What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Super Mega Baseball is an energetic downloadable cartoon-style baseball game with an emphasis on quick, pick-up-and-play fun. Players create their own team from a variety of characters and then compete in a standard nine-inning game complete with booming sound effects, bright animated effects, and other flourishes. There are minor references to alcohol and tobacco (one character's name is "Olaf Beerson"). This game's simple controls and intentionally unsophisticated gameplay mechanics make it very easy to play.

What's it about?

SUPER MEGA BASEBALL is about one thing: playing a fun nine innings of baseball filled with colorful characters, frequent arcade-style flourishes, and upbeat music/sound effects. It's a game designed for players to jump in and play as quickly as possible.

Is it any good?

Super Mega Baseball is a throwback to when games were nothing but simple and fun. In a world where hyperrealism, complicated controls, and an intimidating number of game modes and options tend to be the norm, this game went the opposite direction to ensure it focused on one thing and did it well. Most players will get through the game using only the directional buttons and a limited number of button presses. In fact, it even offers customized difficulty options so players are only focused on playing the game and not on unnecessary challenges.

The game is limited in what it offers for long-term play (there are only leaderboards and "season play"). But the good news is that, in terms of accessibility, this title hits it out of the park. With the bevy of quirky and fun-looking stadiums, the expressive cartoon-style characters, and the frequent visual effects (slow-motion replays of home runs, fireworks in the sky, and so on), the entire package feels exceptionally well crafted and, most important of all, fun.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the spirit of good sportsmanship. How do you feel when you win? How about when you lose?

  • The billboards and ads in this game are all for fictional companies. What would you think if real products and companies were used instead?
