Summary: The best American baseball game I've played. I haven't played the other baseball titles for PS2, but it sounds like TP hasn't changed much, AS2003 sounds not bad. I have to say to the game makers again, check out some of the Japanese baseball games like World Stadium or even RBI baseball from the old school. Anyways: Pros: Pretty good gameplay. Defence and baserunning are easy to control. Graphics also good.
Summary: I don't doubt that this may be the best baseball game for PS2 and standing alone I would have given the game 4 stars, but compared to last year there is little improvement. High Heat 2002 was a great game for its game play, but had horrible graphics and some kinks to work out. 3DO did little to improve the game. There are some improvements from last year however, most noticable is the improved look of the players, 3DO added a little more detail.
Summary: High Heat 2003 gets its 3 stars only because it's the best baseball sim out there - by default. I really can't understand what the developers have been doing for the past year, since 2003 looks almost exactly like 2002. Cons: Graphics! I don't need the latest 3D graphics, but please, make some improvements. An animated crowd would be nice, as would more realistically rendered players. And please, don't allow players to walk through each other! Scouting Reports.
