Product Description

Amazon.com

While improving on the graphics of previous PlayStation installments in the series, High Heat Major League Baseball 2002 looks to retain and even improve its reputation for realistic simulation. Player models, stadiums, and other in-game visuals have been totally redesigned, but they haven't thrown the baby out with the bath water. The game builds on the features of the much-acclaimed PC versions, such as adjustable skill levels for the game's athletes, unusual errors (like balks), bullpen warm-up routines for your relief staff, and realistic baseball physics (as opposed to the long-ball arcade play of other titles).

4.0 out of 5 stars Real Baseball/Not Home Run Derby April 24, 2001
This game is not flashy at all. There are no players running around the bases flipping there bats as they hit their 5th homer of the game (Triple Play/MLB 2001). This game is baseball simulation at its best. The computer can beat you 12-5 on one day, and you can beat them 3-2 the next. The graphics are not great, neither is the play by play, but the players run, throw, hit, and field very real. You can actually score a man from 2nd base on a single. The good pitchers get people out if you work the hitters, while the subpar pitchers struggle to retire the heart of a good team's batting order. Unlike other baseball games, you can actually draw a walk, hit and run effectively, and steal a base with a good runner. The game has a season mode which allows you to promote/demote players among your active roster and your 10-12 minor league players that have actual names of real minor leaguers. For instance, the Yankees minor league players on the game include Soriano.Lilly,Keisler,NJohnson, and Tessmer. This is great b/c sometimes your team will suffer injuries and you can promote one of those guys to take their spot on the roster. Another plus to this game is the stat tracker. The game tracks stats for everything. League Leaders in almost every imaginable category are available. Also, your players go on hot streaks, cold streaks, and even PMartinez is beatable if you can scratch a run or two and shutout the other team. If you like real baseball with real gameplay and are willing to sacrifice some graphics and are willing to put up with subpar announcers, this is real baseball.

4.0 out of 5 stars tremendously accurate, but graphically horrific April 7, 2001
As far as HH2K2 goes, it is the same story as last year: if you're looking for a fun, quick-playing, homer-friendly game that will impress your friends and have you racking up basketball scores, then this is NOT your game. This is a more simulation-oriented attempt at baseball, for those who really don't mind subpar graphics if the gameplay is reasonably accurate.
And, WOW, are the graphics in this one POOR! Egads. I played an exhibition game at the new PNC Park, and the Pittsburgh skyline was comprised of the largest, blockiest polygons I have seen since the days of Earl Weaver Baseball for PC on an ancient EGA monitor. But, if you could put up with last year's mess of a graphics display, then you should be able to stomach this year's model.
Though the back of the box is hilarious. It touts "slamming new tunes" which are nothing more than short snippets of stadium music whenever a decent player comes up to bat, and a "completely overhauled graphics engine" which is ludicrous, as anyone who played Sosa's High Heat 2001 can easily see that the graphics remain 90% unchanged. We're talking pixels as big as donuts here.
There are some minor improvements: there is more animation now so the players seem slightly less wooden, a slightly improved play-by-play job, and some slightly improved in-game snippets of music and sound. Also, the menus are streamlined and easier to follow. And for the purists: YES you can pull a double switch, but NO you cannot warm up pitchers.
Personally, buying anything that says "Triple Play" on it is NOT an option. I, as a longtime baseball fan, simply cannot stomach a game where I can homer twice in the same game with the starting pitcher. Is HH2K2 pretty? Absolutely not.

4.0 out of 5 stars High Heat gets High Marks August 9, 2002
i must admit, at first, i wasn't too crazy about this game the first few times i played it....but then, it all came together. wow! this game is great....the graphics are horrible, but the gameplay kicks major butt.
the hitting interface is the best i have ever experienced. you actually have to "go with the pitch" if you want a hit...the ball is coming in low? directional button down, and swing with "x" button...high heat? directional button up and swing with "x". fielders are awesome....diving snares in the infield...sliding catches in the outfield....great stuff. plus, you can edit any existing player: give him a different name, change his strengths and weak spots, etc. the ONLY thing i would complain about is the fact that the pitchers run out of gas pretty quickly....i have yet to get past the sixth inning with my starters. other than that, this game is simply fantastic. i used to be Triple Play diehard fan....but Triple Play got old so fast....the big home runs every other batter...boring hitting patterns...High Heat does not cater to the ARCADE baseball videogame fans...it caters to the fans who like their baseball-sims REAL. hopefully i can bring Chicago a World Series with the Cubbies!! High Heat is slammin'!!
