first off, as soon as the game begins, you see your starting pitcher warming up throwing the ball and the catcher throws it back at an extremely unrealistic pace.
the player models look ridiculous, laughable
played only half an inning and didnt even bat. after 2 wild pitches and an error throwing to 1st i just shook my head.
with nba 2k being an almost perfect game, this is a game that has no perfection. not even worth renting

This game is not that different from the previous year's edition. I can't stand the look of the player models. The lighting and crowd animations are slightly improved, but the gameplay and most other features make this game little more than a roster update. I don't like the feel of the controls or the navigation of the menus. It runs smoothly so far, but a game that you don't like that runs smoothly doesn't mean much, does it?
I haven't purchased an MLB2k game since 08, and I am still playing that edition at least one game a week. The gameplay was at its best that year and it has just gone downhill since. Unfortunately, that was the buggiest year ever, so I have a game I love to play that runs like a slideshow sometimes, and on rare occasions crashes too.
I have rented MLB2K every year since 08 and been disappointed every year. I WANT to love it every year, but I guess I have to just stick to 08.
One of the reasons I am against exclusive contracts is because there is no incentitive to for the developer to do his best. MLB 2K 12 is a prime example. Pure junk! I have been trying to hit more than a foul ball for 2 years with no success> The controls are awkward and slow to respond. I hard to see where the ball is going. I was standing in the circle and couldmt pick up the yellow indicator. Sad! When chasing a ball the outfield/infield moves to slow. Sad! When pitching the ball seldom crosses the plate unless it is put right down the middle. Sad! I wanted to play baseball so bad till I almost bought a playstation for " the SHOW".
I was pulling for 2k to do something special it didnt happen. I remember 2k Football before Madden's junk came out. Good game 2k baseball and basketball is junk! SAD but true. Dont gouge my pockets with junk!
