Summary: We bought this game for our son's 7th birthday. He's a huge baseball fan. As a special needs child, he isn't able to participate in sports, but we thought that this Wii game would let him feel like he can and the fact that this is a sport he loves made this game even better. When he opened up this game, he couldn't wait to play it.
Summary: My 8 year old wants to play this game all the time. He is in little league and honestly, I think it has helped him a lot with understaning the game in a more advanced way. Where to go with the ball, what to do in certain situations. His understanding of what to do shows up on the field, he is ahead of his peers and we've had numerous coaches tell us this. I'd also rather him spend video time on this than something like mariokart!!!
Summary: Not too bad - i think that seriously you need a PS3 or Xbox360 machine to get the better game (see some delays sometimes when playing on Wii). Lots of fun and i like the wii controllers w/ numchucks for control of the game. Graphics could be better with a better LCD display (i have the old TV) but with new Xbox or PS3 i am sure that the grapics would be fantastic. I bought the game to compare to 2K10 and i dont see much difference.
Summary: I like the game and play it more than any other Wii game I have. The only real issue is a bug in the game that affects the season length in franchise mode, but I fiugured that out by googling. The game is not perfect and is a little dated, but most of the stars that play now are in the game and the gameplay is smooth... Make sure you have fresh batteries or you'll check swing a lot, and just don't pay more than $5-$10 for it.
Summary: This game has been a pass-time for me for a long time. Sure the graphics are Wii standards so not as good as the Xbox or PS3 but it is above average. The presentation is very good, almost like a real game! The teams: You have access to play as all the MLB teams (for this one, as they were in 2008), and it's defaulted to their rosters from before the season started. Plus you have 4 more teams (The 2007 NL & AL All Star Teams and 2 Cooperstown Collection Teams).
Summary: My son loves it, he hasn't stop playing it. Says it is the best baseball game he has ever played( he is only 10). He loves making seasons to play, trading players, home run derby. You name it, this game has it.
Summary: The graphics are good for the Wii, and the commentating isn't bad, by far better than 2K11. There isn't much of a learning curve though, and when you first get it it's hard to know where to start. It's easy to navigate, though, and -a rare feat among Wii games- the menu looks good. When you play a game though, it's way too easy for the CPU to make jumping/diving/wall jumping catches, and next to impossible for human players to successfully make them.
Summary: Mlb 2k8 is a gr8t game. The player ratings are extremely acurate. Roy Halladay is 94, k-rod is 92, a-rod is 98. It will keep very accurate stats and stay true to the pithing rotation overall it is a great game better then mlb 2k9-11 pitching is fun but you will strike out alot when batting
