Conclusion: If you're sick of the big league baseball games then college ball is most likely you're best alternative. MVP 07 NCAA Baseball brings an intuitive control set to the table and enough modes to keep the fun going for a while. There are little flaws within the gameplay throughout but neither is enough to totally kill the experience.
Excerpt: After scooping up the coveted NFL videogame rights, EA Sports soon found itself shut out of the MLB license by rival 2K Sports. Rather than letting their MVP baseball franchise die on the vine, EA Sports restructured it as a collegiate baseball game. MVP 07 NCAA Baseball represents the series’ second year in the collegiate ranks, this year as a PS2 exclusive.
Summary: Cheerleaders, crowd chants, and team fight songs are elements that add to the atmosphere and realism of MVP 07 NCAA Baseball. There are now an increased number of conferences, teams and authentic stadiums, creating a true-to-life NCAA baseball experience.
Excerpt: Playstation 2, it was a major letdown. There are several words I could use to describe my emotions at that point, unfortunately, we like to keep things as PG as possible around here, so I’ll leave it at that. After taking several days to cool off, and realizing that my love for baseball would eventually win out, I decided to give EA Sports a chance. I’ve been doing it for years with another one of their sports titles, why stop now?
Summary: The new pitching mechanic breathes some new life into the aging but still very good MVP Baseball franchise.
Pros: Using the right analog stick to pitch feels fantastic, the analog-based hitting scheme works great, fun minigames, other than some quirks, the gameplay is top-notch, being able to play a few innings, simulate a few innings, and then resume playing is a nice feature
Cons: Presentation is still dull, not enough teams and stadiums were added, graphics are aging faster than Randy Johnson, fielding and throwing are sometimes funky
