Summary: When I first put the game in the ps3 it frozed at the main menu. I found out its been happending to other people also, so I went online and find a way to make it stop frezzing. All you had to do is just change the date to October 1, 2012 on your ps3 and it will start working. The game is really fun, especially if your a fan of baseball. Graphics are good, few glitches every once in awhile but its a good game.
Summary: I owned MLB 2k12 The Show. I then proceeded to get rid of it about a month later. Why you ask? Because The Show was pretty much all Bells and Whistles. Great graphics but the realism was sorely lacking. For one thing you never get to see the actual arm angle as the pitchers deliver the ball in The Show. Its like they go through the windup and Bam! The ball just hurls from nowhere. I love the fact that you see the full pitchers delivery in 2K12.
Improvements Make it Better than Previous MLB 2K Games

Summary: MLB 2K12 features several upgrades long in coming and make upgrading from previous 2K games worth the money. Pro's: Throwing Accuracy vs. time: This is a basic part of baseball that has been missing from this game - the decision to set feet and throw accurately or flip the ball quickly. This is especially true for the middle infielders. And as in the real game, a quick throw can lead to some errors.
Summary: I used to have a 360 and the only baseball games I could get for the system were the ones put out by 2K. And I had absolutely no problem with that, I had so much fun playing these games. But I decided to buy a PS3 SPECIFICALLY for The Show. Which was probably not a good call on my part. The show has good gameplay and incredible graphics, but the franchise mode is absolutely terrible. Nothing is realistic about it.
Summary: I'm not a huge baseball fan. Hockey and Football are my two favorite sports. I have been a Madden junkie since... forever. I've played the NCAA Football game since it first came out. I have played the NHL Hockey games since 2003, though as the controller movements got more complicated I have backed away from the NHL games in recent years. I have never owned or played a baseball game.
Summary: I was really enjoying this game for the first month, but now I can barely get past the first inning without it freezing on me or getting a blank screen. Unfortunately, I've lost the recent, so I just have to suck it up. Anyway, be warned---may not be worth it, because it's a fun game and once it breaks, it's REALLY frustrating.
Basically same game as last year, improved stadiums, player mannerisms

Summary: The game is so fun because its easy to play. However, 2K desperately needs to improve the check swing. I don't understand why they haven't done this. If a pitcher is constantly throwing a curveball away off the plate, I can barely tap the swing button and swing at it instead of a good check swing. Other than that, the game is still good.
