Half of High Heat 2003's thrills come from its intuitive, playable controls. Fielding and baserunning are a snap (though manual slides would have rocked), and the pitching/batting setup is one of the best ever.
This game may have a Bulldog face that only its mother may love, but once you get past the mediocre graphics you will love it too. Its magnificent gameplay on the field and customizable options off it, make it the console baseball game to beat.
If you're anything like this reviewer, and your lookin' to have a good time (no, make that great time!) with a baseball game that emphasizes accurate game play with believable results once again, this year's version is the game to beat.
