Major League Baseball 2K11
I have played both THE SHOW and 2K11. The biggest difference i found in the gameplay was the hitting and pitching. The hitting for THE SHOW is pretty hard, but the pitching is quite easy. The hitting for 2K11 is so much fun, and way easier than in THE SHOW. Also the pitching, is pretty easy as well in 2K11. If you like a more FUN gameplay, than 2K11 is just right for you. If you like a more CHALLENGING/FRUSTRATING gameplay then THE SHOW is your style. P.S. I think King Felix shoulda be on the cover!
It's not the Show, but a change was necessary.
We all know Sony's MLB The Show franchise is as good as it gets for a baseball game, but I was ready to change because too much of The Show had not over the past 5 years. With that said, I wanted to try 2K11 this year. The last time I tried 2K baseball was 2K8, and I was furious. That game was the worst ever! 2K11 on the other hand does a much better job competing with The Show. First of all the pitching is a fun series of analog mechanics, better than The Show. Hitting is just as fun and the same basically as The Show, only without the guess pitch type and location. The throw meters when fielding are more fun and accurate than in The Show. I will say fielding your player is a little on the sloppy side, but not anything to get ticked about. MLB 2K11 is full of stats! Constantly showing situational stats like a batters production when they are in a 1-2 count, 3-1 count and so on. The swing analyzer is a fun tool. There is an action cam that automatically goes into slo-mo on close plays. Stadiums look really nice, wish the same could be said about the players though. This is the worst part of 2K11, player models are way too dated. My Player mode is the same as Road to the Show in MLB the Show. I know, I know this is more of a comparison between MLB 2K11 and The Show instead of a review. If you have been playing the Show forever, 2K11 is a nice change. I am not saying 2K11 is better than the Show because it is not. We all know the Show looks way better in everything, but 2K11 plays just as good, if not better in everything when it comes to controls. I forgot to mention the commentary in 2K11 is fantastic! I was so tired of Matt Vasguersen and Dave Cambell. So if you have noticed The Show hasn't changed much over the past couple of years try 2K11. If you can look past the mediocre player models and sometimes sloppy player movement, though neither are horrible, 2K11 is a pretty nice baseball game.
i hope its good maybe pre order it for christmas just sayin i just hope its good i like 2k10 lokkin forward for 2k11
Hope it is just as good as last year with better graphics and a better create a player option.
I doubted this game so much ever since 2k started sucking lately. But, i tried it, and i love it! No really big complaints, just a little laggy with the player movement. And no more roster updates. A few cool things about this game is MLB Today, and My Player mode! I totally recommend this game to any baseball fan! It's wayyyyy better than The Show in my opinion.
This game is great! The graphics are pretty good. Online is way better than the online on mlb2k10. Mlb2k11 is timed correctly. Mlb2k10's timing was way off. Anyways, overall great game and online is really fun! If you had to choose this or mlb 11 the show, go with this game!
dont waste your $$$, get mlb: 11 the show
i got last years mlb 2k at target, put it in, and then after about 5 minutes, i turned it off, and returned it. the graphics on it were horrible, the gameplay was just awful, and the mlb 2k series will never reach the standards set by mlb: the show series. this year's should be no different.
What year was this made?
Seriously, did they stop development in 2008? The graphics are dated and blocky. The players' faces look like aliens. Animations are delayed and awkward. Gameplay is "classic" or otherwise known as uninspired. I think anyone who plays this game deserves the $1 million dollar prize. What a lemon. The announcers are stiff and annoying before the end of your first game. What is going on when a company can do this to it's customers?
Mlb 2k 11 has improved somewhat from last year. A little better graphics and player models.The gameplay is pretty smooth, but be warned you can commit alot of errors,like overthrows bobbled baseballs at shortstop and second. The cpu seems to get a lot more hits off you this time round, that makes the game a little more challenging.The sound is better and the enviroments have improved,like the stadiums,the fields and the fan models.Overall it's a good game for gamers to have fun with,but if you want more of a challenge, stick with the show.
Just the same
This game is just like 2k10. The only differences are the roster changes and the sayings from the commentary. The game also freezes too but not as bad as last year's game where I couldn't get past the 3rd inning in the first game of the season. Atleast I'm able to get games in on 2k11. I once had MLB 11 as well but it seemed like the same MLB 10. So there's no real big differences in either The Show or 2k11.
