  • Review Score:9

    EA hits a grand slam with its latest installment in the MVP Baseball series.

    The MVP Baseball series has always delivered a solid baseball experience and this game is no exception. With new game types such as Owner Mode and Mini-games, the value of the game skyrockets. Along with strong graphic... Read Full Review

    Once again, the best of the year!

    MVP Baseball 2005, like 2004, was the best baseball game of the year in my opinion. It didn’t really improve from the 2004 version. The graphics were pleasing and the sound was the same as 2004 but still good. It still h... Read Full Review

    By far the Best baseball Sim I have ever played!

    I have always been a fan of baseball sims but always seemed to be left disappointed. Either the game was to easy or just wasnt enough to keep me interested for very long. Along came MVP 2005 to change all that for me!... Read Full Review

    Sorry, graphics didn't take the field in this version!

    Gameplay has definitely improved over last years version. You can actually get strike outs in MVP BB 2005. Without tweaking the game, the balance seems just right at the early goings. However the graphics are less tha... Read Full Review

    MVP Baseball 2005 is a sure catch for any fan of the game, but it delivers a strikeout to unfamiliar sim b-ball players!

    MVP Baseball 2005 is the new installment to the baseball series which is brought to you by EA Sports. I am not a fan of baseball and I do not own any baseball game. I thought that I would have some fun smashing the ball ... Read Full Review

    What happened?

    Maybe it's the fact that take-two has inked a deal with major league baseball, I don't know, but this game looks worse to me, plays laggy, I have an atix800xt pe with 3.4ghz p4, 1.24ddr400. The lagg is more in the flagg... Read Full Review

    This is either the best terrible baseball game out there or the worst best baseball game out there. I'm not sure which.

    Wow, I was given 120 characters to write a snazzy buzz line and I used all 120 (with the period). But onto MVP Baseball 2005. Basically MVP 2005 is a maddening collection of great ideas and terrible ideas. Almost ev... Read Full Review

    Great game, that won't let you down!

    I have and will always be a fan of sports games. The years of Triple Play and earlier were always arcadish, which is nice sometimes, but can get very repetitive. Luckily this years MVP, like last years, is just about per... Read Full Review

    Fun, Frustrating, and Unreal all at the same time...

    First the basics: EA Sport's MVP Baseball 2005 allows you to play as a manager, owner, and god over any major league, AAA, AA, and/or A league baseball team (well, the top A league teams anyway), holding nearly all of t... Read Full Review

    Mostly perfect

    MVP Baseball 2005 is a good game. I've had it for just over two weeks and although I've been playing it diligently, I am far from mastering it. And I'm only playing on the All-star level (Rookie, Pro, All-star, MVP). In ... Read Full Review
