Grand Slam was also simply known as The Show. It is a sports game for the personal computer that revolves around the game of baseball. When it arrived on the scene, it was supposed to be the next best thing since sliced bread, and in truth, it did offer some innovations to the world of video baseball.
Although it made a lot of promises, Grand Slam was a pretty routine baseball game. One thing that it did offer, which it took right out of the world of video golf, was the swing meter for batting.
This also corresponded with the pitch speed meter. Players were able to select their power level by hitting the right key strokes as a meter went up and down. It is common now, but it helped to make The Show a really big deal back then.
The graphics and audio are both very functional but nothing really stellar. Players have their core statistics available, but Grand Slam does not go too deeply into statistical variants. Basically, this game is just that…basic. Still, with its innovations, it is a piece of baseball and video game history, and it should definitely be owned
as a collector’s piece, if for no other reason. It certainly isn’t a bad game, by any means. It just could have been better.
