Major League Baseball 2K8


The MLB 2K series has been around for a few years now, and there have been mixed feelings about it since the beginning. The gameplay has generally been solid, albeit choppy in some cases. The presentation has been decent as well, but there really isn't...

MLB 2K8 is one of those games that hurts to play because you just know it could have been so much better. The makings of a great game are all here, but it ultimately fails to reach that status. Don't get me wrong, lovers of the genre will find some fun...

Major League Baseball 2K8 review for the XBOX360


There's lots to do; It's baseball; Good graphics; They're trying

but bad player movements; ...but putting their energy in the wrong places; Frame-rate issues; Inaccurate numbers

Foot in the bucket.

Major League Baseball 2K8 Review


A deeply flawed game whose considerable promise is cut down by its spotty release condition.

When playing MLB 2k8 I'm reminded of the story of the frog prince. There's this pervasive feeling when playing it that if you could but summon a maiden to offer it a firm kiss on the cheek that it would suddenly turn into the King of Diamonds that...

Major League Baseball 2k8 on Xbox 360


Pretty Gameplay, Plain Presentation

So indeed, there are some aesthetic shortcomings with MLB 2k8, but everything else in the game is absolutely excellent. With controls that make things challenging but rewarding, the game is just what baseball fans have been waiting for. And despite...

Major League Baseball 2K8 Game Review - Xbox 360


You don't have a PS3 and must have a baseball game

You fear that 2K will once again disappoint

MLB 2K8 Review


With EA's recent renewal of their exclusive deal with the NFL, it reminded gamers of the limited options they have for sports titles. This year's one and only 360 Major League Baseball simulation-style offering attempts to buck the trend of slow to...

After gloving a ground ball up the middle, a quick flick of the stick to the right will open a vertical meter next to the player. Release the button at the desired power level, ideally, when it is still in the green, and throw out the runner at first....

Major League Baseball 2k8


2K Sports' Major League Baseball 2K8 is the second year of a three year project to completely revamp this franchise. The focus this year was to rewrite pitching, batting, and fielding from the ground up, and to utilize the next gen graphics...

This is another solid entry from 2K Sports, and with the same group working on MLB 2K9 next year is looking good as well. The pitching is ground breaking and the rest is solid, with the exception of the frame rate issues. Definitely worth playing.

Major League Baseball 2K8


A major improvement in pitching is offset by a drop-off in visual quality

New pitching mechanics ; Lots of historical players ; Trading Card mode

Choppy visuals in the field ; Ugly, ugly player faces ; Awkward home run trots

Major League Baseball 2K8


MLB 2K8 is a big ball of frustration.

Great new pitching mechanic; improved Swing Stick and fielding; nice hit variety

Terrible slowdown issues; laggy online play; some basic baseball gaffes; boring atmosphere

Major League Baseball 2K8


REVIEW: Still in rebuilding mode

Unique pitching mechanic that adds challenge without also adding frustration

Eye-grating framerate when you're out in the field.; Annoying fielding and AI baserunning woes

Will EA resurrect MVP Baseball when 2K's third-party exclusivity deal expires in 2012?
