RBI '93 features complete up-to- date rosters for all 28 Major League teams, including the Florida and Colorado expansion teams. In addition to enabling you to play all your favorite baseball heroes, this game's loaded with new options and features that make it a must-play for all baseball fans. Batter up!
RBI '93's prolific set-up features give it appeal to video ball players of all calibers. Play a single game, a best-of-seven tournament, or a division race. You can even take on every team in the league. Go solo against the computer, butt bats against a buddy, or select the teams and watch the computer play itself while you munch on peanuts and hot dogs in the box seats.
If you are worried about challenge, don't! You can set difficulty at Easy, Normal, or Hard. RBI '93 plays each team and player according to its real-life strengths and weaknesses, so novices definitely don't want to start off by taking on Oakland or Toronto in the Hard setting. If things really get tough, a password feature enables you to pick up play throughout your entire season.
In addition to the '93 Major League rosters, you can play the Division Champs from '84-'91 and the '89, '90, and '91 All-Star teams from both divisions. For more team mixing and matching, the Create Teams mode enables fans to build an ultimate "Dream Team" from all the rosters in the game. And since you have rosters from seasons past, you can pick certain players from their better seasons.
ProTip: Listen closely to the announcer as he I.D.'s the defensive player with the best chance of fielding the ball.
RBI '93 is the statistics-enthusiast's friend. It provides detailed stats of all teams and players to help you make decisions. The computer also automatically updates each player's stats during games and throughout the season.
- Before the pitch, keep moving in the batter's box to offset the pitcher's aim.
- Inside pitches you have a better chance of striking out batters.
If all these features aren't enough to keep your bat up, other new options include a great "situations" mini-ball game and 17 different "Game Breaker" situations based on actual baseball lore. (It's the last game of the series, bottom of the ninth, two men out, the winning run is on base, and you're up at bat -- what are you going to do?!) You also get a more active pitcher, the ability to switch between computer-assisted and unassisted defense, and a defense Practice mode to hone your fielding skills. As in RBI 4 you also get to choose any player and enter him in a 20-pitch Competition in the Home Run Derby.
The market is glutted with baseball games for all of the systems. To stand out a game must have excellent features, sharp graphics, responsive controls, and excellent sound and graphic effects. RBI '93 scores on all counts. You don't have to read the manual to play the game, but its detail includes complete rosters and stats for die-hard baseball fanatics. It's a safe bet that RBI '93 will vie for the title of Best Baseball Game of the Season! Play ball!

Over the years Tengen has done a good job of refining this game to its present level of quality. In terms of offering a complete package that blends a solid play mechanism with quite a few special features, R.B.I. '93 scores a home run in my book. In a crowded field of baseball titles, this one does it all for me.
R.B.I. '93 is a great mix of pure action and simulation nicely blended together! I enjoyed the realistic sound effects and the control was nearly flawless. Creating your own teams was a nice touch. Don't get scared by all the detail because this is one of the better baseball games out there. Great job Tengen!
This is an exceptionally well-playing baseball game. The graphics are very good, and the music and sounds fare well, too. The game play is solid and very easy to control. There is an incredible amount of options. You can even create your own team! Baseball fans will surely be pleased by this cart's extreme realism.
Baseball games are very hard to program, as seen with the many failures over the past few years, so when R.B.I. '93 emerged, I figured, gee, another baseball hopeless. Actually, it isn't bad at all, and in fact, once you get the techniques down, it's very realistic! The characters should be redrawn, but otherwise, bravo!Baseball games are very hard to program, as seen with the many failures over the past few years, so when R.B.I.

There is an options menu that can change the type of game you play, the series type, the number of players (including the computer playing against itself), difficulty, music, password, and a new defense mode which allows a player to have the outfielders be controlled manually, automatically, or have the computer assist in the plays. Create your teams from the roster which contains the American and National leagues, All Stars, and real players from specific years. After you select your lineup and pitchers, you're ready to play ball!
