Not Realistic

newfound32, Amazon

  • Summary: This game is not one bit realistic and really hard to make it through an entire game with out getting bored or annoyed with something that is just silly! The camera angles at times dont follow the play and you will need to catch a fly ball with nothing on the screen! The load times are ridiculous and through out the game your PS2 will sound like it's about to explode. The graphics are no better then my Ken Griffey game for N64.

Major Glitches, AVOID

  • Summary: After playing High Heat 2002 a few years ago, I ran to buy this as soon as it came out. I have to admit, Im still playing it, but thats only because Im determined to finish my 162 game season, but after thats over, Im sure Ill never touch it again. This game has got some major glitches. For example: this morning I was playing, the CPU had bases loaded with 2 outs.

Good Gameplay - Terrible Team Management

  • Summary: I liked HighHeat 2003 more than any other baseball game and looked forward to High Heat 2004. It's gameplay rewards those who apply baseball strategy (working the count, hit-and-run, sacrifices, lefty/righty match-ups, etc.), and punishes those who ignore them. This makes it my favorite on-field game. You can play an "arcade style" slugfest or tune the game to more accurately reflect the real game. This deserves a solid 4-stars.

Decent

  • Summary: ... For starters, the graphics in HH04 are so bad that it's almost painful to watch. You literally cannot tell one player from another. Even the stadiums were done poorly, and the crowd is even worse. Player animations in the field are horrible. Jumps and dives arent real-looking. Often times the ball will just magically appear to be caught by someone, despite the fact that it looked like it was 10 feet away. Nothing in this game is smooth, everything is jerky.

Don't Bother

  • Summary: As much as I hate to say it, don't bother with this game. It is a sad, sad disappointment. 3DO boasts that they have completely overhauled the graphics for 2004. But have they? The answer is yes and no. Much of the game looks and feels exactly like it did last year, except for the players, who now bear absolutely no resemblance to their real life counterparts. I mean none. The faces are simply awful; much, much worse than in 2003, and that's saying something.
