Which MLB game is this season's iOS all-star?

Andrew Hayward | July 15, 2015
It's the all-star break: The approximate midway point of the Major League Baseball season when regular games stop for a few days and most people (players included) pay little attention to Tuesday's All-Star Game. If you want to see your favorite team in action right now, you'll have to make it happen yourself--by firing up one of the official MLB games in the App Store.

The verdict

If you're eager for a baseball simulation to keep you entertained for the rest of the season, go with R.B.I. Baseball 15: It's the only one on this list that is fundamentally sound, solidly polished, and isn't balanced in a way that encourages spending on in-app purchases. In fact, it doesn't even have any in-app purchases. Score.

Last year's series revival was a letdown in a lot of ways, but R.B.I. Baseball 15 makes enough enhancements--from presentation to control responsiveness and the ability to save and exit games--to deliver a better experience this time around. It's worth the $5 if you expect to play a fair bit before the 2016 season starts up, otherwise MLB Perfect Inning 15 is an OK option for freebie dabbling.
