D'une qualité sonore et graphique remarquable, Super Baseball 2020 est un jeu que tous les possesseurs de Neo-Geo se devraient de posséder, sauf peut-être si vous avez déjà Professional Baseball Star. Un jeu brillant, un jeu SNK qui une fois de plus montre à ses quelques détracteurs, qu'elle est bien la meilleure machine du moment.

Like SNK's excellent Baseball Stars line of games, the pitching and batting controls are easy and intuitive. The computer positions you fielders automatically, which is good because it's hard to track them when the ball is hit to the outfield. Fielding is the main flaw of Super Baseball 2020 - it's tough and judging fly balls is nearly impossible. Super Baseball 2020 is ideal for people with short attention spans, because the action never lets up. Close plays at the bases are enhanced by cool close-up cut scenes. The teams are a collection of men, women and robots, and you can "power-up" players with money you accumulate during the game, which adds a nice element of strategy. The CPU opponent is pretty slick, especially on the base paths, but Super Baseball 2020 is best played against a friend. This is the perfect antidote to gamers who can't stomach realistic baseball games.

Even for the mighty Neo Geo, the presentation is astonishing. The animation is slick, the music is brilliant and sampled voices scream and shout throughout. Gameplay-wise, Super Baseball is a laugh, the batting is a lot easier than in other games of this type and it all hangs together brilliantly. Easily the best sports game available on the Neo Geo and if you've got one, it's an essential purchase!
Super Baseball 2020 is a nice diversion from typical, statistics-orientated baseball games. It offers all the thrills and chills of traditional baseball, with some great new twists and outrageous two-player action. In the year 2020, baseball is super!

The beloved Baseball Stars series ended with only one sequel. Before that incredible second entry, there was Super Baseball 2020, a fun, light, and enjoyable game of futuristic sports. It's an obvious testing ground for Baseball Stars 2 as the engine is familiar, but 2020 stands on its own.
Super Baseball 2020 est donc un bon défouloir, surtout en multijoueur. Son mode solo avec son unique championnat est malheureusement trop court et on y reviendra pas forcément pour y jouer seul. Belle conversion, il ne vous reste plus qu'à y jouer avec la manette arcade de la MegaDrive pour se rapprocher de l'expérience furieuse de son homologue Neo Geo.
Für Kenner des Sports ist dieses Modul sicherlich mal eine willkommene Abwechslung, doch angesichts der etwas exotischen und ungewöhnlichen Regeln kann der mögliche Spielspaß für Anfänger schon während der Aufwärmphase in den Keller gehen. Probespielen ist allemal empfehlenswert.
Unlike this SNES version, this translation of the Neo Geo robotic-baseball game uses "crackers" - land mines placed on the field. Graphics aren't much, though.
2020 Super Baseball puts on a good show and does a nice job of conveying a futuristic baseball experience, but at times it feels like the developer tried to toss in a few too many new gameplay functions; it ultimately ends up dragging the overall experience down a little. Retro baseball video game fans should find plenty to like about the game, but only if they're able to deal with some of the more glaring eccentricities. The sport's games have come a long way in terms of gameplay and variety over the years; taking a radical step back might prove to be too much to ask for more modern gamers.

There isn't one single problem with 2020 Baseball, but there is one single thing I like about the game. I like the concept. In fact, I like the presentation in and of itself. The robots are cool, and the way the game gives pitchers and the players interesting moves is extremely unique. But let's face it, you only see these interesting techniques when the computer uses them. And that's only my first complaint. Oh boy this is a bad baseball game. It may actually be worse than that World Series game on the Dreamcast. In that game it didn't give you the option of fielding ... but in 2020 Baseball you might as well not have been given the option to field. The camera moves too slow to really know where any of your fielders are, and since they move around, you never really know where your outfield is.
Je moet maar net houden van baseball, wil je van dit spel kunnen genieten. Zeker omdat er van het baseball weinig overblijft door de futuristische invloed. Invloed op het spel is minimaal, en weinig mensen zullen dan ook weg zijn van Super Baseball 2020.
GenesisThe Video Game Critic
The ultra-modern sound effects are imaginative and not at all annoying. But below all the glitz is an arcade baseball game that isn't as wild as it wants to be. The gameplay is pretty much like any other baseball game, except for less home runs, fewer fouls, and more off-the-wall action. Sure you can buy power-ups during the game, but they don't do much more than give you more power at the plate. Yes, there are land mines in the field, but since the fielders are mostly computer-controlled, there's not much running around going on. In fact, the fielders always seem in the right position to catch the long fly balls (which take an eternity to come down). This is one of those games that seems great at first, but ultimately won't get much playtime in your Genesis.
Despite not being very good, these SNK baseball games (including the equally bad Baseball Stars series) have a strong cult following. Trust me, I get the emails every time I dare mention the poor fielding and atrocious batting mechanics. This is a game full of amazing ideas, and I truly wish SNK could have pulled it all together. But they didn't, and 2020 Super Baseball is yet another foul ball.
