As a fan of the EA series MVP baseball, i was mad when 2K bought out the MLB market for games. This year I gave in and purchased MLB 2k7. I was pleasantly surprised in the fact that it didn't completely suck.

+ The graphics are extremely detailed on most of the players and stadiums. It nailed pretty much every stadium. This is definately the first game ive played where stadiums like the Oakland Coliseum are duplicated to the smallest of details. In previous games there would be a massive crowd with a huge green fence all along many false setups.
+ I have also found the swingstick (debuted in 2k6) a lot more realistic then pressing A.
+ John Miller and Joe Morgan are sometimes reppetitive with their commentating, but they are extremely detailed and they don't sound like recordings
+ You can save during a game so you can turn your system off and play another time
+ Good competition levels
- Pretty much everytime you try and rob a home run your outfielder does a head first dive into the wall. And if you can manage to position him to rob the ball, it's ussually to late
- The AI seems to always make a couple amazing plays against you In one game Adam Dunn robbed two homers from me and completely layed in mid air to catch a line drive
- Baserunners are slow and outfielders seem to get the ball in very quick. Victor Martinez is not fast, but i was surprised when i hit one over the centerfielders head to the wall and was thrown out at second. I was also surprised when speedy Jimmy Rollins was gunned down trying to get to second off a line drive off the right field wall
- Fielders sometimes just flat out turn away from ground balls
- Running catches in the outfield can be very awkward and may result in a dropped ball or just comnpletely missing it
- Many errors that your players make are ruled as hits

Overall It's a pretty good game, and i look forward to seeing the improved MLB 2K8.

I would like to start with saying, that this has to be the baseball game for the 360. It packs great pitching, like the real players ACTUAL wind-up. The batting stances, and the power/contact that every player has in the MLB.

The new swing stick control is the greatest to make you feel, 'In the game'. It takes a short time for anyone to use. It's the best thing that 2K7 has came up with! Though, if you'd wish not give it a go, you can always change your settings to the classical, yet always fun way of playing; 'A' Button.

---------------------- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

Finally, the ON-LINE way of playing.
If you have XBOX LIVE and love playing against other users; this is for you!! You get the chance to see yourself hit, and pitch and how well you do with the 2K7 ranking system. You can see how many singles, doubles, triples, and home runs you had for the month. And as you accumulate those, you get your batting rank. Same for pitching, strikeouts, perfect games, no hitters, is another way of putting your pitching rank up.
Finally it's put into an 'OVERALL' rank and others see how good you are. (in game microphones are enabled.)

this game is by far the best game on the 360. why? because it has very good gameplay, a great franchise mode, and your skybox with minigames lik air hockey and darts. you can also pick up and play, the game doesn't have herd controls at all. im always playing this game!
