Summary: I went to gamestop hoping to get MLB 2k10. They did not have the game so i got 2k9 instead. The hitstick is extremely hard to learn. Ok graphics at best. No lasting impression what so ever. Boaring. Definitley not worth ten bucks. I recommend MLB 09, 10, 11 The SHOW! 2K Baseball has always been a disapointment. DON"T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS GAME!!!
Summary: Comming off of MLB 2K8 I had high expectations for 2K9. These expectations were not met at all. 2K9 is much worse then 2K8. It is filled with gliches. For example, throwing the ball to first base and the firstbaseman's foot randomly comes off the bag. Also, when the ball is hit to the outfield, and right before the outfielder catches the ball, the player moves away, causing him to drop the ball.
Summary: I'm a HUGE fan of baseball games but I have to say this is the WORST one ever!!! Pitching control is AWEFUL, fielding is AWEFUL and base running leaves a LOT to be desired. Both sets of pitching controls on the All-Star lever leave you guessing where the ball will end up in the strike zone, (If it makes it there at all). It looks as though the graphics have taken a step back to early days of XBOX graphics.
Summary: This is easily the most frustrating video game I have ever played. waayyy to many glitches, and glitches that severely effect the game, for example fly balls to the outfield are almost 50/50 whether your going to catch it or it goes right through your outfielder, secondly and even more frustrating, is on groundballs mainly to the left side, when u throw to first the first basemen isn’t standing on the base. And it marks it down for an error.
If your looking for a good Baseball game you can look elsewhere. Oh wait you can't if you own an xbox 360 console like myself!

Summary: This is by far the worst baseball game ever created my 2k sports. 2 many glitches, online play sucks, good luck catching a ball in the outfield sometimes I will be standing right on point ball will bounce off my head or glove. seriously is it that freakin hard to make a decent game these days 2k? you really screwed up this year with 2k10, MLB 2k9 and NHL 2K10 they all suck!
Summary: If you are like me and have waited a number of years for a PC baseball game.....you will wan't to buy this. But just don't. Treasure your memories of how good MVP2005 was and just realise that this steaming pile of dog leavings will just make a car wreck of those memories. If you could use one word to sum up this game it would be lazy! We are too lazy to write a decent instruction booklet, we are too lazy to use the PC's improved graphics.
Summary: Just a terrible disappointment. It's breathtaking that a company would release a game onto the market without providing instructions on how to control the play with either PC keyboard or gamepad. There's not even a hint on its website of how to play -- only repeated complaints and supposition from customers. 2K Sports doesn't bother to support its software -- I won't ever again bother to buy it.
Summary: when i read all the review i thought that people were being nit picky. so i bought this game today BIG MISTAKE. the game is reallyy really glitchy. The Graphics are really good but the game play sucks!!!! The pitching is horrible really bad. its rediculous. All in all i think its not worth buying it hopefully the game is better in 2010 but who knows. Online game play is pretty fun but thats because of all the glitches it makes it easier to win.
Summary: This Game Is Terrible. I bought when it first came out i couldnt wait to play it. i played live for the first time it was the most glitched game i have ever played. Also when you play a franchise and you simulate a little bit the stats of the player start sucking. i was playing with the red sox and josh beckett had a two something era i simulated he ended up with a five something era. now cmon they adverised this as the most realistic game out there.
