Product Details:

The Complete MLB® Experience: Major League Baseball® 2K8 returns to the diamond with the most complete MLB® experience available on every major video game console. Revolutionizing your control of the 5 tools in baseball are brand new pitching, fielding and baserunning controls and a completely overhauled batting interface. Featuring a totally unique trading card mode, robust Minor League system, all-new Signature Style animations for 2008, and more, Major League Baseball® 2K8 brings a new level of fun to the virtual baseball world.

Major League Baseball® 2K8 takes full advantage of the Wii remote with fun, new gameplay controls:
  • Pitching - To pitch, players simply point the Wii Remote at the screen, pull back to start the pitcher's motion, then flick the Wii Remote forward. The quicker the player flicks the remote, the more velocity and movement the pitch will have. The Nunchuk can be used to view a player's pitch arsenal and to select which pitch to throw.
  • Batting - Swinging for the fences with Major League Baseball 2K8 on Wii will provide fans with even more fun when they control the Wii Remote as if they were swinging a real bat. The Nunchuk acts to control the direction of the ball.
  • Fielding - While controlling their designated player using the Nunchuk, players can snag fly balls and use the Wii Remote to throw to the appropriate base. Players can use Major League Baseball 2K8's "Smart Throw" technology to throw to the best base by simply flicking the Wii Remote or can manually choose which base to throw to by pressing a direction on the directional pad.
  • Baserunning - Players can control the speed of their baserunning by shaking the Wii Remote and Nunchuk simultaneously, then pushing both controllers to slide.
  • Best Booth in the Business - 2K Sports proudly brings back the duo Jon Miller and Hall of Famer Joe Morgan to the broadcast booth, delivering the deepest commentary available.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game It was a good game. It had better pitching controls than the ones from mlb 2k6 for the gamecube and better baserunning controls from mlb 2k11. I had fun with the game untill mlb 2k11. It was fun to make your own roster.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from under rated because of graphics the graphics on the mlb games for the wii are always not as goodas on other systems because of how hard it is to make a quality sports game for the sensitive wii remote

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unbalanced CPU The graphics are good for the Wii, and the commentating isn't bad, by far better than 2K11. There isn't much of a learning curve though, and when you first get it it's hard to know where to start. It's easy to navigate, though, and -a rare feat among Wii games- the menu looks good. When you play a game though, it's way too easy for the CPU to make jumping/diving/wall jumping catches, and next to impossible for human players to successfully make them. Just about every human HR is robbed by the CPU unless it's hit over an impossible-to-climb wall (like I have to keep doing). And the manual doesn't tell you about anything like the VIP, the only parts not covered in-game. Overall, not a bad game, but could use some serious improvement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It freezes a lot... After playing, I look at this game and I see potential. The season modes and features of this game are very cool, and the graphics are awesome. If this game would stop freezing I'd be a happy person. And sometimes a play would happen, then around five seconds later the announcers would be talking about it as if it were happening then and there. But the announcers themselves are great, who could ask for more than Jon Miller and Joe Morgan? Overall, This is a great game, but it can drive you insane, because you can get really far into a game and it'll freeze, and destroy every single thing you did in the game.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible This is absolutly the worst game I have ever played. This game made me cry. There would be a pop fly and the game would tell you where to go where to go and the at the last second switch causing an error and also would tell you that you got a home run but then they would make some amazing catch like one time they acually stood up on the wall and caught it. Those commercials that say to "Never by a bad game again" and they people are acting crazy and throwing things. Thats what this game made me do. A waste of $20. Made me so mad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2k is back with another great game! Ok, so this game's graphics aren't the best! what do you expect it's the wii. pitching is great in this game! The camera angle makes you feel like a real pitcher. Batting is great too. make sure you keep your wii remote by your ear when you're batting because otherwise you'll have experieces of just hitting a lousy grounder. I like the mode in exhibition where you can choose a situation like bottom of the ninth 2 outs, road team has 1 run and the home team has zero. then you can pick the spot you want in the lineup. then it goes straight to a game and you try to score run 1 with the home team to tie it and 2 runs to win it unless you're the road team you would try to hold the home team. I agree sometimes there are some ridiculous wall climbs, but you can still hit many home runs. Another thing i like is that it shows the batter's contact percentage and power percentage so you know if you should try to just hit a line drive over one of the infielders or one up the gap of two outfielders. You should try to swing for the fences if the batter's power is in the nineties. I recommend buying this game!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good game Firt of all, this game stinks. I first bought it because it looked fun and I was going to get another sports game fo r the Wii. I already had Madden 08 and it was great, so I bought this. There are many reasons why I do not like this game. First of all, the people look like cartoons. The game is very glitchy to. The other team will hit a fly ball into the outfield, and you get under the ball to catch it in the red area that it tells you to stand in so you can catch it, and suddenly the red area will move to the side. One thing that really annoyed me was that when it looked like a home run. The opposite team would suddenly spring of the wall and make amazing catches. You get all happy cause it says your going to get a home run, and then they catch it. This game is very frustrating and I highly recommend that you do not buy it.
