Summary: I like to listen to peoples opinion but how did other reviewers give this game 5 stars? This is absolutely the worst baseball game if not the worst game period that I have ever played. The only positive thing about this game is that it is loaded with options, but other than that, it shoots straight downhill from there. First off, from the start the computer will always be better and faster than you no matter what level you choose to play (i.e. rookie, allstar, veteran).
Game has some serious problems and Acclaim does not care

Summary: I was very much looking forward to receiving this game based on reviews of the play. I love baseball and really wanted to find a realistic baseball game. Sadly, this game is not the game I thought it would be. Indeed, this game also has some serious technical problems that Acclaim does not seem to care about. First of all the problems- 1)When pitching on a count that is less than a full count, the batter fouls off the ball and yet the batter is out. What?!
Summary: This game has some great features. I had fun setting up a franchise and drafting a team, etc. Then, I started to play the games. It was then that I began to hate it. From the graphics, to the players, to the motion of the game, and especially the hitting, All-Star Baseball '04 is lame. Even EA Sports '02 is far better. I'll be selling this game and buying the new EA Sports baseball. I'm sure it will blow ASB away, and has most of the cool features, too.
