  1. I got a lot more of a simulation than I could have imagined.
  2. Play Magazine
    80
    Home Run King's secret lies in its easy to assimilate control mechanism and killer visuals. [April 2002, p.59]
  3. A game with fundamental flaws that limit its appeal to both the casual player and the ardent baseball guru.
  4. At the very least, this is nowhere near the zany, offbeat baseball game ads promise.
  5. 62
    Fast at points, tedious others, with a clear emphasis on batting, but no way to really direct one's hit angle or power.
  6. 60
    The gameplay is easy to grasp, but while good for some short-term fun, it ultimately falls short.
  7. An unwieldy pitching system and terrible fielding result in a twin killing for those expecting to connect with a fast-paced baseball game.
