    A fun but underwhelming title thanks to a lack of replay value and miscellaneous quirks.

    Gorgeous, fast-paced and balanced enough to offer fleeting fun whenever it's booted up. [August 2002, p.126]

    A well-crafted game with some incredible graphics, but it gets old very quickly.
  4. One of the silliest baseball games ever and is one of few to have such a balanced combination of style, humor, and gameplay.
  5. If it weren't for the remarkable performance of the play-by-play duo this score would be much lower. If you can somehow master the entire manual switching and controlling, Slugfest might be a fun game. I just can't get over how frustrating the game was.

    This game gets very repetitive-- I don't understand why this got such high reviews. I can't stand slugfest.

    It's a really fun game to play and the A.I is actually good when you get to play the tougher teams. The Graphics are also really sharp.

This game stands with it's arcade predecesors of NFL Blitz and NHL Hitz. Full Review »

    This is the best game anyone could have made. Sometimes baseball gets boring videogame wise but this game gives you all the action you want. This is the best game anyone could have made.
