Slot machine, stay away.


Extremely inconsistent. I played for about 8 hours all together, and there were times where I never had to move the bat to hit hr. And then there were times that I couldn’t hit the ball at all. The longer you play for free, the more complicated everything gets. It is still fun, but how well you play the game doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is the game wants to make a pay out (like a slot machine). When the game wants to pay, you can’t keep the ball in the park. But, when it doesn’t want to pay, you can’t hit anything but the front of the fence. I started to notice when I won my first 5 derbys. All of the sudden everything got way more complicated. Garbage, and by my standards, unethical. And what is up with the breaking balls? Why is the pitcher throwing curveballs and pitches inside and impossible to hit. Realistically the derby pitcher is on your side. Garbage. Game also has an accelerated clock in derby mode.

Without spending any money I have come to the conclusion that I may have better equipment and players but the results will be just as aggravating.

For anyone who plays multiplayer be skeptical, there is no guarantee that you are actually playing a real person. You could be playing against a server designed to beat you with the same shady practices as the single player mode does.

Really bad support staff


As much as my son loves this game there is no app support for issues. We made an in-app purchase but it never showed up. I contacts support team, I got one response that gave me instructions on how to set up my profile(that was not the question); I followed up 3 times after that and received no response. Finally called apple support and got my money back. apple says do not purchase anything from them until they tell you they resolved the original issue. Too bad that they do not care about their customers or try to solve problems.. it is one thing to make great apps and draw customers but to be successful they also need to keep the current customer base happy. Unless they do not care-- which sadly seems to be the case here...

Hits a home run!


Graphic and game play are really good and smooth! Wish it was easier to get the MLBucks, too many upgrade items are accessible only with MLBucks and not coins! Overall good game! Latest update has the home run derby competitors for this year! Nice! Newest update tracks stats and achievements! Multiplayer has some issues, home runs not counted and also losing against someone when you hit more home runs not just the tiebreak distance! Starting to become an issue! Please fix!
