Diabolical Pitch Review

PlayDevil
4 September 2012
  • Summary: " Diabolical Pitch " is an interesting little oddity, and for Kinect owners its 800MS price tag seems reasonable. That said it is a good thing there is a demo, as it will enable you to discover if you will suffer too many of control niggles with your Kinect set up and if they will sour you to the...

Diabolical Pitch review

GamesRadar
23 June 2012
  • Excerpt: It's ironic that Diabolical Pitch begins with the protagonist suffering a career-ending arm injury, because extended time playing the game made us pretty sore. There's a reason professional pitchers keep their arms in tubs of ice and why Tommy John surgeries are so common.
  • Pros: Grasshopper's creepy/fun aesthetic, Early use of the Diabolical Pitches, The arcade trappings, especially in bonus stages
  • Cons: Your shoulders will be on fire, The standard Kinect accuracy issues, Damning repetitiveness

  • Conclusion: I so wanted to love this game. Hearing the story, seeing the visuals, I was ready to campaign for all to download this immediately given the creativity of concept alone. Then I hit 'start.' Sadly, the sketchy controls ruin this game.

  • Excerpt: What do you get when you mix demonic elephants, a former major league baseball star, and a creepy carnival? One of the weirdest, flawed, and most enjoyable games on the Xbox Live Arcade.

Total Xbox
4 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Now here’s the kind of Kinect game we haven’t seen much of — one aimed not at the casual crowd, but at hardcore gamers who want a genuinely fun experience with a bit of an edge. If that’s you, then stand up and cheer, because this rookie sensation looks like the genre’s early 2012 MVP.
  • Pros: + A crazy premise that actually works with Kinect and requires strategic thinking., + The visual style is par for the Grasshopper course — insane and unforgettable.
  • Cons: ? Does anyone know a good arm doctor? This game will make you sore.

Diabolical Pitch Review (XBLA, Kinect)

Gamers Daily News

  • Summary: A novel take on lightgun play, throwing baseballs at enemies is fun for a little while. By the time repetition sets in, Diabolical Pitch should have earned its relatively low price.

Expert Review

3 April 2012
  • Summary: It requires a level of physical endurance that borders on inhuman, tasking athletes with tearing their arms off six days a week. Not only are there immense physical demands, but pitchers also have to consider infinite factors with each and every throw: Handedness, environmental factors, strategy —...

Diabolical Pitch

Ready Up
10 April 2012
  • Summary: A short-but-sweet arcade experience, Diabolical Pitch offers solid fun for the Kinect at the cost of longevity. Far from diabolical, this is a good game that while never quite achieving greatness, may still pleasantly surprise you in its simplistic action and its absurd charms.
