2K12 is the same as 2K11, they only changed the cover. 2K12 is the only baseball game on the 360 so I have to play it, but 2K needs a serious overhaul on the whole game. Bugs are everywhere during play and players move awkwardly at times and glide around the field instead of moving. Nevertheless, this is a decent baseball game and not a home run derby like in years before.

2k12 just cant match what the Show is continuously doing year in and year out. I will give it to 2k when it comes to pitching and hitting interface, and even the menus, however it get absolutely destroyed on every presentation aspect. Take for instance the color palette in every episode of any 2k sports game. The color palette is not even close to real colors. In NBA2k12 the Knicks blue is WAY off, and in MLB the Red Sox blue Alternates are far too bright aswell as their caps. Simple changes like the right color scheme and brightening up day games to real world standards would bring the presentation value much closer for this dying franchise. Would it kill 2k to buy 1 copy of the Show and see all the things they are lacking in and make changes instead of releasing the same old boring game with updated rosters and a slightly new experience on the field. Animations on the Show make it watchable everytime an inning comes to an end while in 2k i just want to fast forward while the teams switch and get back to the only part of the game thats worth anything. Pitching gestures are the best invention in video game baseball and without that 2k would have near nothing over it competition. Go buy a ps3, go buy the show, and play and enjoy it till next years edition, by then 2k wont be making a baseball game anyway. This was a huge disappointment, i saw the signs but i tried it anyway... mistake.

Let me first start out by saying I own MLB: The Show 12 and 2K. This is an unbias review of my aspect of the game
I love 2k's feels and I enjoy sitting down and playing this year's 2k game. The graphics might not be as nice as The Show but no reason to even compare like most people do. 2K has great gameplay and great modes along with keeping stats very nicely.
Presentation is very nice and takes the baseball feel into the game the way it should. Online is fun especially being in a league with your buddies.
Overall I say this game deserves a strong 9 out 10. A few flaws here and there but nothing major to ruin your experience from enjoying this year's 2k game.
