Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

I think for audio sakes i think they should go ahead with announcers who sound good no matter there status. What im trying to say if we get people with easier schedules or work with like paid audio actors. They can record a ubscene amount of dialog ala...NFL 2k5. Its a shame that audio from crowds to announcers are so bad. MLB 2008 had such good commentary its scary how real it sounded.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

One more thing I just remembered. When you get to the playoffs (or if you incorporate a playoff mode)...allow us to set a 3 or 4 man rotation instead of making us set 5 starters. The majority of teams do not use a 5 man rotation in the playoffs..and will put their #5 (or sometimes their #4 and 5 starters) in the bullpen for long relief. This way when you play a team (say the Cubs)...instead of them going to a Howry or Marshall in the 4th inning...Marquis will be warming up...which is somewhat realistic.

1. Get rid of that stupid horn after a home run. Never hear it at most Ballparks.

2. Completely redo the cyberfaces. Look so, so horrible.

3. Complete the portraits. Bobby Abreu is still wearing a Phillies hat, and this is his, what? his third year in NY?

4. Pitching needs to be built from the ground up. They can't get the right pitches for each pitcher.

5. Batting animations are horrible. Needs to be rebuilt.

6. Complete minor leagues or at least Baseball America's top 100.

I can go on and on. This is one of the worst Baseball games of all time. They need a major overhaul and a few months isn't going to cut it. Please sell your rights to back to EA, and hire some of the guys over at MVP/EA mods to do the faces, uniforms, and stadiums, they do a superb job.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

I believe 2K baseball is a lost-cause. They had something good going with 2K7, but somehow they took a huge step backwards with the disaster that was 2K8....there is no way the developers could test and play this game day in and day out, and not realize how terrible it is. 2K needs to just suck it up and put some effort into their baseball product....everyone knows what baseball should look and play like, so do it and do it right!

Developers, please listen to the above post!!!! I have been playing this game a little more recently and I really believe that the gameplay of 2k8 with the look of 2k7 would have warranted a score of about 8+. There are some real good ideas here so don't scrap the whole thing despite what some have said.

But I can't stress enough how bad the game looks (especially the lighting). While I was playing earlier today, my son walked into the room and wanted to know if I was playing an old bc x box game! OUCH!
