  • Summary: MLB SlugFest: Loaded is on-fire, in-depth and online baseball. "On-fire" means that gamers will get more over-the-top moves, more control on the mound, more options at the plate, more outrageous commentary from Tim Kitzrow and Jim Shorts than ever before. "In-depth" means that we've added arguably the deepest Franchis Mode ever in a baseball videogame. And "Online" means that the best multiplayer baseball game is ready for the largest multiplayer audience there is, world-wide. MLB SlugFest: Loaded is here... Get out of my way! [Midway] Expand

  1. Visually, the SlugFest series has always looked damn good...And SlugFest just wouldn't be SlugFest without the antics of Tim Kitzrow and Jim Shorts. Together they have some of the funniest play-by-play I've ever heard. [June 2004, p.71]
  2. If you thought Slugfest was a little too childish or simple, you’ll enjoy the new changes like the franchise mode. We’ll all enjoy the new online gameplay, though.
  3. The online play keeps the game fresh and the franchise mode, while obviously a far cry from those present in other more realistic baseball simulations, is still an admiral effort and a nice side order to an already delicious meal.
  4. Adding live online support and a fantasy-league “Mogul” mode that lets you trade players, track stats, and haggle over TV rights? OK, we’re really psyched.
  5. This is an arcade blast based on timing and violence, and it’s a ton of fun if you don’t approach sports games as simulations of the real thing. This is a videogame in every sense of the phrase.
  6. Sure I still prefer the sweat simplicity of the old school style of ball, but it’s been a while since I’ve had this much fun playing a baseball game.
  7. It flat out fails to cash in on its unique take on Major League Baseball. The Slugfest version of the game is dull and annoying.
