DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!!

Gameplay is also full of glitches- errors often count for hits (I had a not hitter going in the 9th inning when a muffed ball hit directly to a fielder was called a hit!). In addition, just about anything hit to right field at Fenway becomes a ground rule double. I actually had 7 ground rule doubles in one game! In addition, it is almost impossible to tell what type of pitch is coming- there is no way to read the seams of the ball out of the pitchers hand, and the CPU almost never throws balls. In a recent game, Barry Zito actually threw strikes on an 0-2 count 7 different times! Apparently the developers of this game are nerds who have never actually strapped on spikes and played a real game of baseball. Finally, online play is TERRIBLE, as lag and frame rate issues make the game almost unplayable.
I literally can not believe that 2K released a game this full of bugs. Have they ever heard of Beta Testing? How can the same company that produced Bioshock have made this mess of a game? Surely heads should roll at EA Los Angeles.
Looks like it's back to MVP 05 again for me! Shame on EA Sports and the Madden team for creating this exclusive licensing mess! Even though I spent $60 on this game, I am going to mail it back to 2K sports and request a refund for my "broken" product.
Allow me to re-iterate- DO NOT BUY THIS GAME.
