Summary: This was a terrible backslide compared to Slugfest 20-04. I realize this series is basically a loving parody of "real" baseball games, but my friend and I, who have played Slugfest 20-04 for dozens of hours over the years when we hang out, pretty much hated this game.
Summary: This game is funny while still retaining to sports. I like the on fire and punching tags. The only thing stopping it from being a five star is the throws. The center fielder can throw home without a bounce.
Summary: Obviously the previous reviewer has never played Slugfest before, this is how it has always been a "street" style baseball game, including more mature / aggressive themes, the ability to attack other players, and urban-styled in-game commentary.
