  • Summary: As outstanding as the core elements of High Heat 2002 undoubtedly are, it's hard to emerge from an extended session of gameplay without some serious misgivings.

  1. I have to tell you that this game is one of those games, which makes you glad you decided to become gamer decades ago.
  2. There are problems that can and should be addressed, but the gameplay has no equal.
  3. The new features/graphics only ehnance what was already the best baseball game ever. [June 2001, p.64]
  4. If they fix most of what's wrong above, I'd estimate the actual Overall score would increase to somewhere in the 94-97 range. The game is THAT good and, unfortunately, THAT buggy.

    The graphics are mostly on par with this year's "Triple Play" entry, but some of the gameplay and animation feels a bit behind the venerable EA title.
  6. Some aspects of the game will really impress you; others will make you want to throw your monitor out the window.
  7. Its graphics and challenging gameplay make it more fun to be on the field than reading box scores.

    It is just one notch away from being perfect. One could only want more of it if the bugs could be smoothed out. Instead of adding so many new It is just one notch away from being perfect. One could only want more of it if the bugs could be smoothed out. Instead of adding so many new features, whatever bugs a game contains should be perfected. Only add one new perfectly tested feature to a game would make people come back repeatedly year after year. Istead 3do is turning people off with their poor integrity. Very unprofessional. However, thank you for the best game I have ever played 3do!! Expand

    The game is great but everytime I play for like an hour it will just turn off, and I won't be able to continue that season, but I can The game is great but everytime I play for like an hour it will just turn off, and I won't be able to continue that season, but I can start another season and it will work, and then the same thing will happen again and again. It can't be the computer because all of the other games work. Do you have any suggestions??? Expand
