This is flat out the worst baseball game ever!! You can tell this is an unfinished game (ex: the help files are not even in the game). Glaring obvious bugs that will annoy you(ex: your fielders wander around the field w/o tagging the runners or stepping on the base 6-10 errors a game). this is just a stripped down version of last years game (ex: you can not edit the game play settings as in last years version, you can not hire/fire managers and staff). Make sure you rent before you buy no matter what. this will be sold for 30 bucks in a month. they never should have released an incomplete game.

2k sports should be embarassed!!! They know that WII or 360 owners will not be able to get The Show, so they just threw this piece of garbage together. The graphics look like last generation, the fielding motions are jerky, the bats are too small, the players uniforms look like they are spray painted on, there are no shadows at all on the fields, the spectators look terrible, there are way too many homeruns, the players have no shape ( the just go straight down) the total control pitching is ridiculous, the swing animation looks and sounds stupid,(too fast), the balls appear out of nowhere when hitting, and the game is just not fun. I hope 2k sports doesnt get exclusive rights again. Please please please I beg, let their be competition again. MLB 2k9, plays like it should be called MLB '98. Although Id rather play RBI Basebal or Baseball Stars than this junk.
i just bought a new hd tv. so i was siked to try out both baseball games. boy what a difference. the show runs so much smoother than 2k9. the pixalation is horrible on 2k9 and the pitcher/batter interface is stupid. do not buy this game if you own a ps3. go with the show.
