Re: Official MLB 2K10 Impressions (360/PS3)

I've read some posts on the 2K forums from people who claim certain players have their actual sig styles (hitters and pitchers) in the game, but they're not properly assigned to the correct players? For instance, I guess some players were given generic stances/windups even though their actual sig styles are available in the game? Is this true?

Re: Official MLB 2K10 Impressions (360/PS3)

Last year you could not switch pitchers between innings. The previous pitcher would always have to take the mound in the inning before you could make a change. Has this been remedied this year?

Are there collisions in the field/on the base paths.

Re: Official MLB 2K10 Impressions (360/PS3)

My impressions are based off of the PS3 demo.

1. The cyberfaces were not well done. You have to have Jeter and Teixeira actually LOOK like them.
2. I don't know how 2k does it but their ambiance always seems livelier, so that feeling from 2k9 is still there, which makes you want to like this game. I wish the demo version for 2k10 actually had play by play, and I read the reason as to why it wasn't included and I find that unacceptable. It is poor advertising in my opinion.
3. I hated how the game would zoom out whenever there is a wild pitch. It takes you away from the action to allow you to see the whole playing field. I hate that.
4. Some of the camera angles for when batters came up to the plate were great, as if you were a camera on the floor in front of them 10ft away.
5. The pitching is way too difficult to pick up, which allowed me to pitch numerous wild pitches. I like the idea of having to do motions for pitching, but after trying it, I think The Show has it better their way. Pitching for 2k10 was a chore, one that I did not succeed at accomplishing.

This game is trying to be sold at full price, and for that, and the reasons mentioned above word for word, I will not be buying this game. I just flat out did not enjoy the experience. I have The Show 09 as I bought it from my brother (he bought `10), so I'm cool for the next year. I wish I enjoyed the 2K10 demo though.

I will try that. I thought I had tried clicking the RS everywhere I could.

That still leaves the inability view the bench and bullpen of your opponent.

good thoughts
i agree about the livelier ambiance.
hard to explain but it feels and sounds more like baseball.
i love the ESPN style player close up throwing the ball around before the game.

they need to seriously patch the bad Pitching ai in terms of subs.
patch errors.
patch in a livelier ball to help with extra base hits

Re: Official MLB 2K10 Impressions (360/PS3)

Just played a full game at my brothers house.
I have to say, it's probably the most fun I've had with a baseball game since MVP2005.

The gesture pitching is incredibly fun and addictive. So far, I saw a couple of flaws that have already been mentioned 1000x, but there's no mistaking how entertaining this game is.

I really don't think this game is that far off from the same stratosphere that the other game is on.
In fact, if I buy a ball game this year it'll probably be 2K10.

Re: Official MLB 2K10 Impressions (360/PS3)

Just had a great pitching duel.

Brewers:
Davis 8 innings,1 run off a HR and 3 strikeouts

Twins (me):
Baker 8 innings,0 runs,6 hits and 7 strikeouts
Nathan had 3 straight outs in the 9th to close.

I'm not sure where these error complaints are coming from. I've seen at least 3 and had one in that game. The 2nd baseman wasn't on the bag for the first half of what should've been a double play but didn't get the guy at first either so that would've been my 5th or 6th blown double play even if he had been on the bag.
