Title RBI 2 Baseball Publisher Domark Game Type Sport Players 1 or 2 HD Installable No Compatibility ECS Submission Chris Vella Profiled Reviewer Review Sometimes a game is so poor you have to wonder how it ever could have been released. This is one of those games. RBI 2 baseball tries to simulate the game of baseball but it's obvious to me that the programmers never played the game. There are so many things wrong with this game that I don't know where to start. I am going to assume that you know the basic idea of how to play baseball so I won't go into the rules of the game too much. In a nutshell this is a basic explanation of how to play. There are two teams, one plays the field (defense) and one is at bat (offence). The offensive team tries to score runs by hitting the baseball without having the defense throw them out. When three outs are made, the teams will switch offense and defence. The team with more runs after nine innings is the winner. There are nine players on each team and each one plays their specific position. In this game if you are on defense, you play the part of the pitcher and then the person closest to the ball. Every fielder should be able to run after and catch the ball. But not in this game. The 3rd baseman and 1st baseman can't run after and catch the ball. They just stay in one spot even if the ball is hit at them. How could the programmers not have realised this? Simple, They know NOTHING about the game! When pitching, you can always throw a strike or a ball if you want. Not realistic. When up at bat, its almost impossible to hit the ball because it comes in too fast and you can't tell weather its going to be a strike or a ball. Horrible programming. Now on to the graphics. HORRIBLE! what the hell were Domark thinking? The Sound is also terrible. The only half decent thing in the game is the animated scoreboard, Big deal! The game is controlled with the joystick and you can play either 1 or 2 players. Some features of the game of baseball were attempted to be implemented into this game. But SOME is the key word, Why not ALL or MOST? and what was implemented is TERRIBLE. I am in disbelief over how poorly the game actually plays. You try to play for about 5 minutes and then you want to throw the game disk into a wall. In conclusion, It's no secret that I hate this game. It's one of the worst games that I have ever played on the Amiga. To make matters worse, I have actually read reviews in European magazines giving this game a good review. Please stick to soccer and don't ever try to review a mainly American Sport game without some basic game knowledge. The Graphics SUCK, The Sounds SUCK, the playability REALLY SUCKS, this game SUCKS. Listen Domark, don't insult my intelligence with crap like this, I know you can do better. I actually had to try to play this game again to reconfirm my feelings on it, and I'm sorry to say I was reconfirmed in about 30 seconds. I then proceeded to remove the disk and mail it to my worst enemy, but then I thought even they don't deserve this. AVOID THIS GAME AT ALL COSTS. TRUST ME! PLEASE, TRUST ME! If you want to play baseball on the Amiga get the game TV SPORTS BASEBALL. It's a million times better then this piece of crap.
