Summary: MLB 2K8 isn't as bad of a game as some people say. It actually has some depth into the game. You have to actually try to win ballgames. Also, this is almost equivalent to MLB 2K9, yet it costs half as much. Also, yes the online play lags. But it also does in 2K9. I recommend people to buy this if they want to save some money. The pitching system takes time to get used to, but it's worth it. And I personally love the Swing Stick feature.
Summary: Well I was dissapointed when I got this game first of all the challenge is very easy even on hallof fame. The sounds O.K. but it should be amazing,and I got bored of this game in a flash. I would of liked if you could be your own guy and play through his carrer and pick your position and stuff becasue that'd want to keep you on more and more and more. And if you look closley at the spectators behind home plate there's groups of them who do the exact same thing.
Summary: I recently picked this game up from Gamestop and I instantly loved it. I loved everything about it except, the controls. The pitching is pretty hard on the Xbox 360 version. I liked the pitching on the PS2 version a lot better. But, everything else I loved! The players look very realistic and it's pretty cool that the players' jersey's ruffles up when the wind blows. This is probably the best baseball game since, MVP Baseball 2005.
Summary: This is a solid game for the Xbox 360 console, but if you have a PS3, I recommend you get MLB 08 the show instead of this. If you don't have a PS3, you're stuck with this game. Jon Miller and Joe Morgan get old after a while, but some things change as you get closer into the game. You notice the batting stances and pitching windups are spot-on and almost perfect. The stadiums and fans look realistic.
Summary: I am not a fan of using the right analog stick for pitching, batting and fielding and that is what deterred me from buying this game due to all the negative reviews. I have trouble using the analog stick to move sometimes lol...however, once I saw a review that said you can choose "classic" controls for everything (or for only batting, its your choice how much of the new controls you want), I said I needed a baseball game and I bought this.
Not MLB: The Show, but as good as it gets for XBOX

Summary: The game is pretty sick, as good as it will get on XBOX because MLB: The Show isn't made for XBOX (so sad). I just want to point out to those who complain that certain names aren't in the game that it is the choice of the player to not have his name in the game, not the choice of the game's creator.
Summary: This is a really good game. The game itself is great, but there are some major flaws about the game taht make it a disappointment. The pitching, and some-what the hitting as well, are hard to master. It was made to make the game more realistic, but it just makes it that much more difficult, and annoying. Also, the arms from the outfield are weak, even on players like Vlad, and Beltran.
Summary: This game has a lot of flaws but also has some bright spots as well. The camera angle is fine, if you do not like a certain one you can change to which one you like best. For example, I like "behind the batter "view better than I like the "behind the pitcher" view. For the challenge aspect, is kinda confusing for first time users.
