  1. Without question, EA's latest baseball title is our choice for best baseball game for 2003. [Apr 2003, p.70]
  2. The best baseball game of the season. [Apr 2003, p.93]
  3. A good game that sparkles with player animation and modeling, and the franchise mode is a delight.
  4. The quick pace and the continuous user input is rather enjoyable but in the end, it can’t shake off some of its quirks for the one player game.
  5. Besides the lack of truly original modes, the only other major problem I had with the game was the batting A.I. It seems impossible to get the computer batter to swing at a pitch outside the strike zone.
  6. It should satisfy players who don't care about all the miscellaneous nuances of the sport, or who aren't looking to immerse themselves in a complicated franchise mode.
  7. If you can get past some of MVP’s fielding glitches, and appreciate this offensive driven baseball title, then you will be in for a delightful surprise this season.
