  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.

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