Super Mega Baseball 2 feels like a true sequel: same cast of heroes and villains (lookin' at you, Andre Candela), some new threats and interlopers, and a new journey to enjoy.
Whether you want to play single games against friends, compete in online leagues, or sit back and binge a season by yourself offline, Super Mega Baseball 2 delivers in spades. This is a Triple Crown-winning batter, a multiple Cy Young-winning pitcher, and a first-ballot Hall of Famer all wrapped into one. This is the greatest baseball game I have ever played.
It's fun and accessible enough that anyone can just pick it up and enjoy it while deep enough to keep even the biggest baseball purist entertained. When it's all said and done, Super Mega Baseball 2 could go down as the best baseball title of this generation of gaming.
Although not quite on par with an MLB, Super Mega Baseball 2 is a great entry for its price, offer-ing enough simplicity in gameplay to be enjoyable to practically anyone.
I really enjoyed my time with Super Mega Baseball 2. It's a fun arcade-style baseball game that does away with any type of sim aspect you might find in games like MLB: The Show, to focus on what really matters at the end: gameplay. If you're a fan of arcade baseball games then you should definitely check this one.
Super Mega Baseball 2 comes in swinging at the sport of baseball against the likes of MLB The Show. While not a huge baseball game fan myself, it offers a very welcoming hand into the game to get started as well as offering something for avid fans of the sport.
While Zelda and Mario rightfully sell Switches all on their own, for baseball fans, Super Mega Baseball 2 is a supreme mix of arcade and sim, and makes for an understated killer app for Nintendo's console.
Inviting to newcomers yet challenging for experienced players the "Super Mega Baseball" series has rounded into form with the sequel's more complete feature set. Despite not having MLB behind it "Super Mega Baseball 2" could be considered the best baseball game of 2018.
EXCELLENT - Super Mega Baseball 2 has arrived on the Switch and it was totally worth the wait. It’s the best baseball game on the system, and being able to begin a season on my TV and then take it with me on the go is something I dreamed of years ago when playing RBI Baseball on the NES.
With cartoon visuals and a true simulation gameplay, Super Mega Baseball 2 is one of the best sports games released in the last few years that, even with some issues and a few game modes, does the most important: being fun.

While it's not a full-fledged AAA title, SMB 2 blurs the lines with its fantastic gameplay and mode depth. MLB The Show fans aren't likely to put their game down to play SMB 2, but it could be a fun alternative. XB1 fans don't have access to The Show, so without a doubt, SMB 2 is easily the best baseball game available on that console.
A great addition to the series, a solid amount of fun packaged with a nice simulation of the game of baseball. The revamped graphics and new online play make this a worthy buy.
Super Mega Baseball 2 is a very fun game with colorful cartoon visuals that will keep you busy for many hours thanks to its single player with 100 levels of AI difficulty, and it's online and couch co-op options. So if you're looking for an arcade-style baseball game on PlayStation 4, then this one is definitely worth a look!
All in all Metalhead Software Inc. hit another one out of the park with Super Mega Baseball 2. The gameplay is fluid and fun for all ages. Tie this in with the online multiplayer feature that is offered and you will have fun for hours. You don't need to be the best-skilled game player to play this game which gives it a big positive note for any players. Super Mega Baseball 2 is now available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam for the low price of 29.99 USD.
Overall, Super Mega Baseball 2 is a great package–there is a ton of depth, plenty of customization options for players, teams, and leagues, and online multiplayer. If you can get around the art-style, the poor soundtrack and umpire sound effects, the game is really a ton of fun. If you're a baseball fan, it's definitely worth checking out and being able to play on-the-go makes this the definitive version of the game.
Super Mega Baseball 2 is a larger-than-life arcade sports title that will appeal to casual fans and baseball buffs alike. The game has a couple of graphics-related niggles, but it's an exciting PC sports title.
As far as local multiplayer games go on the current consoles, Super Mega Baseball 2 is a great option. If you've got Xbox Live Gold, then you can grab the game for free as part of the May lineup. Even if you're not a huge fan of the sport, it's well worth checking out.
If you’re in the market for a Baseball game, or a new sports game at all, you could do a whole lot worse than Super Mega Baseball 2. If you’re a Baseball fan at all and you’ve dreamed of starting up your own team and taking on the world, you’re not going to find a package more enjoyable than this.
Super Mega Baseball 2 pretty much fixes everything I didn't like about modern baseball games. I believe even die-hard fans of baseball will still find much to love in this game, as it's clear that the developer loves baseball as much as any fan.
I was very pleased with the simplistic, fun-to-play nature of Super Mega Baseball 2. The game plays very well with only a few shortcomings and does so for a small amount of bucks. You will not see Mike Trout hitting a home run, but you can have Tony Stark stealing home.
Metalhead is back with another helping of the Super Mega Baseball franchise, so we took Super Mega Baseball 2 out to the ballpark to see what it is all about. Simply put, it’s a great follow up to the original that added in a few requested features from that title, so if you enjoyed the original, you’ll appreciate the sequel.
Super Mega Baseball 2 brings out the best in what baseball games have to offer. An over-the-top, fun sports title that focuses on entertaining rather than realism, this is one is definitely worth checking out.
Super Mega Baseball 2 is a grounded baseball simulation wrapped in an arcade-style look and feel. An accurate physics engine generates realistic hits, and it keeps stats and models fatigue and morale in interesting ways. This realism is betrayed by a few control issues that affect the timing when batting and an AI that doesn't always behave as you'd expect. However, the unique Ego system allows you to tweak the difficulty of batting and fielding individually until you find the perfect challenge. And while it lacks the MLB license, you could use the accessible customization tools to recreate the entire MLB if you wanted to.
Super Mega Baseball 2 hides a great game behind this cartoonish style. Easy at the beginning, but its mechanics make this a game that is very difficult to master. This is an amazing surprise for baseball lovers and a great chance for those who don't know much about the genre.

On the surface, Super Mega Baseball 2 looks like a pretty face that lacks the substance necessary to have any sort of staying power. On closer examination, however, the depth of the mechanics provide a far more gratifying gameplay than would be expected. Slap an amusing layer of over-the-top animations on top of a roster of cartoonishly disarming characters, and the result is glorious throwback to the yesteryear of sports gaming. Being a filthy casual has never been so appealing.
Super Mega Baseball 2 brings a great amount of arcade fun to this historical sport. With great mechanics and pick up and play gameplay, the game keeps you entertained and engaged. Since there it is not an MLB game you can't use real players or teams, but that doesn't stop the game from holding up as a respectable title.
Super Mega Baseball 2 looks like a straightforward arcade game and it can be if you want it to be – but there's a surprising amount of depth to this colourful sequel that will keep you coming back. The game's vibrant presentation and frenetic flow set it apart from MLB The Show, and its raft of customisation options mean that you can tailor it to your tastes. Some cumbersome controls can grate, but if you're looking for a baseball game a little less serious than Sony's, then this is a great alternative.
Super Mega Baseball 2 improves and polishes an already fun arcade game that any baseball fan should consider at the price of $29.99 (it's even free on Xbox One if you have a Gold subscription).
