Hitting?

Daniel Segal "Daniel", Amazon
24 May 2004
  • Summary: The hitting interface in this game is awful. When the computer throws fastballs up in the corner or anywhere besides the target, then you can't hit it. What I do is wait for a pitch to come down the middle and swing the bat. I wish I could get my money back for this piece of trash. I mean, how fun is a game where you can't hit the ball??? Akklaim needs some help.

DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Jeremy Pischke, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is pretty cool until it won't let you hit ball. The graphics are good but it is not worth your money and time. Don't buy it. I could never figure out how to steal bases. Controls are confusing.

bad, stay away

  • Summary: This game is very poor. The graphics are pretty decent until you look at the crowd, then you realize your just playing a video game with a matted crowd, ruined the game. Baserunning is impossible to master, its like, to advance a runner use triangle plus the direction of the base that the runner is on, and some other garbage. You always get out as well when this happens because the computer is actually really smart. Which leads me to my next con.

Why can't they make a good baseball game?

George "George", Amazon
18 August 2002
  • Summary: This game is much more frustrating than it is fun. The main problem with the game is the batting. You can have the setting on easy or regular. On easy batting you hit the first pitch all the time, so the opposing pitcher throws three or four pitches each inning. On regular batting you are lucky if you can get three hits a game. Another problem is the pitcher's stamina. You can have a starting pitcher with a no hitter in the 5th, but he will be completely out of gas.

More frustration than fun!

Monosylabik "jbrown87", Amazon

  • Summary: All Star Baseball 2003 is what I would call a mediocre game. I chose to buy it because Newsweek magazine said it was the best. Far from it. For starters, everything you've heard about the hitting is pretty much true. Yes, it is a guessing game. Yes, the pitchers throw 80mph right by you before you can blink. But I found that that wasn't even the most frustrating thing in the game. For a game that looks so realistic, some of gameplay is not.

Has potential, but frustrating

Luke A. Grim, Amazon

  • Summary: While I only give this game 2 stars, the potential is limitless! All the games anymore will let you create a player and play a season, sure...How many have cards, stadiums, players and teams to unlock?!?... Those are some of the goods....Now here's the extreme downfall....The hitting!... As soon as the pitcher releases the ball, you'd better have the cursor where it belongs. No, don't look at where you THINK it's going or where it LOOKS like it's going.
