Major League Baseball 2k10 Review (Xbox 360)
23 July 2011
Excerpt: Video games often offer a sort of wish fulfillment in their escapist fantasy – while we’re in a game world, we can be a knight or a rebel, a pirate or a soldier; to borrow from David Bowie, we can be heroes, even if it is just for one day. Sports video games offer many people an even deeper sense of wish fulfillment – many of us enjoy sports and enjoy playing them but know we simply aren’t talented or able enough to play them at even a proficient amateur level.

Conclusion: To sum up our review, MLB 2K10 is a fun and
intellectually pleasing baseball game. It might
not be a perfect baseball simulation but it is
solid nonetheless. Though the game reigns
supreme in presentation, the amazing commentary
is worth mentioning. It analyzes down to the
wire (and even addresses a player’s last year’s
stats), very much like actual games.
Excerpt: Take-Two and 2K Sports had a tough road ahead of them this past year with MLB 2K10. This is the year of the fan—the year when fan input is shaping what this year’s title has to offer. This is also the year that the series is supposed to take a big step forward. And with Sony putting out a heck of a game year after year with The Show series, it needs to take a few steps forward indeed. So what’s the verdict?
Conclusion: Boosting can be fairly easy with a partner or a group of 4 using the online leagues. Conclusion The game play and the pitching mechanics make this game very addictive, if you are a baseball fan. Other issues drag the score down from a 5 star to a 4 star game. I am very pleased with this purchase, since it has been a while playing a baseball game.
Excerpt: The last time I fit my hand to a mitt or swung at a pitch is further back than I can distinctly recall. Not to say America's own gentlemanly athletic abstraction wasn't a part of my youth: shortly after I could walk, my father introduced me to the game care of a company called Wiffle.
Excerpt: Opening day of the regular season is rapidly approaching with spring training already in full motion. Time to run out to your local video game retailer and choose which MLB title you'll be simulating the season with. While 360 owners have almost no choice in the matter, the question of whether or not to upgrade to MLB 2K10 still exists and hopefully the next few chapters will help you decide.
