Last year's baseball offering from 2K Sports took lots of heat from critics and the public. Some of it was deserved, some was just piling-on, but most agreed that MLB 2K9 was a work in progress. Within hours of playing its successor, it became obvious that the development team behind MLB 2K10 answered the call and gave us a vastly improved product. It ain't perfect – can a baseball game ever be? – but it's the most enjoyable and fan-friendliest hardball sim Take Two has released this generation.
