I just played a great game losing 1-0 to Peavy using Joe's sliders. The AI agressiveness was only toned down a little. They still hack too much for my liking. Also, I felt the CPU threw way too many strikes. Hopefully sliders will tone the CPU's obsessive strike throwing.

Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

things i love about the game:

1) players still swinging left and right at pitches over the plate. even with 3-0 counts and bases loaded.....effing awesome 2k!!!!

2) the horrible stutter when the ball is in play. i thought this was 360 and not nintendo. man what a letdown. as much as i wanted to like this game, i ,ay have to put this on ebay as i figure this is the last patch.....

im not trying to troll but this is a disgrace.

Cpu batting aggressiveness is definitely toned down on my end. Threw many strikes with no swings from the computer.

Still way too many strikes thrown by the cpu. And most are right there on the edge of the zone.

Outfielder slowdown is still in...didn't notice anything different in this area. Not sure if this was on the patch list though.

I've noticed..the AI take more pitches when my reliever is in there...It could just be me, I only played 1 game, actually I'm still in that game. I'll play a couple more before I judge

The patch helped big time.

I've played 3 games this am and it's much much better.

Not perfect but much better.

I struck 2 guys out looking this am. Never had that happen before.

The 1st base thing seems to be fixed

I only picked off 1 runner after multiple tries.......He had a huge lead and I nailed the throw to 1st base.

It's the best baseball game on the 360

Things I noticed in 5 inning exhibition game STL (me) at MIL

1. CPU aggressiveness fix is seen best on Legend. When I dropped it down to All-Star, they would swing more. Walked a couple of hitters without trying. Had 80 user pitch count in the 5th inning.

2. CPU had two homeruns barely clear the wall, one curving into the right field corner. Did not see a HR hit in that location in about 100 games before the patch.

3. Outfield animation does not slow down when going for the catch...much better!

4. NO MORE batter snap into stance..YES

What does this even mean? I'm pretty sure the game has a variable umpire feature, meaning the strike zone is different from game to game, reflecting the fact that in real life different umpires will call a different strike zone from game to game.

I guess if you are constantly throwing balls in the dirt and getting called strikes then you can complain, but if the strike zone isn't an exact box that is called consistently every game, then hey, that's called baseball.
