  1. With downloadable content, multiplayer games, and a voice feature, it’s getting the most out of your broadband connection.
  2. It's worth the price of admission alone just to take the game online and actually play exhibition games - rather than just download rosters (ASB 2004's online component). And for those who love Franchise mode, Acclaim has hit one out of the park just for you.
  3. The game is a joy to control, even when using the more complex control schemes.
  4. 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.
  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. Defensive controls are just a tad too sluggish. [May 2004, p.84]
  7. Playing 2005 with its jerky, disorienting fielder cam is akin to slicing up your head on a cheese grater, then taking a vinegar bath.

    This game is the best game i have played my whole life. the grahpics are not the best but you can work with it. the number of differentThis game is the best game i have played my whole life. the grahpics are not the best but you can work with it. the number of different stadiums it provides its the best. the future home of the yankees, marlins, A's, twins, and future expansion team are the best to play in, i love playing in japan as well. I'm feeling that you could play spring training before the season and improve our players. I like the fact that i could listen to my music while in the menus instead of the boring music the game provides. overall this game is the best i can't wait to see if they come out ASB2k6. Expand

    The Graphics are so good, when im wating somone play, i can't tell (pretty much) if it the rel baseball game on espn or something or if The Graphics are so good, when im wating somone play, i can't tell (pretty much) if it the rel baseball game on espn or something or if he's playing a videogame (LOL). I also like how you can do so much and how its more realistic in more ways than the Graphics. Expand

    Good solid game. It's my XBOX that's messing up!. Great online stat tracker and good players who don't disconnect a lot.
