  1. Clearly the weakest baseball offering of the year. However, it's the only one that's online, and playing online can be fun.
  2. The gameplay, graphics and audio all cast the stench of unfinished, rushed junk. It is sad that this was the only Xbox baseball game to get online play as I would really love to play quality baseball online.
  3. In all sports games, but especially baseball, long-term engagement involves such fundamentals as tracking statistics, drafting players, and building successful teams. ISP2k3 fails to provide this.

    IP 2003 is not the worst Xbox game ever developed, but it is certainly the worst Xbox baseball game. [June-July 2003, p.93]
  5. With no franchise mode, the game lacks. Yes, you can create your own team but what is the point for one season.
  6. This is basic no-frills baseball. The presentation is filled with mediocrity and the lack of a franchise mode and decent AI just kills the game's entertainment value. It's the NFL Fever of baseball titles - a shallow baseball game.

    This is one of my favorite games. I consider it to be the best baseball game for the XBOX. The stadiums and player animations are top notch. This is one of my favorite games. I consider it to be the best baseball game for the XBOX. The stadiums and player animations are top notch. In addition, the pitcher/batter interface is extremely addictive. Unfortunately, it seems to be missing replays and players in the dugout. Though this doesn't take away from the gaming experience. The game is a true simulation with a bit of flare. I highly recommend purchasing Inside Pitch 2003. Full Review »
