    One of the most feature rich baseball games that you'll find on a console. It doesn't offer nearly as much as the typical baseball simulation on the PC, but most players will find that all of the important bases have been covered here.
  2. If you're into baseball, then this is the game to get--its presentation is extremely polished, and it really delivers the experience of being at and playing in an actual MLB game.

    It will alternately excite and frustrate you, but for the time being, there is no better baseball experience on the PS2.

    All-Star Baseball was always one of the best console baseball series when it was on the Nintendo 64, but it's amazing how much the PS2 and Acclaim Sports' two years of development have added to the series. Most impressive are the excellent player models and faces.
  5. You will find that it is a much better and more realistic game if you play against another human instead of the computer.
  6. Possibly the best all-around baseball game for the PlayStation 2.
  7. Leveraging great depth, wonderfully simple play mechanics, and competent graphic touches, this game should last as long as an official baseball season.

    The others try for the Big Show, but will get sent back to the Cactus Leagues when you get your hands on this.
  9. The graphics are clean, but camera flaws ruin the fielding in the game.
  10. 80
    This is definitely a game for baseball fans.

    I like the features of all star baseball 2002 and the graphics are better and that beats Triple play 2002.
