MLB2k8I got this game for the ps2 and it was alright. The controls for the ps2 were ok. I recently got it for the ps3 and it was terrible! the cards were cool, but the controls are really bad. And sometimes, they turned an easy out into a double.for example, Ichiro was right under the ball and ran away and stretched his glove out. This game is one of a kind. (and that's a bad thing)

Worst pitching controls ever in a Baseball gameThis game had good intentions but fell way short of their goal. NOBODY is ever online because the game sucks. Pitching with the toggle sticks is impossible!! I can not duplicate the pitches design. 2k7 was way better than this cheap, retarded game. Rosters never update and we should be able to choose if we want to play with the 6 axis controls or use the Classic controls. Hitting is ok, but the pitching six axis controls suck big time!! Do not buy this game, or even go near it, it's horrible!! I threw my 2K8 in the garbage where it belongs. Online you are forced to use the sucky 6 axis toggle sticks that are impossible to pitch with and where the heck is Manny Ramirez for the Dodgers?!!?! for example. If you don't copy the pitch with the sticks you give up a Homer 75% of the time. Go back to the drawing board 2kSports you guys should apologize for this junk!!

Do Not Buy This GameIt is the worst baseball game I have ever played; there are no redeeming properties to this game. Game play is terrible, Graphics are terrible. I have the previous two (2k6 and 2k7) for Xbox 360, nether were as good as MVP baseball was, but they were at least playable. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to hit in this game, trying all 3 ways they have to hit, and what fun is a baseball game if you can’t hit the ball. I hope EA buys out Take2 so they can put an end to this awful franchise. This may be better on other systems (I have it for the PS3) but I doubt it. I hope someone from 2k Sports reads this, though I doubt that as well. But I will never buy another 2k sports game.Sorry I just had to get this off my chest after wasting $**** on this piece of crap.

2Ksports fails again !.To the people out their that don't have a PS3 and can't get MLB 08 the show which is the most realistic and perfect baseball games to date on any console I am truly sorry. This is just one of the many upcoming reasons to own a PS3 and not a 360. MLB 2k8 seemed to be a good game on paper with great new ideas but it fails in almost every aspect. The new pitching is very weird, and even after hours of playing I still just don't like the way it is set up. I am also not in favor of how 2k did not use or set the six axis controller swing motion as the default for the game on ps3. The game's graphics are horrible and even on my HDTV their are almost so blurry that you cannot even make out players in the field during real-time game play. The defensive is slow, and players all seem to be drunk and w/out any speed at all unless you have of course a Jose Reyes type on your team. The online play is terrible and the game is still w/out an update for the stock rosters and we are almost a full one month into the season. The back of the game speaks of having over 90 minor league teams/rosters but they are of completely made up players. WHAT GOOD IS THAT????? The commentary is just the same as last year and so is the stadium/pregame show or intro. The game is totally a waste of your money and time on any system but especially on PS3. Buy the MLB08: The Show b/c it has the best graphics, stadiums, in-depth franchise mode, online game play w/ rosters updated weekly, and it makes you feel as if you’re watching and broadcast and no game is ever the same. Sorry to all you 360 owners but hey maybe one day 2k will make a decent game again until then you will just have to wait or buy a PS3
