Not quite ready for the majors. It's that time of year again. Spring training is in full swing, and the MLB season is inching ever closer to beginning. This time...

Solid pitching mechanic ; Living rosters

Too many glitches ; Batting is too easy ; Spotty fielding ; Questionable AI

Pokemon Platinum Version

 

I placed Pokémon Platinum next to Diamond playing on another DS, and was surprised at the slight changes. Your playable characters now sport more wintry outfits. A bumbling investigator bumps into you from time to time, and the game shows you...

Another year, another baseball season which means another baseball game. So far this year we have seen two 40+ year old pitchers sign with teams (one of them new), arguably the best baseball player in the game today admitting to taking steroids, and...

Nothing groundbreaking in the latest installment of the MLB 2K series that would set this apart from any other sports title. You will get your money's worth with the Franchise mode and the constant free roster updates. MLB 2K9 is good enough to make it...

In an effort to re-establish an identity for 2K Sports' ball game franchise, Major League Baseball 2K9 has lost it, totally.

Boasting technical merit is several key areas, Major League Baseball 2K9 nonetheless fails miserably with a perplexing lack of videogame fundamentals, like playability.

Major League Baseball 2K9 - Review

 

With Spring fast approaching, the annual sports franchises begin to make the rounds with this year's version of 2K's Major League Baseball franchise. With last year's effort so close to perfection, fans will be a bit disappointed to see that this...

While the fielding controls themselves are solid, the game has some nagging glitches that can make for frustrating games. The most noticeable issue is with first basemen randomly stepping off the base before they catch the ball. It is not a result of...

Major League Baseball 2K9 Game Review - Xbox 360

 

MLB 2K9 may be a sign that 2K Sports should stop building upon this unstable foundation and start anew, much like the transition EA went through when Triple Play Baseball was killed and MVP Baseball debuted. This is not the baseball sim it portrays...

You can’t not buy a baseball game if you're an Xbox 360 owner

You don't want to directly give money to 2K Sports or you love the long ball

2K's latest baseball game shows improvement but a few bugs keep it from winning the Pennant.

Major League Baseball 2K9 Review

 

Major League Baseball 2k9 is a good option for the casual baseball fan, but die-hards will find a lot with which to quibble.

Plays a pretty good game; looks and sounds like an authentic baseball game; plenty of options for both off and online play; the only option for MLB fans on the Xbox 360

Batter pitcher battle is weak, with pinpoint control for pitchers and batters who don't take nearly enough called strikes. Fielding control can be tricky; too many bugs, both big and small

Whether or not MLB 2k9 is for you depends largely on whether or not you'll find its issues a mere annoyance or a deal braking violation of how the game of baseball should be represented in a video game. If a truly authentic hitter/pitcher battle is...

Spring training starts today – 2K Sports has released MLB 2K9 this week on multiple platforms. We were pleased to receive the Xbox 360 version in for review, and although I don't have a great history of playing baseball games, MLB 2K9 was easy to get...

MLB 2K9 gets a lot right, but has some key issues too. As always, it's not a bad idea to rent first before making the purchase.
