I have played SEVERAL baseball games but this game is probably the worst i've ever played. The commentary is from people I like but is poorly put together, the graphics look like they are from a Gamecube game, and the gameplay is completely terrible. I'm going to have to say if you rent this game you will regret it and if you buy it you'll probably die from realizing you just spent money on possibly the worst baseball game ever made.
I don't understand all of the bad reviews, this game hasn't frozen on me once. It has slightly better picture quality than 2k8 as well. I can't bleive how fast you can speed the game up, If you wish you could probably finish a game in 20 minutes. It even has all of the correct stances every batter has. All in all this game is amazing.
