  1. Without question, EA's latest baseball title is our choice for best baseball game for 2003. [Apr 2003, p.70]
  2. Washes away all of the bad memories of the "Triple Play" series and has changed the way I will look at pitching, fielding and batting in baseball games going forward - this game is that innovative.
  3. The best baseball game of the season. [Apr 2003, p.93]
  4. For implementing a great new pitching system (that blows every other off the plate), taking risks by omitting several deeply rooted clichés and basically being the first really new baseball game in at least 2 years, MVP Baseball 2003 deserves your attention.
  5. A good game that sparkles with player animation and modeling, and the franchise mode is a delight.

    If you are the sort who grabs a baseball game to get down in the trenches and swing that bat, then MVP Baseball 2003 is going to be your game. On the flip side, if you prefer the intricacies of management, "World Series Baseball 2K3" is the better choice.
  7. There is just something about this game that makes me want to play more of it…I, like other people have said, still have no clue what it is though.

    Pitching/Batting interface rocks. But, the game must have skipped some part of bug testing cuz all sorts of glitchy crap happens all the Pitching/Batting interface rocks. But, the game must have skipped some part of bug testing cuz all sorts of glitchy crap happens all the time. Some times you will run your fielders to pick up a ball in the outfield an you will run up and right when you are about to pick up the ball it switches your control to a different player until u have 4 guys around the ball and cant have any of them pick it up. FRUSTRATING describes playing franchise mode on this. My second baseman broke his ankle when he swung at a ball once! If you can get past the glitches, this game is a great game. Full Review »
