MLB 2K9 Changes Up The Formula, Gets Watered Down

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Easy pitching has sucked the life and challenge out of this year's game Graphics: Animation hiccups abound, but player models details are still top notch Sound: The play-by-play calls are right on the money Playability: The pitching and batting mechanics have been simplified too much Entertainment: People that didn't like last year's game might enjoy this one Replay: High

  • Summary: 2K treads water this year, but the product on the field is still solid. The pitcher/batter duel is outstanding as usual, though the revamped pitching interface gives far too little feedback. Visual Concepts reworked the frontend for this year's game, and it's definitely improved, but the underlying content is still lacking with a bare-bones franchise mode and nothing to compete with Sony's excellent Road to the Show.

  • Excerpt: Edgar Allan Poe was greatly underappreciated during his own lifetime. Yet despite the lack of a large following or far-reaching celebrity, the troubled writer kept on cranking out stories of the whacked-out and macabre until his premature and alcohol-fueled death in 1849. It wasn't until after his passing that his fame grew and he was finally appreciated for the genius that he was.

  • Conclusion: Hitting is too easy on all difficulty levels. Games often wind up being slugfests where the teams combine to clock something in the neighborhood of 30 hits. You don't have to be a good twitch gamer, either, because it's a snap to time your swings right and get big-time wood on the ball even if you're going up against a fireballer like Jonathan Papelbon.
  • Cons: Lots of little control problems add up to a huge amount of frustration, Hit results can seem canned, Crammed with bugs, Homeruns are much too prevalent, Laggy online multiplayer.
