I very much enjoyed this game. I'm not even a baseball fan, but this game was just too awesome to stop playing. I played almost every game in a 162 game season...I even called out of work one day, just so I could make a strong push into the playoffs, the game was very exciting.
But all that excitement just lead to the biggest disapointment I've ever encountered, the game froze everytime I went to the playoffs. I don't know how many blogs and websites I went to to find out a fix for this problem. I tried everything, from turning in my original copy, to choosing a different team and season length, I even tried it on a different 360, all to no avail. The game just kept freezing up, so here I am, stuck without ever seeing how the game ended...thanks 2K Sports!

I loved this game at first.
Unlike last years game this game has never frozen on me and I really appreciate that.
Unfortunately, there is a flaw in this game that is wholly unacceptable. The flaw is that the game will randomly label all saved files as "corrupted." This isn't a Microsoft problem because if it was then my files from other Xbox 360 games would be corrupted as well; however, that isn't the case.
The game developers of this franchise are the sole owners of the right to develop official MLB titles.
With two years of complete failure Major League Baseball needs to reassess this policy ASAP. Purchase this game at your own monetary peril, rent it as your own risk.
If you have no intention of saving games, rosters, franchises or seasons then this is the game for you and you'll have a blast! All other buyers should beware and also take into consideration that my experience may vary from yours or other gamers.
