The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is a straightforward simulation of Major League Baseball. Players guide one of 32 teams through games or seasons and World Series glory. The game is playable online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to children under the age of 12.
What's it about?
MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 2K10 is a simulation of Major League Baseball. Players guide a team through individual games or a season and potential World Series glory. Players can also choose to create their own athlete and lead them to an All-Star career for the first time. Athletes start in the minor leagues and must work their way through the ranks to earn a gig with an MLB team. This year's release doesn't feature anything else new, other than tweaking the game's pitching and batting mechanics.
Is it any good?
Although Major League Baseball 2K10 introduces few new compelling features, what is mort important is that the game solves many of the problems that plagued last year's title. The action is much smoother, making the game more playable. Batting is relatively simple, and feels comfortable. Pitching requires some level of skill, which makes performing some throws rewarding. However, it also makes pitching more complicated. This can be adjusted by updating control layouts and using the buttons to pitch instead. The new My Player feature adds to an already deep package of options. Although this title lacks the polish of the competitive MLB 10: The Show for PS3, owners of the Xbox 360 and other consoles finally have a worthy baseball title to rely on.
Online interaction: Players can play and interact with others online.
