Used and Not WorkingI bought this a month ago and the game loaded but then would not play. Tried several times but this game was not in working condition. Very low price but even at low price you would hope it would play. For the money wasn't worth going through return process, but not tested before mailed to me.

Not as bad as mlb 2k10mlb 2k10 is a better game but 2k9 is not a bad game either it gets a little repetitive at some point but it doesnt take away from the overall experience.

one of the worst game i've ever playedI went to gamestop hoping to get MLB 2k10. They did not have the game so i got 2k9 instead. The hitstick is extremely hard to learn. Ok graphics at best. No lasting impression what so ever. Boaring. Definitley not worth ten bucks. I recommend MLB 09, 10, 11 The SHOW! 2K Baseball has always been a disapointment. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME!!!

Are you serious?Yes, this game is realistic and can be very fun at times. I have had fun playing the game for a while as the controls were easier to use and the gameplay was more engaging. What was the big problem? Glitches everywhere you turn. The glitches are damning for the experience and can ruin it for good. Some examples include, your outfielder unable to catch a ball when standing directly under it, stalling and freezing, and terrible baserunning controls. My personal favorite is when the ball goes through you! Like your a ghost. Play it for a while if you like baseball, but give it up later for a real game.

Pretty Cool GameThis game was pretty awesome graphics are good only a the look a little fake but thats what a video game is right. This game is so much batter than 2k7. The picthing is way more realistic because you are useing the right anolog stick other than using x,y,rb,a,and b. the only thing i dont really like about it was that the game controls were changed. I got mad a 1st but once i figured out the controls the game got so much better. then theres the main menu that is pretty complex . it is hard to figure out at 1st but it gets easier over time. the batting is the same but the baserunning has changed and the fielding did 2. you press y instead of x to call off the ball. the only thing about the create a player thing is its hard to get the face just right there are almost to many ways to customize you mlb player. the eyes are the hardist part about it.because you can open them to much and they look funny or you dont open them enough and they look funny. but other than that this game is awesome.thats play ball "sandlot"

Bryan Russell from
You cant fire you coach!?!I was playing this on my 360, and my team was terrible (on franchise mode) so like real baseball I wanted to fire my manager. So what I did was I went to look for the staff section and I couldn't find it, so i'm like "thats stupid, you can't fire your manager?" That is the only baseball game Ive played from 2k that you cant fire your manager which I hope they fixed in 2K10. Other than that, the game is awesome, the graphics are superp, grade A stuff. What I love the most are the graphics on it, Derek Jeter looks just like Derek Jeter (ect). I'd recommed this to anyone who has a 360 and is a baseball fan. Also, I like that you can create yourself and put him in the minors, the only problem i have with playing Minor-Leauge games is that theres no commentary I personally would like to hear what the commentar people would say about how good they are doing. Oh and I would like they announcers to talk about how well the batter thats up to the plate, did the previous game as well as during the season like talk about how many home-runs or RBIs he has, that would be awsome.
