Game Over Online
23 March 2015
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 .
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.

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...
Summary: Major League Baseball 2K12 returns to the virtual diamond featuring advanced pitching & hitting controls, detailed player tendencies & scouting reports, and immersive game modes for any level of fan.
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.
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.
