Quoted from Microsoft Baseball 2001 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Microsoft Baseball 2001 reviews & previews
"Baseball 2001 will bring more new features and options to its crowded genre than any of its competitors. The fully featured Career mode, which includes heavy general manager and commissioner options, is more powerful than anything else to date. The stats model is equally impressive, and the great graphics add considerably to what's presented on-screen. The presentation is very much like what you see on Fox's Sunday Night Baseball, and the announcer even sounds like Chip Carry."
"Microsoft Baseball 2001 is one of the very few graphically driven baseball games to offer a salary structure within a career-based format. Many fans have been clamoring for such a design for years and its nice to see Microsoft take this initial step and managing team finances is sure to add a layer of strategy that other baseball games cannot offer to the gamer."
"If it all comes together Microsoft could take one step closer in attracting the hard-core baseball fan. Its not going to be easy with a juggernaut such as High Heat Baseball 2001 looming on the horizon, but if any company can pull it offits Microsoft. Well discover how it all plays out when the game hits the scene the first week of April."
"Microsoft is becoming a force in the world of PC sports gaming. With the release of NFL Fever, NBA Inside Drive, Links, and International Soccer, the company has a solid foundation based around quality sports titles. Unfortunately, Microsoft Baseball 2001 is not one of them."
"Microsoft Baseball 2001 will keep die-hard baseball fans, as well as the regular fan occupied in a great game. I did have a few problems with the graphics, but remember the fact that graphics dont make a game fun, gameplay makes a game fun, and this game is very highly regarded by me in the gameplay department. As it stands, Microsoft has done a great job with this game. If the tradition continues then the great music and gameplay will come together to create a game that is truly enjoyable to play. I look forward to the final release."
