  1. The game itself is pretty decent, but it doesn't pack the punch of an MLB license.

    EA Canada did a worthwhile job in making this year's version of MVP stand out, even if it serves up a great deal of redone material. [Feb 2006, p.84]
  3. But after nine innings, it's basically the same game, including easy to master controls that'll finally allow you to be big man on campus.

    This game did little to lure me into the college fold. It falls more into the category of a generic baseball game than it does a part of EA's college series. [Feb 2006, p.104]

    This is the same rock-solid MVP gameplay engine, after all - but impossible to love, because honestly, no one gives a rat's ass about NCAA baseball. [Feb 2006, p.76]
  6. This baseballer does a good job of simulating the minor-league quality of college ball (read: errors seem more realistic and common), but the overly convoluted functionality of the game kills it for me. [Feb 2006, p.106]
  7. 60
    The baseball action, even sans the MLB license (it belongs to 2K Sports, now), is still the best in the business.
  8. The game itself has decent game play, but is hurt because of the lack of attention given to the bells and whistles.

Excluding the fireworks when you hit a home run and the monstrous homeruns its good. I have no idea why they decided to get rid of the series but since they did that plan b which is considered this is a great game. Personally, I think that creating your own ballpark and university is the best part. CREATIVITY! Overall, I say it is a must buy. Full Review »
