Diabolical Pitch

 

Whenever I found out Suda51 is involved with a game, I know I’m in for a very unique experience; Diabolical Pitch is no different. Diabolical Pitch is an action baseball game for Kinect on XBLA developed by Grasshopper Manufacture (known for Killer 7,...

Diabolical Pitch Review

 

When Microsoft revealed the Kinect it was clear who their intended audience was – anyone but the core gamer. Still, many gamers including myself invested in the device and hoped that our decision would eventually pay off. It's been nearly two years...

When playing Diabolical Pitch it is near impossible to not let yourself be transported to the boardwalk arcade, filled with flashing lights, the sound of tokens rushing out, and the salty smell of the ocean. Diabolical Pitch is by all means an...

Some time ago, cult-creator Goichi Suda set out to create a "mature" game for the Kinect, - a feat that was only attempted by a few brave developers

Diabolical Pitch Review

 

Grasshopper Manufacture's first Kinect experiment is absolutely out of its mind, but absurdity can't carry it.

The messy clash of themes, gameplay, and controls in Diabolical Pitch undoes everything. Brief bursts of entertainment occur only early on, and they’re almost exclusively a result of the self-aware absurdity in Grasshopper Manufacture’s presentation....

Diabolical Pitch is ridiculous, but in all the wrong ways.

Wacky vibe

Every once in a while, I read a product description that really makes me want to play the game, just to see if it's as crazy as it sounds. Diabolical Pitch first caught my eye a few months ago...

Unique ; Weird ; Throwing is accurate

Repetitive ; Occasionally unresponsive

We haven't seen many sports or Kinect games hit the XBox Live Marketplace, at least compared to other genres

Consumer review by:

Diabolical Pitch- Xbox 360

 

A fun game with a great sense of personality, but let down by the fact that Kinect's inability to register your every move often results in unwarranted level failures. At two hours, it's a pretty short game too.

Consumer review by:

Diabolical Pitch- Xbox 360

 

There really isn't a whole lot to Diabolical Pitch - it's over in a few hours, and every level functionally feels the same. Your mileage may vary, but personally, I had a ton of fun with it. While it doesn't have nearly as much charm as the typical...

Consumer review by:

Diabolical Pitch- Xbox 360

 

Throwing a thunder ball often took multiple attempts, while calmly aiming for a headshot felt much more accurate and satisfying. Ultimately, as great as Diabolical Pitch's zany concepts are, the inconsistency of the controls dulled the overall...
