    The graphics are great and franchise mode is a blast, but the gameplay is slow. The most irritating thing is that starting pitchers tire way to quickly. I have counted pitches and starters get worn out after only 30 or 40 pitches. The Yankees are impossible to beat even though they don't have any great players. Other than that the game is fun and is the best out there right now. I The graphics are great and franchise mode is a blast, but the gameplay is slow.

I have always been a Triple Play fan but this game took me away. Collapse

    The franchise mode is the only reason I'd ever play this game again. The gameplay makes me fall asleep. Can a game take longer? Also, the lack of bullpen skill really gets annoying. Mariano Rivera blew five five+ run leads in the ninth (COME ON!) This is game is fun if you're the type that would rather be the GM than the player. Other than that, play Ken Griffey Jr. Presents MLB The franchise mode is the only reason I'd ever play this game again. The gameplay makes me fall asleep. Can a game take longer?

    Graphics are great but, no-one can beat the Yankees, I lost after leading by 8 going into the ninth, some of it gets ridiculous, and is it necessary to only be able to play 9 innings I like a choice, overall a rental, and wheres the celebration for winning the series, thats a big let down as well.

    Very flashy, with a ton of features -- but the gameplay is s-l-o-o-o-o-w (and for that matter, BORING).

    All star baseball 2003 has the exactly the same features as in All star baseball 2002. I want some new features and gameplay.

  1. The gameplay really hampers the overall score of the game and probably prevents it from achieving what it is capable of.
  2. It's a more in-depth game than High Heat, which is why All Star moves slower and the games seem longer.
  3. All-Star Baseball 2003 has High Heat 2003 licked where graphics are concerned, and the inclusion of the franchise mode makes Acclaim's hardball simulation all the more enticing--[but] you can't go wrong buying either one.
