What didn't you like? Because I have been partial to High Heat since its second year, but I've become very disappointed in that series.
You want a list?
1)The gameplay. Errors almost never happened, hits were too easy, striking people out was too easy. Not realistic enough.
2)The minor leagues. The box said "in depth minor league system". Nothing close to it. 15 players that fill a 40-man roster. Not even close to HH2004's actual minor league system.
3)Too easy. In 80 games I was 79-1. The only game I lost, eight of my pitchers were injured.
4)Stolen bases. If you dived in headfirst, you were safe.
5)Umpires. They were wrong a lot. I'd tag the guy well before he hit the base, and they were safe.
6)Rookie Draft. Not even close to realistic.
7)Simulation. Guys were hitting .400 with 100 HR's and 200 RBI, and their ratings were something like 40 for hitting (not good) and 80 for power (marginal).
I could give you more, but I think this is good enough for now.
