About this product
- Product InformationGaming's reigning cross-platform baseball franchise plays through the 2009 pro season in the streamlined Major League Baseball 2K9. Overall, 2K9 is designed to be more accessible and easier to control than recent 2K baseball games. Compared to the previous year's game, pitching controls rely more on the accuracy of the thumbstick than on the timing of the release. Timing is no longer everything in the hitting mechanics, either, as players can simply hold the thumbstick back until they are ready to swing in 2K9, with no need for a preliminary backswing step. Fielding and base-running controls are more accessible as well.
Along with high-definition graphics, the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of MLB 2K9 offer a number of enhancements for Internet-connected players. Building on an updated edition of the dense statistics system that drives the series' Major League realism, the game's "Living Rosters" feature can automatically trade and players in the video game to match the roster changes made by actual teams, throughout the 2009 season. Players can edit together highlight reels from their own games, adding graphics and sound effects for a true TV-style presentation, and then upload them to the 2K Sports website. A slew of in-game accomplishments are acknowledged as Xbox Achievements and PS3 Trophies
2K9 also aims to provide a realistic ballpark experience, for gamers on any platform. Leading off the line-up of aesthetic enhancements is an "living world" presentation that allows players to move seamlessly from the dugout to the batter's box, as umpires, coaches, players, and other personnel perform their own actions naturally in the background. The in-game Topps brand trading card system returns with updates as well. In the broadcast booth, the team of Gary Thorne calling the action and Steve Phillips providing color commentary is new to the series in 2K9.

Two steps forward, one step back
This game is best better than last year's game. It runs smoother, it looks better, and in the beginning at least it is simply better during the actual game. However, some issues still carry over, and some new things exist: 1) Hitting the ball against the wall can result in the fielder merging into the wall and getting stuck. This is only resolved by jogging all the way home and scoring. I mean, maybe you could have gotten a triple...and this happened twice in two consecutive innings. 2) Sometimes you throw the easy out to first, and the dude is simply stupid and isn't on the bag. There's no way to easily rectify this if this is a bang-bang play, but if you beat out the runner by a lot, you can wheel the fielder around to tag him out. Maybe. 3) Pitching is a bit too easy now. There have been times I've just gotten lazy and just jerk the stick ever which way, and a perfect pitch comes out. 4) And...while we're at it, the AI in this game is not so good. Stealing bases is harder in this game; you have to time it just right, but the button to steal is apparently on a delay. You can't just punch the button once you see the pitcher start the windup. That makes it a lot harder. However, if you screw up and start charging for second while the pitcher still has the ball, you can still return to your base easily, even if you go 3/4ths of the way to 2nd. Also, the CPU will not take balls that much. 3, 4, and 5 pitch innings are common for you. Therefore, stamina is not really an issue. 5) As noted before, stats for the opposing team is not available unless you buy the stuff during the game, and even then you don't get to see the batting order, which is ridiculous. That should be a no brainer. It sometimes feels like a hockey player designed the baseball stat mechanism. Even after all of that, though, this isn't that bad of a game to play. If you're really serious about baseball and stats, you probably won't like the game. For the casual fan of baseball or of baseball games, this isn't the worst. Basic improvements to this game result in a much better game than last year, but they clearly have room for improvement. ADVICE: If you are getting this game because you have an XBOX, ok. If you have a PS3, get the other baseball game; I think it's a lot better. Read full review

Gets Better Every Year
2K sports is getting very close to producing the ultimate baseball game for the 360.....Unfortunately this game is slowed by some little bugs that a casual gamer can overlook or may not even notice but seasoned gamers will quickly pick up on. This years version has smoother pitching and hitting, great crowd animations, excellent commentary and decent graphics. I enjoy this game very much and can't wait until next years version. If next years isn't AWESOME I will lose faith in 2k sports. They have had ample time to get this thing right. From 1 -100 I give MLB 2K9 an 80....

The worst video game I've ever bought
I have never been more disappointed in a company's product. There are so many glitches that I truly believe they should be fined or punished by the government for scamming consumers. They spent a hell of a lot of time on those catchy Tim Lincecum commercials, yet it is hard to make it through a whole game without feeling the effects of the glitches this game has. Franchise mode (the only reason I bought this game) is completely useless because every time you save the game freezes, thus you can never complete a season. Other in game glitches include your first basemen randomly getting pulled off the base (sometimes 2 or 3 or 4 times in one inning) on routine throws to first, sometimes outfielders circle around where the ball will land as if there is a force field preventing the out from being made, sometimes when I've made a pitching substitution late in the game the pitching menu just goes away. Aside from these glitches they also took away some of the features from 2k8 like how you can browse through the trade screens. This is probably one of the worst video games to ever be released on the market and 2k sports won't even talk to the consumer about it (they are basically ignoring the existence of the game). PLEASE JOIN ME IN BOYCOTTING ALL 2K SPORTS GAMES UNTIL THEY GET OFF THEIR HIGH HORSE AND ADDRESS THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THAT WERE FUCKED OVER BY THE COMPANIES GREED FROM WANTING TO GET THE GAME ON THE MARKET BEFORE THE KINKS WERE WORKED OUT. GIVE ME A REFUND, A FREE WORKING COPY OF MLB 2K10, OR AT LEAST AN APOLOGY AND UNTIL THEN FUCK YOU 2K SPORTS! Read full review

I am a big fan of baseball video games, all the way back to the Sega Genesis. And the fun has always come down to pitching and hitting. If these two parts of the game are fun, the game has a great chance to be a winner. And the pitching and hitting in MLB 2K9 is as fun as I can remember. This game may have some hiccups and bugs, but it is still very fun. It is also the only baseball game you are going to be able to get on the X-Box 360. Bottom Line: If you love baseball and have an X-box 360 give this game a shot, you will have a lot of fun.

MLB 2k9 to the max!
The game controls you can easily get used to! And that was the first thing on my mind before I bought the game! But the controls are easy and you will adapt to them fast! The graphics couldn't be better! Every little detail is added in this one of a kind game! The batter's swings and the pitcher's pitches look exactly like they do in real life. The game modes are great and the Homerun derby is realistic and very addicting, but the rest of the modes are addicting as well! If you are a Baseball lover or just like the game, then this is the game for you! It is very great to play with your friends on your console or online! The connection is great and there are no lags! Online it keeps track of your statistics and standings! This game is really sure to please!
