Summary: While certainly not as horrible as Triple Play Baseball, this game has two negatives which in my mind are so vital to a good baseball game that they destroy any chances this has of being one. 1. Starting pitchers tire after 4 or 5 innings. Not even Curt Schilling or Randy Johnson stand a chance of getting a CG. 2. Each game takes 1hr 15min to 2 hrs to complete. I returned this game in exchange for World Series 2003 and am much happier for that decision.
Summary: Decent graphics with sometimes jaw-dropping thought to detail (e.g., pitchers wearing jackets on basepaths, broken bats, etc.). That said, game is too damn hard to win. I'm very good at baseball games, and I haven't beaten the CPU in about 25 games. I'm frustrated as hell with it. Not that I need the ease of Triple Play to boost the ole' ego, but come on!! I'm looking forward to checking out World Series baseball, I'll leave it at that.
Summary: How do I feel about this game? Lets see the feilding controls are terrible. It takes 5 minutes for a player to pull the ball out of his glove and throw it. Needless to say even if the batter hits a grounder directly to the short stop, you can forget about the double play. The screen shots I saw before I bought the game looked great, but once I got it home I was extremly disappointed. The creators of "Pong" used more of their system's potential.
Summary: I purchased All star Baseball 2003 and thought the graphics were really outstanding. It is probably the best in depth baseball game ever made. However, the game play itself is not user friendly. The batting cursor is very difficult to maneuver. You only have a fraction of a second to line the cursor up so you have a chance to hit the ball. This ruins the game for me. I took it back and exchanged it for triple play baseball.
Summary: I had high hopes that Acclaim would return to the exciting gameplay that it had captured in it's All Star Baseball for the N64. This game is for the XBox right? It should awe you with color and quickness..however this game is unfortunately slow, bland and unexciting. Rent it first, chances are you will be as unimpressed as I was.
