Innovative baseball title with choppy action.

Summary: Parents need to know that this is a straightforward simulation of Major League Baseball. None of the baseball controversies dominating recent headlines are present. The game is playable online , so kids playing online could hear language that might not be appropriate. Common Sense Media recommends that children under the age of 12 not play online without supervision.
Summary: Essentially, MLB 2K8 does a lot of things right and enough things wrong. The game may be a huge improvement over last year’s title and give The Show a run for its money in the 2K9 installment, but it fails to clear the bar of respectable competition and will probably play second fiddle to MLB 08: The Show.
Pros: Great pitching mechanics, Trading Card feature, Precision Throw Control
Cons: Poor fluidity, Some awkward visual effects, Sometimes poor collision detection
