Yes you read the title correctly...Stay away from this game at all cots. I have purchased this game in the past and enjoyed it. Last year I did not purchase the series because I was disapointed in the direction the gameplay was heading. Luckily I decided to order it through gamefly instead of buying this year. The player models are a joke. They are so out of pro portion its crazy. They look like steroids is a raging issue in the MLB.(wink wink it jus may be who knows) Where to even start on the pitching interface this year. Actualy I am not going to "start" lets just say it is horrible. I gave this game several chances I should point out to change my mind. I had the game over 4 days and each day FORCED myself to play it. Still after 4 days I cannot pull myslef to play this waste of a game any longer. After waiting all year for this game I am sending it back after 4 days of renting this game. Worst of all...THIS IS THE ONLY MLB BASEBALL GAME ON THE 360!!!GRRRRRRRRRRRR......- Any ways good luck and god speed to you who decide to rent or buy this horrible game. I should write a letter to 2k sports demanding 4 days of my life back. Peace.
In my opinion 2k games really worked to make a difference in 2k8 because 2k7, and 2k6 were exactly the SAME, so to all the negative critics leave 2k games alone they are doing their jobs and improving the game(plus they did way better than what they could do, also those mlb the show frauds just call it mlb 2ksteal the show) in the areas that needs to be improved. they had a good game in 2k6 and 2k7 but it need improvements and tweeks in a couple of areas and especially in changing the pitching controls so there can actually be differences in pitches and how people approach the game in the way they want too. I actually look forward to being on defense on this game with the joystick pitching controls now you can make your curveballs as big or small as YOU want and take as much speed as you want off of your change-up I cant wait to see what improvements they do in 2k9.
They neeeeeeeeeeeeeed to get a career mode, every other game has it. The graphics did not improve at all. What the heck is this stupid baseball cards. What is this. It is not a true baseball game. This is just like the hall of fame madden where you unlock hall of fame players. That got me really mad. IT WAS A DOWN GRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
