Summary: This game has been universally panned by both critics and fans alike. And honestly, I don't know why. What I never heard of was this game causing the Red Ring of Death. Before I could even play a single inning, the game kept freezing up at the intro of a game until I finally got the RROD. Now if THAT happened to everybody, I could understand the bad reviews. But as far as I know mine was an isolated incident and it just so happened it was my time to get the RROD.
Summary: this will review will have you loving this baseball game before i tell you how to stop errors in the field i like to tell you how of a real experience i am having playing this game, graphics are top notch, the sound, i rate a ten. the camera angles are what you make it. i prefer the view behind the pitcher. the controls are easy too.
Summary: If you are truly a baseball player like myself (collegiate baseball) then you will love this game. It has the feel of a real hardcore baseball environment and it has a good feel for the players. It really does the 2K company a lot of good by producing this game. This 2K9 is probably the best baseball game 2K Sports has come out with in at least 4 years. I am very happy that I got this game. I have not been able to put it down.
Stop complaining and take the time to get used to the controls

Summary: People are writing bad reviews after playing the game for about 5 minutes. The pitching controls are not impossible at all, they just take a little while to get used to. And they're really fun once you do get used to them. Stop writing bad reviews because you're too lazy to spend a little time to learn the controls. It's challenging, but not annoying, hitting home runs isn't really easy but definitely possible.
