Baseball Superstars 2013 Review

Baseball Superstars 2013 Review

Dec 27, 2012

Gamevil’s Baseball Superstars 2013 is a surprisingly wide-ranging baseball simulation that brings more-or-less realistic baseball career management to Android handhelds.

It started out by giving me a 100 coins on the first day, and I noted that there were daily payouts for playing. I was able to pick mode (batter or pitcher), and then I was able to go further and pick stance, position and even handedness.

The gameplay was fairly involved, piecing together relatively complex concepts and adding a touch of whimsical to create fairly interesting sim. I started out as a rookie and had the opportunity to get better as the season went on, gaining experience on the way that allowed me to upgrade my skills and that of my team. At the beginning, it was made clear that I had goals to meet, and not meeting them could cause me being let go. Doing well got me praise and more.

Doing well pretty much boiled down to doing well in games. Different opposing teams had different attributes; players had different specialties, based on the game engine. Pitchers had their favorites throws, so adjusting was key. I was able to use accumulated points to make my attributes increase, and I could train to facilitate my ability to level up faster. Batting was a function of timing. Hits, of course, were precious, home runs golden.

There were a number of features here and there that added to the fun factor. I liked the quiz feature, and P2P option was a mode of gameplay that added value in my opinion. I liked the in-game challenges, and quests were cool too.

The graphics were great; the animations fit the style, and the sounds were distinctly baseball-y in nature; the strikeout calls were full of flavor.

After every game, I was given a letter grade and commentary by my manager, which was an interesting touch. At season’s end the big news was delivered.

All in all, it’s one of the best sports sims I have played, with subtle nuances of the sport worked into it in very creative ways.
