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: 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.
Summary: This game was very good because it has a lot of cool things to do. You can make up your own season and make lots of trades. There is also an option to just play an exhibition game. There are a lot of stadiums to pick from and a lot of real and fake teams to pick from.
Summary: This is the best baseball game on earth. It is even better than EA sport's MVP 2005. My friend has that game, and I tried it. That game stinked. It had bad graphics. It wasn't even realistic like MLB 2005. So instead of MVP 2005, buy MLB 2005. The reason is IT'S A BETTER GAME!A
Summary: Overall this game is an O.K. game. It's not the best. Here are some pros and cons. Pros - Graphics are very nice. Franchise and career modes are very fun. If you're like me and you don't want to play the whole season, you can just simulate it. Unlockable features can help your team very much.
Summary: I only gave it 4 stars because some of the calls aren't too good and plus they are somewhat strange... Being a ten year old, I think it should be better in graphics and you should not have to unlock allstar teams. Otherwise, I think it is a good game!
Summary: Unfortunately, this game is critically flawed. Basic baseball things can't be done. No check swings or wild pitches. I had a game in 1992 call Hardball II that could do these things. And it was on a single floppy. Can't tag a runner on a base line.
Summary: I havnt bought this game yet. But once a question is answered I'll probably buy it. For the SF Giants (my favorite team), is there Jason Schmit and Brett Tomko? Email the answer to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Summary: This game is just like watching comic book with bad humor. Pros: Clear. Sharp graphics (All Star was like dullest) Great Songs Great Broadcast views Nice Frachise mode so was career mode Easy to dive and catch the ball.
Summary: Overall the game is very fun. Many of the other reviews touch on some important pros and cons (no Barry Bonds, no Kevin Millar, lack of passed balls or wild pitches, etc). There's actually quite a lot more missing from the game.
