Now Available: R.B.I. Baseball is a New Mobile Take on the Classic Baseball Game Formula

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

R.B.I. Baseball, known as the most popular Baseball game to ever be released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, has received a reboot via the modern smartphone. The original game licensed players from the MLB, and the same is true for R.B.I. Baseball 14, which features 480 of the current lineup of players. You can play the game, with visuals just slightly better than its predecessor, in a variety of modes including season, postseason, and exhibition.

The game features all 30 MLB teams, and you can play an entire 9-inning game in just 20 minutes. It also features easy-to-use “classic” controls, allowing you to control the game with what is basically just two buttons. The game is also very realistic, featuring players whose appearance and abilities are based on real stats. Finally, there is unlockable in-game content such as legacy jerseys that you can unlock by playing season mode.

You can get R.B.I. Baseball 14 on the App Store for $4.99.

As great as Real Basketball plays, one can only perform free throws so many times before they start to get a bit dull.

BBC Sport Released

BBC has released an iPhone app specifically targeted to the UK sports lover. In other words, Football fans. In my quick look it’s well done, and generally snappy version of their mobile site. Though it does seem to lack features that you would expect like the ability to add favorite teams. (or favourite teams if you prefer)

The London 2012 Summer Olympics are very nearly upon us, and they mark the first Summer Olympics with a hugely successful App Store to tempt us in. The App Store was new and somewhat untouched ground back in 2008, so it’s no wonder we’re seeing so many titles emerge this time round. Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 is one such title.

Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 offers the stunning photography we’ve come to expect from Sports Illustrated, along with up to the second scores and results. A medal count as well as regular news will be provided, alongside a schedule of all upcoming events.

It’s the photography that will hopefully grip users the most, however, with top photos of each day and a daily video recap promised. Throughout, there are features from Sports Illustrated‘s writers to capture readers’ attentions.

Sports Illustrated Live from London 2012 should prove an ideal visual-heavy companion to the Summer Olympics this month.

It’s out now for the iPad and is free to download.

I’m not what anyone would consider a soccer fan, but that doesn’t keep me from appreciating all of the cool stuff players can expect to find in EA’s upcoming FIFA 13. This is, of course, in addition to the expected bullet-points such as improved graphics and such.

FIFA 13 is indeed a great looking game. Player animations are incredibly smooth and their likenesses are captured eerily well considering this is an iOS game. Although they do have that creepy blank look that so many real world based character models tend to have. A bunch of smaller details will no doubt cause salivary glands to work overtime as well, including balls sporting the proper logos and all the tiny graphics typically found on a player’s jersey. And all of these fine details can be enjoyed up close and personal thanks to the game’s instant replay feature.

It doesn’t stop with tie visuals though. For the first time ever EA Sports Football Club will make its way into an iOS title. Even better, preexisting accounts will be carried over, so nobody will have to start from scratch on their iOS device. Of course my personal favorite addition is the way special skill shots and moves can be controlled via a second virtual stick on the right-hand side of the screen. Simply tap and drag in a given pattern or direction and the controlled player will start with the fancy footwork.

No information is available yet on pricing, but football (football, football) enthusiasts can expect to find FIFA 13 in the App Store sometime this fall.

One of the biggest events in the international soccer calendar is starting in a matter of weeks: Euro 2012. Thanks to this, a plethora of apps are trickling their way through to the App Store for keen soccer fans to enthusiastically check out. While we’re going to be taking a closer look at the selection very soon, Total Euro 2012 deserves mentioning now.

The app contains a huge amount of information for Euro 2012 fans. There’s detailed head to head comparison of all the teams participating in the tournament, along with recent matches and past Euro/World Cup performance. Each player comes with detailed statistics along with their past performance of the previous two seasons.

Once the tournament begins, live updates will be provided with live commentary and up to date statistics with the promise of push notifications and post-game video highlights.

Total Euro 2012 is set to be a very comprehensive app that will be ideal for soccer fans to check in on regularly.

It’s out now, priced at $2.99.
