Although this game is not for everyone, it's safe to say that this year's High Heat will be a welcome addition to the game libraries of those who enjoyed last year's game. The gameplay is decent, many of last year's aggravating flaws are nowhere to be found, and the general feel of a baseball game is present. Unfortunately, the game's visual and audio quality remains far below what the competition offers, failing to bring about the same kudos that its PC counterpart is known for.
The game isn't all bad, however. In fact, the pitcher batter duel (which doesn't use a batting meter) is very well done, and requires players to read pitches like they'd have to in real life. This can't save the game from overall mediocrity, but it is a great foundation for the future.

Not making a heck of a lot of improvements, the second High Heat is just as obnoxious as the first. The player animations are frightening and the gameplay is a loose cannon - delivering obscure plays and way too many home runs.
