RBI Baseball 20 

 

Another year and another RBI Baseball video game. RBI Baseball 20 improves upon the past games in a great many ways. It still has room to grow. Even though MLB The Show 20 took some steps back it is still a better baseball experience than RBI Baseball 20. That gap is narrowing as RBI Baseball continues to get better.

The parks and atmosphere of RBI Baseball 20 feels like a baseball game. Maybe a minor league park in many aspects. The lack of entrance music, and other crowd interactivity hurts RBI Baseball 20. The game play in RBI Baseball 20 still lags greatly. More on that later. RBI Baseball 20 looks better and it sounds better. There are some frame rate drops on the Nintendo Switch.

We can play 162, 52, or 81 game seasons in RBI Baseball 20. We have modern controls or the classic controls. Modern is tricky to learn unless you want to fully charge and wait. I found it impossible to half charge ever. Fielders will sometimes throw to the wrong bag which will put a runner on base. We must anticipate the ball with our swings. So we are late, and then the ball goes into the dirt on a change up for a strike out. Expect to strike out a lot in RBI Baseball 20.

The modes in RBI Baseball 20 are Exhibition, Franchise, Post Season, Home Run Derby, Manage Rosters, Controls, Gameplay Options, and Settings & Extras. Assisted Fielding is helpful at times, and not so on others. NPC characters will dive for the ball on what should have been hits. Small ball is almost gone as we must rely on home runs. In fact most of my runs were on home runs.

Noah and I had a fun Twitch stream of RBI Baseball 20. The computer is hard in RBI Baseball 20 even on the easiest setting. Collision detection is questionable in RBI Baseball 20. Characters five feet away were somehow tagged out. I like the pitching camera. I hope next year improves in the gameplay.
