Pitching is just as good. Batting camera is ok, dont like the pitcher being so far out
I'm not worried about the framerate issue. It hasn't been mentioned in any early reviews so I'm guessing (hoping) it's just an issue with the demo.

I have both this and Top Spin 4 downloaded and can't wait to play either tonight.

The issue is the hitting. It is just not nice when you see replays and not as smooth as the other game. but pitching is masterful

It's always good to have a positive outlook, but with the 2K's past history in this series, for anyone to not worry about the framerate issue may be kidding themselves. Oh...it's a problem!

The framerate is not a deal breaker. It is slight and no biggie

What is really annoying is that you cannot take practice cuts after a pitch and I have already seen 4 of those soft liners right at the first baseman and ss

I thought I read those were removed or lowered. I hate that

I like that after every pitch the game does not fast foward to the next pitch instead of letting the batter adjust and things of that nature. That is now fixed

Well the batter stepping out after a pitch or taking a practice cut is only for human hitting. The cpu hitters go right back to their batting stance which is wack and takes away from the presentation

Hitting feels smooth but not where it should be. I hate the throws when fielding. It feels like there is no weight to the ball or players, they just kind of float out there and on one occasion, I bunted with Timmy to move the runner from first to second and the bunt went in front of the mound and the pitcher (Wilson) grabbed it and threw a rocket to first to get me out but if felt like he threw a plastic wiffle ball. There is just no weight to throwing as a fielder

I hit a walk off homer with Torres to win the game and the players mob you at home plate which is nice

A good improvement in some rough spots from last year but still not where I wish it was

Played 1 game. Love it. Graphics slightly improved. Fielding is pro. Hitting and Pitching batter pitcher interface same as last year. Game feels great. There does seem to be some frame rate issue when ball put in play. It seems to be on flys. I want it fixed but, It does not interfere with gameplay. I mean it doesnt cause you to screw up.

I made 2 errors. 1 because of the new controls (learning) 1 on a bobble at third by fat *** sandoval. This is last years game with errors and injuries fixed. It is in a word awesome.

In my first game I lost to tex 4-2. It was great, I almost came back on em because of working the count. In no game since HH can I work the count to as much satisfaction as 2k10 and that is intact for 2k11.

I cannot freakin wait 7 days.

Since we don't have a demo questions thread yet... Giants4natic, I'm assuming we're getting Giants vs Rangers, yes? Also, is hitting still the same as far as pushing up is normal, back and up is power? (I'm not a fan of that, as I wish every hit had to be loaded, ala 2K8 and The Show). How are the player models and lighting?

Thanks for all the impressions dude.
