Baseball Superstars II is a treat for any arcade baseball fan. A full baseball experience, Baseball Superstars II simplifies the technical aspects of the US pastime and streamlines the gameplay.
With a recognizable Gamevil visual style, the cartoon style works perfectly. Baseball Superstars II has some of the fastest animation for pitching and swinging. Once the ball is hit, the camera pans to an overhead view where Baseball Superstars II controls the players until the ball is caught.
Most baseball titles require many inputs to throw to the different bases, but Baseball Superstars II only requires players to touch the individual bases. This style of gameplay makes Baseball Superstars II a much more fun experience than trudging through the nine innings.
Baseball Superstars II is surprising because it contains so much content beyond a simple exhibition match. Seven different modes: Exhibition, My League, Season, Homerun Race, Tournament, Mission, and Match Mode are all included. In addition, there are customizable user-created skills for pitching and batting. Baseball Superstars II also includes RPG elements where players can level their characters to become better baseball players.
It is a surprisingly deep experience beyond the direct baseball gameplay and continues to improve with more time dedicated in playing.
Gamevil’s Baseball Superstars II is the perfect combination for casual baseball fans and the hardcore players who customize everything.
