Summary: There have been many changes from EA Sports. The group switched its Triple Play series into an MVP Baseball series (which I found out in a cold night at Gamestop in 2002). Instead of pushing a button just to pitch, you have to time your release. You push the button coressponding to the pitch you want, wait untll it gets to the bottom, push it and finally push it again when it is in the green zone. The batting stances aren't that spectacular.
The feature, control, and gameplay aren't complete.

Summary: The gameplay is improved. But the realistic aspect of the game such as pitchers warm up, mount visits, automatic bases running lost in the game. The commentary is so boring and unreal. Those two men don't follow what happen in the game. Besides gameplay, the game also has a lot of problems that baseball fans don't like.
Summary: MVP Baseball 2003 is a fun game. What I like most about the game is that when you pitch, you can control of how accurate your pitch is going to be. When you select a pitch, there is an accuracy meter. There is a green section and blue esction of the accuracy meter. If you hit it on the green section, your pitch will be more accurate and most likely you will throw a strike.
Summary: I didn't think this game would be any good at all after playing the old triple play from ea sports, but I was wrong. It is great. It has a good sound track (like all the other ea games), good grahpics, and controls you can get used to. The total pitch control and Full swing control are nice. Very nice features are the picture-in-picture bases that make it easy to see what is going on. The franchise mode is not the best compared to others. But other than that a nice game.
Summary: what i liked: at least the graphics were good what i disliked: where's the fantasy draft? i can't edit players (which is particularly helpful for young prospects). thus, hank blalock's ratings will stay around 50 (in other words, he's useless) while blue jays ss chris woodward has a power rating of 88 (he may have 20 career home runs). a player will either post ruthian-like numbers or he will be completely inept.
Summary: This game is unlike any other game on the market right now. The gameplay feels very different from EVERY baseball game on the market right now. I could downrank the things they did wrong, but lets face it, they made this game in 1 year, did everything different from their previous game, so there is bound to be numerous mistakes, all of which will be addressed in the next game. I was literally in awe of how different they made this game compared to the others.
Summary: This game had alot of flaws(the less than perfect fielding, and the lack of a fantasy draft), but it's by far the best baseball game out there. The pitching interface and control is completely original and is the best I have come upon in any baseball game. The batting controls are realistically challenging(depending on what difficulty you play on), and you have to develop an eye for ball and strikes to be successful.
