North America Retail Box ArtUnlike American Football, baseball has never taken off in the UK games market. Perhaps it's this country's obsession with cricket, but the game continues to be a mystery to many here. Microsoft's latest offering attempts to rectify this with Baseball 2001--a strategy game that challenges the gamer to master Major League Baseball.Even though the game is geared towards a US audience, it is an impressive package. Gamers unfamiliar with the game may find the reams of statistics and unknown players difficult, but the game itself offers top-quality entertainment.Installation is quick and easy, as it generally is with Microsoft products, and the graphics are excellent, taking in major US baseball arenas such as Pacific Bell Park, Comerica Park and Miller Park. The atmosphere of a packed house makes for an exciting experience. Baseball may not be as subtle and intricate as cricket, but Baseball 2001 may prompt the gamer to take interest in the game. --Paul Munford
