      better than rbi 17 in many ways

      Posted

      1. the music- the new game uses real songs in the menus and in between innings. not the same 1 song that the other game had. 2- the players faces now somewhat resemble the actual players. 3- home runs now have a running bases animation with music. if you hit a grand slam it actually says "grand slam". the old game didn't say when it was a grand slam. 4. graphics are improved and now there a real people sitting in the stands. 5. right handed and left handed pitching is very different now. on 17 the hand you pitched with didnt really matter. 6. addition of home run derby 7. fielding is much better and easier to track the ball. overall a better experience than 17 imo.

      I dont like the batter viewing angle in non HR derby games (the viewing angle is different/better in HR derby). Because of the angle, i find it difficult to tell what the pitch is and where the pitch is going. With no option to change viewing angles, i cant recommend this game. disclaimer: i just played a game or two on the switch screen and not on a larger screen... so it might be better if played on a larger screen? i dont know... i hated the viewing angle and game play so much i just stopped playing it.

      Of course this game is not even close to being as good as MLB The Show but, this game does look good in portable mode on the Nintendo Switch. I wish it had more game modes and better Home run derby. Cant select but a few players for HR Derby. Baseball game pace is fast without any flashy cutscenes a or replays. But good enough for on the Go experience while playing Franchise mode.

      This game is great. Having baseball on the go is a reason I bought this game. Never played the previous 2017 game but this one is action packed. Home run derby and continuous updated rosters is a plus. Definitely recommend.

      I am not usually into sports games but for the price this was well worth it. I only follow NY Mets Baseball and this game is really fun to play. Maybe The Mets Will Win A World Series In My Nintendo Switch.

      The controls are horrible, the graphics are like blobs, and should be sold for $5.99 otherwise don’t buy it.
