  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. The gameplay remains fun and humorous yet it features all the modes and licensing you would expect from the more serious games including a new serious mode of play.
  3. A fun game chock full of interesting new elements and unlockable goodies, but it would drive any serious baseball fan absolutely batty, so I’d say if you’re into the in-depth, detailed gameplay you should give this one a swing and a miss.
  4. Coming back to commentary once again are the hilarious team of Tim Kitzrow and Jim Shorts. These guys are two of the funniest commentators I've ever heard.
  5. Easily the most original baseball title I've ever seen.

    The concept is cool, but i don't like the pitching. There's not enough control and the batter can hit it no matter where you place The concept is cool, but i don't like the pitching. There's not enough control and the batter can hit it no matter where you place it (unless you purpusefully bean them). The graphics are decent, but can't compare to mvp. Fielders are also frustratingly slow to react - they are stuck in place for a few seconds before you're allowed to move them. the game is fun, but only borderline worth owning imo. Full Review »
