How is the batting? The main reason I stayed away from 2k10 was because they took away Cursor Hitting. Simply pulling the hit stick back and forth, and using only timing didn't sound like fun or realism to me.

Is that how the batting is this year? What are the changes, specific to batting in this years game?

Batting is the same, just pull back and push forward. No zone batting. At least on the demo. I may be wrong though, but the batting seemed the exact same to me

How is baserunning looking? I'm particularly interested in the CPU baserunners. Are they retreating to the bag on 2-out hits? Are they advancing when appropriate? Did the rounding of the bag when running the bases improve?

Thanks for the impressions, guys!

Here is a situation I hope is fixed. When I struck out Hamilton with Timmy it was the last out and Timmy walked back behind the mound looking towards CF and the catcher dropped the ball and ran to the dugout with the rest of the fielders but Timmy acted like he did not know it was the 3rd out and then the it cut to the next inning

The smootheness is there but animations still need tons of work and on one hit to the outfield the outfielder still does that little hop step to throw back in. Real eye sore after this many tries

The running seems fine on both sides. Is hard to gauge real A.I with it being on pro level


Pitching is way to easy and hitting as well.

Also did I mention that those dumb soft liners to the ss or 1b happened 4 times in one 3 inning demo. yuck

I don't want a 9 inning game to take 2+ hours (or even an hour for that matter). To me that's what makes High Heat one the best baseball games ever. You could play a whole game in 20 minutes! If the pitcher/batter interface is good, there is realism (injuries, errors, etc...) and fielding is good i'm happy.
Co-sign! That extra stuff is nice, but I'd rather just be playing the game.

This game is FUN! Let me get my negative impressions out of the way first from the demo build: 1).The graphics while improved are not on the same level as the other game. 2). the transitional animations still need work. 3). Swings are still to quick in some instances. 4). Players still need more life to them- can be zombie like at times.

Now the good stuff! 1). The cameras all around are a thing of beauty! 2). Fielding is the best in a BB game I have ever played! 3). The bat off the ball for the most part feels like that is where it should go! 4). The cpu steals and I threw them out on all three of their attempts! 5). The new tag animations are really cool. 6). You can really tell the difference between fielders. 7). The added subtle emotions to the game that really add to the suspense of the play. I can see how they are on to something there!

Over all the demo is pretty basic unlike the other game but to me besides not looking or animating quite as good, this game is just really fun. I think this is the one I run with this year! Looking forward to MLB today games and maybe a short franchise and some my player.

This is a much improved game and if they get the graphics and transitions ironed out this game will be REALLY good!

The animation transtions are not that good as you explained and that is what makes fielding not as good as it should be. Fielding cannot be considered the best around if the ball has zero weight to it when throwing and the outfielders still do that silly hop before throwing in.

Those are things that should have been fixed from fans complaints last year.
