RBI 18 Baseball 

 

This year the RBI Baseball video game takes some strides to improve. There is still much work to be done to be a true competition to MLB The Show. I like parts of RBI 18 Baseball, and there are sections that annoy me deeply. I will get into those in this very review. Hopefully you saw the game Paul and Peter played. They work really hard to bring all kinds of cool sports videos to your attention.

The modes in RBI 18 Baseball are Exhibition Match, New Franchise, Continue Franchise, Online Multiplayer, New Post Season, Continue Post Season, Home Run Derby, Favorite Team, Manage Rosters, Controls, Settings, and Playball Program. The Home Run Derby is the coolest upgrade in my personal opinion. There is certainly enough content to keep family sports gamers busy.

RBI 18 Baseball is a bit on the difficult side in my opinion. The pitchers can do all kinds of ball movement with the ball still in the air. The batter can be moved around in the box but that is not always helpful. Even on the easiest setting it can be difficult to win games in RBI 18 Baseball. I struggled playing RBI 18 Baseball a lot. Others here at Family Friendly Gaming did as well.

RBI 18 Baseball has long loading, a massive update file, and loading between each half inning. I did not find a way to skip the home run celebrations. Which was annoying to see the computer knock it over the wall over and over again. The intro to RBI 18 Baseball is pretty cool. The graphics and the game looks better. Hitting is partial anticipation. Which is annoying when the ball goes into the dirt before the plate. I never could see that coming.

The catch animations seemed off to me at times. Those outfielders can zip the ball into the infield very quickly in RBI 18 Baseball. This franchise is definitely going the right direction. Time will tell if it will ever improve enough to be viable competition for MLB The Show. I had some fun playing this baseball video game. I hope the PR and Marketing people stop failing Family Friendly Gaming next year.
