    Baseball without Balls

    i've been attempting to play MLB 2K9 since the day it was released. it was unplayable due to glitches for a few weeks. some glitches were fixed with a patch. MLB 2K9 isn't really a baseball game, its a huge $60 advert... Read Full Review

    Definitely not what you expect in a PS3 baseball game. It felt like I was playing the Playstation 1 again..

    Steve Phillips is(was) one of my favorite baseball announcers despite all the bad news about him lately ruining his reputation.. and Gary Thorne does a pretty good job, but I grew up hearing him on the hockey side, so I ... Read Full Review

    It's a basically good and fun game, at its core. But the core is surrounded by glitches, kinks, and annoyances.

    I grabbed the game at Target. It was on sale, 20% off, and though I had heard terrible things about 2K Games, I had never experienced one of their games for my own. In hindsight, all I can say is thank God it was on sale... Read Full Review

    Why Do I Keep Doing This to Myself?

    I'm vowing to never buy a 2K Sports production ever again. No responsible company would release a product this unfit for public consumption. It's nothing new for those of you who have purchased this title before. 2K S... Read Full Review

    Very frustrating! Hard to control and very inacurate rosters.

    I read some negative reviews on this game but also a couple positives so I decided to give it a try. The controls espeically hitting are very hard. Its awkward to swing with the wii remote and at the same time move ... Read Full Review

    Bad graphics, bad sound, still fun.

    First ever review: This game has no flash and the graphics and sound are not very good, but I still found it to be pretty fun. After having played for two days, batting is still a bit of a challenge. This may be part of ... Read Full Review

    It hurts me - physically...

    The game is ok. It's decent enough to make you play a while but base running and team management are pretty bad. Another bad thing is that the pitching is really dependent upon the "snap" you give it with your wris... Read Full Review

    2k games continues to piss me off!

    Now I thought MLB 2k8 was a great game, but is MLB 2k9 a better game? Well the answer is NO! I had alot of expectations from this game. The gameplay is the same, which is still fun but kinda disappointing. The game STILL... Read Full Review

    Fun but extremely frustrating, as it is full of careless mistakes by the developers.

    This is the only MLB game on the WII and so I bought it. I really did try to love this game and I was willing to get past the graphics since it is on the WII. Playing in an actual game is fun on here--the swinging is p... Read Full Review

    Fun but challenging.

    I think mlb 2k9 is a relly fun game. With the exception of hitting. Sometimes u do great at hitting and sometimes u do really bad. I think the season mode is really fun. Here r some hints for begginers 1. If u want to b... Read Full Review
