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.
Summary: When it comes to baseball games, your choices are limited.
Pros: + Gesture-based pitching as rewarding as ever, impressive commentary when it works., +/- Online play doesn’t lag where it counts, but staggers everywhere else.
Cons: + Gesture-based pitching as rewarding as ever, impressive commentary when it works., +/- Online play doesn’t lag where it counts, but staggers everywhere else., - Emotionless players, frustrating fielding, mistimed commentary.
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. Other times, the progression isn’t as pronounced, making it hard for critics to recommend another $60 purchase.
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 and have a monumental collapse? The answer is... meh. I feel like MLB 2K12 does play better than its predecessor, but it still suffers from a lot of the same problems.
