I just picked this game up and have played 3 games and no game breaking issues so far. Some of the baserunning animations are comically bad. The play by play is 100% better than last year. The MLB today part is still not working but I can live without that since I only play franchise mode. I haven't tried online play and based on how bad NBA 2K 12's online play was I think I'll steer clear for a while. Overall not a great game but easily a solid 7 out of 10 for me.
Ya its not the show but why does it have to compare We just want a good playable fun baseball type sim for the xbox and this time its better but not great but I am enjoying the new animations commentary and stats and such Heard on line freezes sometimes but it does it with the basketball too sometimes They still haven't figured out a way around game freezes on the net and when it does freeze we still need to shutdown and reboot On the ps2 I remember i fit froze you could eject the disk and then it would go back to the main ps2 screen but not the xbox 360 They still haven't figured a way around this except shutdown and re start Anyway regardless the game its fun and fun to challenge with friends
