By Scott R. Harvey on April 26, 2006
I have read the review that other's wrote and I still bought the game. Everyone complains that there are no crowd chants or school fight songs, etc. Let me ask you something, Have you ever been to a college baseball game? THEY DON'T PLAY FIGHT SONGS!!!!! If the game had that it would be annoying and corny.

This game is a ton of fun. It's very realistic and challenging. Sure you can creat players, blow out there rankings and make them a superstar... You will win the College World Series if you do that. If you like baseball games the way they are meant to be, then you will love this one.

There is only one con about the game. I mean only one! When you think that you have squeeked on by the computer for a base hit, they will make a tremendous play and get you out... That can be a little frustrating, but that's baseball. Everything else is awesome. I think this game is a must buy...

Dynasty mode is the way to go... Recruiting can be tough, but don't worrry, you will get transfers! If you start a dynasty with a terrible team or create your own school, you will get transfers to help your program.

If you like a challenge and you are a true baseball fan, then you need this game. The rest of the reviews are for those that want to open the game and win the college world series in 4 seasons... That's not even fun...

MLB gave the rights to make baseball games to sega (MLB 2K6) and sony (MLB The Show 2006)

EA Sports made this a college game because THEY HAD TO. if they wanted to make a baseball game it had to be a college game or nothing

the game it's self is actually very good. the gameplay is the same as MVP 2005. its different and some new modes. its more fun with colleges, especially if you go to a college that is in the game. its enjoyable, and hey its BASEBALL

Well, I thought since the last review was completley pointless that I'd write a review for the game after I just played it for a few hours. Personally, I was excited when I heard EA was making an NCAA baseball game because I am a fan of college baseball. More major league but I have to root for my Irish of Notre Dame. Sadly, EA wont be making an MLB game this year but no worries this seems to be fun. Here's what I love and hated about the game so far.

Pros-

Graphics are fantastic. Couldn't really have done much better.

Player animations are phenomenal. The catcher looks around and gets set in his stance and then throws the ball back after the pitch. After the pitcher recieves it he does his own custom motion to get back into his stance. A little feature but something that I thougt helped bring the game to life. There are other animations taht are great as well but that was one I was particularly impressed with.

Controls are very very good, but comes with an asterisk (I'll explain later). The new load and fire batting I thought was very clever and allows the player to actually get a feel for swining a baseball bat. Very good I thought and the new throwing is good but can have some things worked out.

Ping! Haha the sounds of the game were pretty good, I personally thought that was cool.

The fact that you can play with almost all of the D-1 schools was pretty impressive.

Cons-

Controls may be fun but are hard to pick up easily. The load and fire makes the game more realistic but is hard to pick up. The throwing in this game was paritcularly difficult.

Yes, the lack of liscensed major leaguers hurts the title (EA lost the MLB liscense to 2K sports, so they either had to make a college game or sit on the sidelines) but otherwise this game is slightly BETTER than MVP 05. The pitching animations are somewhat better and the stadiums are a little brighter. The default pitching view is from the mound (not behind the plate) and it actually does not change sides depending on whether a lefty or righty is batting.

I only have minor issues with the title: I can do without the load-and-fire mechanism (I choose "zone" batting) and the new throwing mechanic (though that is easier to get used to than the new hitting). Assuming that this game is out in 07, they need to put more teams and stadiums in the game and the rosters should reflect the current ones and not the rosters of the previous spring. A few new mini games would be nice as well.

If you like baseball, can spend a couple of days to adopt a favorite team and learn them like the back of your hand, you'll forget that you're playing college ball after a while.

This will be a review of the only part of the game I have played. Dynasty Mode. It all works like the past MVP games, start your season and pick a team. For me it is UCLA. I started and was a little scepticle of the load and fire swing. Once you get use to the swing it is a very fun game. When I fist started I would get maybe 3-5 hits a game. Now i am at 9-11 hits and it is a realistic stat for the college game. I still cant put together consecutive hits and that is why I only score 3-6 runs a game. But it beats scoring 15-20 every game as in the past.

The hitting part is probably the hardest of the whole game. You have three options as to how you want to hit the ball, power, normal, and contact. Pull the left trigger for power, pull the right trigger for contact and pull nothing for a normal swing. The power swing is good for sacrifice flies or if you are lucky enough a homerun. Homeruns are realistic, I have hit roughly 25 in 50 games and I have seen only 2 or 3 go over 400 feet. Triples are hard to come by, and doubles dont happen very often either, that is becasue the outfielder, both computer and user have rocket arms. This can be helped though by using the gameplay tuning. Balls hit to the wall now are sure doubles when before I was out by 3 steps at second.

The pitching is the same as the other MVP games, the only drawback to the pitching is sometimes the batter pulls a Nomar Garciaparra and re-adjusts his gloves, kicks the dirt off his feet, etc. sometimes it takes as long as 5-6 seconds between pitches.

The fielding on this game is the best so far. With the new load and fire fielding, you use the right analog thumbstic, if you push to the right it goes to first base and up is second and so forth.
