It's hard to believe they couldn't improve a game like 2k7, I mean the grafix somehow got worse,the pitching is hard to control,and the fielding is totaly different than in previous years. They had an ok game before and changed the only good things about it. I can't believe I was actualy looking forward to this game getting to me so that I could just send it back. EA SPORTS PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER BASEBALL GAME AND SAVE US FROM THESE HORRIBLE WANNABEES.
Well let me start by saying the first day I played it I liked it. The pitching and batting was different, even somewhat hard, and as a result I lost the first 3 games. So I changed the setting to rookie and guess what, I still haven't won a game. The computer AI won't let you win. Every time I pitch the ball the computer AI always hit home runs, when it's my turn to bat I strike out. Last game I played the computer AI scored 35 points, I scored 2 points this is at the rookie setting. I'm glad I didn't set the game at pro or above. The bottom line is this game was made to be unfair, don't rent or buy this game. GameInformer gave this game a score of 8. I don't know how. Stay away from this game.

I will agree that some props need to be giving up for the game to the extent that it is more than just a roster update from the previous year. However, there is nothing in the game that compares to the reality of MLB '09 the show.
The new pitcher interface is ok to say the least, and the swing stick control, a lot of people I see state they can't hit because of it, me personally I found it very easy to gain the upper hand against the AI and began hitting more than 10 HRs a game.
It can be fun if you're looking for the arcade style baseball games. If you're looking for realism go with the Show!
