I heard reviews that the game was utter crap. If you have the game for 360 please post your review. I am a big baseball fan and I was hoping to have at least a playable game of baseball this year.

Thanks in advance!

The reviews I am refering to are from the PS2 and Xbox versions of the game. Being that this game is a port over it will probably be pretty bad as well. Not sure if the game is out today or tomorrow. But when and if anyone buys this game please give a review.

i thought i remember reading of how this was going to be a great baseball game. all of the previews seemed positive that the exclusive 3rd part lisence was in good hands. im sure it cant be that bad, the 2k series has been one of the best baseball games for years now.

Thats what I thought.

From what I am reading on different message boards the game is barely even playable and feels like complete garbage. But I will give it a rent and see for myself.

yea, i've read good things about this for the 360 and am really excited about it too, so hopefully it's playable.

i think it shipped today, so it should be out tomorrow. maybe if we're lucky ign will review it tonight or something, but probably not. So, i guess we'll have to wait until tomorrow,....

like the topic starter said, once someone gets this(tomorrowish), immediately post your thoughts, we're waiting for some feedback on this.

I thought that I had read something somewhere about this not being a true port. I thought that the main gameplay aspects and stuff were being ported, but that the presentation and graphics were being designed more for the 360 hardware. The presentation is the thing that I have heard the most gripes about. Not too mention that the swing mechanic is brand new and may take a bit to get used to, like the shooting in the basketball games. Either way I will be getting it tomarrow and will enjoy it, cause if I want a baseball game then I don't have much choice.

It's much better than the xbox game was, it runs smother by far. Graphics are better by far. My first game played won 3-2. I like it better tha last years.

Mine keeps freezing up too. Usuaully in the 3rd or 4th inning (between innings). I've only played at the new Busch Stadium so far. Totally f'ed up.

PS My X360 has had ZERO problems on other games. This is definately game related. mad.gif

Three Good things about this game:
Stadium graphics and fans (fully animated, even to the point as some are walking around in outfield bleachers)
Commentary (Joe Morgan and John Miller provide the best baseball commentary ever in a video game)
World Baseball Classic (fun game, even if the rosters and rules aren't 100% correct)

Three Bad things about this game:
Gameplay (It's just terrible. I know some people may enjoy it, I don't. I generally play MVP because the gameplay feels 'connected to what you see on the screen. In MLB2K6, you feel as if you have to anticipate what button to hit before it's time to hit it. Really screws with timing on hitting and on fielding. Baserunning is beyond disconnected.)

Facial likeness (Hardly any of the players are close to the facial likeness of the players they should be. MVP last year on the XBOX looked better as far as facial features. 2k should be ashamed of themselves. As for player models, ridiculous. They tried to simulate cloth and ended up with what looks like fat rolls in the middle of every players uniform. They're arms and legs move but the upper body doesn't. Just really awkward. )

Animations (Throwin, Running, hitting, pitching. Not close on 'signature stuff' and you've got outfielders 'short arming' throws from the outfield fence all the way to home plate. Of course, they throw it hard but the animation is that of a flick. I tried turning a double play from a short stop moving towards second base. He loaded up on the throw to the second baseman standing 5 feet away. Obviously couldn't turn it.)

I spent about 6 hours playing it today. It's fun in some parts, annoying in others. Some stuff is really better than other baseball games of years past, but alot of that is outweighed by gameplay and animations.

It's not worth the $60. But, if you REALLY need a MLB game for the 360 and don't mind the things I said above, go for it.
