Hybrid: Eternal Whisper or Baseball Superstars 2010?

I can afford both, but... I don't wanna spend that much, it adds up. Let's get some opinions going

Oh, and since there's always one person who says it... I know they're different genres, and yes I can compare 'cause that's how decisions are made.

Hybrid: Eternal Whisper was a really big let down. It's gonna need a massive update to make it anymore fun. The controls are iffy and the graphics unattractively old-school (not the cool looking retro). Attacks are limited and the gesture attacks work only half the time. Baseball Superstars 2009 was fantastic, no doubt 2010 is doubly so. Poll?

Alright, you'll probably be getting a lot of different answers. But in my opinion, I would go for Hybrid.

I think that it has one of the best storylines of any game and you'll become deeply immersed in it. Some people don't like how the action is, with no exploration. You just go into areas and beat the crap out of everyone and then continue the story.

The many combos and actions take some practice getting used to, but once you get the controls and start beating the crap out of all your enemies, you'll really enjoy it.

It is an RPG action game, and you can level up stats and learn new skills, all the while powering up your character with the best equipment. I highly recommend this game, and I do prefer it over Zenonia, although that may be because I haven't played Zenonia in a while.

I beta tested Baseball Superstars 2010 and I must say it is a dramatic improvement over the BS 2009. There's new controls for the game, although I still stick to the original. There's multiplayer but its not actually against the real person. I had a great time playing it, and if you did play BS 2009, just imagine that with every issue improved.

I believe that all Gamevil games are highly polished and long-lasting games. The choice is up to you, but my vote goes to Hybrid.

Beta Testing/ed: Undercroft, Baseball Superstars 2010, Battle for Wesnoth, Fuzion, Twilight Golf, Indestructible Tank, Nanomechs Online Multi, Plushed, Ground Effect, Castlecraft, Inotia 2, Boom it Up, Guerrilla Bob, Caligo Chaser, Vanquish, IMO, Crunchy Orbs, Zenonia 2, Luna Story, Aralon, Shadow Era, Hybrid 2

Well this is tough... I haven't ever actually played any baseball games and I've never played it in real life either, in fact I'm not even 100% on the rules... but I liked the demo for 09 and the upgrades/collectable items draw me to it. As for Hybrid, it seems a lot of the people who are disappointed were expecting more (especially after Zenonia), but I'd never heard of it so I wasn't expecting anything and I think I can probably appreciate it's simplicity.

I'll probably be here this time tomorrow still trying to make my mind up.

I think that's the second time you've recommended Blue Defense to me, but no one else has ever mentioned it Is it really that good?

I didn't really like it that much, but it's a a hit and miss for some. The style just isn't for me, but isn't there a light version? Ok, back to Algebra 2.

Both great games...I have both.

Hybid has a great story and characters, although a bit lacking on the controls...

BS is a awesome game too.

BS 2010 is impossible... Hardest game besides Ninja TD.
