Super Mega Baseball
Top Critic Average
Super Mega Baseball is an enjoyable throwback to a time when sports games were for everyone rather than just enthusiasts.
Super Mega Baseball has unseated The Bigs as my favourite baseball game of all time.
And then there's that one special audio cue: pok! You know that sound. You know it! It's the rounded, punchy, friendly smack of a bat connecting with a ball that was already doing around 90. Close your eyes and you can see the aftermath: the heads tilted skyward, the arms dropping to the side. No need to chase after that one. Home run.
Super Mega Baseball is one of the best baseball games out at the moment. Sure it may not be a licensed game like The Show, but the gameplay is as good as the official MLB game. There's a surprising amount of depth within this game, allowing players to build a team how they wish be it focusing on being strong in bat, or having a strong fielding selection. The game's Ego system makes it approachable for all players, and the visual style itself is really appealing. The lack of online is a mark against an otherwise fantastic baseball game.
The lack of any true tutorial system has truly done the game a disservice
Actually, screw(ball) it. Baseball is cricket's sexier, more confident, and more exciting older cousin, and is better in every way.
A simple yet incredibly enjoyable Baseball game that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Super Mega Baseball should be your next purchase if you moderately enjoy baseball on any level. Although it doesn't have the bells and whistles you may expect from a recent sports title, you'll be playing for quite some time based on the strength of the core game alone, whether it's by yourself or with friends.
Super Mega Baseball is one of the most enjoyable, satisfying games I've played in a long time. Sometimes, we get so caught up with the necessity for realism and authenticity, so as to show off the power of our fancy new hardware, that we forget a video game truism: A game doesn't have to be realistic to be fun.
You don't have to be an '80s kid or even a baseball fan to enjoy Super Mega Baseball.
