Is It Any Good?

When it comes to gameplay, there's really not a lot of difference between HOMERUN BATTLE 2 and its predecessor. That's bad. The game also takes an oddly aggressive stance against players from the get go, forcing them to agree to a user requirement that includes the condition that they are "required to report bugs." (Isn't that the developer's job?) That's bad, too.

It's a multiplayer focused game that has unregulated chat between players. For adults, that's fine, but if your kid is playing, it could be bad. And it is one of the most aggressive marketers for in-app purchases around, sending pricing lists as notifications. The currency doesn't buy much (new hats, etc.), but the game demands a lot. And that's really bad. The gameplay's fun, but on the whole, this is an app with one too many strikes against it.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
