Who’s on First?
World BaseBall Stars comes to us from Korean Studio FourThirtyThree, sometimes stylized as 4:33. The studio opened its doors in 2009 and released Android and IOS games in over 130 countries. The studio’s previous title, Boxing Star, currently sits at over 732,000 downloads on Google Play. It’s also received a Google Play Editor’s Choice award and averages a respectable 4.4 user review score. Other FourThirtyThree games, such as the RPG Monster Super League, earned similar acclaim.
So FourThirtyThree is definitely a studio that knows how to make a fun and engaging mobile game. The question now is whether World BaseBall Stars can live up to that legacy. Early reviews are a bit more mixed, and there are some reports of unexpected crashes. FourThirtyThree says they are looking into it, and hopefully, the developers will resolve the problem before too long. Only time will tell if the rocky launch is just a bump in the road or a sign of things to come.
In the meantime, World BaseBall Stars is free-to-play and available now on Google Play and the App Store. And keep your eyes peeled for our upcoming review here on Hardcore Droid.
