    After the gushing review on ign and teamxbox, I was expecting the holy grail of baseball games. What I found instead was clunky, awful PS2 graphics, horrible textures and no xbox live support. Rosters are not updated with the exception of a-rod on the yankess and the minor league system is not that appealing. The stadium textures and lighting are poor on the xbox and the fielding is still After the gushing review on ign and teamxbox, I was expecting the holy grail of baseball games. What I found instead was clunky, awful PS2 graphics, horrible textures and no xbox live support. Rosters are not updated with the exception of a-rod on the yankess and the minor league system is not that appealing. The stadium textures and lighting are poor on the xbox and the fielding is still a great concern. Couple all of this with no stats accumulated year to year and you have a novelty of a baseball game. MVP might be for some people, but it is certainly not for me. I have an open mind when it comes to sports and I am not to brand specific. I am eagerly awaiting the offerings from sega and acclaim now. Expand

  1. By putting the game's history (over 50 Hall of Famers, to start) in your hands, and allowing you to lead your club many years into the future, MVP Baseball 2004 makes a poetic argument for declaring the de facto American sport— console gaming—our official pastime.

    Hands down, the best baseball videogame ever made. [Apr 2004, p.92]
  3. The sights and sounds of the game are nothing less than impressive and blow away what we’ve seen so far in the forthcoming competition.
