This game is basically just a pitching and batting arcade sim. It’s not real baseball. The announcer is extremely annoying and all together this seems like a cheap game made with very limited development time. Not being able to field the ball and having a random outcome (although I haven’t seen many repeat scenarios) makes this game very boring. The outfield and anything in the background has a faded effect which seems cheap.. our phones are powerful enough to process richer graphics/effects. The different stadiums and teams are nice though. For $5/month I’d expect a more premium title, especially from Gameloft. Apple Arcade is slowly becoming a premium subscription service with nothing but shovel ware. When I saw a baseball game from Gameloft I got excited! What happened to you guys? You used to make the best games! This game could have easily came out on the hardware Apple was selling 5-6 years ago. With the majority of iPhone users on the most powerful smartphones available games like this look and play like old games. Sad.
I love this game and the play style. My only problem is you need to fix the rules of the game. For example if there are two outs and a runner on third, a pop fly is hit and the ball is caught, the runner on third does not get to score. However I just won a game with this exact setup and the game counted the run scored. Also you should not be allowed to change pitchers in the middle of an at bat. If the pitcher is tired you should only allow substitutions before the next batter. By allowing a change any time you can have a pitcher get a batter to two strikes, then bring in a new pitcher with a totally different curve ball and throw off the batter for the last strike. Aside from the rule problems, I think you should add a game mechanic where you can tell your runners to stop running after the ball is hit, or keep running and try to get the extra base. It seems like a simple thing to add. Often times there is a runner on third with no outs, and a long pop fly to the wall is hit, and caught. In regular baseball, the runner on third would tag up and score a run easily. In this game the runner stays there and never tries to tag up at all, regardless how fast they are. If those issues got fixed I would give this game 5 stars.
Forewarning to anyone just starting this game: it’s really not going to be fun for you for quite sometime. The defense is atrocious. Don’t even worry about training your batters, focus on the defense because the developers apparently stick you with guys that are just learning how to open and close a mitt, while the AI is making diving/leaping catches all over the outfield. Unfortunately it doesn’t get much better even when you spend the time to earn the training/train them. I love how they say it’s “based on real situations” let me tell you this, there aren’t FIVE YEAR OLD KIDS dropping a ball at short stop after standing under it completely still for 5 seconds let alone guys in the farm system. They for sure aren’t putting anyone in the outfield that does the same thing either. It also ends up not mattering how much you train the fielders because the AI will ALWAYS find a way to barely make contact with a ball, and hit it off the end of the bat, just enough to drop it perfectly into the outfield. Every single time. Stop preaching how real this game is, fix the Texas Leagur bug that is absolutely ridiculous. I keep trying to play through it but don’t play this game if you have any hopes of having fun right off the bat because the developers have made that absolutely impossible. Nice work guys, took me about 11 hours to not want to play anymore
The game play is nice and smooth and not having to pay for upgrades to win is nice with today’s games that require it. My only issue is online game play and the connection problems with it. Out of 10-15 online games against opponents I’ve played, only 2-3 I’ve been able to complete with no issue. I see the WiFi signal pop up from time to time but there is no description to why or what it means ie; color from yellow or red. Can only assume it’s some sort of connectivity issue that is relayed, but is it to the server, is it me, is it the opponent?.... I have a fairly decent internal network setup and during this connection issue times, pulling up Speedtest, network utility programs and I am not seeing a issue on my side.
This game can be so much better than it is currently, though they’ve gotten better from their last iteration. Frustrations come from the fact that well connected balls are consistently short of being home runs, hitting the top of the wall. The wall height doesn’t change that fact, it’s obviously a bug where the fly ball is pre programmed to hit the top of the wall. There are a lot of instances where plays just appear pre programmed for a certain outcome irregardless of player timing. Fix the hitting. Center of the strike zone pitches that are well hit should be home runs and not hit the walls. Also allow to adjust the lineups. This is a response to the comment below from developer. Home run misses happen to all player star levels, even when the sweet spot is hit. One of the players who has 5 stars power and 4 star contact (named Choi) has had his last 5 hits caught by the out fielder jumping over the wall! In different stadiums. Coincidence? I think not. A bug? Most definitely yes. Any time the announcer asks the question like; “does it have enough?”, “will it make it?” Or the pitcher is sweating bullets right now, the b-ball is never hit for a home run. If it’s realistic shouldn’t the outcome be more random where some of the above scenarios result in the ball actually making it over the wall?
