STAFF REVIEW of MLB Slugfest 2003 (Xbox)

MLB Slugfest 2003 Box art This is one of those games that I was expecting very little, but was really surprised by how good it is. I was amazed at the quality of graphics coming from this game. The stadiums and the players faces all look very realistic. I was even more surprised at how fun and easy the gameplay was. I also loved the sense of humor. The comments and animations are very funny. But a word of caution, if you are looking for a baseball simulation, this is not it (it's nfl blitz, fast paced style baseball). MLB 20-03 delivers a fast paced, fun, and often hilarious baseball game that is well worth it's bargain basement price. It's too bad this was overlooked by the masses when it came out.

I loved the gameplay. Batting and pitching is very easy, while still being fun. It's nothing to score 20+ runs a game, and the game is fast paced. It adds in some unique elements like the ability to punch or kick an infielder to attempt to jar the ball loose and advance a few bases. Get a few hits in a row, and you're on "fire", literally. Your player will scream in agony as they catch in flames, but then you can use unlimited turbo while batting or fielding. There are also tons of cheats available, which keeps things fresh. I can't think of anything to complain about, except that there is no create a team or player.

The graphics are a lot more than expected coming from this type of game. The stadiums and players look fantastic.

The announcers are hilarious. The comments they make are very funny, and I love the stuff they say during the initial loading screen. The rest of the sounds do the job.

Create a team, player features will be great (I hear they will be in 20-04's version!).

Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 10.0 / 10
Visuals: 10.0 / 10
Sound: 10.0 / 10
