The hitting was what really bothered me. I don't care much for the stick hitting.
No problem. I don't care for analog hitting either.
I think if you try it with classic hitting where you only press "A" you'll see quite a bit of hit variety and HR's.

Have fun with the other game. It's very well done. But maybe if you get bored, or feel like trying something different, give 2K another shot.
The flaws have been well documented, but there's some fun gameplay under the hood.

Good luck and go Tigers!

The game is not all bad. And I agree with others, why would we want 2K out of the genre. Competition is a good thing. The more making games, the better.

This game has it's problems as most games now days. Overall, I like playing it for a change of pace. The announcing is top notch. Some of the players are awful looking but I'm willing to look past that when I'm playing. I just switched to classic hitting this year with MKHarshs' sliders and rosters and the game plays good. I just wish you could take his rosters into the MLB Today mode.

Considering the year or two when 2K's homerun collision detection was non-existent, when was the last year 2K actually had a Derby setup worth playing?
I'd say MLB 2K7 on the 360. I liked it anyway. I agree with you about what you said too. They haven't done anything to that ridiculous version of HRD since they took over making the game.

There's a big old area in the options screen called 'CONTROLLER OPTIONS.'

Assuming you even played the game, and that you're not just a fanboy coming on a forum and complaining about a game you've never played, you should have found it in 2 minutes. Smh.

2k12 is solid as usual. At this point in time there is no need to compare this title to the other game. and who ever said that the control schemes are difficult on 2k, Id like to add that they are basically the same in the other title (analog controls). and the more basic contola are available also
The qualit of graphics is better than average on the PC. The ball physics and the new pitching feature is a great plus. its actually as good as pulse pitching. the new fielding spot is also well executed.

I like 2k12 as well as the other the title

Yeah I gotta disagree here, im fairly new to baseball games (I was a huge EAsports fan, NCAA baseball 06-07 and going way back to tripleplay) so last year I had that baseball itch come back so I gave MLB2k11 a shot and was fairly disappointed but being a huge NBA2k fan I gave this year another shot and I hafta say i was impressed and its pretty hard to put the controller down and walk away from this game. Most the time that's a sign of a good game.

2k12 on the PC is a blast to play and a pretty solid baseball title. Yeah it has bugs and plays awkwardly from time to time, but overall this is one of the most fun baseball games I've ever played and too me that's most important and the sole reason I buy videogames is for the fun factor.

I really am enjoying 2k12. The pitching is stellar as last couple years. Batting not too shabby. Having to set your feet for fielding is pure genius move. Truly adds another level of play to the game. And YES the hitting distribution is much much much better this time out.

Only thing that hurts this game is the online. Most people just abuse the game and exploit everything they can. Plus it is sooo lame to play against either, Yankees, Rangers, Phillies, nearly every game. I only use the Pirates (being a real fan that supports a team that never does much).

Its not the games fault online is horrible -- its the scrubs that play as they do to ruin it for everyone else. But they can really put some work into online if 2k13 happens.
