Summary: I've played ESPN MLB while i was renting baseball games while deciding which game to buy.I played ASB 2005 and i didn't like it.I played MVP 2004 and it was a good game.But when i played ESPN MLB I was hooked.I then knew what game to buy.I like the choices in uniforms you can use.the only thing that stunk was no Barry Bonds.
Summary: this game was a complete dissapointment. last years one was pretty good and realistic. but this year it got worse. the graphics are only average, controls are bad, and animations are unrealistic. almost any pitch you throw in the zone is a homerun against the good hitters. i can hit 4 homeruns in one game with one player and not even have to try hard. dont even rent this game. its NOT worth it.
Summary: It's better than I previously thought. In the past several weeks, cracked bats, intuitive AI, and really nice realistic baseball, games, scores, stats etc. And another thing, the LEGENDS team and stadiums are available at the get go......I don't have the time to play countless hours of videogames just to unlock Honus Wagner. MVP is ridiculous in this regard.
Summary: ESPN MLB Baseball is the best! It has a lot better graphics than MLB 2005, and ASB '05. One of the best parts this amazing game, is the First Person Baseball mode. With this, you could play a normal game through the eyes of any actual baseball player. Another part is the 3-D K-ZONE. This would tell you where the ball was thrown by the pitcher. The part I like the most is the pre-game show before any game.
Summary: MVP lacks a seasonal mode, and that's the main reason I buy a new baseball game each year. Outfielders struggle to find "reverse" when they bang their faces against the outfield wall, and the metered pitching system is tiring. The CPU starts warming up the bullpen in the 4th inning on a regular (and unbelievable)basis. And the inclusion of minor league teams is not something I care about, just like when EA's college basketball game used to have women's teams. Sorry.
Summary: I spent the past two years playing 3DO's High Heat, and was very disappointed to hear of their bankruptcy. Would there be a baseball game from the other companies that could compete? It didn't look good early on. EA Sports MVP Baseball has great graphics, but the gameplay (especially fielding) is clumsy, and the rosters are extremely inaccurate. 989 Sports' MLB 2005 has some decent features (the menu music features Black Eyed Peas and Jane's Addiction!
Summary: What makes this game the best of the main three(mvp, All-star baseball) is the REALISTIC GAMEPLAY. Graphics are fine but if the game looks pretty, but doesn't play well whats the point? Reasons why ESPN is the best on the market 1. Gameplay is real. I played MVP and the computer gets inside the park homeruns or a triple off of routine base hits(and there always in the gap).
Summary: First off, I was waiting for this one. I own ESPN's World Series 2003 and enjoyed it, but was hoping for more in 2004. Graphics: The graphics were not improved at all. Yes, they added mound visits, broken bats, but the image quality was no better. It bothers me that when the computer is changing pitchers the transition is not smooth at all. The screen freezes for 3-5 seconds.
Summary: So the graphics arent that great, but if your are just looking for that you need to pick a different sport. All the things that this game offers makes it one of the best games that you can buy. It is just like watching Sunday Night Baseball, except you are interactive with it. Plus it is updated, like A-Rod in pinstripes. I would certainly advise you to pick this game over any other.
