    A severely flawed game that could have been far better had it undergone further testing. The freeze bug is absolutely crippling and has even caused retailers like EBGames and GameStop to reduce the amount of money they'll offer for the game in trade-in value.
  2. What we basically have here is a glossed-over version of the game with very little addition and a $20 price drop, not to mention some horrible freezing problems that send this game to the showers.

The whole baserunning/wild throw thing is a problem, but the fact that the teams have a full roster gives it a boost. There are too many made up players, but some are 2K employees, such as Umrao Mayer, Butch DeBerry, and Kelson Hootman. The fact that you can change a player's stats is a pro and con. Pro: You can make players who're good now but totally sucked in the game (ie Jacoby Ellsbury, Troy Tulowitzki, Stephen Drew, Josh Bard) good. Con: You could make your team amazingly awesome and all the other teams really sucky. Then when playing, it'd be no fun. Rhetoric online feature's also pretty cool. I'd give it a 7.7 or 7.8, so I just rounded up to 8. Full Review »

    I think the game is o.k besides sides the stupid anti-bonds situation and the baserunning.
