Personally I love this game. Agent J loves this game. You'll love this game. Oh just go buy it, it's probably cheap as well. Heck I saw 2 copies at the flea market today alone!
Game Freaks 365
Minor gripes aside (this is an NES game, afterall), these small complaints do not mean that RBI Baseball is not a good game. The game's gameplay is the key; RBI Baseball packs a whole bunch of quality fun in one package. Tengen released one of the best baseball games of all time nearly 20 years ago, while developers today are still trying to catch up.
The Video Game Critic
RBI Baseball does do a few things right. The controls are simple and intuitive, and you can toss the ball around the bases with ease. The ball scales out (becomes larger) as it ascends, making it easy to judge fly balls. Still, RBI has a lot of issues. First of all, the non-stop music will drive you nuts. Next, there are far too many homeruns, and most tend to fly way out of the park. The CPU opponent is dumb, allowing you to steal bases and stretch base hits unchallenged. RBI Baseball will suffice as a simple baseball game for young kids, but everybody else should seek out its excellent sequel: RBI Baseball 2.
