Major League Baseball 2K5 Review (Xbox)

Talk Xbox has posted their review of Major League Baseball 2K5, giving it a 9.2 out of 10.
"MLB 2K5 is one hell of a baseball game. Everything from the graphics to the gameplay to the sound, itís just great! It's also not just a roster update this year, it's a whole new game, and for $19.99 it's a steal (pun intended). It's the best $20.00 I've spent all year and if you buy it hopefully it will be for you too. In my opinion, MLB 2K5 is the best baseball game ever created. That might sound crazy, but seriously I haven't played a baseball game this good since ESPN MLB for the Sega Genesis. If you're a baseball fan, then you will love how this game feels just like watching a baseball game on ESPN. So crack out the beers and open the chips, and by all means buy this game!"

"The animations are smooth as silk -- everything from the way the pitcher throws the ball to how the batter swings the bat."



It was a decent review, but he seemed to gloss over a lot of the problems in this game.

Animations are ok...but smooth as silk?

I think not

It's a great game, but I think that score is a little too high with some of the bugs in the game. Maybe an 8-8.5 range from me.

It was a good review but they definately did overlook a few things here and there.

Re: Major League Baseball 2K5 Review (Xbox)

Why didn't people say the same for MVP last year? They overlooked every game-killer bug.

I mean, I agree that they overlooked them here, but I also do on the MVP reviews... other hypocrites don't seem to think so.

I don't know, I'm guessing they're the same people who say all the games are about even yet the number scores doesn't indicate it.
