MLB SlugFest: Loaded is the only baseball videogame for the 2004 season featuring Midway's classic fast and furious gameplay with hard tags and over-the-top animations. This year's SlugFest features today's greatest baseball players and is "loaded" with over-the-top abilities, including turbo-speed running, highlight reel-worthy fielding, earth-shaking collisions and, as one would expect from a Midway Sports(TM) title, the ability for a player to catch fire and turbo charge the game action. The game also features online play for both PlayStation 2 and Xbox and Loaded is the first ever game to incorporate Microsoft's new Xbox Live 3.0 features.
"MLB SlugFest: Loaded is the most in-depth product in our successful baseball franchise," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "By adding the deepest franchise engine available with Baseball Mogul®, a full online mode, and even more classic, over-the-top gameplay than ever before, this year's SlugFest truly lives up to its 'Loaded' name."
