Super Baseball 2020

Title Screen

This game can be quite comparable to Base Wars from the NES. Although I sort of bashed Base Wars, I did state that I love the concept of it. Yet, with Super Baseball 2020, which is six years away from when I put this article together, I don’t see MLB catching up with this futuristic style of Baseball in that short time (lame joke). Unlike Base Wars, the game does not including fighting with the close calls. It does, however, have robot umpires who do a better job as an umpire than a human being (supposedly). It does remind me of the Jim Joyce incident.

All games in Super Baseball 2020 are played in one single stadium. Whichever team you choose, you still play in the famous Cyber Egg Stadium. There is a difference with real baseball and this with that mention; a home run can be scored only if you hit the ball over the center fence. If you hit the ball over to the left or right, it bounces off the wall and back into the field. If your runner is fast enough, he/she or it can get an inside-the-park home run. The foul area is also reduced to immediately around the third to first base line, after that, it goes into fair territory.

Money is gained while playing the game. You get $100 for a putout, $1,000 for a strike out, $300 for a single, $4,000 for a solo home run, etc, etc, etc. You may want to spend as much money as you can during the game because in season play, it doesn’t overflow, you’re back to zero, it’s far similar to the old cellphone plans back in the early 2000s, and I fell victim to that due to Sprint. So spend that money on upgrades on that game while you can.

This game does have some issues though as shown on Wikipedia, take a look: Here.

When playing this, you’ll likely see less low-scoring games. I played this and I got beat 20-10. Maybe I suck at this game? Perhaps.
