Summary: True to the real thing. Difficulty sliders are a bit off, so those need to be manually changed when you start. For instance, every infielder plays like a gold glover on the current settings, including Rookie mode. So fix them after. However, this limits the Card Collection aspect of the game.
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.
Summary: I am a big fan of baseball video games, all the way back to the Sega Genesis. And the fun has always come down to pitching and hitting. If these two parts of the game are fun, the game has a great chance to be a winner. And the pitching and hitting in MLB 2K9 is as fun as I can remember.
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.
Summary: 2K sports is getting very close to producing the ultimate baseball game for the 360.....Unfortunately this game is slowed by some little bugs that a casual gamer can overlook or may not even notice but seasoned gamers will quickly pick up on.
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.
