Super Mega Baseball 2
Top Critic Average
The improvements over the original make Super Mega Baseball 2 the best on-field baseball sim on PC.
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.
Don't let the lack of modes turn you away. Super Mega Baseball 2 nails the fundamentals of the sport
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.
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.

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.
As it stands right now, Super Mega Baseball 2 is now the top dog of baseball games on the PC.
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 is undoubtedly Xbox's best baseball game.
Overall, and despite a few relatively small annoyances throughout the game, Super Mega Baseball 2 provides an enjoyable for the entire family!
