I updated every section of this Mini FAQ.

Version 1.1
I added a review sent in by a friend of mine. See the review
section to read it.

6/8/99
Version 1.0
Welcome. I have decided to write this FAQ as a sequel to my
original "Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball" FAQ written a few months
ago. I think that Slugfest isn't quite the game that the first
one was, but it is still a fun sports game to play.

-----------------------
2) Playing
-----------------------

Pitching
Pitching is extremely easy. At the beginning of the game, you'll
see a box that displays which pitches your pitcher can throw, along
with which buttons you press to do so. You can then change the
location of the pitch by moving the box inside the blue square.
Anything in the blue square will be a strike; anything out of the
blue box will be a ball.

Hitting
Hitting becomes harder in this game. Instead of a circle to follow
the pitch with, you get this weird-shaped blue box with a power
point on it. If you hit the ball right on the power point (which
is marked with a + sign) you will get a solid hit. Otherwise, 
you'll swing and miss or get a lousy hit.

Fielding
Fielding is the easiest aspect of the game. On a ground ball,
you run to pick it up (analog stick) and press the C button
that corresponds with the base you wish to throw to:

C-Down: Home Plate
C-Right: First Base
C-Up: Second Base
C-Left: Third Base

Just think of a baseball diamond:

                      Second Base (C-Up)
		               /\
                              /  \
                             /    \
		            /      \
                           /        \
		          /          \
                         /            \
    Third Base (C-Left)	 \            / First Base (C-Right)
 		          \          /
  		           \        /
   		            \      /
    		             \    /
     		              \  /
      		               \/
                    Home Plate (C-Down)

Diving plays will require you to hit A+Any C-Button. You can
use this as an infielder to dive for a ball going into the outfield,
or as an outfielder to jump for balls going over the fence.

5) Review
-----------------------

This review was sent in by my friend, "The Stinger." 
(stinger2307@yahoo.com)
I have his permission to use it.

When MLB with Ken Griffey Jr. first came out (I'm talking 
about the first one) I immediately went to the mall and 
bought it being the huge baseball fan that I am. I went 
home and started playing, and I had a blast. It kept me 
playing for months and months, until I heard that a new 
one called Slugfest was coming out. When I first read about 
it, I was told how the game has been advanced from the first 
one to the second one. I couldn't wait to get it, and of 
course, I once again did buy it immediately. However, when 
I got home this time, I wasn't as impressed..... In fact, I 
was dissapointed.

Graphics: 10/10
I will give it up for this department. The graphics in 
this game are great. The platers look real, the appearances 
of the stadiums is incredible (the same exact thing as real 
life) and the menu graphics were spectacular.

Sound: 6/10
Like the first game, the sound isn't that great. It's 
not that the sound isn't clear, it's just that the music 
is repeated over and over again, which eventually becomes annoying.

Game Play: 5/10
Here's what I thought was the dissapointment of the game. 
When you step into the batters box, you are expected to 
hit the ball with a weird shaped oval-like cursor. This 
is difficult and becomes frustrating when you can't hit 
the ball. Also, the view from the pitching mound has been 
changed, in my opinion, to a worse camera angle. Instead of 
being right behind the batter as if you are the catcher, 
you watch from behind the pitcher. This makes it difficult 
to tell where the ball is going to end up if the batter makes 
contact, which, like hitting, will be very frustrating if 
you keep making errors that cost you the game.

So what am I saying? Well, if you're a baseball fan, go pick 
this game up. All the players and teams have been updated and 
it is strictly all baseball. However, if you are not a baseball 
fan and simply want a fun baseball game to play, go buy 
MLB with Ken Griffey Jr. (the first one) because the game is, 
in a word, more fun.
