Rated 0 out of 10 by Dave After last year...
Last year 2K and Kush dropped the ball big time, taking exclusive marketing rights and hyping the game like crazy. The day I got it it froze contiunually, as did millions of other copies. The game sucked anyway, with horrible gameplay and slow reactions. Was the most unrealistic baseball game I've ever played. Horrible, a pathetic attempt for 2K. I returned the game and am looking forward to hopefully a better game this year. I read on the internet that one of the head guys from EA's MVP series (the best ever) came over to 2K and helped redesign this game from the ground up. They are supposedly getting back to basics and focusing on the fundamental aspects of the game instead of all the extra, unreal crap. Turbo and showoff catches will be gone, players will react more realistically, sounds like this game is getting a much-needed overhaul. Trying not to get my hopes up too much, but I'm really looking forward to the release of this game. Not having a baseball game last year sucked.
Rated 0 out of 10 by THE FAIR GAMER Stop hatin'. Play the game first!!
With names likE EA-FAN & MVP4LIFE what kind of review do you expect to get. Not an honest one. If they liked the game they would still hate on it. Dude, play the game first before you say stupid stuff with no evidence. Also EA FAN, last I checked Madden has progressively gotten worse. Have you seen the boards on that game? I myself will buY MLB 2K7. If it sucks oh well. Won't be the first time I bought a bad game (Madden 06, Madden '07- xbox360). Last years MLB did need some work but so far it seems that they listened to the people that matters most, US!! When has EA done that. MVP!! That game hasn't changed in 4 years. It's the same game. Throw a few new features in, like MINI-GAMES (Who Cares about that). EA needs to work on the boot commentating. Have you heard the RADIO announcer in MADDEN. What a JOKE!! Oh yeah, NCAA looks exactly like and plays like guess what, MVP. Wow!! Talk about variety. I played half a season on MVP and Craig Biggio had 46 homers. NUFF SAID!!
Rated 0 out of 10 by bryant mlb 2k 07 worth a gamble??
i always bought mvp series, i loved it i never did try 2k7. i do own nhl 2k7. i love it alot, and yes it does freeze i would say maybe after every 20 games or so so instead of playing 3 or 4 games in a row and losing all the data i just save after every game it seems to work. back to baseball. i hate the fact that 2k7 is only for 360. i thought mvo was coming out waiting and waiting i realized holy hell that 2k7 is the only baseball game out there. i am going to pay 60 dollars to find out and hope that this will be a awesome game. for only being the only baseball game i would hope that they would make one hell of a game with no sideaffects like continuosly freezing or having my players over run bases. last year i got soccer not baseball, for you out there do not ever get fifa soccer it sucked hard stick with winning eleven series it is awesome. so if this 2k7 winds up being nothing but crap i will never buy another 2k7 game of any sport again.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DIG Pretty Good
This is a good game. I was pretty skeptical about it after buying MLB 2K6, which was horrible. Everything is good except for a couple of things, however. The computer is amazing on defense, it's so frustrating smashing a ball deep in the gap only to have a mediocre outfielder come out of nowhere and dive 10 feet to catch it. In almost every game I've played, I've smashed a ball deep, for almost a sure home run, and then see the outfielder climb the wall or jump 15 feet to steal my HR! This happens way too often and it's really frustrating. The running controls are kind of hard also. You can download roster updates, so you can have the teams from the end of the season, and get the amazing Tim Lincecum and Ryan Braun in the game. This game is really good and it's a bargain and i recommend it to everybody who likes baseball, but seriously, the computer's defensive ability will get you really frustrated or sometimes really, really mad.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MVP4LIFE No Way is the Major League Baseball better!
2K6 was one of the worst baseball games I have ever played! EA Sports should be begging to get the rights back to produce another MVP for the 360! MVP 05 on the regular XBOX is still the best baseball game out there! 2K7 better be good... If not, there is going to be a ton of unhappy gamers out there. I'm very upset that all these gamers out there actually "like" 2K6, is was a pathetic excuse for a baseball game, the graphics were terrible, the fields were too small, the mechanics of the players movements were not good at all, the game play was just.... well dumb. Being a college baseball player, when pitching, you do not throw the ball where you want it to cross the plate, you throw to the catchers glove... I mean, come on people... 2K6 sucked, and I just hope 2K7 is 1000 times better. I will rent it from blockbuster before I spend 60 bucks, so beware baseball lovers, don't waste your money before testing it out. GO ASTROS!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Elknino lets hope for the best
So here we are again, the next installment of the ill fated mlb 2k series. for anyone who witnessed the utter disaster that was mlb 2k6 on the XBOX 360, let me apologize for 2k sports. poor animation, terrible menu options and a downright broken fantasy/ franchise feature. This is a warning to perspective buyers of this franchise's baseball titles --- Rent it first. MVP baseball is the model for which the kids at 2k sports should of followed but instead they decided to release a beta (at best) version of something that they call baseball (just barely) I guess i could of made this entry a little less bias and more objective but 2k sports doesnt give you much to celebrate or praise. they simply took a step backwards from where the EA sports team was at in 2005...YES.2005. so lets hope for a much improved 2007 version or i'm sure we'll all be pulling for 2k sports losing their MLB licensing ASAP. cheers.

Look you ask one person and you ask a another person about the same game, most likely you gonna get a different answer and opinion on the game. You get people going back and fourth on the whole MVP vs 2K.... Yes i used to live and die EA, but they disappointed me with the whole NBA LIVE 07. So i play NBA 2K7 all the time, but as far as baseball i will agree, MVP is better.... but i mean 2K7 from some of the videos i seen is shaping up well, i guess its gonna be one of them wait and see games but i mean from what i see, it might be great. Graphics look great but yet again games are not only about that, so if they can step up there game as far as controls and presentation then this is gonna be one of the great baseball games. But personally, MVP and 2K were good but i played the one no one talks about a lot is MLB THE SHOW, don't' sleep on that game, it was a great all around game.

Regards to the 2k franchise of baseball, it has all ways been shotty and flawed in some sort of manner. Take last years game for example for the first week you couldn't play online they had to impliment a patch for that, terrible. I was very excited to hear that the developer of MVP's franchise was signed on to 2K to help in the process of making this game better, I will be very sad to find if this years is no different than last. To sum up a review that some one left yes MVP makes college baseball since the rights of baseballs (MLB) video games were bought out by 2K sports and EASPORTS got the rights to NFL. To conclude this I beleive that the rights should have been switched in that 2K5 football was one of the most addicting games I have ever played and MVP was so addictive also in that the gameplay and graphics we near perfect for baseball.

Rated 0 out of 10 by JonnyZ Its got no where to go but up
Last years 2k6 game was terrible. I think we can all agree on that. Now whether you liked Mlb the show or MVP it doesnt matter unless you still play your ps2. For us baseball fans that own a next generation system all we have is to hope this game is good and wil fufill our needs for a baseball game. Last year the player models were terrible, the stances were nothing of what the real players had, and the gameplay was hideous. So really 2k7 has no where to go but up. After looking at some video and screen shots, and reading up on it, there should be some imense improvments that is much needed. The graphics overall look good. And i dont know if anyone else noticed this but its also the first game to have sunglasses on the players. So now that the players look accurate and jerseys and stadiums look better so maybe we'll have better sucess.
