  1. The presentation is still some of the best of any baseball title.
  2. With the colorful commentary and hard hitting action, those who plan on using the multiplayer modes won’t want to miss it.
  3. Great controls and well-implemented action features, like punching and turbo, that add a different type of depth than that seen in typical baseball games. [May 2003, p.78]
  4. Due to good physics modeling, sharp AI, and spot-on controls, no amount of wonky pitches and fiery players, watery stadiums, and moronic (if hilarious) commentary can detract from the solid gameplay.
  5. 79
    As off-the-wall arcade sports spoofs go, this is still king of the hill ... or is that mound?
  6. It's not baseball. Slugfest is "NFL Blitz" with bats... If you know what you're getting going in, you'll have a blast. [Apr 2003, p.65]
  7. It's baseball done for the mindless MTV generation, and it smells like a turd polished to a high gloss. [Aug 2003, p.88]
