Inside Hotwire 3D
31 May 2009
  • Conclusion: When it comes down to choices, Major League Baseball 2K9 is a viable commodity. The franchise still has what it takes to play hard ball. The seamless pitching and hitting are two of the most appreciated instruments that you’ll find in this year’s baseball season. Everything is up to speed where the animation runs at a smoother frame rate and loading is practically non-existent.

  • Conclusion: Final Comments - I’d buy this game, if you’re a baseball fan. You might want to rent it before you buy it to see if it is the game for you (I’ve heard fans of MLB2k8 saying they hated it, and others that played it saying they loved it). If you rent it you WILL NOT be able to get through the whole season or franchise mode in the week you have.

  • Conclusion: Nothing groundbreaking in the latest installment of the MLB 2K series that would set this apart from any other sports title. You will get your money’s worth with the Franchise mode and the constant free roster updates. MLB 2K9 is good enough to make it to the majors, but not quite worthy of an all-star title that we were hoping for.

Major League Baseball 2K9 review (X360)

HonestGamers
18 March 2009
  • Excerpt: In short, your hopes are strung along at first by a satisfactory visual presentation, with the telecast handled by two well-known baseball buffoons. It feels reasonably similar to a day at the park.

  • Excerpt: Edgar Allan Poe was greatly underappreciated during his own lifetime. Yet despite the lack of a large following or far-reaching celebrity, the troubled writer kept on cranking out stories of the whacked-out and macabre until his premature and alcohol-fueled death in 1849. It wasn't until after his passing that his fame grew and he was finally appreciated for the genius that he was.

Major League Baseball 2K9 Review

GameSpot
6 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Scientists have long pondered the existence of other universes where the physics are totally different than they are here. In these strange dimensions, up would be down, fast would be slow, and Major League Baseball 2K9 would be a realistic depiction of the national pastime game. In our own mundane reality, however, 2K Sports' latest look at the grand old American game skews baseball so much that you seem to be viewing the diamond action through a funhouse mirror.
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: Lots of little control problems add up to a huge amount of frustration, Hit results can seem canned, Crammed with bugs, Homeruns are much too prevalent, Laggy online multiplayer

5 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Long-suffering Xbox 360 baseball fans finally have reason to hope. Like the real-life Los Angeles Angels, new ownership (developer Visual Concepts) has gutted the MLB 2K franchise, leaving all of the old ways behind and laying the foundation for a bright future. And though 2K9 isn’t quite ready to win now, the pieces are in place for an extended run in the coming years.
  • Pros: + Core elements are solid and lay the foundation for next year., + Much-improved presentation.
  • Cons: - Laundry list of annoying little problems is too substantial., ? Will next year finally be the year we get exactly what we've been waiting for?

  • Cons: Gameplay-wise, almost everything needs work., Feels like a game of softball, not baseball., Player models are mediocre.
