  1. 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.

    It's too hard to steal bases against the computer and throw computer stealers out. Computer batters are far too patient at the plate... It is worth checking out.

    A totally new game. Unfortunately, it lacks the depth of the other games here, and therefore won't satisfy hardcore baseball fans. [Apr 2003, p.64]

    Breathtakingly good when it comes to stadium detail, batting stances, facial expressions, facial expressions and the like, [but] the game lacks an essential bit of realism that keeps it from elite status. [Apr/May 2003, p.90]

    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 »
