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: 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. Perhaps Acclaim should remember that games are supposed to be FUN not frustrating.
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! Batting and pitching are overly complicated and very slow, fielding is a joke (outfielders are able to get to balls that are not even close to them and make the catch), and if you don't change your pinch-hitter, he...

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.
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. Many other games you can have a very good idea where you are going to hit the ball. If you want to hit a one hopper to center field, you can. In ASPB you can't. Being able to see the ball is a task in itself. Then swinging ...
