I have MVP 2005 and really like it like most other people who have it. If you get it make sure you enjoy playing 3 to 2 games a lot ;-7

Hitting's impossible?? I average atleast 5 runs a game with the Red Sox. The pitching is a bit too easy IMO.

If you want some advice on hitting, wait for your pitch. By that, I mean sit on an inside or outside pitch for the first two strikes. If you don't get what you want, then on the 3rd strike, just try to get contact. And don't always go for power. Go for line drives, with the occasional power shot with your big boys. I'm playing on All-Star right now, but I've tried this strategy on MVP, and it also works pretty well.

MVP 2005 is the best baseball game out there by far. The hitting learning curve takes a little time but its worth it once you get used to it.

I've only played 50-60 games, and I average atleast 10 hits a game on All-Star. On MVP, I only got 6-7.

I guess it was a bit easier when I wasn't using the ROX...but still I find power hits a little annoying..i seemed to rack up singles and thats it.

Online is fun though I have a good time doing that...although people get angry about strikes and ping and what not
