Summary: Overall this is a good MLB baseball game. The graphics superior to that of the 2K Sports MLB game, and it has a longer lasting appeal. However, I would suggest buying MVP Baseball 2005 for Xbox if you are going to buy a MLB game for the original Xbox.
Summary: My feelings about the game as a whole are mixed. On one hand, some things have improved, but in other areas, some have retrogressed. Pros: 1. The Freedom to freely field at your own pleasure (finally) 2. The same ol' good pitcher-batter interface 3. AAA and AA teams have you playing as the prospects (YAY!) 4. Chemistry a good add-on to the Dynasty Mode 5. Manage a Dynasty Long after your Grandkids are Dead (120 Years!) Cons: 1. EVERYONE DIVES!
Summary: First of all id like to start with the negatives because these drive me insane! 1. The computer catches everything! No matter who it is..they will dive and catch it. 2.Lefties cannot hit homeruns-there power seems way down compared to righties 3.Some players are not correctly sized. Ex: Kyle Farnsworth is not 250 pounds! He is one of the skinniest in baseball, and they have him bigger than Mo Vaughn. The postives outweigh these though.
Summary: MVP baseball 2004 is an ok baseball game. The best thing in this game is the gameplay. The throwing is awesome in this game compared to other baseball games. This game still doesn't have all of the fatures that I was looking for like in All Star Baseball. Another thing that I liked was the graphics. I also think that they should've improved on the batting stances and the pitching wind ups because they are almost the same for every player.
Summary: Baseball fans, you no longer need to cringe everytime you hear EA Sports and our favorite pasttime in the same sentence. Gone are the days of the lowly (once decent) Triple Play series. Last years offering, MVP 2003, ushered in a new era in baseball games; this game takes it to another, never before seen, level. Simply put, this game is amazing. First off hitting is easy.
Summary: I think if you're an EA Sports fan you have to buy it. Pro's: Minor league/dynasty mode is very deep and great. Real minor league players are available. Graphics are excellent, even players batting stances are true to real-life. Sounds great too. Stadiums are great. Ability to unlock old stadiums, and great players as you earn points in your "profile". Con's: Wicked hard to hit, steal, turn a double play unless you adjust the sliders to make the AI brain dead.
Summary: This game is, as I stated above, MONEY. Pitching and hitting are tough on anything above Pro, and the fielding will take a little getting used to, but overall, this game, once learned, is fantastic. Team Chemistry and happiness in dynasty mode make managing more realistic and, as a consequence, maybe a little tougher, but I like it. Yes, Barry Bonds is not in the game, just as LaVar Arrington is not in football games (though he will be now).
Summary: First off, I'll say that, with the exception of Madden, I've hated everything that EA's released since 99 or 2000. Last season when I heard that they overhauled Triple Play Baseball and re-named it to MVP, I figured "different name, same arcadey baseball" and didnt even give it a try. I'm usually a fan of Acclaim's All-Star Baseball series, but this season I decided to give MVP a go mainly because of the minor league feature.
Summary: This game is one of the best baseball games that I have ever played. And I've played since triple play 95 for the computer. For starters, there are great gameplay additions that make the game seem like a real ballpark experience. Some of them include, broken bats where they show replays to see which part of the bat broke, grass and dirt stains depending on where you choose to slide i.e legs, chest, crowd chants for certain players ex: Carlos Beltran- "Over-rated" and the...
