Summary: The score is based on the year it came out in which is 2005. MVP Baseball 2005 is still a blast to play in 2011. There are a lot of options for your Dynasty and Owner modes. Dynasty Mode you can play a ridiculous 120 seaons. Owner Mode for 30.
Conclusion: MVP has added so many new options to the gameplay. Now there is an Owner Mode where you can build your own ballpark and make so many front office decisions you couldn't make in the previous games. Also new is Xbox Live. While this is a solid addition, it's really only useful for the roster updates.
Conclusion: I must say EA rules, MVP is another great sports title, and MVP 2005 is no exception. I bought this game and in a week I played 47 games, none of them simulated. I hope that gives an idea of how great the gameplay is and how addicting in general the game is.
Conclusion: Wow is the first thing that pops into my mind when I first played this game. And, after all the hours I have played EA Sport's MVP Baseball 2005, wow is right. Not only is it an accurate representation of America's pastime, but its fun.
