STAFF REVIEW of All-Star Baseball 2003 (Xbox)

All-Star Baseball 2003 Box art This is my least favorite baseball video game of all time. From the horrible pitching/batting interface to the flat graphics, this is one baseball game that succeeds in pitching an ugly slow ball down the middle of the plate that deserves to be slapped over the wall in dead center field.


I really hated the manual pitching/batter interface. You have a triangle shaped box that you try to move where the pitch is going and swing. You can do a power swing or contact hit. But, it just doesn't feel right and takes way too long to get a good feel for it. Fielding was also a pain. Nothing was intuitive.


This game is ugly. It's pretty sad when a baseball parody game like MLB Slugfest looks 20 times better in every department (stadiums, players, etc...). I thought ASB looked flat and boring.


Announcers and ambient fan noise was good. It's pretty hard to mess up the sound in a baseball game (but, I'm sure not impossible).


Suggestions:
Take a bat, apply to head. Repeat.


Overall: 4.0 / 10
Gameplay: 4.0 / 10
Visuals: 4.0 / 10
Sound: 7.0 / 10
