5 out of 5 eggsVery Glitcy

Pros: The graphics were good and the controls were nice

Cons: Glitches like crazy and worst part is the AI abuses it. Once you know of them you'll most likely use them online but everyone else does as well so it becomes a glitch war. The game after 2 weeks just stopped reading and my 360 has never overheated or had this problem with any disc. I sold it quickly.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it's not worth it MLB games get worse every year the only good one left is The Bigs 1 since 2 wasn't good. Or if you have a PS3 get the Show

1 out of 5 eggsToo Glitchy

Pros: The graphics are great and the new interactive full-control felt great but sadly other than that it is a standard baseball game.

Cons: I found that many glitches were exploited by the CPU which threw me off. For example you will get picked off when on 2nd unless you hold the runner by holding the trigger. After playing approximately 6 games the game now freezes during loading sequences after the game finishes. Even if I select "quit and save" it will freeze. At first I thought it was my 360 but every other game has never had this problem. Also this was installed onto my HDD. I uninstalled it and nothing fixed so I sold it now as a used game in Gamestop.

Other Thoughts: Decent if you want a baseball game but too glitchy and shouldn't be purchased. These games get worse and worse each year.
A quick fix for this get The Bigs and you should be fine.

3 out of 5 eggs2k9 striking out again...

Pros: Graphics looked decent to an extent. Interface in-game was rather simplistic and well done. Pitching and hitting was easy to do.

Cons: A massive amount of bugs in the gameplay. Outfielders getting lost at the wall or running absurdly slow at a pop fly and it falling in. Hitting seemed scripted...in other words, if you try to pull it down the line to left field, you might get two different outcomes of ball placement...not varied enough. The off the field interface was a bit confusing at first and took a day or so to get used to.

Other Thoughts: This game makes me want to sell my 360 and get a PS3 and The Show. I had last years The Show for PS2 and it was a fantastic game. This game is far from a horrible game....but it is absolutely no where near I expect a baseball game to be. I would rather play Ken Griffey Jr baseball for the N64 than this game to be honest.

5 out of 5 eggsLost of fun, the best baseball game available by far.

Pros: Great baseball game, great graphics, lots of options, very fun

Cons: It took a little while to figure out all the controls, what does what. But that is because there are so many options.

Other Thoughts: After reading the past reviews, I was hesitant to buy this game. But it turns out purchasing it was a great decision - this is a very fun game. The graphics are awesome - by far the best graphics of any baseball game I've ever played. The realism in the stadiums is amazing - down to the corporate sponsorship logos and all. The movement of the players is fluid and smooth. Somebody gave this game a bad rating because it's hard to pick off a runner on first base. Of course it's hard to pick a runner of on first base. How often does that happen in the majors. Usually, it just results in the runner sliding back to the bag - which he does in the game also.

The game automatically updates on the internet if your console is connected and downloads the most up to date rosters, so if your player gets traded to another team in real life he does on MLB2k9 also.

You can get caught in between bases trying to steal and get put into the middle of arundown which is pretty cool too.

FUN GAME

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: Better Crowd Graphics

Cons: More bugs than any other year. My season corrupted itself and now I can't even play it. I highly regret buying this game in every possible way. Avoid this year at all costs.

Other Thoughts: Since 2k brought the game back in-house some transition hiccups are to be expected, but not this many. This game is flat out unplayable and I've bought every 2k baseball for 360. Maybe next year they will have squashed the numerous bugs.

4 out of 5 eggsBetter than 08

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 than the issue at first base, the other cons aren't that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: 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.
