Summary: --- One out, runner on third. Deep fly ball to LF and the catch is made. Runner then tags and crosses plate while CPU left fielder throws to third and runner is called out. Inning over. ?????????????? --- Score: Player= 3 CPU= 0 // Two outs, CPU batting with a runner on third. Ground ball to 3rd baseman who throws to first. Batter out. Runner runs in from third, inning over. Player comes up to bat and inexplicably the score is now: Player= 3 CPU= 1 // ?????????
Summary: This game flat out stinks!!! The fielding is horrible. You can't charge the ball and the fielders wait for the balls to come to them instead of charging at it and making a throw. I have had pitchers get infield hits against me because the shortstop waits for the ball. Also it is impossible to make a diving stop in the infield or outfield. You can not make any highlight plays. It says to push the R button up to steal a homerun but instead you dive.
Summary: This game is really bad. Rosters look like they made no attempt to get them right and they are stil yet to release a downloadable update. Unlike other games, I cannot figure out a way to just go through the rosters and fix them myself. The instruction manual leaves much to be desired as I am yet to figure out how exactly I am supposed to pitch.
Summary: This game is unplayable. Beyond the shoddy play, sometimes the fielders take their time when trying to throw people out, the game freezes on regular xbox whenever restoring a game from the WBC tourney. This game is horrendous. The worst. An abomination. An embarassment. And most of all an insult to everyone who has purchased it. Save your $40.
Summary: I am an EA Sports guy. When EA traded away MVP it was the worst mistake in the world. I have never played an ESPN Baseball game before until this year and I will never buy another one. This game FREEZES all the time. The fielding is HORRIBLE!!!! The batting is unrealistic and when you hit a homerun you dont even know until the game unfreezes and you see yourself cross the plate. I HATE THIS GAME!!!!!
Summary: I was psyched to get this until the bad reviews. I too love MVP, and you know what? I'm still using MVP 2005 - just keep adjusting teams & rosters, create players, & update everything to 2006, and you don't need to buy anything else.
Summary: I have to admit that there is some elegance to the statistical aspect of the game, but that is it! First, the commentary is always inaccurate. Second, saving and loading (profiles, settings, season, etc.) is cumbersome. Third, the game is flakey; you can tell they rushed this out the door without doing any QA. Save your money and play previous versions until 2007.
Summary: I really liked the 2k5 version of this game for many reasons; 1) I like Morgan's & Millers' commentary as their voices are not irritating, 2) the price was a steal at $20 brand new! 3) good game play for the $$$$ and some nice extras (ie...old stadiums, teams, uniforms, etc...), 4) the affiliation with ESPN and the Baseball Tonite guru Karl Ravitch and their great theme song.
Summary: pretty much everything about this game (except maybe the multiple user controlled teams in gm, franchise and season modes) sucks. if you liked mvp 05, DO NOT BUY THIS GAME. I cant believe we have to deal with this for the next few years.
