Not a bad game, just not as good as MVP 2005. The quick gameplay can be fun, but frustrating if you want realism.

The gameplay and rosters are by far the weakest aspect of this game. When it's released so late in the season one would expect this game to be a fairly decent representation of the past season, but that's just not the case. The other issue I have with the game is that the fielding/base-running is atrocious. I can throw guys out at first when there is a grounder to RF and I can rarely hit a ball through the infield unless it has some elevation on it. The pitcher is never off balance and can snag just about every ball hit his way...the defense reacts immediately rather than judging where the ball may go. All in all the realism is a joke. Sad to say, but it looks like we may be in for some trouble in 06 when it comes to baseball.
