A longtime favorite on the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy platforms, Acclaim launches its baseball series on the PlayStation2 with All-Star Baseball 2002. The game is endorsed by the 2000 All-Star Game and World Series MVP Derek Jeter, and matches its realistic baseball simulation with the 128-bit graphic power of the PS2. All-Star Baseball 2002 provides all 30 MLB teams and stadiums (authentically rendered with working scoreboards, Jumbotrons, animated crowds, bullpen action, and fireworks), as well as more than 700 contemporary pro players. In addition, you'll be able to relive history with an authentic Cooperstown team of 25 baseball Hall of Famers, including Reggie Jackson, Nolan Ryan, and Mike Schmidt. The game even has classic uniforms for each club, so you can suit your team up in traditional Brooklyn blue or Astro orange. Thom Brennaman calls the play-by-play and Arizona Diamondbacks manager Bob Brenly is there to give the game's color commentary. Among the gameplay features is the popular Future Throw Technology, which allows you to predetermine a cutoff man or infielder your player will throw to even before he catches the ball. A 3-D batting icon makes it easier to place hits, whether pulling for the fences or driving a grounder through the gap.
