This game is so good, it made me a huge fan of real baseball

Summary: I have been playing this game, and play it a few times a week (if the wife lets me) still to this day! It's a great game, top to bottom. The gameplay is awesome! The pitching and batting feel so real life and puts you right in the middle of a chess game each and every time. Even if you have someone with a 100 rating (such as pedro martinez) and you're facing a batter with a dismal batting average, there's always the chance that they can get a bloop, but won't necessarily...
Summary: This game is one of the best baseball videogames I've ever played! I'll say it again, ONE OF THE BEST! My brother came over to my house, and played this game with me after I had purchased it! I'm in my 40's and he's in his upper 30's! I'm the big gamer of the family, and he rarely plays! HE COULD NOT PUT THIS GAME DOWN! He said: "This game is awesome!!!
Summary: I have owned both this World Series Edition game and the Original version on my X Box. I ended up selling my used copy of the former here at Amazon.com. I could see that this game took the place of my original purchase. This game is one of the best baseball videogames I've ever played! I'll say it again, ONE OF THE BEST! My brother came over to my house, and played this game with me after I had purchased it! I'm in my 40's and he's in his upper 30's!
Summary: This is a great game! Very realistic. The only problem I have with it (and it will probably drive you nuts, but you get over it) is this: when you are stealing a base or in a situation that requires you to slide into a base in a close play, you will nearly always be out. This is because runners' feet do not touch the base immediately when they slide in, so even if they appear safe, they will be called out (and you can't argue calls).
Summary: We bought this game for like $9.99 at Best Buy the other day and it actually ROCKS! It is alot of fun and brings out your competitive side! You can be lots of different teams and there's lots of different options to choose from. The only thing that we have noticed so far that STINKS is the fact that the game uses WAY WAY too much commentary so it takes alot longer to play. The good news is that you can chop the commentary down ALOT.
Not as good as MVP but you'll have to get used to it

Summary: This games is miles BEHIND MVP 2005, but we'll have to get used to it because now 2k5 has the rights to MLB and MVP has given them up (or something like that, no more MVP MLB games will be made). When it was first released you would have had a reason to buy it (it was $30 cheaper) but now MVP and 2k5 are the same price meaning, skip this game and get MVP, but if you really care to know about this game I'll tell you (oh what a treat...
Summary: MLB 2k5 is a big disappointment. the faces are bad in this game, bad! triple play 2002 had better player faces than 2k5. game play also is worse than from 2k4. 2k4 was easy to play, and 2k5 they got very complicated. you have to use so many buttons and do so many things just to run the bases. on the upside, the crowd is awesome. the stadium music, the piano is awesome, and the graphics are amazing.
Summary: This game has so many glitches and flaws that it is dominated over by MVP Baseball 2005 so much, that it's not even funny. 2K5 has poor baserunning, hitting, fielding, throwing, and menu setup. The only good part is the highly accurate stadiums and rosters and the ESPN announcers that make it sound like a real baseball game. The graphics aren't even good! Other than that, the game lacks in so much that it cannot really be considered a great baseball game.
