Summary: Okay, I'm sold... I have to be honest that I hated this game at first, but I'm at the mid-point of a season, and this is by-far the most realistic baseball sim out there. It is not without its imperfections. The game is hurt by poor base-running controls, unrealistic curveballs, and, worst of all, the computer will allow you to complete any trade you propose (it allowed me to trade Clay Bellinger for Juan Gonzalez...
Summary: High Heat Baseball is a very disappointing game. The graphics are horrible. I was playing Sega Dreamcast World Series 2K1 and when I switched to this I thought there would be better graphics. Instead I got players like Brady Anderson that don't have beards in real life but in the game they do. When pitching, you can't control where the ball is going, you can only control if it is a ball or a strike.
Summary: terrible graphics, no franchise mode, everything that made high heat a great baseball game before has been neglected to be included. while the AI is challenging, it is still to easy to hit a home run and even when u do, youll be hardpressed to even hear the crowd cheer for you. The announcing is terrible with the commentators saying the same comment repeatedly and most of the time consecutively. a definite rent before you buy.
Summary: I read many of the reviews of High heat baseball and most of them said the game was great but the graphics were not so hot. Not so hot is the understatement of the year. The graphics are terrible. I mean worse than any PS1 game that I ever played. OK, the AI is pretty good but lets face it the graphics are what makes the game fun to play. The crowd noise and the announcers suck. You can jack a homer out of the park and the crowd barely reacts.
Summary: With all of the great-looking games out for the PS2, how can Sony possibly let this one slip through?!?!? MLB 2001 on the PS1 looks better than this game. What happened to smooth animation? How about ANY animation? And the hunch-backed players look ridiculous, particularly with their broken wrists. The stadiums are OK...for a SNES game and the crowds are just pitiful. Gameplay?!?!?
Summary: This is one of the absolute worst PS2 games I have ever seen. At best HH baseball looks like an average PS1 game! I have now played all 3 PS2 baseball titles and with out a doubt HH is no where near the quality of TP or ASB, and that's not saying much since I wasn't all that thrilled these 2 either. The other reviews talk about realistic game play, the fact of the matter is the graphics and player animations are so bad, that any realism is lost because of this!
