Great game, but frustrating

Summary: This is a very fun game, but the AI and fly ball catching is frustrating sometimes.... I had a perfect game going, then in the 8th, a lazy fly ball is dropped by Ichiro, I positioned him perfectly and the ball bounced off of his HEAD! stupid things like this make me rate the game a little lower, but still a good gaming experience.
Summary: MLB 2K10 is a great game. The graphics are good, the only thing I don't like is that the classic mode of pitching is really hard to figure out. The options for quick play are great and the franchise mode is fun!
Summary: If your looking for some heavy competition between you and a friend this is a good title to pick up. Pitching and batting is as easy as a flick of the right stick. The announcers are dead on however the soundtrack that plays during menu screen time could use some work. There are some minor hiccups and glitches in gameplay but nothing to really complain about.
Summary: This was my First 2k game and i was dissapointed the grahics were not worked on enough and the gameplay was hard to understand. It is like you hit the ball or you don't, it goes far or slides 5 feeet to pither mound. It was fun for a little bit when i had tried it out but after a couple of days it ended up really boring and not what i expected at all. I was uneasy to go buy another 2k sports game afte that but NBA2k9 turned out ok other than the double achivnment point.
Summary: I've played baseball games before, mostly from A&E Sports, but this game is different in the sense that is more realistic and difficult to win games. If you're not tuned enough to play this game, you will lose every game. So you have to be realy quick with the keys. It's a good game.
Summary: Well I have played both MLB 09: The Show, as well as MLB 2K9, between the 2 I like 2K9 the better for a number of reasons:The Pro's: Pitching is a challenge to learn, but once you have it down you're good to go. Also the pitching control seems much more realistic in 2K9 then it does in The Show. You have to manipulate the ball to get it to do different things with the Right Analog stick, just like a pitcher has to hold the ball different.
Summary: I think this game is more realistic than MLB the Show because of the unique toggle game controller play. And more importantly a lot of fun. This game is heading in the right direction, I am glad I purchased it, and in just a few years will be ahead of the Show for good. The 1.02 update fixed all the glitches of MLB 2K9. Yes the series of video clips of MLB the Show 09 have better graphics.
