R.B.I. 16 isn’t the baseball game XB1 owners have been yearning for since launch. It’s also not any competition for MLB The Show 16. Then again, it doesn’t set out to be either of those things. The aim was to create a baseball game that had a pick-up-and-play quality with a splash of real-life MLB style. While it accomplishes those goals in some areas, the game just isn’t all that fun to play—at least not as a console title.

While its competitor MLB: The Show swings for the fences, R.B.I. Baseball 16 is happy to bunt this year round – and that's okay. The controls are easy to pick up, the games are short and sweet, and the simplicity of it all is what makes this year's edition appealing to casuals. Still, its lack of innovation and modes mean that the title gets to second base – but not much further.

For what it is, a throwback baseball game, "RBI Baseball 16" is playable and can be, with the right people, enjoyable. But with a lack of overt sexiness and bells and whistles, hardcore baseball fans will obviously look to The Show for a complete next-gen offering.

Almost a carbon copy of last year's release, R.B.I. Baseball 16 is a simplistic and dull looking take on America's pastime. While Xbox gamers are kind of screwed, there are simply too many options on the PS4 to make this one worth your time.
