Excerpt: It's tough to even imagine a game as reckless and outrageous as MLB Slugfest 2003, but Midway has been able to bring a baseball title that seriously packs in the action every way possible. Far surpassing the constructional simulation baseball game, Slugfest aims at giving players the most for their money, as they combine tremendous hitting abilities with pitching skills that'll make your head spin; it's an intense experience to say the least.
Excerpt: Midway's sports games do seem to have a knack for hooking me, at least slightly. Blitz certainly did it, despite me hating football games, Red Card did it, despite me liking soccer sims, and to an extent Slugfest 20-03 does it, even though I loathe everything about baseball with all of my being.
Excerpt: It's difficult to imagine an over-the-top version of a game paced as slowly and deliberately as baseball. While a slew of baseball games are released every year, to date there have been only a handful--Super Baseball Simulator 1.000 and Super Baseball 2020, to name a couple--that have attempted to bring some extra-added action and mayhem to this tactical sport.
