Summary: The hitting interface in this game is awful. When the computer throws fastballs up in the corner or anywhere besides the target, then you can't hit it. What I do is wait for a pitch to come down the middle and swing the bat. I wish I could get my money back for this piece of trash. I mean, how fun is a game where you can't hit the ball??? Akklaim needs some help.
Summary: This game stinks. When you think you have a double they throw it in to the second base man and usually get you out.A lot of times when the ball is like ten yards down they usually make the catch unbelieveable!! this game is not worth the money.
Summary: I want that hour of my life back!!! It is darn near impossible to get base hits, let alone home runs! To top it all, I took a no-hitter to the bottom of the 9th and on the last pitch the game broke it up!!! DON'T BUY IT!!!!!
Summary: This is the most realistic Baseball game I have ever owned. The Franchise mode is amazing. The players look realistic and it really looks like you are playing baseball. There are a few problems. If you are in the lead the ather team comes back in the next few innings, so it is extremely hard to win. If you want a relistic baseball game then this is the one for you.
Summary: I for one was amazed with the game play of ASB 03. Since I am a huge baseball fan and like to see in depth material, this game offers it to u. The franchise mode is great as it always is with ASB. I recomend anyone who likes baseball to buy this game.
Summary: This game is very poor. The graphics are pretty decent until you look at the crowd, then you realize your just playing a video game with a matted crowd, ruined the game. Baserunning is impossible to master, its like, to advance a runner use triangle plus the direction of the base that the runner is on, and some other garbage. You always get out as well when this happens because the computer is actually really smart. Which leads me to my next con.
Summary: All Star Baseball is the best baseball game for PS2. But it still needs a little work. Pros: Excellent graphics Great Commentary Detailed Create-A-Player Expansion and Franchise mode Great Sim game Scores aren't always 26-20 like they are on Triple Play (the scores are usually something around 7-4) Mid-Windup Pickoff Attempt Future throw makes your throws get to the base quickly Broken Bats Mascots Cons: Batting Cursor is hard Hard to baserun Without the future throw, my...
Summary: Let me start out by saying that before you read any further go buy High Heat 2003. All Star 2003 might possibly be the worst, most annoying game I've ever played in my life....and I've played many many baseball games. For starters, there is NO way to shut off the auto instant replay!! And I'm not talking about replays after homers, I'm talking about the stupid replay they show every time a batter hits the ball....whether it's a home run or a ground ball to short.
The best PS2 baseball game still needs some tweaking

Summary: For realism, playability and sheer fun for baseball fans, Acclaim's All-Star Baseball 2003 is tops! As a gamer who always takes the tough road to victory by playing coach, this game offers a coaching mode that rewards good coaching and penalizes dumb coaching decisions. The graphics are excellent.
Summary: I gave this game 4/5 stars beacause there are good and bad parts about this game[more good parts] some of the good parts are franchise mode,fantasy draft, expansion mode,and the bonus stadiums these stadiums include Ebbets Field,Classic Yankee Stadium and Classic Wrigley Field!The bad parts are:first off it's too hard to play next it takes you a very long time to play a game and last you're either done playing a game or you're stuck playing it until you're done you can't...
