  1. It looks great, and more importantly, it plays great.
  2. Slugfest’s crowning achievement is the audio. It is absolutely, positively stunning, and I’d be hard pressed to find a better example of not only quality writing but a mix of subtle and flat our humor in a game.
  3. 83
    Brilliantly illustrated and animated, flawlessly announced, and a synch to get into, there is little holding the baseballer back.

    Perhaps the best thing about MLB Slugfest 20-03 is how well all the different elements come together to create a game that is both recognizably baseball and something you've never played before. The "extreme" additions work exceedingly well in the baseball setting.
  5. With all of the features and fun that Slugfest has, the game has a problem with longevity. After you have unlocked all of the extras there really isn’t much else to play for.
  6. 75
    The best looking baseball game on the market. [August 2002, p.44]
  7. This marriage of baseball and extreme attitude should be annulled.

    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. I play this game non stop. Expand

    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. Collapse

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