I don't want to play this game anymore.

  • Summary: First off the good things. The game is very involved. Graphics are fantastic. Depth of game is second to none. OK, now the bad stuff. Lose the incessant chatter of the announcers. Its the same stuff every game. (Do you want to be reminded every game that Marquis Grissom's dad named him after a car he was working on?)Half of their babble about the play of the game is actually wrong. Secondly, AI needs major work.

Acclaim tried a little too hard

  • Summary: Acclaims latest try at a baseball is nothing great or even average. The game had plenty of bonus features and special teams, cards etc. but misses on basic pieces to sports games that make them fun. Acclaim has always been somewhat of an overacheiver when it comes to games. They always seem to focus on one or two things and then miss the simple basic elements to a game that make them fun.

This game is not as good as its EA counterparts

  • Summary: This game is graphically wonderful and it has a wonderful user interface, its loaded with options and little treats like the cards and trivia but the gameplay is lacking and no-one else seems to have noticed. I have played over a season on it and hitting the ball is pot luck. This is the only complaint i have b ut it is fundamental to the game.

Dissapointing...you gotta get MVP 2003 instead.

  • Summary: After buying nearly every BB game on PS2 in 2001/2002 i was impressed with Acklaim ALLStarBaseball , ASB2002 was good, ASB2003 was great so of course i bought ASB2004. How dissapointed i was. The players dont look lifelike (cartoony) infact this aspect has gone backwards. The fielding is off the mark and overall things just dont "feel" right, batting, pitching and baserunning are weaker than previous versions.

Play it if you like pitching so much.

Andrew Francis, Amazon

  • Summary: This game left me extremely dissapointed. I thought that it might be a little better than the horrible 03 but its pretty much the same. The bad thing about this game is how it's almost impossible tro hit the ball. Oh yeah maybe the guess the pitch option (which stinks) might help if you know how to use it. How are they going to expect you ti hit the ball when it comes in 95 and you still have to get the batting triangle from the middle to the top or bottom.
