Kind of Fun

I was a bit concerned when I saw all the bad reviews, but for $6.99 I rolled the. And you know what? The game isn’t that bad. Sure, there’s some weird looking physics that occurs with the ball and the players, and I sometimes need to restart my device in order to keep the game from crashing when I open it, but once going, the game is kind of fun, you can save in the middle of games so you can get in a few innings here and there without committing to a full game, and the representations of each stadium, at least the ones I’ve seen so far, are pretty cool. All in all, not bad for $6.99. If you’re not expecting too much, don’t worry about the bad reviews and take a shot.

Still incredibly glitchy

In case you were a hold out and wanted to wait for the game to get polished and see how it is don’t hold your breath. I still can’t go more than 2 games without a game breaking bug like runners failing to turn while running the bases and all being called out or an outfielder missing the ball and then just looking at it while unable to pick it up etc. Or the game crashing after an out when you’re pitching and being unable to continue the game and simply having to restart. When you can actually play the game it’s pretty good other than not being able to use Shohei Ohtani as a pitcher. It’s not even a choice between pitcher or hitter. He is only a DH period which is a glaring error in and of itself. But the frequency of bugs is still alarming and offputting. Roster updates are incredibly infrequent and if your team calls someone up from the minors you will not even find them in your reserves until they eventually get around to a roster update. I’ve played countless free baseball games with much better polish and roster options than this one. In my opinion you’d be better off playing one of those than wasting your money on a barely updated, same as rbi 20, incredibly glitchy crapfest.

My fielders can’t throw the ball after fielding. Just downloaded this

Glitch ?
Update….. May 3rd, still can’t play defense while having it on assisted fielding. They replied to me “ it’s fixed” but it isn’t . And now after making a few updates to current players on my roster in franchise mode it’s glitched! When trying to choose my pitcher and opponent’s pitchers screen before the game doesn’t have their team at all. It has my starting pitcher and then it’s a blank box where pitchers should be and title of it says rotation and I can switch it to rotation.
I think a great feature should be added in the [game options section ] where it could run a quick {clear cache } or something or reboot during a game so it’d save data and Probably have it available on all the other screens too while choosing what you’re currently doing.
I like playing classic mode too myself and being able to stack your team with legends when you go to add free agents. Then play franchise mode and win it all.. please app developers go through quick and make these updates.
And GO Atlanta Braves ! Lol play ball ⚾️
