GREAT - Super Mega Baseball 3 retains the wonderful gameplay from the prior game and the bottom line is that it’s just plain fun to play.

However, if you already own Super Mega Baseball 2, the price of admission may be too steep for this sequel.
Super Mega Baseball 3 is an improvement over the previous game in pretty much every area. It looks fantastic and manages to appeal to both newcomers and seasoned pros alike. Customisation is at the heart of the game. From the difficulty all the way to the creation suite Metalhead Software give you the agency to play how you want. The result is a game that all sports fans, not just baseball enthusiasts, should check out.
Super Mega Baseball 3 is easily one of the most satisfying modern baseball games available. It’s not as flashy as bigger titles like The Show, but it more than makes up for it with fantastic gameplay and a surprising amount of depth. This is a must-play for baseball fans, regardless of how casual or hardcore they are.
When it comes to sports videogames, I’ve never liked the arcade-style ones with over the top gameplay and superhuman displays of strength. At first glance, that is exactly what the Super Mega Baseball franchise delivers, but once you start playing, you’ll see that it’s actually a deep baseball simulator with smooth gameplay and a metric ton of customization options. Super Mega Baseball 3 is better than its predecessors and they were a lot of fun. Despite the silly aesthetics, Super Mega Baseball 3 is not just a good baseball game, it’s my favorite baseball series going right now.
Super Mega Baseball 3 keeps the fun gameplay and adds a Franchise Mode and player traits for a winning display.
Super Mega Baseball 3 proves that arcade baseball can be authentic while also catering to casual fans of the sport. From its plentiful customization options and in-depth mechanics that you can either choose to master or not; this is truly a baseball game for everyone.
Super Mega Baseball has never been given the accolades it's deserved, but this is the year baseball fans will finally notice this all-star.
Franchise mode helps to extend that depth in creative, unique ways. Overall, Super Mega Baseball 3 is like if those old janky NES baseball games played as good as you wish they did when you were younger, while at the same time, standing respectably next to the greatest sports games of all time. After all, Super Mega Baseball 3 is the greatest baseball video game I have ever played.
Once again, Metalhead Software proves that you don’t need a major league license to make a great sports game
Super Mega Baseball 3 feels like the baseball games I used to love from a few generations ago. Liberated of the "depth" of modern sports games, there's an efficiency to the action that is appealing, and the gameplay modes that it does offer are all compelling.
