    Unfortunately, unless your console is manufactured by Sony, this game, published by Major League Baseball itself, is your sole option for an official baseball title. While I get the attempt to link to the classic 8-bit baseball titles of the NES era, a LOT is lost in the translation. The intent is to simplify the controls to only a couple of buttons, and automate a number of features, but the computer is not terribly intelligent when it comes to fielding. And for whatever reason, when you're pitching, computer hitters ALWAYS find the 1B-2B and SS-3B gaps for base hits. For kids to play together, it's a cheap option. But if you prefer a deeper simulation, go with MLB The Show on PS4. If you've got an Xbox One, pester Microsoft into reviving the High Heat Baseball license they bought years ago.

    Since it's the ONLY baseball game for the Xbox, it'll have to do. Easy to pick up and play, mastering it is another story however, due to the rudimentary instructions that you can access through the menu. No announcers, crowd reactions, etc., none of the bells and whistles that would add to the entertainment quotient nor ways to control pitches, batting and the like. But lacking all of that, you can play a complete game in a relatively short amount of time. Maybe someone will, in the future, make an excitement enhanced baseball game for the Xbox, until then.... this is what there is and u get what u pay for. (Fear not, Madden and FIFA's new iterations will be out before you know it!)

    Bad game all the way around . It's like Stone Age Atari games compared to today's standards. I was looking for a real baseball game on for the Xbox platform and this is all that's out there is this . Yes it does have real teams and players but that's it. Gameplay is terrible , hard to control the players, pitching and batting are very awkward . I know they all can't be PlayStation MLB the Show but come on somebody out there could at least try to put together a decent baseball game for Xbox.

    My son wanted a baseball game for the Xbox One and after doing some research, this is the only one available. I have had fun playing the game as well as my son. This is more of an arcade style of gameplay versus some of the more realistic baseball games from the past like the 2K sports baseball games we have played on the Xbox 360. It's still fun, and at a low price, it's worth buying if you're a fan of baseball and own an XBOX One.

    Xbox with mass hardware appeal should be able to partner with better sports game developers. This game is absolutely horrible and can't compete to the likes of MLB The Show PERIOD. I had some REWARDS available on my Best Buy account, so I thought what do I have to loose, my rewards points. If you're a longtime player of MLB THE SHOW, don't waste your money or rewards points on this weak game play product.

    Very basic and old school fun. Bought an extra copy for my son who lives in another state so we can play. Online game play is slow and lags. Don't have any problems with other games I own so I'm guessing it RBI baseball. A big plus about the game is it's cheap and fun for $19.99. Would recommend if your looking for a basic game. MLB the show is way better but you can't buy it for the Xbox One!

    Lots of Bad Reviews - Not Sure Why

    This game is nothing like the classic RBI Baseball for the NES. It is however, a ton of fun to play. For $15-20 this game is a bargain. Sure there are some glitches with outs being called safe and vice versa, but what do you want for $20??! The rosters are still current and it's a fun game for the younger kids who aren't quite ready for other MLB games.

    This game is fun to play and gives you the arcade feel that we all used to waste our money on. If you are a xbox one owner this is your only baseball game option. My advice get a ps4 and play the show if you looking for great game but if you are a ps4 gamer do not buy this game. If you just looking to play a little ball pick this up.
