  1. Nintendo Power
    The pitching engine makes both pitching and hitting very realistic. [May 2002, p.134]
  2. A game with fundamental flaws that limit its appeal to both the casual player and the ardent baseball guru.
  3. The complete antithesis of "All Star Baseball 2003." It relies on tons of big hits and arcade action in general to keep its brand of baseball interesting.
  4. Cleaner looking than "Triple Play," but lacking solid mechanics in the pitching and fielding.
  5. HRK has High Heat beat in graphics, but its gameplay lags way behind.
  6. A foul-tip among baseball games, Sega should have taken a vastly different direction from Acclaim’s sim series if it wanted to succeed with a truly arcade take on the sport.
  7. At the very least, this is nowhere near the zany, offbeat baseball game ads promise.
  8. 65
    It's a good overall game, but could have been a refreshing title had it redirected its focus and gone all out in either direction -- sim or arcade.
  9. 62
    Fast at points, tedious others, with a clear emphasis on batting, but no way to really direct one's hit angle or power.
  10. No matter how many games I played, I regularly gave up shallow bloop and in-the-gap inside-the-park homers because I couldn't gel with the computer's logic of who should be fielding the ball.
  11. 60
    The gameplay is easy to grasp, but while good for some short-term fun, it ultimately falls short.
  12. Game Informer
    The gameplay formula [is] a complete and utter catastrophe. [May 2002, p.84]
