    Franchise mode is by far the deepest of any baseball game out there - including"MVP." [Apr 2004, p.73]
  2. It's not as user friendly as MVP, nor is it as realistic as ESPN. Still, it's a worthwhile purchase if you like simming games and take on the front office duties.
  3. Easy-to-master controls, new camera angles, customizable teams, legendary players like Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson—don’t wait for Mother Nature’s lazy ass; spring starts now.

    If you're a hardcore baseball fan, you can look past it and still find plenty to get excited about, but the casual gamers will find their best times with "MVP."
  5. All-Star Baseball 2005 may get the job done, but in a season as long as baseball’s, you’ve got to have that special something to keep you motivated, and unfortunately, this game just doesn’t have it.
  6. The core mechanics are solid, and the addition of true online play is a compelling selling point.

    Great game, very realistic and among all the other baseball games I've played, this is my favorite. The only thing I don't like Great game, very realistic and among all the other baseball games I've played, this is my favorite. The only thing I don't like about it is that players can't be traded unless it is played in season mode. I hope acclaim releases a new version as soon as possible. Full Review »
