All Star Baseball 2005
4 Star Review  IGN.com - Apr 12, 2004

All-Star Baseball is like the Inside Drive of baseball games. It might not knock you out with an abundance of flash or highlight showstoppers, but the more you play, the more you realize and the more you respect the level of depth and intelligence behind the engine. In fact, All-Star Baseball 2005 features the most intelligent managerial engine of any of the baseball games this year. Hardcore fans will love the fact that the computer not only subs in the right pitchers and pinch hits lefty for righty and vice versa, but will even go so far as to pinch run late in games in order to push ahead for the lead.

good gameplay and franchise
4 Star Review   By member jeffblack12 - Sep 21, 2005   

Strengths: well done gameplay and franchise modes

Weakness: the usual slight baseball oddities

This game does a very good job of refining the baseball genre, which is slowly and slowly getting better. The franchise mode is much improved and great, and the gameplay is acceptable. No one has ever managed to get the oddities and timing of baseball quite right and this game is not excluded. The statistics over the course of a season never quite match up right. But this game is as good as any other out there at the genre.

4 Star Review   By member Warner1281 - Jul 29, 2005   

Strengths: Great season mode and expansion team ablities

Weakness: Ability to trade, too easy if you bunt.

This game is by far one of the best baseball game I've ever played. You can select any of the MLB teams or you can even create your own expansion team. The season mode is a blast and will keep you into the game for quite a while. Unfortunately, as is with many sports titles, there are always a couple of tricks that make the game easy. For example, if you drag bunt with a fast runner, you will almost always reach base (>80% chance). It's kept my season record at unbelievable numbers, but nonetheless, it's still fun.
