MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 2K7 is better in every way than the previous year's version -- and on the Xbox 360 and PS3, it's better than gorgeous: It's realistic. Players look -- and even walk to the plate -- just like their real world counterparts. Defense is a bit problematic: The player will sometimes miss the ball inexplicably. This isn't an error as scored in baseball, but rather a graphical glitch that causes a fielder to run toward a grounder but fail to even reach for it.

Another problem, depending on your perspective, is the stats. Real baseball involves a lot more strikes than hits. Video game baseball has traditionally made batting easier to keep the game moving smoothly and make it more fun for gamers who aren't obsessed with baseball stats. Major League Baseball 2K7 may have put too much emphasis on hitting, but most kids won't even notice.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
