Summary: I was impressed with the game, "ESPN Major League Baseball 2K8". It is a good game. Be sure to turn off the PS2 when your not playing it. If you don't, it will scratch the disk. The only improvement I can think of is more realistic-looking players. All the players look the same, with an exception of their race and their number on the uniform. The game has the movements of the players correct.
Summary: The graphics for the PS2 version fall well short of versions for newers consoles, but the overall gameplay is excellent. To me, this is the most realistic game as far as pitching goes that's out there.
Summary: I bough this game yesterday and popped it in to my ps2 as soon as i got home. When I started playing it I realized that it was almost the same exact game as MLB 2k7. They barely change anything. Iwould strongly recommend buying MLB 08 The Show. The graphics in "the show" are are better and ti seems more realistic. Bottom line DON'T GET THIS GAME.
