Still, games in MLB SlugFest are not as fun as those in the console versions since the action is watered down. The fielding view is inadequate, pitching is slow and largely ineffective, and options are extremely limited. There's not even a full lineup of stadiums to choose from (only six), and passwords are used to save progress rather than battery backup -- so forget about tracking statistics. Yet the most irritating aspect is the lack of two-player support, which is inexcusable for a baseball game released in 2003. MLB SlugFest is a passable port with big, colorful players, crisp sound, and offensive-minded play, making each game a high-scoring affair. A poor view on defense, a dull computer opponent, and almost non-existent options undermine what could have been one of the better baseball titles on the system.
