The Cages: Pro Style Batting Practice :: Wii Game Review

The Cages: Pro Style Batting Practice :: Wii Game Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Oct 27, 2010
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Sure you already have Wii Sports, but The Cages adds in Wii MotionPlus! Check out our review to see if thats all you need to really hit one out of the park!

The Cages: Pro Style Batting Practice is not a full baseball experience. There are teams, coaches, or umps. Just you and a pitching machine that can fire different pitches at you, allowing you to practice the timing and accuracy of your swings.


Man vs. Machine

The pitching machine can throw 19 different pitches at you, including fast balls, 12-6 curve, reverse sliders, and even the infamous knuckleball. Underhand throws are also available. As you get used to the pitches, you will unlock more until all 19 are available for every mode in the game.


Aside from swinging at pitches from the machine in training mode, there are various challenges that you can try, like hitting the ball at targets. It is basically a bunch of mini-games that involves batting.


In order to bat, you hold the Wiimote like a bat and hold down the B button. While still holding down the B button, swing the Wiimote at the right time in order to connect with the ball. Don't let the Wiimote slip out of your hand! With just the Wiimote, the game is all about timing. However, with the MotionPlus add-on, the game becomes more realistic and harder. You will need a full swing and will have to watch the height and power of your swings. With MotionPlus, you might actually improve your real-life batting skills too!


Fouls and Errors

Overall, the game is nothing to brag about. The graphics and music is boring, as is facing off a pitching machine instead of a famous pitcher. It's a bit annoying that you have to unlock most of the game, including the different pitches.


Multiplayer mode is ok, it won't make a party unless you bring your baseball team home. In the end, this game is really only for big baseball enthusiasts who don't want to make the trip to real batting cages.
