Not bad...

I guess if it's attractive to customers, I can look past the puff and smoke.

I'll tell you one thing... it should be really tough to make a custom cover template this year.

Agreed :/ Make it blue or something. All 2k's games are red now it seems... lol. NBA 2k12, 2k11, MLB 2k11, Top Spin 4. They like the red haha.
Either way, I havent bought a baseball game since MVP 2005, so I saved my money and I'm buying this one. should be good

Please don't take away our ability to play w custom settings/sliders in online unranked games like you did w the basketball game, 2k! I beg you!

ehhhh its ok. Looks more like a cover for an arcade baseball title then a sim one.

You'd think all that smoke would be appropriate when Lincecum was the cover athlete.

As far as the slightly unjustifiable red background, I (or somebody else) might be able to see what kind of Photoshop magic can be done to make it blue. It might be a little tough, but at the very least I can imagine that being somewhat possible.

That is a horrendous cover. The design might be decent in blue, but the red looks bad, and doesn't fit the fact that the cover athlete plays for the Tigers.

Dislike. That's just me though.
# 12 dodgerblue @ 12/23/11 06:24 PM
Looks like it could be something from the BIGS
# 13 HustlinOwl @ 12/23/11 07:42 PM
I see 2k still deciding to not support the ps3

also, this is coming from a brewers fan myself, but i dont think that braun would purposefully take the peds and i also think that braun should be on the cover. braun is also my most favorite player though so.

This really looks nice. I really believe MLB 2k12 won't disappoint many people this upcoming year. I was and still am a big MLB 2k fan.

Braun wont even be playing the first 50 games due to cheating, not someone they would use to sell their product.

inherent worth of mlb ?

first of all, when i clicked the link it said at the bottom "Retweeted by nunswithherpes and 100+ others" lol.

second of all, what's the deal with all the smoke? Is it a metaphor for 2K using smoke and mirrors to push out a substandard product? Just sayin...
# 20 CabreraMVP @ 12/24/11 02:21 PM
This might be the worst cover I've ever seen. He looks like a character in one of those animated disney movies. The legs are so short and his body is so big, the whole thing is downright horrible and disgusting.

Seriously, this is crazy. Never seen something so bad before. If Disney released a baseball game like the Bigs, I would expect this cover
