Summary: I like the graphics but the announcing and game load times are bad. I also do not like having to use the contoller in six axis mode to swing. If you want to play at the higher difficulties you have no choice. I could have bought the Wii to get interactive.
Summary: First off, I am a huge fan of baseball games. I was one of those people who's heart was broken when the mvp series was discontinued so then the decision had to be made...2k series or the Show. After last year there was no question that the show was better. I recently picked up a PS3 and since the Show is not out yet for it, I decided that I would RENT MLB 2k7. Bottom line is that the graphics are brilliant.
Liked it at first, but getting sick of same old stuff

Summary: I love baseball games, so when I saw that the Show wasn't going to be released until May, I figured I would just get MLB 2k7 instead since it was already out. Initially I really liked this game, until I started a season and played about 20 games. The graphics are great but, this game is so phoney as far as stats go. I have played 28 games and Alfonso Soriano has 27 home runs. I have the batter power turned almost down to zero and my guys are still hitting everything out.
Summary: The graphics in 2k7 are the best of any baseball game yet. All the ballparks are detailed almost perfectly & most of the players hit & throw like they really do. However, the gameplay in this game is awful. Not only do the opposing players rob you of 2-3 home runs per game, but it is rediculously easy to win, and I prefer a challenging game. I am 12-1 in season mode so far, & I had one of my pitchers throw a no-hitter with 20 strikeouts.
Summary: I decided to buy the game because I love baseball games. The gameplay if fairly intuitive and the menu navigation is fairly simple. I also love the fact that there are now three new control methods, sixAxis motion, joystick and the conventional X button. The graphics could be a lot better for a next generation system though.
Summary: I really enjoy the baseball games for console play. The obvious favorite of all time, for me, is the MVP series on PS2. MLB2K7 is the first entry with the MLB license on the PS3 so I figured I'd give it a try. First off the game play is fun and there are a lot of different ways to set the difficulty and options on how to pitch/hit/field.
