Summary: Nice game to play, best yet the announcers are great. But one con is... You can't practice your swings before the picther throws the ball Overall I give this MLB 2005 a B+ Rating I also love the homerun derby, takes practice swinging though...
Summary: Why don't these companies give the game to even one fan before they release the game? The manual for this game is non existant so you have to guess how to play. Apparently there are "fantasy" players like Babe Ruth, I have no idea how to unlock them. Ok, 5 man pitching roster sucks. You have to warm up your bullpen but it takes a whole inning and you can't stall like in real life. You can't put in new players.
Summary: This game is great if your a big fan of the MLB Baseball video games for the playstation. The graphics are pretty good, and so is everything else. Also online play is fun too. If your looking for a good baseball game with in-depth gameplay, look no further, cause MLB is a hit out of the park!
Summary: The "real" life attributes are off a little on some players, but the graphics are strong. The game play is a little harder to master, which I like. I have not yet used the EyeToy to create a player, but the new option sounds great. Love the game so far.
Summary: Very solid for the price. This is the best baseball game I have ever played. And I've played two nintendo games, three playstation one games, and another playstation 2 game. I must say that this is a great game. The Franchise mode is simply amazing. You can set promotions like free program night, newspaper ads for players or your team. Talk about total control. You get to set the ticket and concession prices.
Summary: 989 Sports has certainly brought their game to the table with their latest effort, "MLB 2005." The graphics are top notch and the details (use of color, definition, etc) make this one of the best baseball games available. Where the 2004 version seemed more like a PS1 game, the 2005 version definitely looks at home on the PS2. All of the stadiums look great and even include the new parks in Philadelphia and San Diego.
Summary: Like so many of us, I have never been a fan of 989 Sports games but, after reading some pretty positive reviews of this game, I thought I would give it a try. Boy, I'm glad I did! The graphics, commentary & gameplay is so much deeper than MVP. The defense is smartly designed and the baserunning is much smoother, both in execution and in response, than the EA model. About the only part of this game that is still "in review" for me is the hitting. It's hard to hit, period.
Summary: Review #1: (Written in the same format as most 10-12 year olds) OMG this game is awsome! You can hit the bal far and creat players that are really strong and good! I mad a player who hit 142 homeruns! This is the bst baseball game ever! Buy itnow! My Mom did! Review #2: (For people who actually want to know whether this is a good game or not) The MLB series used to suck. Bad. Big time.
Summary: I'm a baseball fan and a hardcore gamer. Seeing as though I could care less about any other pro sports aside from baseball, I await March for my yearly sports gaming fix like an addict. Since the beginning of March, I have run the entire gamut of baseball games for all 3 consoles. I started my gaming season with MVP 2004. As far a thorough disappointment goes, MVP hits a grand slam.
Summary: I have played three of this years baseball titles and this one is the one that has the least glitches in my opinion. I could only play ESPN Baseball for about a half an hour because of the shoddy swing mechanics and the awful graphics. MVP has a great presentation and the best pitching/batting interface but too many things keep it from exceling such as slow outfielders, no wind in stadiums , and baserunners who never steal.
