MLB 2K12 Review

GamerNode
15 April 2012
  • Excerpt: In baseball, as in all team sports, there are players who possess a particular skill useful in very specific situations. These players don’t have the ability to fill a team’s everyday needs, being used only when the occasion calls for them. These “specialists” are known as role players.
  • Pros: Great broadcaster commentary, Brilliant use of player statistics, Solid pitcher-batter play
  • Cons: Poor visuals, Shoddy animations, Buggy gameplay mechanics

  • Summary: George Carlin said baseball was known as America's national pastime because "it takes so damn long to play a game." He was right. Never is this more clear than in playing simulated baseball in a videogame.

  • Conclusion: It almost feels like a patched version of 2K11 . With another challenger looming in the wings for next year's baseball crown it's likely that 2K will have to step their game up. Note to devs: please fix the shoes next year, too. I beg of you.

  • Excerpt: Since it's been a while for me, I wasn't used to the pitching mechanics of the 2K series. I think they are pretty clever. It works like this: pick your pitch, choose your placement with the left analog stick, then make a prescribed, two-part motion with the right stick.

  • Excerpt: Power pitchers are sexy again. Three years into its revamped look -- the dramatic reduction of offense, thanks to the elimination of steroid-fueled muscle men lugging bats to home plate -- a dominating hurler is more important than ever in Major League Baseball.
  • Pros: Great pitching mechanics, Impactful stats galore, Best sports game commentary
  • Cons: Choppy framerate at times, Dated, ordinary visuals, Feels phoned in

G4
9 March 2012
  • Summary: As a baseball game, the MLB 2K series has always come up with silver. This year's incarnation doesn't innovate as much as it could have, but it does build a solid base for the future.
  • Pros: Franchise mode is insanely vast, Pitching and hitting are deviously hard but satisfying, Familiar 2K Sports interface
  • Cons: Yawn-inspiring graphics, Lack of tutorial or fundamentals guidance, At times looks like a port of 2K11

  • Excerpt: Every year, sports fans ask the same question when a new franchise entry arrives: “How is it different from last year’s title?” Sometimes, the differences are significant and appreciated, and the series takes another positive step in the right direction.

MLB 2K12 review

GameZone
7 March 2012
  • Excerpt: In the last year of 2K Sports' MLB exclusivity, developer Visual Concepts focused on polish instead of a ton of new features. MLB 2K12 is the only baseball game available for non-PlayStation 3/PS Vita owners, so does the focus on polish and tweaking pay off or does it drink beers in the clubhouse...

  • Summary: Wenn man hierzulande an Sportspiele von 2K denkt dann kommt einem wohl am ehesten die NBA 2K-Reihe in den Sinn, schließlich ist Basketball dank Spielern wie Michael Jordon in Deutschland noch am ehesten bekanntesten, wenn es um US-Sport geht.
