Excerpt: There has been a debate for years now concerning graphics versus game play. Major League Baseball 2K11 on the Wii has fantastic game play. The graphics are another story though. I had been playing a Playstation 3 baseball game not too long ago, and was blown away. I started to play Major League Baseball 2K11, and the first thing I noticed was the downgrade in the graphics. My initial reaction was negative.
Good baseball sim improves over previous year's version.

Summary: Parents need to know that Major League Baseball 2K11 is a professional baseball simulation. It lets you play as or against your favorite MLB team in a number of solo and multiplayer game modes and promotes teamwork and friendly competitive play. Aside from the word "damn" heard in one of the songs, there is no controversial content. Note, though, that it supports online play with open voice communication.
Excerpt: debuted on the Wii, each successive release has seemingly been treading the same ground. There are some tweaks here and there, 2K slaps on a new cover, and voila, out the door she goes. This year is no different. Besides a semi-complete roster update and a new "mode" being included, it’s really hard to tell just where the developers spent their time.
Conclusion: Players have goals that they must achieve to reach the next level of their career; these objectives include improving certain stats like the speed and power. To achieve these higher rating, players are awarded with skills points for achieving certain objectives in areas of batting, baserunning, fielding and for pitchers, pitching. With perseverance the points will start to flow, except when it comes to points for baserunning.
Pros: Pitching and Batting controls, Simple and easy to manager base running, Slick television broadcast presentation, Addictive My Player mode
Cons: Mediocre player models, Awful base running animations, Hard to steal bases due to psychic pitchers, Frustrating A.I in My Player mode, Unable to call pitches as a catcher in My Player mode
