The Video Game Critic
Not only is RBI Baseball 2 an enormous improvement over its predecessor, it's one of the best baseball games I've ever played! The players look fairly realistic this time around, and the pitchers look exceptionally good during their windups. The controls are superb. Players can dive for grounders and jump for line drives, and runners even slide head-first! You can select between two skills levels, turn off the music (thank you!), and the homerun frequency is reasonable. You get all the real major league teams and players. Bonus features include voice synthesis for umpires and - get this - instant replays! If there's one thing that annoyed me, it would be the excessive number of foul balls. Otherwise, RBI 2 is outstanding.
R.B.I. Baseball 2 is great because it has all of the rosters from 1989. The gameplay however is only middle of the pack on the NES. If you are a diehard RBI gamer or a diehard baseball fan this game is a must-have. Otherwise, just stick with Baseball Stars and the original R.B.I. Baseball.
