Summary: I rented All Star Baseball 2002 by Acclaim as everything I've read thus far puts it ahead of the other two baseball sims available on the market, but let's hope the reviews I've read were wrong, because there's not much here that I liked about the game. I will note that I'm writing this review after playing it for an hour and a half against my roommate.
Summary: I am a baseball enthusiast, and I was so excited when All Star Baseball came out two years ago for the n64, I was one of the first to buy, and loved it. I got into the season about 85 games with my friend, and then the file was corrupted, and was so dissapointed. So I waited for the ps2 version to come out, and it was TERRIBLE. The players don't matchup with the ball in the field (ie.
Summary: Awesome. This is the top baseball game i've played so far. The graphics are stunning, and the controls are easy to master. In Create-A-Player, there are many different accessories to choose from, like blue batting gloves and Red gloves. The pitches for pitchers are cool too. They have the usual pitches, like Curve and Change Up, but they also have pitches like the Knuckle Curve, Slurve, Cutter, Circle Change, and Fork.
Summary: Compared to other baseball games ,the grafics are good ... The game dificult is average .. If your a baseball fan you will love the oportunity to build a championship team , playing a full 162 game season , and keeping the stats of every member of your team..
Summary: After reading everyone's reviews, I went ahead and bought this game. The starting menu's are vague and difficult. Trading players is awful. Granted, when I started my first game, as the visiting team, and my leadoff batter came to the plate, I thought they had made up for it. The detail was amazing, but batting was uncomfortable. Then, when it was my turn in the field, I was shocked. It was like I was playing Bases Loaded for Nintendo! What is with these camera angles?
Summary: All Star Baseball 2002 is the best game ever. You will not belive the game. It looks like your at a real baseball game. They have all the new players but not Ichro. Also, the statdium as such good detial that the fans are moving and in the ballpark that have waterfalls you see them good. Also, at Arizona Feild if you land a homer in the pool you see it in it. In this game the yankees have Mike M and Alfonso Sorino. You get evry palyer.
Summary: This game is a winner and you will be back night after night. Im a die hard Triple Play fan and this game has as many flaws as TP, however it gets over it with good gameplay. Im not interested so much in graphics as much as reality. As mentioned by others u wont get 70-80hr seasons like TP. I took the Giants thru a season and ended Bonds with 62hrs, with only 1HR in last 10 games.
Summary: ..... it could have been better. As for all the people who complained about the flaws here i disagree. The fielding aint THAT hard. You'll get the hang of it when you start playing the game a lot. Also i heard some1 complain that u cant choose jerseys during a season. Well you're right, but then again thats what exhebition is for isnt it? I mean this game has real cool but it has some flaws. I think the home run derby is horrible.
