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

Guys, I am sorry. I really tried hard to like this game. I played 3 games. Lost all 3 by at least 5 runs. I was the Mets with Santana on the hill, I gave up 14 hits in 5 innings. 6 were homeruns. I was painting the corners and they cpu was still crushing it. I tried lowering the AI hitting and contact, it didn't help. I also couldn't hit for crap. No home runs in the 3 games.

In the 3 games I played. The first base glitch happened 3 times in each game.

Let me just say that I think this game has a solid core. With some tuning and a few bug fixes it could be great.

I just don't have the patience for this to happen. I have to have a baseball game that I enjoy. So I got a PS3 and the Show.

I really hope the game gets patched soon so the xbox only crowd has a great baseball game to play this year.

Sorry that you didn't get any value from the game pjv. It really seems to be a game that some people can't stomach and I can understand why.

Hey, there's no shame in going with what you like, or not staying with what you don't like. If I had the money to get a PS3 and the Show I probably would (and Killzone 2...looks good). It overall is probably the better game.

And, it's simply just try to get the cursor to hit the ball as it crosses the plate? Or is there more to it?
Turn on zone hitting in your controller setup menu. Yes you just need to match the sweet spot of the bat (or any other part to hit the ball as it comes in from the pitcher).

turn off the catcher suggestions, call your own game and pitch to the IE scouting report as much as you can. It makes a big difference, at least for me.

Shaking off the catcher is also a good idea, you can do that by hitting "A" and he'll call something else and change location.
