Fix 64-bit trajectory calculations (improves AI fielding routes and some other oddities).
Ratings and Reviews
Good game with room for improvement.
Considering this game is free, I give it 4 stars. Simple mechanics, just enough pitching and hitting control that it's not an arcade game, full stats, real rosters. It needs some improvement in the AI, sometimes the infielders take horrible routes to the ball. It has occasional fielding errors, needs to add throwing errors once in a while. Also needs to allow substitutions when you're on defense, as it is you can only pinch hit or bring in a relief pitcher, there's no way to make defensive substitutions. With a few small improvements this could be a great game.
Just like the NES game
The gameplay here is true to the original games on NES. The biggest differences are the updated rosters and improved graphics.
One thing that would be the icing on the cake would be the ability to play with legendary players (Dennis Eckersley with the sidearm on the A's; the Bash Brothers, '92 Blue Jays, Mark Grace, etc.). Atari RBI Baseball did this in the past where you could play as the team that won each division from the past 4 years or so, and you could trade with those teams to make somewhat of a dynasty roster. I understand that there are limitations because of how much memory this game takes up already, but such features are really all that is lacking from the current game.
I bought this game when it first came out hoping that I'd find the first good-quality MLB baseball game for my iPad. I've given it time since to receive updates and improve gameplay but it hasn't shown major improvement to me. The most disappointing glitch is after I go to another app and leave RBI 15 in the background of multitasking, the game either restarts , deleting my game data (regardless of if I saved or paused) or it actually saves - but when I return the computer recognizes me as the computer team instead of the team I was playing on as team 1. I really hope that either an update comes out FINALLY fixing all the issues or that RBI 16 has SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT otherwise, I want my money back AND I won't pay for another version of the same glitchy game!
