    Builds on a good engine from last year to produce a solid sim with few gameplay flaws, but it lacks the gimmicks, presentation, and general fireworks the other games have to bring it to the next level. [Apr 2005, p.110]
  2. It’s good, it’s just not the best and 99% of the gaming population only has time for one baseball title per year.
  3. Electronic Gaming Monthly

    While MLB has the basics down pat, it lacks "2K5's" sublime ESPN presentation and "MVP's" addictive minigames. [May 2005, p.132]
  4. PSM Magazine

    Too much frustration in baserunning and defense in particular. [Apr 2005, p.64]
  5. A game on the verge. It's impossible to ignore all of its shortcomings, some of which are very significant, but if they can ever be addressed, Sony and 989 will have a top notch game on their hands.

    I love the game-play but the throwing is dicey and the batting is uncomfortable. Why not use the left analog stick for batting control since I love the game-play but the throwing is dicey and the batting is uncomfortable. Why not use the left analog stick for batting control since you have to use X or square to hit with? Full Review »
