Product Description

From the Manufacturer

World Series Baseball 2K3 marks the multi-platform debut of last year's must-have Xbox baseball title. The "King of Diamonds" returns stronger than ever and poised to make a run at a Yankee-like dynasty as it heads to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. And, just like the Bronx Bombers, WSB 2K3 spent the offseason improving what was already THE baseball franchise by adding an all-new ESPN broadcast presentation, more classic uniforms for every team, player-specific batting stances and pitching styles for Hall of Fame players, and historic ballparks. WSB 2K3's unrivaled gameplay gives users what they asked for, including: a jump button for home run-robbing snatches and line drive-snaring grabs, user-controlled leadoffs, drag bunts, improved double play animations, power swings, and more. This year, WSB 2K3 is in a league of its own!

World Series Baseball 2K3 Features

  • Classic Ballparks - Take the field in some of baseball's most historic ballparks including: The Polo Grounds, Forbes Field, Shibe Park, Crosley Field, and Griffith Stadium.
  • More Retro Unis and Alternate Tops - Classic home AND away unis and alternate tops for every MLB team.
  • Hall of Fame Legends - Play as or against over 25 Hall of Famers featuring player-specific batting stances and pitching styles for the greatest to ever lace 'em up including: Bob Gibson, Mike Schmidt, Rollie Fingers, Stan Musial, and more.
  • New and Improved Animations - Home run-robbing snatches at the wall, line drive-snaring grabs, new double play turns, beaned batters charging the mound, drag bunts and even more player-specific batting stances and pitching styles.
  • Enhanced Gameplay - User-controlled leadoffs on the basepaths, power swing for aggressive hitting, and an all-new jump button for even more control in the field.
  • Weekly, Monthly and Season Awards - Multiple awards are up for grabs, from Player and Pitcher of the Week/Month honors to the serious hardware, including: Rawlings Gold Glove, Louisville Silver Slugger, Rookie of the Year, and MVP.
  • ESPN Broadcast Presentation - True to the sports fan, player introductions, game highlights, replays, scores, and more are displayed in the famous ESPN style.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy with my decision.... April 15, 2003
Like many of my fellow Baseball fans, I wasnt sure what game to buy this year. But I finally made a decision based on various reviews and got WSB 2k3.
For me I need a game that is as realistic as possible stat wise and AI wise. The graphic arent that really important, but I dont want something that doesnt even make an attempt at looking..good.
But 2k3, was a pleasant surprise. The graphic are good, the stadiums are very impressive, the players are...ok. The frame rate that people have complained about soo much, I havent seen yet.
AS for the rest of the game. Well let me explain this. I am playing a season with the Indians, and I was playing my 3rd game against the "O's". It was 3-4 O's up, and come the 8th inning they put in their setup man, and then come the 9th they put in their closer. I was pleasantly surprised that the AI was smart enough to put in a closer and setup man in the correct situations.
ANother aspect I like, is the time off factor. Again since I am the Tribe, I have Elis Burks, and if you know him , ya know he cant play everygame. SO if you dare do so, he will go down on an injury or if you over play him he just wont be able to produce. That is just one little thing I really like about this game.
The game is EXTREMLY deep as in manager and stats. You control every aspect when it comes to your lineups and Minors, and contracts and everything else! it is really impressive
One thing I dont like is that the managers are fabricated, and you cant change the names. Like whats a game if you cant see Pinella freaking out and gettin thrown!
Oh well. I like the game and I think I really made a good choice. If you are a guy who likes stats, and baseball played "correctly" I would get this game

5.0 out of 5 stars Best all-around baseball game this year April 18, 2003
By A Customer
World Series 2k3 has the best gameplay I've seen since Triple Play 2001 (the only good version of Triple Play). A friend and I sampled WS2k3 and EA's MVP. While MVP has a challenging (and fun) pitching interface, World Series has the best all-around gameplay.
Some features that World Series has, and MVP doesn't:
-WS has a timed hitting mode, which, for me, is the most realistic way to hit. You don't have to guess where the ball is going to be pitched (and if the pitch is anywhere else, [you'll miss]), you just time your swing and try to go with the pitch.
(Also, you can turn off all the interface graphics for both pitching and hitting, so you don't have to play a cat-and-mouse game with the cursors, like you're playing Missle Command, or something.)
-WS has manual leadoffs.
-WS has manual dives (I may be wrong, but I don't think MVP has manual dives).
-Realistic fielding. The fielding in MVP is atrocious.
One word of warning:
Even if you're new to the game, the normal pitching velocity is very slow and hard to time. You need to adjust the pitch speed to "Very Fast". Very fast is actually easier to hit and seems more realistic than "Normal" or "Fast".

4.0 out of 5 stars No question - this game is the best out there... April 22, 2003
By A Customer
Thankfully I rented High Heat, which many say is the best game out there. There is simply no competition - World Series 2K3 blows this title away in every respect.
As someone who was driven away from baseball games by the bazooka home runs and intelligence-insulting ease of Triple Play a few years back, I can honestly say that World Series 2K3 is the game we've been waiting for since Tony Larousa on SEGA. The graphics are fantastic, the gameplay is smooth, and the Franchise/stat tracking is solid. Finally there's a baseball game with the same realism of Madden.
When the only thing you'd change about a game is its use of the analog stick over the directional pad, you've got a game you can stick with. You won't be disappointed with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars WSB Coming Out on top February 28, 2003
By A Customer
I've had a chance to play it and I'm lost for words. This is by far the best baseball game ever produced. It has incredible graphics and gameplay, including a deep franchise mode which will keep you busy all year long. The AI has improved deeply the games are much more realistic and fun. They've added new retro players and ballparks, including uniforms. This game is #1 and belongs in your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Baseball at it's best June 27, 2003
By A Customer
If you are looking for a baseball game then this is it. This game has everything. Let's start with the graphics. On a scale of 1-10 I would give them an 8. The ball parks are beautifull and very detailed. The player likeness as far as hitting stances and pitching motions are right on. However, Nomar looked like Nomar but Manny didnt really look like Manny. Double plays are very smooth and they very depending on the situation of the play. The stats in this game are insane. You have all your typical year to year stats but you can also challenge all time records. Want to beat Bonds 73 home runs record..... you can. Want to challenge Nolan Ryans all time strike outs in a season...... good luck. I can't even get into all the stats this game covers. Pitchers can have winning streaks and hitters can have hittings streaks which you will be made aware of through out the season. The management mode is also insane. I started a franchise mode and the very first thing I had to do was hire a coaching staff. I simulated a season so I could simple check out how the draft and free agent system works..... very cool, very detailed and very realistic. As a matter of fact, after the season players retired, of course, however some of them where intucted into the 2004 Hall of Fame...some guy named Roger Clemens was inducted. It even has a "loyalty" based system. If you continually shop a guy around for a trade or continually try to snow ball him on contracts, or routinely lose games, eventually he'll ethier ask for a trade or will refuse to re-sign with the team. It's the little things, those little details that make games fun and this game is full of them. I'm leaving out a lot of stuff and I'm sure I havent even seen everything myself. I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed if they gambled and just went out and bought this game. The only thing it's missing is Sosa's corked bat.......I think.
