Bad Game!

This game is great for all ages, if you like a bore. The player vs system game is impossible, it is hard to control your pitches, and it is very difficult to win, even on the easiest difficulty. The only good part of the game is 2 player, but still, all games are a slugfest due to impossible pitching.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Expect many of the standard baseball modes, from franchise to home run derby. If you prefer to avoid the major leagues, you have the choice of 90 minor-league teams at your disposal. Atmosphere is captured effectively through vibrant stadiums and impressively-detailed players. The game's greatest weakness is the lack of smooth action. Plays consistently look choppy. Even a simple throw from the second baseman to first stutters along clumsily. As great as the innovations in MLB 2K8 are, they're difficult to enjoy with such sloppy on-field action.
