Summary: It's truly refreshing to find a Baseball game I can actually enjoy. Most I have played lack realism, or have fiddly controls. EA Sports have done an excellent job making this game fun to play, with a nice and easy learning curve. Here are the Pros: * Controls. By far the most important aspect of the game, the pitching controls are espically very well implemented. * Realism.
Summary: I really enjoyed playing this game the first time I got it, but...there still are some annoying things in here. I own MVP Baseball 2003 which was a big improvement from the Triple Play Series, but that doesn't really mean that the game was good itself. Now MVP 2004 has gotten rid of the majority of the glitches and whatnot, to make this a truly great game with almost flawless gameplay. The thing that really bothered this game from being perfect is that;(1).
Summary: I have had this game since the first week it came out and have played exactly 30 games in MLB plus all the AA and AAA games. Let's say I have about 90 games of experience so I know what I'm talking about in this review. I also played about 250 games of MVP 2003 so I know the differences between these two games. First of all, let me tell you that some of the reviews can be missleading.
Summary: I really enjoy this game, it is one of the best console baseball games I have ever played. The gameplay is very solid, and challenging. You won't win everygame on the 2 hardest level and it goes all the way up to 4 levels. I bought mine for Gamecube though, and it has some drawbacks. The primary problem with the game is they don't make a Nintendo brand memory card big enough to hold the rosters for the dynasty mode.
Summary: This game you need in your collection, This game has ever thing you could ever want in a baseball game. You truly get your money's worth if you get this game. The extras in the are special. Rare team jerseys dating back to the "1903" , Old ball park such as the "AstroDome and the famous Polo Grounds, old time Hall of Famers ( Babe Ruth, Nolan Ryan, Reggie Jackson, lou Gehrig, Ted Willaims, Cy Young, Tom Seaver, Catfish Hunter, Bob Gibson, Ty Cobb, Jackie Robinson, Joe...
Summary: I have played this game for about a week. Here are some of my thoughts for it: The gameplay of MVP 2004 is based on the previous title MVP 2003 with some obvious improvements like big play control, and different types of slides you can choose for your runners. The graphic is a little bit better than last year. The commentary in the game is the same old stuff. I have always loved the music in this series.
Summary: I bought WS baseball 2 yrs ago and ASB last year, and I bought MVP this year. MVP is better than both of those. It remains to be seen if it's better than the new WS baseball (now called ESPN baseball). I bought the PS2 version of MVP purely so I could play it online. It was against my better judgement that I did this--the xbox version ALWAYS has better graphics. The PS2 graphics are good--pretty much what you are used to--nothing new really.
