  • Summary: Hammer Longballo and a friendly cast of semi-athletic baseball stars invite you to saddle up on the couch with friends for some relaxed solo or co-op play. Or some fierce, relationship-testing competition.

    Because really, Super Mega Baseball is the sort of fun, easy to pick up diversion that video game baseball was at the very beginning of its lifespan — and if it's as great as it is here, there's every reason to believe it can still fulfill that function.

    Super Mega Baseball is one of the best baseball games out at the moment. Sure it may not be a licensed game like The Show, but the gameplay is as good as the official MLB game.

    The thing is, the core game is so good that the lack of such things is far from a dealbreaker. I’d go as far as calling this a must-play for anyone even remotely interested in sports games. You won’t regret it.

    Super Mega Baseball should be your next purchase if you moderately enjoy baseball on any level. Although it doesn't have the bells and whistles you may expect from a recent sports title, you'll be playing for quite some time based on the strength of the core game alone, whether it's by yourself or with friends.

    Super Mega Baseball is one of the most enjoyable, satisfying games I’ve played in a long time.

    A blast to play in short bursts... The lackluster presentation, however, hinders the overall experience, making it difficult to play more than a few games per sitting.

    At its heart Super Mega Baseball feels like those old games I loved, I just wish they would have just focused on making the core game work and left out the additional systems, which not only don’t enhance the game but actively detract from it.

It has a cool arcade-y look, but there is a very solid baseball simulation when you get into actual game play. Perhaps most importantly to me, the game has a very wide difficulty range which can be set separately for each user. This has been fabulous because I can now play the game with or against my 9 year old son and 11 year old daughter and it is fair and balanced for all. Great job by the developers! Expand

    This game is brilliant i can't stop playing it.

    I was looking for a game similar to NHL hits, NBA street and NBA street Volume 2 but for baseball, While it may not be as deep as these games (no career mode) it is unbelievably fun. The pitching and batting mechanics are brilliant but the real winner is the ego mode. it is BRILLIANT. It gives the game depth, complexity and toughness. With a different ego setting every game will be different.

    The second best thing are the teams, they are hilarious. not only does each team have its own specialty (ie. hitting,power,defence pitching) but the players are unique (to a certain extent) and you can fully customize how they look if you arent impressed by Metalhead's creations. With each team having their own strenghts and weakenesses you can really empower them in season mode with coaches.

    The coaches are well thought out, you get new ones as you level through the season (these levels carry on to new seasons too!) which give you modifiers on your players. These modifiers change depending on what team you choose and you can't select all the coaches at one time as you are limited by your level (and new one keep appearing as you level up.) There is also an attraction rate, so you are doing well and not firing coaches before the contract expires you can get more and more to choose from.

    This game is brilliant, i can't stop playing it, it is 20$ on ps store and just came out with new diamonds in a dlc pack for free. Every PS deserves super mega baseball

SMB draws on nostalgic cartoon-like visuals while offering a fairly deep baseball sim. The pitcher-batter interface is very slick and offers plenty of challenge for new and experience gamers. Solid game... It will be fun to see more content added - the only complaint currently is a lack of stadiums (There's only 4)... Expand

I am a huge fan of the show, but it's nice to have a baseball game that is easy to pick up and play and not have to invest an hour into playing one game. I love mlb the show, but it's just sickening how big sites like IGN spent weeks covering that game, and they have yet to put up a review on this game and a lot of people are going to miss this and not get the chance to play one of the most fun and unique sports games to come out on the new systems.

For those that just want to sit down and enjoy a fun game of baseball, either casual or hardcore, you can't go wrong w/ this game. I think they did an excellent job w/ the difficulty setting, game play, graphics, and just the whole presentation of the game.

    It has the true spirit of an arcade game in that you accumulate points every game you play and you keep leveling up after achieving so many points, which can then be used to "boost" your players and improve your team throughout your season (which you can decide between playing short or longer seasons).

    Overall, just a fun game. And for $20, you can't hardly go wrong.

I was hoping beyond hope that it would've been my dream sports game, which would be a non-pro league licensed, somewhat cartoonish (cel shaded graphics), very stat intensive (individual and team), with adequately believable mechanics/A.I., adjustable difficulty sliders, and FULLY customizable players, teams, uniforms, and stadiums. But alas, this dream has not come true, and it likely never will. It would be WAY too awesome, which is why I know it will never exist.

    Anyhoo...

    Super Mega Baseball is not an abject failure, but it's barely more than a cell phone game. You cannot adjust the game's difficulty once you've begun a season, at least not that I'm aware of. You cannot adjust individual difficulty. In other words, you can't have hitting be set to one level, while pitching is set to something else, fielding set to another difficulty level, etc. etc. Because you can't adjust the difficulty level while in season, your stats get really unrealistic. I'm 20 games in and I still have players batting over .500 on my roster. The game mechanics are really wonky and not intuitive at all. The between-game interface is weird. The people in the game, both on the field and in the stands, look like 19th century grotesque caricatures straight out of a Lewis Carroll novel. Overall, thumbs down.
