3.0 out of 5 stars MLB2K12-a slight upgrade from 2K11 March 16, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I have seen a lot of reviews of Xbox sports games that attempt to provide you with every detail of the gameplay and pros and cons. I am not going to do that and instead will give you the shot and sweet review of what I feel is in fact a very fun game to play with great graphics and incredible realism. It is by far the best Xbox baseball game out there and easily rivals The Show on the PS platform.

The thing though is that 2K12 is not a massive upgrade from 2K11. In fact other than updating the players and some other slight improvements it is hard to call this an upgrade more than just an updated version of the game.

What are the real meaningful differences? MLB Season mode is different as it snaps better to the regular upcoming MLB season. From a gameplay perspective, I like the new throwing mechanism where you have to be much more accurate with your throws or you will see them sail over the first baseman's head or easily miss your cut off man. You also will want to check out what they call the new Tendency system. As you get ready to make a pitch, the batter learns your tendencies and vice versa in a much more accurate way than in the previous version so you have to do a lot more adjusting.

Gameplay continues to be fun. You don't have to learn how to bat or pitch differently although you definitely do need to pay attention to the throwing as I mention above to ensure your accuracy. A good game that moves along fairly quickly and that you can easily play for hours and hours with your friends or by yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's good for what it is... March 7, 2012
By J. Hurt
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's an upgrade for 2k11. That much is certain. One complaint is that the graphics aren't up to par with the games rival MLB The show. I did enjoy the new menus in comparison to 2k11's, which I thought were a tad bit confusing to navigate at first. The new batting style is favorable.

Perhaps my biggest peeve about this game is the face that My Player mode wasn't modified enough. It feels the exact same as last year, with a few graphical changes. Sure you can now define your player to fit your favorite role (Strikeout pitcher, ground ball pitcher, etc...), but it just isn't enough. Realistically created players would be submitted minor league offers from random teams and be able to choose the highest paying contract. I haven't gotten much past the first game in my player mode, so I will update when I have finished a season.

Dynasty mode is an exact replica as last season, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I like that you get to start out in Spring Training, so you can get practice and a feel for the new controls before the games start counting.

All in all, so far, this game isn't anything that stand above the rest. It is exactly what you would expect from a 2k Baseball game. Needless to say, I am definitely hoping for an EA Sports title next year.

Edit 3/9/2012

Just a small update. I am thoroughly enjoying franchise mode, just pitched a shut out with Josh Beckett in fact. My game has frozen twice when loading the last 2 games I've played, so that is a bit of a downfall. I've also noticed that at times the commentary is wrong. For example, one of the commentators said the Red Sox one the World series in 2008 when in fact they won in 2007.

Edit 4/3/2012

I am digging through My Player Mode now as a pitcher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, BUT............. March 8, 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, I LOVED 2K11 and was really excited to get 2K12 for the updated rosters and because Justin Verlander is my favorite pitcher and the cover athlete. I cannot say I am disappointed in 2K12, but really, it's pretty much the same as 2K11 just with updated rosters and a few minor changes here and there. This is not a bad thing, I just wish a few more changes would have been made such as more minor league stadiums or classic ball parks would have been nice. My Player mode seems really no different from last year AT ALL, neither does Franchies Mode. MLB Living Season mode is cool but not really for me since you csn only play one game at a time (on the current day of the year).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best 2K release yet. April 16, 2012
By Eric
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The last Major League Baseball game I had was 2k10. It was very solid game for single-player, but for multiplayer too laggy and glitchy. In this latest installment of MLB2K12, the things I thought were flawed in 2k10, they have been fixed. For one: multiplayer is actually fun to play. Rarely do I find myself getting pissed at the lag. The players I play with are somewhat legit too.

Graphics on here are improved since 2K10. Seeing it in HD is just beautiful. The shadows and reflections are nice. The uniforms look amazing. Just wait until you see the Marlins stadium.

The throwing meter throwing base to base is in my opinion awesome. It feels less arcadish. Pitching seems to be improved and more realistic. For example: throwing the same pitch over and over again is not the best idea. Batting feels good, and it's alot harder to get a base hit (which is good).

And finally, the My Player is great. Hasn't really changed compared to 2k10, but still, it's very nice.

I recommend anyone who is wanting a good baseball game to buy this. It's well worth the money.
