High Heat Baseball 2002 (PS2)
22 May 2009
Excerpt: High Heat Baseball is the series for the serious baseball fan. And the PS2 is the most powerful console on the market. So then, one would expect that High Heat Baseball 2002 would meld the control and elegance of High Heat's gameplay with the graphical power of the PS2 to create baseball nirvana. If only life were that simple...
Excerpt: I've said this in the past, and I'll say it again: the overall visual and audio presentation is so very important to the success of any sports game. This is why I can safely say, High Heat Major League Baseball 2002 may not get many takers based on looks alone. Things are completely overdone in a bad way, like player models looking a bit choppy, and animations appearing jerky. Let's not forget the horrible collision detections between the players.
Excerpt: Probably the best reason to get so angry at 3DO and their consistent spewing uncalled-for Arm Men games is the fact that the company is capable of so much better, like their High Heat baseball games.
Excerpt: What was I thinking last year? Why did I almost give up my copy of High Heat Baseball 2001 in exchange for that travesty called World Series 2K1? Fortunately when I saw WS in action, I immediately changed my mind, and stuck with perhaps the most in-depth baseball sim I ever played. However, there are still idiots out there who will pass on a masterpiece like this solely because the graphics aren't all that great.
Conclusion: OK, this score is killing me, because the best baseball game on the planet should earn a score higher than 80, right? It would, if it weren't also one of the buggiest games it has been my misfortune to play. I encountered so many bugs playing this game, I wonder if 3DO has been experiencing layoffs in its Quality Assurance group.
