    If you're looking for some radical improvements, then I suggest you look elsewhere.
  2. This game is for those of you that love franchise modes, but not necessarily for a pick up and play game. The gameplay problems really hurt this game, especially from the defensive perspective.

    Acclaim made a lot of improvements and did a great job at capturing some of the spirit of baseball, but the actual on-field experience seems a little off. [Apr 2003, p.64]

    Catching a fly witch chopsticks Miyagi-style is easier than whacking a pitch in this game. [Apr 2003, p.95]
  5. There is nothing overly wrong with All-Star Baseball 2004, it’s an improvement on last year’s addition; an ‘easy’ batting system means you will soon be smacking balls into the boundaries (do they call them that?).
  6. 60
    None of the other games come close to this one in terms of gee-whiz frills and bonus content. But ASB 2004 doesn't really get the job done on the field.

    The All star baseball series is getting worse. I hope All star baseball 2005 isn't the same.

    The menus are crap. They sacrifice clarity for a nostalgic look that is old after 2 seconds. The interface for navigation is terrible also. The menus are crap.

It's too bad...because it has features that would be fun to use under different circumstances. Full Review »
