Pitching in baseball games has been pretty much the same thing for the last few years. You've got the pitch selection, and you aim where you want the ball to go, and then a meter comes up for you to time your throw (because, you know, that's totally how a pitcher does it, with a rhythm game).
However, MLB 2K11 throws a changeup (baseball joke!). You use the control stick to simulate the windup and pitch an actual baseball player would go through.
Like last year’s MLB 2k10, 2K11 has a date specific achievement involving this game. The achievement is called, “Mid-Summer Classic” and the description simply says, “Play the All-Star game in MLB Today.” Even though the All-Star game is not until tomorrow, 2K Sports is giving us three whole days to get this achievement out of the way. That’s right, you all have from the rest of today (July 11) until July 13th to knock this achievement out of the park.
Calvin Kemph states, "While there's nothing worse about this year's game than MLB 2K10, many of the improvements are trivial, so incremental that they add little meaningful value."
"2K Sports announced today that the next million dollar winner has been confirmed for the Major League Baseball® 2K11 Perfect Game Challenge. The winner, who will be revealed on Thursday, May 26, will take home $1 million and a lifetime’s worth of bragging rights for being the first person to pitch a verified perfect game in Major League Baseball 2K11." -- Wiiloveit.com (Official Press Release)
