MLB Slugfest 20-03
4 Star Review  GameZone - Sep 13, 2002

I’ll have to admit that I was overly excited about Midway giving the game of baseball a somewhat extreme make-over, and after having played MLB Slugfest 20-03, the Boys of Summer just seem a lot more interesting when they’re on fire. Unlike the more serious baseball simulators out there, Slugfest 20-03 revamps the sport with a more tongue-in-cheek attitude and an emphasis on action. In this game, you are encouraged to play at your dirtiest and throwing a bean ball at a player is as easy as pushing the B button on the Xbox controller. Whether the other player will run across the field to punch out the pitcher or run to first base crying like a kid who just scabbed his knees is just one of the many surprises this game has in store for gamers.

Smack talk in the ball yard is all good.

3 Star Review   By member silentassassin47 - Sep 18, 2006   

Strengths: Arcade gameplay, simplicity

Weakness: not very deep, controls

If you played NBA Jam and NFL Blitz, you know what this game is all about. Everything about the sport is given a dose of fire. All the rules that slowed the game down is gone. And the sport has just become more physical. So will you enjoy this Midway arcade baseball. It depends. If you 're playing with a group of friends, you are bound to enjoy it for a while. If not, the game gets old fast. The biggest problem of the game is that the controls kinda suck, especially on the defensive side of the ball. You will never get a throw to the base you want no matter how precise you are. And base running in baseball game has been solved in this game. Overall, this is just a arcade baseball experience if you're not into the slower sim version.
