Summary: Okay, I know that I will not be the first to say, that if you are looking for graphics or a pretty game, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a solid baseball game that is fast-paced and fun to play, 3DO has hit a home run. From a gameplay aspect, High Heat 2K2 is awesome. Depending on the settings, the game can be very easy in Rookie mode or difficult to the point of where you want to break your PS2 by the time you get to the highest level.
Summary: This game is really easy to get good at. Took me about one game to beat the computer and my average score is 22 to 0. I pitched a no hitter in the third game, so if u want a more challenging game dont get this one!!!
Summary: I brought me a copy of high heat baseball and was impressed with it's game play. what was disappointing was the way the game graphic jumped around. As a avid gamer I see that this was probaly a rush title. Most Sports video games are released just before the regular season. I know after playing the PC version the company now has time to focus on improvements.
Summary: To be honest, this is the first baseball game I've played since the first Triple Play that appeared on the original Playstation, so naturally I didn't know quite what to expect. Now that I've had the game for a while, I'm pleased to say that I am very impressed with this game. The physics are very real, with most infield hits resulting in outs, except for the really weak ones to third.
Summary: Well, I've purchase HH2000, SSHH2001, SSHH2001CE, and HH2002 all for Playstation and PC. Now, I'm going to be honest the gameplay is much better on PC than Playstation. The graphics are alot better and the games run alot smoother. But 3DO came out with HH2002 on PS2. I just had to have it. Now I'm not going to lie. If you put this game on rookie it's like a walk in the park, but if you get the difficulty on the right level.
Summary: I actually love this game, again I am a huge baseball fan! I had this game from last year on the PC and love the great realism. I would not always hit that 3 run HR to win the game, and the ace could have that bad day and give up 5 runs in the 2nd inning. This same goes for this game. I have owned it for weeks. I even had a player ejected for throwing at a batter after a HR! The stats page is difficult but has LOTS of great numbers!
Summary: High Heat 2002 for the Psx2 is a great baseball title. While it's not perfect, it's a sure winner for those who want to stray away from the arcade-homerun heavy games like Triple Play from EA. The game is heavy on the simulation. Everything is very realistic--down to players arguing calls and mound visits to the low run scoring games. Pither vs batter is done well where tough pitchers are tough to hit and not-so great pitchers will be somewhat easier to go up against.
Summary: Ahh, baseball. Yes, it truly is americas favorite passtime. And when someone actually makes a GOOD video gamr out of it, I'm happy as a schoolgirl with cotton candy. And this game is quite good. The games batting system is very realistic. It has yet to be realized realistic physics of how far the ball goes when it hits curtain spots. There's not really that much that you can really say about this game that describes how fun it is. Problems with this game are few.
Summary: I was amazed by the graphics of Triple Play Baseball on PS2. I was dismayed by the gameplay. On the easy setting, the game was a joke-not at all realistic. On the normal setting, with the computer-assisted control feature turned off, I couldn't seem to get the players to do what I wanted them to do. Just me? Or was it the pressure-sensitive controls? I don't know and it doesn't matter-I took the game back and picked up High Heat.
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...
