  • Excerpt: I have to admit, I’m at best a fair weather baseball fan. I haven’t played a baseball game in a couple of years, mostly because I heard nothing but bad things about Major League Baseball 2K11. Apparently it didn’t work particularly well on a technical level, so you’ll understand my hesitation with Major League Baseball 2K12… I wasn’t sure what to expect. I have to admit though, I was curious about the possibility of winning a million bucks.

  • Conclusion: Gameplay 7/10 The new pitching system is great, but the batting changes cause a lot of fly balls and the AI’s batting it almost too good. Lasting Appeal 7.5/10 MLB Today Season is a onetime use mode (that lasts until October), but online modes and the sheer number of games in a season will keep you playing and playing.

  • Excerpt: Hand held sports video games usually get a bad wrap. I believe that is because companies do not put as much effort into them. I understand with less technology comes less features, worse graphics, and less voices. Some sports games on hand helds are complete disappointments. Take Major League Baseball 2K12 on the Nintendo DS. Batting is sketchy, pitching is impossible, and the overall presentation feels like an 8-bit video game.

Major League Baseball 2K12 Review: A Year Of Bug Fixes

Game Informer
15 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: A year dedicated to fixing bugs and making a product that more closely resembles the game of baseball than a video game tester’s job Graphics: New accessories like sunglasses and necklaces can't divert attention away from the hideous player faces. Animations are improved, but the correct AI isn’t always tied to them Sound: The commentary is the best part of the game and the biggest improvement over last year Playability: Although the pitching mechanic remains...

  • Excerpt: While the guessing game is now on as to whether this is the final Major League Baseball 2K game, gamers who aren't caught up in that talk but rather looking at the game they have just been handed might find something worth playing.

  • Conclusion: You have absolutely no control over the actions of your teammates and are forced to rely on an AI coach. On top of that, your AI manager makes illogical decisions. Playing as a pitcher, you might unexpectedly be pulled while pitching a shutout after only three innings of work. On the other hand, you may be kept in too long when everything you throw is resulting in a base hit.
  • Pros: Right analog pitching works well, Solid commentary.
  • Cons: Very few improvements over last year, Numerous graphical glitches, Poor fielding transition animations, Questionable AI decisions.

Expert Review

GameSpot
10 March 2012
  • Summary: Being the understudy to a beloved star is a tough job. Your efforts seem all the more disappointing because people compare you to another, more popular performer. This also applies to 2K's baseball games; whatever they do, year after year, they just can't escape an unfavorable comparison to Sony's superior series, MLB 12: The Show . MLB 2K12 tries to stand out with an easy to grasp analog pitching system.
  • Pros: Right analog pitching works well, Solid commentary
  • Cons: Very few improvements over last year, Numerous graphical glitches, Poor fielding transition animations, Questionable AI decisions

  • Excerpt: It’s the final game of the World Series in MLB 2K12 , and we’re in extra innings. Every pitch stands to make us an emotional wreck; we’re feverishly tapping our feet while hanging off each swing of the bat. That’s the way it should be, although sadly, that hasn’t always been the case with this longtime franchise.
  • Pros: + Strong fundamentals in all core aspects of the game., + Numerous tweaks make for more pleasing extended play.
  • Cons: ? With 2K Sports' exclusive third-party MLB license set to expire after this season, and EA rumored to be planning a comeback, will
