MLB 2K10 is passable, but still lagging behind EA Sports MVP series from five years ago.
A clumsy dashboard and tedious hitting and pitching controls take away from the game’s superior graphics and realistic game-feel.
It’s basically the equivalent of a shortstop who’s capable of making the highlight-reel throw, but struggles to field the most routine ground ball.
2K Sports is simply trying too hard. And while I appreciate the effort, it’s not the glamorous additions that I’m looking for.
Just give us a game with simple navigation, great graphics and smooth online compatibility. Forget the bells and whistles around pitching and hitting controls and deliver, once and for all, a baseball sim free of bugs and hang-ups.
Until then, which it’s already been five years in the waiting, 2K’s MLB series remains in Triple-A code. A Cubs cry of ‘Wait til next year’ singing its final praises.
