Better Pitching Through Analytics
As in the previous release in the MLB 2K series, pitching in MLB 2K10 requires a combination of analysis of scouting reports and hurling technique on the mound. Scouting reports are based on 2K Games' exclusive "Inside Edge" data service, which provides up-to-date information on AI representations of real batters across a wide range of data points. With this players can make an educated guess as to their best chances using particular pitches against a particular batter based on everything from the current count, whether it is a night or day game, to how far into the season it is. Pitching technique is centered around a gesture pitching mechanism, where in players deliver pitches through specific controller inputs using face buttons and/or the analog stick. With regards to this, the difference this time around is that in addition to these enacting inputs, MLB 2K10 incorporates a push button pitch selection system. Players must still input the correct series of gestures for the pitch they intend, which are more difficult for more complex pitches, but this new push button step also provides the game with precise information as to what pitch you intend to throw. With is extra information, which the game uses as a baseline for compiling analytics, players can see where their gestures for particular pitches are off, and correct them as need be.

An Improved Hitting Experience with "Batter's Eye"
Players' experience at the plate has also been improved in MLB 2K10 through a combination of data and new features. Just as with pitchers, batters have access to 2K Sports' "Insider Edge" data to help them make better decisions in specific game situations based on a variety of stats related to themselves if playing as a representative of a real MLB player, or the pitcher they face. But the new feature that completely changes the batters experience in "Batter's Eye." With this, highly skilled batters can get occasional, spilt second views of what the pitch is going to be. Used in conjunction with new batting functionality like defensive and contact swings, batters can potentially fend off pitches until the count is in their favor, and/or they are ready to make an educated guess at what the pitch is going to be and swing accordingly. As with the pitching analytics available in defensive positions, offensive players have access to a batting analyzer at the push of a button to figure out what they are doing wrong and right at the plate.

Fielding and Baserunning
Of course baseball isn't just about initial conflict between pitcher and hitter, so MLB 2K10 gives you all you need to finish the play from any place on the field. Fielding and baserunning in MLB 2K10 features easy controls and tons of great animations just as in earlier releases, but in this most recent version players can also now cue up the actions of their players while on defense, or from the basepads with simple controller inputs. In the case of fielders, once the defensive player is selected, simply press the face button for the appropriate base or cutoff man you want. Once your man makes the stop, he will throw to your chosen spot automatically. This is a big help, especially when trying to turn a quick double play, or in the case of a ball that makes it all the way to the wall. Cueing up the actions of base runners is just as easy. For example, in the event of a full count where you want to send your runners regardless of the pitch, or during a steal attempt, simply select your base runner(s) and use your game controller's trigger to set events in motion. If you change your mind you can just as easily send them scrambling back with a the same trigger.

I really like this game. I spent the time to tweek 2k9 and finally got it fun but 2k10 is all around much better. Right away I configured the controller buttons and scaled down the video (had to go to 800x600 with x2 antialiasing because I have an older video card, geforce 6800 GTO). I recommend doing these two steps before playing. After that it was game on. The graphics are smoother, pitching is better, load times are faster, and it has not crashed on me yet. The announcers are good, hitting is tough as it should be, and this is just an all around fun game. I know 2k has struggled to produce a great baseball game and has taken a lot of criticism in the past. I am greatfull for their continued efforts and their commitment to produce the game for the PC. My days of mourning the loss of the EA sports MVP series are finally over... This game is fun and tough in all the right areas.

The graphics do not seem quite as detailed as 2k9 but I much prefer the faster load times and smoother game play of 2k10. Even with my lower settings the graphics are very good. There are a few quirks as sometimes players don't do what they should and seem confused. This is rare, however, and hasn't taken away from my enjoyment. I play hardball in a 35+ league and see players much more confused than this in real life. Baseball is one of my passions yet I am willing to overlook a few quirks as long as they don't interfere with my enjoyment of the game. My $29.99 was well spent and I'm glad I went and bought it on openning day. Thank you 2k Sports!

(I have not tried out the network play yet so I can't comment on that)

Although the box says you can play this game with a keyboard, it's patently untrue. I bought it with that as a condition, then I had to come back and buy an Xbox for Windows controller. Do NOT buy one of the Amazon-recommended Logitech controllers - they fail regularly and quickly. Spend the extra $10 for the Xbox one. It's reliable, sturdy, and comfortable, plus it's much more of a standard among other games.

The game itself is visually good, with tons of features, but it is taking me forver to learn how to play, as this is my first try with a PC baseball game in about 10 years. I wish there was a beginner/kids level of play where I could just get right into it. Hope this pays off eventually, as I've really waited for a decent PC baseball action game.

I'll be the first to admit that I suck at MLB 2K10 for the PC. This is my first baseball video game and while it looks great, the learning curve is extremely steep, to the point where it's not fun.

The pitching and batting mechanics (using a Xbox360 controller with the PC) are interesting, but you have to be so perfect in the timing and execution that it's a killjoy. While hardcore fans or someone used to the mechanics from a previous MLB 2K not have problems with this, you're going to feel lost if you're a newcomer. Like I said, everything's about timing and execution and the game's drills are very poor in helping you hone your skills. For example, in a pitching drill, every time you throw the ball (a total of fifteen times or so before you need to re-load the drill) you're supposed to do a different pitch. How is that going to teach you anything? It should be set up so if you want to throw a fastball, you can try throwing 200 or so fastballs in a row until you get it right.

My other gripe is the fact that a Xbox360 controller doesn't seem to be 100% compatible with the game. The game mostly works with the Xbox360 controller (mostly, that is; sometimes you can't advance to the next event like pitching the ball because the "A" button doesn't register, although you can drop back to the menus where "A" works fine. This is with a wired Xbox360 controller, btw), but "C" and "D" buttons? Why can't they display "X" and "Y" on the screen? Or have an "Xbox360 mapping setup" config screen where they show a picture of the controller? I'm being nit-picky but you'd think with an Xbox360 controller, controls should be plug-and-play flawless, and they're not.

I'm hoping MLB 2K10 is like typing, a pain to learn but resulting in great rewards if I stick with it.

Started playing this game, and went through all the options. First thing i noticed is there is no options for auto-fielding, or even assisted fielding, so if you're naturally a bad fielder on baseball games, you will get blown out.

Started playing the game after setting the controls up on my PC Controller. The controls are so complicated it's barely playable. If you want to hit for power, by the time you are able to pull DOWN on the right stick, and then push it back UP to swing, the ball passed you 2 or 3 seconds ago. All you can do is just tap up and hope for contact, or bunt yourself into outs.

Got to pitch, finally. Instead of just tapping a button once or twice to pitch, it wants you to hit a button, and then play with your left stick, moving it in various directions. 5 pitches i threw, 4 were wild pitches and one was nearly a home run that i managed to catch at the wall. I've had better pitch control on RBI Baseball (which, for those who don't know, came out around 1987 for NINTENDO!)

Went into the Drill Modes. Forget it. It's as bad as actually playing the game, only you're forced to do what the drill wants you to do.

I can't wait to turn this game back in. Simply horrible.
