- Best game in the world.
I really love this game both on Playstation 2 and PC. I really think that this is one of the best games in the world. I have had this game for about 2 years I mean I purchased the game on Amazon.com two years ago because it was on the site and it looked very fun and interesting. Baseball is my favorite sport of all time and this is what I play almost every day, if not I play it a lot. It is just fun and addicting and I never get tired of it. It has new stadiums like Humoungus Memorial Stadium, Aquadome, a ballpark like space, Boardwalk, and more and there are new players too like Clanky, Abner, Barry Dejay, and much more. I think the mini games are fun like Homerun derby and Baseball darts as well as Season play and Pickup game too. I play Season team with my favorite baseball team Seattle Mariners and I like to play baseball at the Boardwalk. Achmed Khan, Albert Pujols, Alfonso Soriano, Mike Piazza, Pablo Sanchez, Clanky, Dizzy Lamb, Barry Dejay, and Abner Dubbleplay are the players on my season team. Dizzy is the best player on the team who is a big slugger.
Achmed makes me laugh when he strikes out like when he says "Rock N' Roll will never die, do you hear me NEVER!!!" I really laugh at him. Clanky is actully a robot and he is a pitcher. Abner and Pablo are excellent homers too. All great players and my team always wins. I also have another season coach with a team called San Francisco Giants, my other favorite baseball team. It has players like Ernie Steele, Alex Rodriguez "ARod", My favorite girl (Waiting For A)Girl Like You, Kyle Buhman, Annie Frazier, Ichiro, Jim Thome, Mikey Thomas, and Greg Maddux. Ernie Steele oh man makes me laugh because he's so funny, Kyle is another power hitter just like Dizzy and i call him a superstar. Girl Like You is a girl I love so much which is short for "Waiting For A Girl Like You" one of my favorite music songs ever. Jim Thome is also pretty good too but runs too slow. This game is just so much fun. I love everything about this game. This game is definately one I would highly recommend. A Million stars. Backyard Baseball 2005 forever....more info
- Son likes it
My 7 year old son loves it, but my pet peeve is that there is no way to Save a game & come back to it. Therefore I have to allot him a good hour to play, so he can only use it on the weekend! I contacted the company, & they said that is how the game is set up....more info
I was really disappointed in this game. I thoght that this was not as good as the others....more info
- Backyard Critique
I was a little wary when I bought this product however upon purchase and subsequently playing the game I can say that this game is awesome. Everything is simple to use from the controls to obtaining the locked out players. Game play is really a lot of fun especially when you have power ups at your disposal ie: aluminum power which is my favorite,fireball pitch,pinata ball,etc. I am going to purchase all of the other Backyard Baseball games as they provide hours of entertainment. Only drawback I find is that there needs to be a lot more players from the 40s,50s,60s,70s. Maybe this will be addressed someday. So settle for Babe Ruth for right now....more info

- I LOVE THIS GAME
Backyard Baseball is so much fun. The PC version of this game is the best and I play this game every few days a week. In this game, you get to create a season coach with your favorite team and with your own players even custom players too and you can also play a pick up game. (I have my own season coach with my favorite team the Seattle Mariners) You also can play Home Run Derby, and Baseball Darts in this game which that's COOL and you can also unlock baseball players like Derek Jeter, Mike Piazza, Shawn Green, Randy Johnson and more and fields such as Quantum Field, Humongous Memorial Stadium, and Aquadome in season coach.
All in all, a very fun game. Buy this game, this game rocks and ROCK ON DUDE!...more info
Backyard Baseball 2005My grandson plays this game everyday when he come to our home. We had this game about 3 years ago but some how it walked out of our home, and we could not find it in the stores. One day my grandson was playing backyard football and he hit a key and wow there it was. AMAZON had it advertised so I had to pick from the reviews which one I wanted and this was it. Its a little different then the older version but he really likes it and my husband likes the background of the video. my grandson is 18 but he is a special needs child and loves to play it. Thanks and the price was excellent and the delivery was so quick.
Thanks jan...more info

- Don't have to be a kid
I didn't buy this for my kid. I'm 24 and I bought this because I liked the idea of having a simple, mouse-driven baseball game to play in boring lecture classes while I pretend to take notes.
Let me just say, if you enjoy baseball games at all, you'll like this game. Everything's been made cute and clean and colorful for kids, but underneath the shiny exterior is a very well made arcade baseball game. You have a variety of players that are rated in various categories, each with their own strength and weaknesses, to draft for your team. The game has a full, continuous-season mode that, while lacking any new rookies or trading mechanism, is still made fun thanks to the surprisingly complete statistic tracking and award certificates (which allow you to unlock new players.) You can make all the basic managerial decisions including deciding what positions to play players at, making pitching substitutions and setting your batting order.
And underneath what is a solid simulation-like package, rests a simple yet deep game. You have full control over pitching and fielding, a 3 dimensional strike zone for hitting, arcade-like power-ups for both pitching and hitting and variable difficulty levels which allow you to turn on and off things like a ball locator when batting.
All in all, if you're looking for an intense, simulation-driven baseball game that captures the feel of the majors, you probably never bothered even looking at this page. This, however, is a fun, arcade-style baseball game that does an excellent job of cutting out the more complicated things while keeping and executing all the essentials. I can't recommend it enough for anyone, no matter what their age....more info
- My 8 yr. old daughter LOVES this game!
She just wants to keep playing and playing. The fun part is that I want to play the game with her as it is fun for all ages. The power ups are just plain amusing as you can throw a rainbow pitch one moment or while hitting use a lightning bat. If you want an ideal game for you and your child...get this game....more info
