When the players hit the fields for Spring Training, want to be baseball players are taking up their controls and going at it with Major League Baseball 2K10 (MLB 2K10)
Well, almost. In the Wii version of MLB 2K10, there is no on line features, and multiplayer is limited to the quick game mode. This are the biggest omissions of the game.
The other modes playable single player mode don‘t rise above the expected; you can go through one/many seasons, HR challenge or the playoffs.
And you heave to deal with the menu system that can cause headaches.
They assume that you want to play a quick game when you start a playing session. Want to continue another mode? You have to back out of the quick game selection. And when you do want to have a quick game, you have to back out of the main menu.
If you want to a team you made in Season Mode or Franchise Mode, you don’t go to Season/Franchise Mode; you go to My 2K10, then Save/Load, then Load.
It would be much easier if they just gave us a main menu with Quick Game, Season Mode, Franchise Mode, Options, Home Run Derby, Extras, and Management.
Then from the Season/Franchise Mode, we get to select New or Load Season/Franchise Team.
Okay, so how’s the game play? MLB 2K10 batting is much better than MLB 2K9 (which consisted of guessing where the pitch was going) I was able to score more runs in one inning in 2K10 then in four whole games of 2K9. And the intuitive pitching is the best part of this game.
The defense is better, too; there are much less errors and you have more control. But there still has to include a Fielding Tutorial - but don’t. And when things go wrong, they go very wrong. (Fielders stumble about way too much).
This game doesn’t improve on graphics; it looks very much like 2K9, and there are instances where the base runner runs right through the fielder as if he’s a ghost.
Overall, the game’s okay looking and it lacks multi player and online features - bad points for MLB 2K10. SKIP IT
I inserted the game, sat on the couch for 15 minutes and could not find a tutorial, instructions, or even get to a game to play. I was stuck in a never-ending cycle of options mode with no instructions to actually play the game. Put it back in the envelope and sent it back. Very disappointed.
