CD-ROM Today, April 1996

"In its mechanics and fine control of game parameters, Hardball 5 is similar to Stormfront's Tony LaRussa Baseball 3. But Hardball has a more natural feel when hitting, pitching, and fielding, as well as the smoothest, most lifelike animation and graphics of any baseball game on the market. Like its predecessors, it carries the MLBPA license, and statistics are complete through the '95 season."

"Nearly every detail of play can be adjusted to your liking. In fact, Hardball 5 is the front-runner for arcade-action fans. I've never seen a baseball sim so intuitive; I was up and playing instantly."

Computer Gaming World, January 1996

"MindSpan (the designer) has created a cartoon-like baseball world with SVGA graphics that surpass any other game on the market. The detail in the pitching interface far surpasses any other game on the market, and should serve as a model for any game developer."

"It has a lot going in its favor. Smooth animation, great graphics and a comfortable, albeit out of perspective, playing field. Popular sports-caster Al Michaels is the featured announcer, and delivers solid play-by-play commentary. And the pitching interface is simply beautiful."

"One nice improvement is that this version offers a much improved interface for presenting statistics - one that can be customized to feature the stats most interesting to you."
