The epic and exciting Baseball simulation is back with Super Mega Baseball 2. This entry aims to completely revamp the experience and does so in an almost perfect way. While it's stacked with new features, the core of the game is the option to play everything in multiplayer. Enjoy local multiplayer for up to four players or do so online. Play in multiple combinations of players locally or online across all of the game modes.
It's really accessible to play with others and that really helps amplify the fun. Game mode wise there's the traditional exhibition, there's multiple seasons you can do and competitive online multiplayer. If you want things to be more personal there are too many options for customization. Tweak the patterns, alter the logo and build whatever sort of team you'd like even altering the players in similar ways. There are so many options for how you enjoy the Baseball here and it's a blast to play. If you liked the original, this is a massive step forward.
They've completely revamped the look and style of the game retaining their unique almost cartoon style yet working more towards realism. The models look great, the animations are smooth and there's some fun for tweaking this aspect. The stadiums look great, they feel alive and distinct. I would have liked the grass and dirt textures to be a bit better however. General Baseball gameplay feels perfect whether you're swinging or pitching. It's easy to perform either, yet the smaller naunces make it something to master. The redone difficulty options are perfect with a simple slider to choose how hard of a challenge you'll face. The AI is useful during play, though small realistic mishaps can happen.
Super Mega Baseball 2 delivers the ultimate Baseball experience that's fun, easily accessible and challenging to master as you discover the smaller nuances. It plays well, looks smooth and carries many excellent animations. The customization elements are amazing to say the least, few games can challenge them. There are many modes to play and all of them have some sort of multiplayer option so you don't have to play alone. Play them locally or online for up to four players and if you have to play against the AI there's a good difficulty tweaker. It may not aim for perfect realism, yet leans into it well enough to make this a stellar emulation of the sport. It's a lot of fun and well worth it.
