Game Focus: Major League Baseball 2K9 Review

Game Focus writes: "The 2009 MLB season is starting in a few days and after getting my hands on Sony's MLB 09 The Show a few weeks back, I was very excited to see what 2K and Visual Concepts were bringing this year to their MLB 2K franchise.

Pros

- Batting and pitching system are more accessible
- Lots of modes available
- Solid online play experience
- Nice play-by-play commentary, environmental sounds
- Solid visuals and animations
- Menus received a nice facelift

Cons

- Frustrating fielding mechanics, throwing meter is a bit sensitive
- Pitching system is good but doesn't bring the sense of realism
- AI fielding is a bit too good
- Stamina and composure meters are almost useless
- Throwing meter is a bit sensitive
- Weird original soundtrack choice
