About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Level the playing field with the Hitter's Eye in MVP Baseball 2005. With unprecedented control of your at-bat, the ability to move in the batter's box and the power to read the pitch, master the art of hitting and own the plate with an unprecedented offensive toolbox. Along with an enhanced Dynasty Mode, you can take complete control of the team with the all-new Owner Mode. Make key financial decisions off the field, dictate ticket and concession prices and much more. On the field, make your run for the pennant beginning in a fully featured Spring Training Mode where you can try out your up and coming stars in a series of exhibition games. MVP Baseball 2005 also features all-new unlockable legends, classic stadiums, uniforms and head-to-head online play.

Last year, MVP Baseball 2004 was the #1 selling baseball video game with more than one million copies sold.

Featuring the EA SPORTS(TM) Hitter's Eye, MVP Baseball 2005 gives players unprecedented control of their at-bat including the power to read the pitch and the ability to move in the batter's box. An all-new visual indicator allows hitters to pick up the pitch the moment it leaves the pitcher's hand. In addition, players can use the Pitch/Swing Analysis to review the timing and location of their swings and adjust accordingly.

An all-new Owner Mode enables players to control all aspects of an organization including concession stand prices, promotional days, hiring and firing coaches as well as building their field of dreams. In Create Ballpark, players can customize their stadium by selecting a ballpark name, location, field dimensions and much more.

The addition of 30 Single-A minor league teams (90 minor leagues teams overall), three new mini-games, an improved Dynasty Mode(TM) and all-new unlockable legends, stadiums and uniforms, makes MVP Baseball 2005 the most innovative and authentic baseball simulation ever created.

Online gamers will enjoy enhanced features on the PlayStation 2, PC-CD and for the first time, Xbox Live support. Gamers can use custom rosters, send challenges to players with similar rankings and play in traditional or quick tournaments.

Developed in Vancouver, B.C., by EA Canada, MVP Baseball 2005 is available on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, and PC-CD. The game is rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB and has an MSRP of $29.95. MVP Baseball for the Sony PSP will ship in March 2005 when the new handheld entertainment system is released in North America.
