsing through clearance items at a sporting goods store, I came across a stickball set. It was a good price and it was decorated with my favorite teamís logo, so it was an easy purchase; I was excited by my seemingly thrifty and unique purchase."
Very good review man. I only played the demo, and I will say that I did think it was fun, and had to play it a few times until I "won". I agree w/ your overall sentiment towards the game. The most impressive thing to me about this game is the hit variety - it's great. Because there are target obsticles and the surrounding are so unique, you can really tell where the ball lands and how fast it's going and realize that you might nt see the same hit twice.
The game's really all about the hitting, but at least they made it extremely good for an xbla game.
