I was fortunate enough to be able to beta test Com2uS’s upcoming game, Baseball Slugger: Home Run Race 3D. As you already know by the name, Baseball Slugger is a baseball game. If you’ve ever watched the Home Run Derby during the MLB All-Star break, this game is exactly like it.
So, I won’t give out a bunch of details on this game, but many fans of baseball will enjoy this game. With awesome graphics and effects this is certainly a game that has potentional. There are 4 modes currently: Matchup, Arcade, Classic, and Training. In Matchup you play a character and can compete against other people on a server connection for the top spot in the world. In Arcade Mode, you try to hit as many home runs as possible before you get 10 strikes. In Classic Mode, it’s basically the same thing as Arcade Mode, but any ball you hit that’s not a home run counts as a strike.
There also are Special Balls. If you hit one of these out of the park, it will give you extra points. All balls vary in the the number of points you can get. Hitting consecutive home runs also helps out your score, and hitting polls, LED boards, lights, and advertising signs help out as well.
No big bugs I’ve found yet, but I’ll play it a little more and report any to Com2us.
Can’t say too much now as I don’t want to spoil this game for you guys. But I’m sure sports fans/ baseball fans will enjoy this game.
