Well it's at 0,can't turn it down more than that.

The decrease in HRs has caused an increase in triples. I've hit 2 HRs but 6 triples. Playing as the Giants though,it's hitting off the wall then either off the OF or it'll bounce into the ally or both.

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

It's amazing how one session can turn me around on this game. I was loving it online, and won every game. Now i run into a string of games where the lag is horrible and the game grinds to a halt. You can't check swing, you can't take pitches. It is just horrible. First time since I've gotten it that I had to stop playing mid-game, I just couldn't get any enjoyment was so ever out of it.

Also, I've noticed:

-fielders can run down anything...anything
-when you steal, even when you're safe, you're called out
-the inability to hit curveballs extends to players as well. It's possible if hung, but if it's low, the player never sweeps it off its arc, just mistimes it.
-most players can't make contact when bunting
-the strike zone extends below the knee

Am I the only one having freezing issues still? others have told me that in game save is broken. that could be a game killer for me. Does 2k8 have in game saves?

My 360 RROD after a couple weeks of 2k9...so i took a break, got it back after the patch and gave the game another fair shot...


I'm sorry but this game is terrible...the best decision i made was trading it back in--though next year i won't even bother with it at all.

Fielding, pitching, and batting are all so bad its laughable--but hey if some people are enjoying it, then to each their own I suppose.

I've saved lots of games in the middle of a game and have been able to load it at a later time just fine (knock on wood).

I have had it freeze twice upon loading my franchise and had to start a new one (now I use multiple saves to be safe), but have not had any issues for quite a while now (again, knock on wood).

Post patch, is this game enjoyable? I'm trying to decide whether to purchase or not.

I've been reading through here and the reviews seem so mixed that I'm not really sure what to do. I'm dying for a baseball game, and don't own a PS3.

I think it's worth it, despite all its faults. The game is generally fun, and most of the time, the bugs can be worked around. I say give it a shot.

I love this game, the more I play it the more I like it. I've never played The Show, but I can't see how it could be "much" better than this game.
