WORST SO FAR!!!!

I'm a HUGE fan of baseball games but I have to say this is the WORST one ever!!! Pitching control is AWEFUL, fielding is AWEFUL and base running leaves a LOT to be desired. Both sets of pitching controls on the All-Star lever leave you guessing where the ball will end up in the strike zone, (If it makes it there at all). It looks as though the graphics have taken a step back to early days of XBOX graphics. I surely hope taht 2K Sports makes MANY changes to the MANY problems with the release of 2K10 or I willl never buy another one of their sports games again. On the plus side, stealing is not all that hard to do against the system or other players if you know what to look for. Also, the soundtrack isn't too bad for those who like the Rock Band games.

2k7 Was SOOOOO much better

when i read all the review i thought that people were being nit picky. so i bought this game today BIG MISTAKE. the game is reallyy really glitchy. The Graphics are really good but the game play sucks!!!! The pitching is horrible really bad. its rediculous. All in all i think its not worth buying it hopefully the game is better in 2010 but who knows. Online game play is pretty fun but thats because of all the glitches it makes it easier to win. i feel that the game in some ways looks more cartoonish then its predecessors. Again if your looking for a good baseball game just buy 2k7 it might be older but it is a hell of a lot better. And again i hope 2k Sports acutally takes the players reviews and uses it to better the next verion but idk it didnt seem to work b4.

While I havnt played any of the other MLB 2K games, I do like this one. Not sure what all the fuss is about. The batting and pitching control reminds me alot of MLB '98 from the Playstation. When batting you push the left stick in the direction you want the ball to go and swing with the right. While pitching, you place the ball where you want it in the strike zone with the left stick and do a certian 1/4 to 3/4 circle in a direction to throw a certian pitch. I'm at a loss on how people could have problems with this. Learn the pitch, it shows you what it's going to do if thrown correct. If the arrows point down and to the left, it's going down and to the left. I find the pitching easy and very enjoyable in this game. I like to see how many K's I can get with my pitchers, because you can get the batter guessing and the commentators will give you little hints and clues if you pay attention. As far as the batting goes, well if the team your playing has good pitching its not as easy to get base hits. If the pitching is lacking, you can run the score up. You also have to be patient. Dont swing at everything they throw. Make them give you a good pitch. Hell, I've been walked a couple times just because I was patient and the pitcher couldnt get it over the plate. So lets move onto the fielding. At times it can be frustrating. Sometimes it seems as thou the CPU can get to any ball unless you jack it out of the park, but at the same time your guy cant get to a ground ball that is hit 2' to his left. Now this dosnt always happen but when it does it's a pain. I'd say out of every 2 games it may happen for 2 - 4 inngs of play. Also there are times when your player will look like Flash Gordan while chasing after a fly ball. Other times he looks like shriek trying to run and you think he wont make it so at the last minute you hit the dive button and they dont catch it. But I've come to find out, 90% of the time if you dont hit the dive button they will do this amazing stretch thing and some how catch it on thier own. Throwing to bas' is pretty good. All players have a meter that starts when you hit the throw button, keep it in the green and easy out. If it goes into the red they usually still get them out but the person cathing may have to move a little. Overall its a very enjoyable game, with great replay value. You can also make your own player and place him on a tream. No carrer mode option.

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.
