Summary: About as close as you can come to stepping onto the baseball field. It still amazes me the company (3DO) who produced the High Heat games went out of business. It must have been due to poor business management because it sure wasn't because of their game quality. If you can find this on ebay, snag it up. You'll love it.
With this one, I can see myself playing a whole season.

Summary: I've already read a bunch of reviews on the pros and cons of this game. Here's some comments I'd like to make that may or may not have been overlooked. I'm used to the All-Star Baseball series and that means I'm used to never drawing a walk. The pitchers in those games never threw a 3-2 ball...at least that's what I remember...someone may correct me. With this game, you'll see that happen more often and it's very refreshing.
Summary: First off, let me say it, this game rules. Second, to EA: Your constant dragging...baseball games have forced me to go with the 'ol 3DO, who's games aren't as detailed but still manage to satisfy even the most tough to please gamer. It obviously seems that the folks at EA don't care about satisfying baseball fans, they care about graphics. High Heat has changed my outlook entirely on baseball games.
Summary: This game is very underrated from the reviews I have read. I would give it a perfect rating if not for the lack of off the field managing. The only problem I have with the entire game is the lack of injuries, no disabled list and you only get a 25 man roster (no triple A teams and a very small bench) The game play itself is tremendous, the scoring is realistic and the computer doesn't just score on homers, they will bunt runners over and score from 2nd on singles.
Summary: I was about to buy this game until I actually played it at the store. The graphics were worse in this then in MLB 99 for the PS1. The gameplay was however pretty good and realistic. But insted of wasting 50 bucks on this buy Triple Play 2002 its a 100 times better.
