Controls are terribleAs someone who enjoys playing sports games,but hasn't played a baseball game since N64. This game I picked up for a dollar and the controls are terrible for fielding the ball as well as hitting and pitching they just don't work well at least for me.They are too complex whatever happend to hitting a to bat b to pitch and to field the ball hit x to throw to whatever base you need to.If this is the way baseball games are made now I'll never buy another and will just go back to playing Ken Griffey Jr.,Bases loaded,NES baseball ect. the real good fun enjoyable games not MLB 2K series now I know why they suck and they have bad reviews they are all correct.Thank God I'm only out a buck on this game,do yourself a favor pass on this even for a buck.

An in-depth Baseball simulation WORTH THE MONEYThis game is fantastic. The franchise mode is ridiculously in depth, the controls are original and realistic. I love playing the franchise mode, the GM options are outstanding you feel like you are the GM of the team that you chose. I was going to get 2k9 to get updated rosters but instead ( My team is the mets) I backtracked the few players i needed to be up to date and I looked at how the mets got them on their website and made the trades successfully and play each game getting a huge league in the NL east, it's a very deep simulation, if you like baseball, xbox, or just sports in general, pick it up at gamestop for ** ****** its fantastic for its price when you consider what you get, it has many game modes and the franchise will last a long time if you dont simulatte the games, dont listen what other people tell you about it, its fun, graphics are xbox standard so you know they're good, controls are UNIQUE and fun, it makes you work so dont listen to when people say their too hard, its a challenge and that makes games fun

Alright GameMLB 2K8 isn't as bad of a game as some people say. It actually has some depth into the game. You have to actually try to win ballgames. Also, this is almost equivalent to MLB 2K9, yet it costs half as much. Also, yes the online play lags. But it also does in 2K9. I recommend people to buy this if they want to save some money. The pitching system takes time to get used to, but it's worth it. And I personally love the Swing Stick feature. The rosters might not be up to date, but you can easily do that yourself. The game basically has everything you would want in a basic baseball game; good graphics, a franchise/season mode, easy to learn controls, and a little challenge. I would recommend this game to anybody looking to get a good, reliable baseball game, and still save some money.

dissapontedOkay, bad game. If you have, let's say 2 outs and you're leading by like 7 in the last inning, somehow the computer wins. Some crazy way my guys make errors or they hit gappers. I play baseball, its my life. This game ruins it. Joe Moran and Jon Miller say the same things over and over and over and over again. Sometimes joe says the same things twice in a row, people run through each other, its a mess. I personally am horrible at this game, i think it is so hard i can't even beat a team on rookie. The pitching is impossible. I was hoping this would be a solid game. In some cases it is, but it's impossible! If you are thinking about buying this, maybe think about buying 2k9 because i personally think that 2k9 is better. But 2k needs to stop making baseball games. Their basketball games are amazing. By the way, the people wear 2k sports sweatshirts in the game. Who wears that?

2k ??????Well I was dissapointed when I got this game first of all the challenge is very easy even on hallof fame. The sounds O.K. but it should be amazing,and I got bored of this game in a flash. I would of liked if you could be your own guy and play through his carrer and pick your position and stuff becasue that'd want to keep you on more and more and more. And if you look closley at the spectators behind home plate there's groups of them who do the exact same thing. Now I really enjoyed the controls for pitching. Batting was a little too original. I've always loved 2 k's sports games but this one just surprised me in a way I didn't want to be surprised in.I'm hoping 2k9 will be a blast. So if you're thinking of getting this game wait for 2k9. I know they tried but they didn't do as well as they could of. Come on down 2k9.

This game is a must have!I recently picked this game up from Gamestop and I instantly loved it. I loved everything about it except, the controls. The pitching is pretty hard on the Xbox 360 version. I liked the pitching on the PS2 version a lot better. But, everything else I loved! The players look very realistic and it's pretty cool that the players' jersey's ruffles up when the wind blows. This is probably the best baseball game since, MVP Baseball 2005. I wish they would bring that back :( But, until then, 360 users has MLB 2k8 and it's a very good game. This was one of the first 3 Video games i bought for my new Xbox 360. I bought all 3 at Gamestop. If you like, baseball and sports or just want something new and different, get MLB 2k8. I hope this review helped people decide if they wanted it. Trust me, it's good.
