I didn't see any individual review threads for this game, and the search function is currently disabled, so here is my review of HH 2004. I've been playing this game a lot for the past week, and think that it is the best baseball game that I have ever played. But I had to tweak a lot of the settings and game options before I really got the game to play the way I like. Before I do my review, I am going to talk about all the settings that I have changed. Pitch Speeds: If you go into the tuning menu, you can adjust the speeds at which the players run, throw, pitch, etc. The first time I played the game I felt that the pitching was too slow and too easy to hit. I bumped up the speeds for each of the individual pitches from about 50% all the way up to about 80%. This makes the game more challenging, but still playable, IMO. The Action Camera: This is my biggest gripe with the game. The action camera is turned on by default, but is very annoying. Any time the ball approaches one of your players, whether it be a throw, a grounder, or a fly ball, the camera zooms in on that player. This is especially frustrating when you have a runner caught in a pickle, since the camera zooms in on the fielder and you have no idea where the runner is. This can be easily turned off by going into the "Home/Visitor Settings" menu, but I have not figured out a way to save it so that the action camera is always turned off. I have to turn it off everytime I start a new game, which is kind of a pain. Game Options: I have to make a few adjustments to this menu everytime I play as well (again, you can't save these settings, WTF). I bump up the game speed from normal to fastest. This just speeds up the pace of the game, by not showing the infielders throwing it around the horn, etc. I also turn on the pitcher warm up option, which forces you to warm up pitchers in the bullpen before you bring them in. Now for the review: Graphics: The graphics are really not that bad, and don't take away from the game at all. Some of the individual player models, batting stances, pitching techniques are perfect. (See Gary Sheffield, Barry Bonds, Mike Mussina) Other player models are pretty generic. The player faces aren't that spectacular. Gameplay: I just continue to be impressed with the gameplay of this game. Everything seems to timed so well. Baserunner speeds, arm strength of outfielders, etc is PERFECT. Try scoring from second on a basehit to right when Vladimir Guerrero is out there. Not gonna happen. Sac flys, sac bunts, double plays, hit and runs, going first to third on a hit to the outfield. I've seen Alex Rodriguez make a diving play in the hole, throw the ball from his knees to first, where the first basemen scooped it out of the dirt for the out. Incredible. I am amazed at how well all the subtleties of the game are executed in this game. If you are really a fan of baseball, this game will have you grinning from ear to ear. Franchise Mode: Unfortunately you can only have one franchise going at a time. I started a season with my roomate where we did a fantasy draft. You can choose a few salary cap options, whether it be market size (your team gets a salary cap equal to how big it's city is), the same cap for every team, or a variable option where you pick how much money you want. We have already played through a whole season (we simmed all the games against the computer, and played all the games against eachother in the same division). Our teams finished in last and second to last in the AL East, so I guess we've got some work to do. But in the offseason, we were able to promote people from the minors, sign free agents, and make trades. This game has plenty of game modes to keep anybody busy for a long time. If they could find a way to fix the issues I have with saving game data, I wouldn't have any complaints about this game. Highly recommended if you are a baseball fan.
