    A killer combination of awesome controls and realistic details, proving to be much more fun than EA Sports' "Triple Play Baseball."
  2. If you are looking for the most authentic title on the market, then this is it.
  3. Some of the controls are a bit unorthodox and admittedly they take a bit of getting used to. Though once you get them down, you'll never want to play any other way.
  4. The game of baseball was more accurately depicted in High Heat than most any other baseball game I've seen...High Heat's superb control and outstanding gameplay should be enough for most any fan.

    The action on the field is also masterfully recreated with a variety of fly and ground balls that spin, curve and bloop just as they do in real life, not to mention the comical errors that happen when fielders try to reel them in.
  6. If you can tolerate the outdated-looking frosting, the gameplay cake underneath "HHB 2002" is yummy-enough to be had (visual warts and all).
  7. An embarrassment. When the players run bowlegged to field a ball, it’s hard to take this game seriously.

The pitching & hitting is very realistic, and I love the fact that players can be ejected and injured. The create a player and stats could have been compromised a lot better. At least they had the new cinergy field!! Expand

    They Could Have Made The Graphics A Little Better, and Could Have Added A home Run Derby Or Something To Make It More Fun To Play.
