Checking out on the latest tweaks done to the PC/desktop games, it emerges that the RBI Baseball 18 has had an addition of features. MLBAM has crafted a new version of the baseball game series. The version that has been released this year comes with a host of visual changes that look better and clearer to the eye. However, the question is whether the changes are sufficient to warrant a thumbs-up.
At $29.99 as the offer price at the vending outlets, at a lower price than the previous game cost, it is apparent that the game is gradually joining the premium class. To begin with, as mentioned earlier, the visual aspects and effects have been improved. The ballparks and the players are portrayed a little more clearly. As one plays the game, the players can be seen in crystal clear moving images; something that certainly adds to the fun and enjoyment in play mode. The visual improvements make players move closer to the game venue and reduce the notion of just being in a fantasy encounter. The players’ gear has also been enhanced in the new tweaks.
Play Mode Details
When playing, the Franchise mode within the game has been reset and now comes with a few more layers. Tracking of statistics is better. Users also access constant player updates; which help during playtime. While the RBI baseball is an arcade game it is a miniature replica of the real-life gaming action on the baseball field. Thus, an effort has been made to make it as real as it gets. There are suggestions that more tweaks need to be added to the player visuals. It is a great thing that the cartoon-like look of the players on the previous version of the game has been eliminated. It is notable that there have also been improvements in the way the ball shoots off the bat, although it could be further improved to eliminate the rare glitches. RBI is certainly gaining traction but there is a need to add some fundamentals such as commentary so that the game becomes a little livelier.
