  • Summary: The GameCube version of All-Star Baseball 2002 exhibits many of the traits inherent to a port and ultimately fails to impress.

  1. ASB shines in every aspect, from its detailed, lifelike graphics to the in-depth stat tracking. All of the character animations are silky smooth.
  2. All Star Baseball 2002 isn't perfect; there could be changes made in the hitting and fielding interfaces, but it is damn near perfect.
  3. What I found disappointing was that the game’s features just don't match the N64 version.
  4. Some of the issues with the AI and lack of quality sound definitely hold its potential back.
  5. I love this game’s stinkin’ fast-pitch delivery. Facing a 98 mph heater has never been so intimidating (at least, in a video game). [Feb 2002, p.158]
  6. The AI in this title is some of the worst I’ve ever seen. [Feb 2002, p.87]
  7. A ho-hum game with some annoying AI and marginal presentation. Despite its plethora of modes, it's simply not very fun.

    The Roster updates are very easy to do and gameplay is average. Create a player could be a bit easier. It was a pain in the neck to make a B+ The Roster updates are very easy to do and gameplay is average. Create a player could be a bit easier. It was a pain in the neck to make a B+ Dontrelle Willis to see him suck during simulated games and end the season with a 20.00 ERA Expand
