Pretty Cool Game

Yankeesfan1 , GameStop
2 December 2010
  • Summary: This game was pretty awesome graphics are good only a the look a little fake but thats what a video game is right. This game is so much batter than 2k7. The picthing is way more realistic because you are useing the right anolog stick other than using x,y,rb,a,and b. the only thing i dont really like about it was that the game controls were changed. I got mad a 1st but once i figured out the controls the game got so much better.

A very intriguing title

  • Summary: I bought this game after reading every last one of the reviews on this website, and feel I should add my own after living the game for a few weeks. The Pros: This game is beautiful. The stadiums are amazing representations with intricate detail that is both unsuspecting and complex. The pitching interface is fun and keeps me coming back all the time. There are over 1000 camera views, literally, and the customization options are pretty much endless throughout the game.

Better than Advertised

  • Summary: I read a lot of the reviews for this game that complained of poor gameplay, awful glitches, and a disappointing experience overall, but I was really jonesing for some baseball so I decided to take a chance. I have to say that I am very happy with the game thus far. Maybe the patch that was released fixed most of the issues. Yes, fielding is difficult, and the controls took a little getting used to, but I really don't have a lot to complain about.

Yes! Nice changes for the better. A Nice Surprise.

  • Summary: I've been jonesin' for a good baseball game since the good old days of Acclaim Sports and the EA versions of MLB. When 2K locked up the MLB franchise and locked out EA I was really disappointed in the 2K game play, the controls, and many other things. I've only played 3 games with the new 2K9 MLB but the difference for the better was immediately noticed. YES! Nice coding 2K. You notice nice little improvements everywhere.

Better than 08

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Overall this game is better than 08. Aside from the issue on throws to 1st base, this game is pretty solid. I haven't really done much with the online because of how laggy it was in 08 when playing online, also, I don't really care to play against other people in that fashion. It's a good buy, but until they patch the issue at 1st base, be prepared for a bit of aggravation.
  • Pros: The new pitching control makes it a lot more enjoyable than in 08. The overall gameplay is better than 08 and not as choppy/buggy.
  • Cons: Menu's are a little annoying until you really get used to them. Many times on throws to 1st base the 1st baseman comes off the bag, even on a throw in the green on the throw meter, causing unnecessary errors, which is QUITE annoying. The graphics aren't as nice as in 08, but I guess that's why it's not as choppy and buggy. I'm a Red Sox fan and therefore use them in the game and it stinks that the scoreboard on the Green Monster doesn't work in this edition. Other tha...

Very Good with minor flaws

C Man 11 , GameStop
7 March 2009
  • Summary: I have played many baseball videogames in my life, and this is one of the best. It picks up where it left off last year but in my opinion made the hitting and pitching a lot more enjoyable. The graphcis are simply astounding, but when it comes to the players mitts you can tell they needed to put more time into it.

Some issues but so far is pretty good

M. Gerhardt "gerh113", Amazon

  • Summary: So far this is a pretty good baseball game. The franchise system is good (so far). The pitching and batting systems work well. The base running system is great and easy to pick up. The commentary seems just as repetitive as ever and sometimes flat wrong. Fielding is the only weakness I see. It is just not very smooth...jumpy at times for lack of a better word. Errors seem to happen too often on default but I think there is a slider for this.
