pitching and hitting are exactly right!

Summary: A few years ago I read Tim McCarver's book Baseball for Brain Surgeons and Other Fans. McCarver having been a catcher, that book contains a treasure trove of knowledge concerning what goes on in the showdown between the batter vs. the pitcher and catcher at every single pitch (and that showdown accounts for 90% of the action in any given baseball game).
Summary: I had to buy this game without knowing much about it, so I want others to know what I didn't. The graphics are definitely better than HH 2003, which wasn't bad anyway. Much more realistic graphics, a plus. The game play is slightly different. The fielders hop around more before throwing--it's more realistic, but harder to get used to.
Still the best baseball game out, from a guy who knows games
1 August 2003
Summary: This game is hard when it's on Hall of Fame level, which is what it suppose to be. With some games you put it on hard and the game is so easy to play. The only reason this game is not a five star is because the graphics are not that good. Another thing is for some reason I don't hit many homers. I played with the A's for about 25 games and have 16 homers as a team. Actually that ain't that bad and sounds fairly realistic.
Summary: This is the best 2004 baseball game on the market. It has good graphics and lots of different things you can do. There is a downside to this game. Many of people who bought it have had problems with it. I think that this CD is too fagile. At a store I saw 4 CD's in repair and all of them but 1 was MLB High Heat 2004.
Summary: If you want realisim it's here. There is not "put the ball where you want to pitch it" and no batting cursor. You move the analog stick where you see the ball the better you get at identifing pitches the better you hit. The graphics are Good.. much better than HH2003, but still a bit lacking.
Summary: First of all the good stuff: Graphics - 10 times better than any of the previous in the HH series. Gameplay - Pretty good,the outfield relays are great, Nice to have the multiple pitcher/batter interfaces which are in the previous games, and the ability to edit players which I will talk about later. Realism of the game - I have seen a few comments about the pitching and only being able to throw a strike or a ball in a general direction.
Summary: I am a huge fan of franchise modes, and I though this would be my answear to want. The franchise mode is ok. The interface is awful, it is not easy to move around though the game. The free agent signing is not very good it is hard to sought by position, and you have to select every player you want to see the stats of. The draft is ok as well. The interface is bad and you can't scout you players all it gives you is the players potentional. The gameplay is very good.
Summary: So I figure I'll go out and buy HH 2004 being that I loved 2003 so much. I have only played a few games but I can tell already that this game will be the best on the market for a second straight year. The graphics on the stadiums are incredible, every detail is rendered nearly to perfection. The grass looks beaautiful, I wanted to go out and buy baseball tickets seeing this. The gameplay starts off as being too easy on offense...
Summary: This year's version has much better graphics than HH 2003 as well as more realistic fielding. The tuning menus allow you to change even more options such as how fast the fielders move, how hard the cathers throw, all the way to how difficult or easy it is for you to make contact. The basic gameplay is the same which is great because HH 2003 was already an ausome game. But this year, the fielding is cooler, for example...
Summary: I am the type of person that is loyal to his game brand. For instance, I only by EA Sports games for all of my sporting needs on Playstation 2, and only Sega Sports games during my Dreamcast days (like there was really anything else). So, after playing Triple Play last year, I figured it was time for something new. I pitty anybody that got that game. I must say that my fist venture out of the EA titles has been a little disappointing as well.
