Summary: Well I believe that MLB games are the Best. 2k11 have his pros and cons but MLB the Show also. taking a critical review of all playable the best is 2k11 but in effect and ambient the winner is The Show
Summary: Many people consider that MLB 2K11 is inferior to MLB 11: The Show. I on the other hand think the opposite. While I agree that MLB 11: The Show has the best graphics of any sports game, it also has the worst controls of any sports game. The great thing about MLB 2K11 is that it has combined analog controls with button controls in a way to allow players to use both at the same time. MLB 11: The Show only has button controls or analog controls.
Summary: MLB 11 THE SHOW and MLB 2k11 To start out, ill admit it i am a THE SHOW fan boy and have played every copy of the show ever made. Also i have NEVER played the 2k series on the ps3. (had on 360 when i had 1 and ps2) This year the show to me is broken, so i went ahead and purchased this game. Here is my review for both games... GRAPHICS THE SHOW- The show in this category is the clear cut winner.
Summary: I have played MLB the Show since the beginning and this year I figured it would be the same. After playing the demos of both games I felt that 2K11's game play had finally improved enough to the point it was actually fun. After purchasing both games I decided on selling the Show for one reason... the games are more exciting to play in 2K11. The graphics are better on the Show no doubt, but the pitching alone makes 2K11 a great game.
Summary: We all know Sony's MLB The Show franchise is as good as it gets for a baseball game, but I was ready to change because too much of The Show had not over the past 5 years. With that said, I wanted to try 2K11 this year. The last time I tried 2K baseball was 2K8, and I was furious. That game was the worst ever! 2K11 on the other hand does a much better job competing with The Show. First of all the pitching is a fun series of analog mechanics, better than The Show.
Summary: This year Major League Baseball 2k11 steps up to the plate and delivers. Gameplay is smooth. The pitching and batting analog mechanics top The Show. Player models are better in The Show, but stadium models are comparable. Does it matter if The Show's graphics are photorealistic if a game is too hard to be playable or the online play is unstable? Some of the complaints I have read about Major League Baseball 2k11 include the camera angle and hooked foul home-runs.
