2k baseball is boring
22 March 2012
Summary: I've been playing these games for a few years now. I have to say that I have yet to find one that impresses me... They are very glitchy and I just don't think the company is dedicated to this franchise.
Summary: Pitching is real cumbersome, hard to learn. Even on the easiest setting, I lost interest immediately. Graphics are so-so. Don't say I didn't warn you, this game is no improvement, and doesn't even maintain past standards of what anyone would expect out of a xbox 360 baseball game.
Summary: I have been a gamer for over 20 years so I can honestly say that this game is the worst piece of **** out there. Bought it as my wife loves baseball and it would be fun to play a baseball game on 360...the controls, voice acting, graphics are trash, at one point the game started to play by itself?...do not buy...don't even rent.
Summary: Don't bother, if you have XBOX 360 and say "but their are no other alternatives" , just go back and buy MVP 2004 for 5$ and call it a day. I decided to give this game a shot despite reading many negative reviews , I though "oh it can't be that bad". It really is as bad, if not worse than what they say. The batting interface lacks the control of even NES baseball games, The pitching is actually pretty good, The Feilding makes this about the worse baseball game ever.
Summary: The graphics in this game is awful and so is the gameplay. It freezes and it is just a boring game. Mvp baseball 2005 for gamecube has better graphics and better gameplay. I strongly recommend not buying this game.
Conclusion: MLB 2K8 The commercials got me excited and I gave 2K Sports every chance I possibly could with this game. Visually it is stunning in between play but unfortunately it doesn't even come close to holding up during game play. I dont know if this game was an error due to lack of communication between microsoft and 2K but it could be that the Xbox just cant handle the load and 2K is really to blame.
Summary: Other than the graphics, this game is horible. I have never play a baseball game that I have disliked as much as this one. It does not play well at all. The pitching interface sucks not to mention the hitting interface. The MLB series (MLB '08: The Show) is the best baseball sim out there. I can not stress this enough. Dont buy this game. It is the worst [...] I have ever spent in my life. I would rather marry my cheating ex wife again than play this game again.
Reminds me of the late 90's bug filled Baseball games

Summary: Fun to play when the game does not freeze up. Too many glitches in Franchise mode to count. Cut scenes are horrible. IMPOSSIBLE TO DRAW A WALK even with the sliders turned completely to the left for AI pitching accuracy. I was very dissapointed considereing this is the 360 and we are now in the year 2008. MVP Baseball 2005 is far supperior to this. This is what happens when there is a monopoly. The game makers get lazy.
Summary: I've been really, really trying to look past the bugs in this game, but I've finally hit my breaking point. This game is so full of bugs that it's unplayable. It literally freezes about 15% of the time for me. And no, it is not my Xbox. As a software developer, I understand that you cannot fix every bug or else you'd never ship. But to deliver a product with massive defects is inexcusable.
