Re: ***Official MLB 2K9 Retail Version Impressions***

Just finished my first game. Indians(me) at home against the White Sox. Lost 7-3. Cliff Lee got rocked. They were just hitting everything off me. I did strikeout 4, two looking. I used Guru's sliders, I am gonna try Joes now. (no offense Guru)

I did see the first baseman glitch 2 times.

Progressive field is pretty much perfectly done.

Like the batting and pitching. Fielding is a little sluggish, but not bad at all.

Overall my initial impressions are that it is a good game. If the second patch fixes the 1st base glitch and the cpu hack fest, the game goes from good to great IMO.

Re: ***Official MLB 2K9 Retail Version Impressions***

So far through 1 and a half games...

There is a shocking ammount of balls being called as strikes when I'm at the plate. Not just borderline stuff. I've had maybe about 3 actually called balls. This has a very negative effect as I'm constantly having to hack now.

I've had a problem tagging a runner. My shortstop just stopped when he got to the runner and the runner kept going and was safe.

There's been a combined 51 hits but only 1 HR and that was the AI,I put my power slider at 100 and can't hit a HR.

Terry Francona somehow fell through the field when a pitching switch was made.

The first baseman problem occured 3 times.

The AI managed to hit 2 balls it had no business hitting,one was in the dirt the other was about a foot out of the zone.

I don't like not getting cards because I'm using my own sliders.

It took quite a lot of messing around to get a decent batting camera.

I can't seem to get a double play down because of this crappy fielding/throwing system. I moved the meter influence to 0 so hope that helps.

Other than that it's been pretty good after a bunch of slider adjustments.

Re: ***Official MLB 2K9 Retail Version Impressions***

The strike zone does seem to extend a bit too low, but it may be my batting camera.

Glad you are enjoying it pjv.

I agree that with a patch to the AI tendencies and cleaning up the 1B off the bag issue, this game could last me for a very long time and be a great baseball game. I'd also like to see some of the AI outfield issues (running in place against the wall on certain deep hits) addressed, but overall I'm happy with the game this year but fully expecting a patch.
