[PlayStation 4] Super Mega Baseball 2 Review
- On May 24, 2018
Sequel Super Mega Baseball 2 is ready for you on PlayStation 4. If you’re looking for an arcade-style game, then be sure to check out our Super Mega Baseball 2 review!
As you get started, the game’s tutorials will walk you through the basic gameplay mechanics as you take on your first match. The description for each one is very clear and easy to follow, and due to the arcade nature of this baseball game, I don’t think you’ll have any trouble following along.
The level of accessibility is pretty good, but the difficulty levels might feel a bit unbalanced at first. For example, if you set the Ego Level to 0 (really easy), the AI can still perform better than you and is still as likely to hit more home runs than you, which is weird, but at least it is definitely easier than if you select a higher difficulty level. If you try to play on, for example, an Ego setting of 40, you will notice a considerable change in how the opposing AI team behaves. The maximum Ego setting is 100, and if you select that one, you will need to give it your all and pretty much play a perfect game.
Super Mega Baseball 2 different game modes. Exhibition is the perfect choice for those new to arcade-style baseball games since you can pick a team, the number of innings, and the Ego level (difficulty) – you can practice your skill and improve as you play short or long matches. You also have Pennant mode which is a bit like the playoffs/knockout stages of the sport. I was sort of expecting this one to have a home run derby mode since it’s very much an arcade game, but it’s not something that was included in this one.
Multiplayer is available and can be accessed from the main menu, and you can play in local or online multiplayer. What’s great is that you have the option of cross-play against players on PC, which means that there’s a bigger player base for you to take on. The local multiplayer is very fun since it reminded me of playing baseball games back in the day with some fun multiplayer couch co-op sessions. I may or may not have rounded up some friends with some snacks and beers to make the most of the local multiplayer.
Super Mega Baseball 2 is a very fun game with colorful cartoon visuals that will keep you busy for many hours thanks to its single player with 100 levels of AI difficulty, and it’s online and couch co-op options. So if you’re looking for an arcade-style baseball game on PlayStation 4, then this one is definitely worth a look!
