MLB 2K7 review

  • Great online options
  • Terrific pitching mechanics
  • Loads of unlockables
  • Visual hiccups galore
  • Delayed sound effects
  • Feast or famine hitting

Spring is here, and with it comes a relative onslaught of baseball games for the venerable PS2. Not one, not two, but three full-fledged titles for Sony’s current generation console make it onto the store shelves. Take-Two’s MLB 2K7 is the last of the three to come up to bat, and while it’s got big-league skills and options aplenty, it brings up the rear of a hyper competitive race for gamers’ dollars this season.

Above: All screens are from the PS3/Xbox 360 version of the game

Despite an impressive list of features and perfectly competent mechanics, it seems as if the folks at 2K Sports were concentrating a bit more on their stellar next-gen versions this time around. During games, there are all sorts of little hiccups and stutters that get in the way of our good time. The screen will freeze momentarily during both cutscenes and - even worse - gameplay, interrupting pitches and fielding attempts. Even the crack of the bat is delayed by a half second during the transition from batting camera to the field view. Bummer.
