  1. The game’s simple batting and fielding controls make it easy on novices, while the in-depth pitching options give purists something to chew on as they cycle through a loaded arsenal of head-spinning tosses.

    The beautifully lit ballparks look great, and the solid audio nicely re-creates the ballpark feel.
  3. I liken Inside Pitch 2003 to a prospect whose been rushed to the big leagues. Sure, the potential for a star player is there, but the kid still needs to work on a few fundamentals before he can really make an impact on the rest of the league.

    The requisite Franchise mode and instant replays are foolishly MIA - what gives? The graphics also fail to impress, and trying to control more than one runner at a time gave me headaches. [June 2003, p.131]
  5. Only casual players with an undeniable urge to play online should be interested in the game as it is now.
  6. 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.

    IP 2003 is not the worst Xbox game ever developed, but it is certainly the worst Xbox baseball game. [June-July 2003, p.93]

    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. Expand
