This entire game seems rushed and is full of major glitches which severely affect game play. I am a huge fan of EA’s past offerings, MLB and College Baseball and this game is just not as good. 2k Games has always had better football products, its a shame the baseball is so far behind. Some of presentation is better, new rosters and the pitching mechanic seem updated, but those are greatly out weighed by all the bad. Base running has hitches it in, calls errors on non error play, “he booted the ball” on clean fielded play, CPU consistently making the greatest diving catches of all time. List goes on and on. Basically, read IGN’s review, its spot on. Hopefully next year it will be better. Or not.
I didn't like this game only because I just dont really like baseball games but I had to rent one. Over all this game from a glance was a well put together. You have many options for pitching and batting. Along with full control as a pitcher you can control your fielders. But like I said.. I'm not a baseball guy. If you are this is a good game to try.

This year's version was great. Heck everything was great. I rented this and since I can't rerent it from here I have had to rent it at a local videogame rental store. This has only small probs but it doesn't make a difference. Gameplay was great and the simulation of the game is realistic. EA should learn from 2Ksports and try to do it the right way for once.

The 2K series has taken over the MLB license and created horrible baseball games. The graphics are subpar, camera angles are bad and there are very little improvements since the last two versions.
If you ask true gamers what the best baseball game ever made, 9 out of 10 will say Baseball Stars and no company has even come close to a game like that. With all the technology, it's amazing the garbage they come out with for baseball games. I personally think the NCAA Baseball has been the best baseball game in a while. From I hear it's only coming out for the Playstation this year...what's up with that
