    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.
  2. The best baseball game on the market. [Apr 2002, p.102]
  3. HHB 2003 has it all. Good looks, great presentation, solid AI, fun unique game modes and plenty of style.
  4. While not the graphical grand-slam 3DO promised, High Heat 2003 is a fresh game, a better game than its predecessors and a worthy contribution to any digital slugger's collection.
  5. Runs circles around the competition thanks to its depth, wealth of options and intuitive controls.
  6. The fluidity of the player movements and how fast and distinctive the game plays out is very realistic and far surpasses anything currently available. This truly is the best simulation baseball game on the PS2.
  7. The lack of ability to control the pitch in the air is incredibly frustrating.

    One of the best sports gaming experiences I've ever had... honest. (and I've been playing sports games since the Mattel Intellivision).

    Although the game play is pretty good, ther are some unrealistic things that are annoying. Runners advancing 2 bases on a deep sacrifice fly? Although the game play is pretty good, ther are some unrealistic things that are annoying. Runners advancing 2 bases on a deep sacrifice fly? Also when you are playing in a season, you can only do one for one trades, and you can trade any player for any other player...i.e. a bench player for a Lance Berkman? It should be more realistic in that way. Expand
