Picked it up this morning despite mixed App Store reviews. The virtual stick has a very small detection box when you first put your finger down, and it's making it hard to quickly change directions. It could use some tweaking too. But, all in all, it seems playable. I'm thankful they still have the Save & Quit option, so we can suspend games when we need to.

Anyone else pick it up? How are the controls feeling for you?

Does this have some sort of “coach mode?” I prefer managing the team, choosing batting and pitching options (including individual pitches and at-bats), without having to control runners and fielders. You know... coach mode.

If the reviews and user reviews for RBI 18 are any indication, well...just read them before plunking down the money.

EDIT: Referring to console versions.


The Show doesn't even have a season this year. Sticking w '17.

No, RBI Baseball probably wonít ever go with the coaching option, being based on the NES arcade game. It would be nice to choose Franchise and then let the CPU control both teams so you can watch games I guess. However, MLB Manager 2018 should be here soon. Unfortunately, I donít expect MLB Manager to have RBI style graphics.

I know, it surprised me that you have to go with the franchise or road to th show. You canít just play a season of ball without at least telling the AI to manage all the team stuff. I donít even know if you can shorten the franchise season in The Show. Might have to stick with last yearís on PS4 and RBI 18 on mobile.

Thanks. Iíll wait for MLB 2018. And as much as I love beautiful graphics, thatís the least of my concerns when looking for a baseball game or sim. I date back to the days of Earl Weaver Baseball and long for a game that offers what it did in its time.
Thanks for the heads up.
