Major League Baseball 2K12 hasn't really changed much from last year, which is good and bad. The hitting and fielding are solid, but the pitching can get too complicated with the various gestures required to perform certain throws. The game also struggles to properly represent ball movement, most notably speed and velocity. At times, it feels as if the ball floats out there a bit too long. Also, players remain stiff, with awkward transitions between movements. It's a decent option for diehard baseball fans. However, if you're a casual fan, this game can stay on the bench.
