Cool Pitching & Batting Interface, But Nothing Else

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.
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.
Summary: The graphics are very good. But, the game play is terrible. There is no consistency to batting. Just when you've timed a pitch well and expect a great hit, it's a pop-up or a weak fly ball. And, hitting a home run is just too difficult.
Summary: I bought this game hoping that it would finally be THE great baseball game we have all been waiting for. Sad to say, I am still waiting. What's the deal with NO camera angle options...you get what they give you(and the angle for fielding SUCKS) and that's it!
Summary: For some reason this game came out a week in advance where I live, so I read up on Triple Play and ASB and by the reviews it seemed ASB was the better choice. However, I am fairly disappointed with the game.
Excerpt: I bought this game thinking it would live up to its name. The graphics couldn't get much better, but the bad controls take away from the fun. If you like to lose most of your games by several runs than this is the game to play.
Excerpt: On the CHRISTMAS day I received a playstation 2 and many games and all star baseball was one of them I played this game many times and still do sometimes the 3 main reasons i do not enjoy this game are, 1. Very slow 2. Very difficult 3.
