I only have a Xbox 360 so this is the only real baseball game available for me, but this is the best version of the 2k baseball games that I have ever played. I love the pitching mechanic and batting is fun in this game as well. The fielding is a bit questionable and your pitchers get rattled too easy which are my main complaints. I had my starters getting rattled after a couple hits in the first inning and it is a pain in the ass having to send your manager out every time. Home runs are really hard to come by as well which is better because the previous years had you hitting homers every other at bat. I have only been playing the franchise mode, but the my player seems like it has a lot of promise.
