    If you have MLB 2k11, DO NOT BUY. Not worth 60 dollars. Same poor graphics, fine subpar gameplay. Buy if you only have an Xbox and are a die-hard baseball fan. Screw rosters, use 2k share to update rosters for free. If you have a Ps3, this is absolutely not worth your money. Buy the Show.

    After 3 years of one team developing this game, it seems like the game suffers due to a lack of effort by the development team. Very little, if anything at all, about the uniforms is accurate to their real life counterparts. Colors are very off - check out the horrible attempt at Yankee blue - and the lettering on the jerseys is lame. Overall, the graphics are not something most peopleAfter 3 years of one team developing this game, it seems like the game suffers due to a lack of effort by the development team. Very little, if anything at all, about the uniforms is accurate to their real life counterparts. Colors are very off - check out the horrible attempt at Yankee blue - and the lettering on the jerseys is lame. Overall, the graphics are not something most people would consider up to par for the last stages of the PS3 and 360. It doesn't seem like there is any actual physics when the ball is in play. The ball bounces 2 or 3 times, then continues to slide across the grass or dirt like a hockey puck on ice. Overall, the game is supposed to be an accurate representation of Major League Baseball and for the most part, that is very untrue. Expand

    just an all around fail effort once again by 2k. they need to just drop the baseball franchise because it can not compete with the show. i guess if your a baseball fan and you have an xbox 360 u should buy it, but if u have a ps3 its a no brainer, BUY THE SHOW

    Game breaking glitches and few minor improvements from previous games make this yet another flop from 2K. If they would spend half as much time fixing their game as they do counting their quarterly profits, this franchise might be able to compete with The Show.

    MLB 2K12 has made some strong strides to improve the overall product. Pitching, as one would expect with the Million Dollar Challenge, is the strongest aspect of this game, and it can be fun if a player enjoys just doing that. The hitting system has taken great strides, but a lackluster My Player mode and many little glitches and graphical blunders take away from an overall product. Improvement still needs to be there in order to get to the big leagues of gaming.

    PS3 owners should rightly gravitate toward the MLB: The Show franchise, while Xbox owners may as well sit out this year entirely.

    This game's better than last year's, but it's not necessarily worth going out and getting if you have the last couple outings.
