  1. It's easily the best looking baseball title 2K Sports has ever put out, and with so many improvements under the hood you'd be hard pressed to pass on this one.
  2. It took a while, but MLB 2K10 has fixed enough, and added enough, to be an excellent way to play a baseball game on your TV. The multiplayer issues need to be fixed as soon as possible, but we're looking forward to the series using this year as a foundation for the future.
  3. The MyPlayer mode is easily accessible, even to those that don't care for Franchise modes, and the improved gameplay (for the most part) and presentation make this game closer to the real thing than the competition.
  4. MLB 2K10 marks the 10th anniversary of the baseball franchise with a greatly improved game that's the best in the history of the series.
  5. Yet great strides have been made in creating a more realistic-playing game, especially when factoring in the assortment of sliders that can adjust the action even further. There are still areas that could use additional polish, but the overall experience is a step in the right direction.
  6. There's nothing new or innovative to the genre here, but there is a lot to enjoy. The half-broken online play needs to be addressed before the series goes forward.

    But this much is certain: when you put the game in and start playing, you'll actually be able to play a game of baseball. That alone is a huge improvement over last year's title.

    This is the type of game where you need to review it for what it is and not compare it to MLB 10 the show because then the game feels very bad.I really enjoy this game and I think 2K is back on track and is going to make a baseball game amazing in 2001 with MLB 2k11.For now,the graphics are great,commentary is the best and the my player mode is awesome!The game play is a big improvement over 2k9 but that game wasn't bad by any means,after the patch was released it actually was one of my favorite baseball games.World series baseball 2k3 was something special and the best baseball game ever at the time and I think it's all gonna come back and they will be on top again but like I said I don't like to compare but MLB 10 the show blew me away!This game is a solid 8.

    Atrocious.

    The Cincinnati Reds were one of the best teams in baseball last year and not a single player looks like there real counterpart.
    Great effort 2K.
    Not to mention the horrible presentation, animations, and gameplay. The only thing this game has going for it is a good commentary. That's it.

    Stay far away if you are a baseball fan.
