  1. If you want to play a well-balanced baseball game that mixes stats and simulation with arcade action, this is really your best option.
  2. You can learn to read pitches, fine-tune the single-player controls to give you more room for error or tighten them up to make each pitch a challenge.
  3. With an extremely realistic presentation, augmented control system, and additional attention paid to the overall gameplay, MVP 2005 could be one of those games baseball fans keep returning to in the upcoming years of exclusive sports games.

    Dynasty Mode was already massive. With the addition of Owner mode, you may be playing this game until EA gets its 3rd party license back.
  5. You won't quite get that just-ripped-the-cover-off-the-ball satisfaction earned once upon a time in High Heat, but you will get a sense of much-needed Major League authenticity that PC baseball fans have been missing over the past few years.
  6. PC Gamer
    Thrills abound for PC baseball fans who can live with an imperfect game. [May 2005, p.85]
  7. In this game you have not one, but two choices of a season mode. We have the return of the Dynasty Mode, but we also have ourselves a second option: the Owner's Mode.
  8. The biggest problem with the PC version of MVP Baseball 2005 is the keyboard and mouse layout that doesn’t adapt to any sports game very well.
  9. You have all the trimmings expected in a baseball game, and the action is quick and enjoyable, so much that you can get games in under a half an hour if you wish.
  10. Computer Gaming World
    Technically great but lacks the heart that makes fans into fanatics. [Aug 2005, p.84]
  11. Computer Games Magazine
    While the AI is good on the field, it's terrible in the front office. [June 2005, p.57]

    It is the best game over it has all the old players like Babe Ruth , Jackie Robinson, and even coaches like Sparky Andreson!
