    Swing battah!



    Order that extra hot dog and break out the fireworks. EA Sports has slugged a grand slam with its latest hardball release.

    EA Sports has a well-deserved reputation for great realism with top- shelf graphics, excellent controls and highly refined team-management options. But with MVP Baseball 2004, EA has brought us something new, turning America's favorite pastime into a truly great experience.

    Everything you expect in a baseball video game is here, but the premium hitting, fielding, pitching, and base running controls, coupled with the ability to swing for the fences and protect the plate when you have a two-strike count sets a new standard for baseball games.

    If that weren't enough to make you drool, the game includes all 60 AA and AAA minor league teams, plus legendary players, classic stadiums, and retro jerseys that can be unlocked by spending MVP points. MVP points are earned by performing in-game heroics and reaching Dynasty Mode goals.

    Features

    • All MLB teams, plus the AL and NL All-Star teams
    • Roster Management: Control every element of team building -- signing free agents, trades, call-ups and send downs, and player creation.
    • Four difficulty Levels: Rookie, Pro, All-Star, and MVP
    • Gameplay Options: Choose the number of innings; assisted, automatic or manual fielding; nine batting views and three fielding views. Activate strike zones, hot/cold zones, pitch cursors, and fielding aids
    • Gameplay Tuning: Awesome precision control including pitch speed, pitcher fatigue, batting contact and power, plus bunting ability
    • Play-by-play and color commentary by San Francisco Giants broadcasters Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow
    • Batting Cam: This super slow-mo camera is not only entertaining but informative, helping you learn about swing timing and bat position.
    • Many modes: Exhibition, Dynasty Mode, Home Run Showdown, Pitcher Showdown and Manager. For more details on modes, click on Strategy at left
    • 50 legendary players, 60 retro uniforms, eight classic stadiums, and two teams stocked with historic All-Stars

    Bottom Line

    MVP Baseball 2004 wins the pennant hands down as the most realistic and visually powerful baseball videogame ever. A must for your Nintendo GameCube sports library.
