All-Star Baseball 2005

What I really play sports games for is the Franchise/Dynasty modes. Here, the dynasty mode delves deeper then I've ever seen before; from spring training, to contract arbitrations at the end of the season. I really enjoyed actually running the team on...

All Star Baseball 2005


Among the major players, there's a three-way race for baseball dominance this year. That's one less than in previous years, primarily due to 3DO's absence from the field following the company's troubles that resulted in the MIA status of High Heat...

Much more effective bunting system than MVP or ESPN ; Includes all three levels of minor leagues, AAA, AA and A ; Draft occurs at right time of year, one of countless details ASB gets right that other games don’t ; Spring training’s player development...

Doesn’t pass the “is rookie Joe Mauer on the Twins or even in the game” roster accuracy test ; The minors are still just “rosters” with no real in-season interactivity, let alone minor league games ; FielderCam and BroadcastCam are camera tricks that...

While not quite as slick in presentation as EA’s MVP Baseball 2004, Acclaim’s All-Star Baseball 2005 is still a class-act baseball sim. While it’s showing signs of age and needs to catch up with MVP in some regards, it’s easily the second-best baseball...

The baseball season is now in full force and the surprises are already popping up. The Detroit Tigers have won more than a few games, the Yankees have struggled, and Barry Bonds broke Willie Mays' home run record on an...

All-Star Baseball 2005 is the latest in the line of ASB baseball games. Acclaim hasn't significantly altered its All-Star franchise for a few years now. This season Acclaim's new trick ...

Of course the true star of ASB 2005 (no, it's not Derek Jeter) is the Franchise mode, perhaps the most comprehensive simulation of what it takes to actually own and operate your own ball club. For those who like to manage rather than play, you might...

All-Star Baseball 2005 Review


Is ASB 2005 just the same ol' baseball title? Well, kinda, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

In the end, there's no denying that ASB 2005 is a good game; it's just not a great baseball title. Perhaps if Acclaim can focus more on improving the gameplay and less on extras, next year ASB just might live up to its All-Star moniker.

All-Star Baseball 2005


Acclaim's long-running series continues to get on base with its fundamentals, yet strike out when it comes to flash.

Franchise/expansion mode still very deep; analog swinging improves batting; online play

Poor graphics and sound; fielding made worse

This game has all the stars.  All the action.  All the things you love about baseball.  It must be All-Star Baseball 2005.

This game has all the stars. All the action. All the things you love about baseball. It must be All-Star Baseball 2005. One hour with this game and you'll understand why Derek Jeter is proud to have his picture on the box. The combined excellence...

All-Star Baseball 2005 Preview


Acclaim is back once again with another title in their All-Star Baseball series. James Brightman has the early word.

ASB 2005 is slated to hit stores for PS2 and Xbox in March. If you're already a fan of the series, you'll probably enjoy this version immensely. However, if it never fit your tastes to begin with, the latest improvements may not be enough to persuade you.
