Sure, there are quirks and hiccups - for example, handling your outfielders is more adventurous than it should be, players can meld into each other on occasion, sometimes it's tough to see the ball when fielding - but randomness coupled with the human condition makes baseball the toughest of all sports to represent well in a video game. MLB 2K7 is a stellar title that'll keep baseball fans happy all season long.
Major League Baseball 2K7 is a very polished game that really needs to be experienced by every baseball fan out there. The presentation is beautiful and the gameplay is solid. The only quirk again is in how difficult it is from the get go, but once you get a hang of the game, you’ll feel rewarded as you find yourself playing better and better each time. Though not a perfect entry by any means, it’s definitely a much better outing than last year and a solid entry into the franchise.
MLB 2K7 is certainly a better game, but most of the new content is of the visual variety. I can’t stress enough how impressive this aspect of the game is. It captures the look, sound, and feel of the game better than anything that you’ve seen before.
Major League Baseball 2K7 has plenty of different modes to explore, from your franchise, season mode, and GM options to a variety of different home run derbies. The old standbys are here as well, like unlockable games of darts, shuffleboard, and a simplistic baseball trivia game. The best reason to pick up this game isn't in the extra content that it delivers over 2K6, which was itself a feature-rich game, but instead in that your money will be well spent on what is a much better looking and playing version of baseball than what was presented last year. We still don't know what the best baseball game will be this year, but it's a safe bet to say that you'll have a good time playing this one, particularly with friends.
With so many options to choose from baseball fans will no doubt find something to love here. While there are a few quirks left over from last year the game is a huge improvement over its predecessor. The visuals, outside of a few frame issues, are absolutely stunning and really add to the overall appeal of the game. If you are in the market for a new baseball game this year you will be hard pressed to find a more robust package. Fantastic online options round out the complete package making this the must own baseball game for the next-generation.
MLB2K7 is cram-packed full of baseball fun for all kinds of gaming fans. You can even change the controls and gameplay to classic "Videogame" style for those who don't appreciate analog stick controls. I recommend this game for anyone who likes baseball. It's one of the best PS2 baseball games and it's a lot less money than any other version of the game, minus handhelds. Some stores have already reduced it to $19.99, so there's no excuse not to buy it right away!

In the end, this game's stunning details should keep you engaged all summer long, and the potential tendon injury from hitting is enticing. The Sixaxis swinging is a good acquisition, but the absence of rumble and the general lack of defensive and pitching innovation keep this from making the All-Star team.

While its debut on the PS3 isn't a bad one, this isn't what you'd expect when the title is supposed to erase the bad taste from the previous year's game. MLB 2K6 was hamstrung by fielding and baserunning issues that hampered play. This year, some of those problems were addressed in MLB 2K7, but others have cropped up to replace them: Odd fielding choices, hesitation steps around bases and tons of slowdown that randomly assaults the game. That's also excluding the un-updated rosters, repetitive dialogue and other issues that crop up. Finally, the SIXAXIS control scheme, while creative, just doesn't get the job done as much as you'd hope it would. 2K7 is still fun, but a number of its issues hamper the enjoyment of this title.
MLB 2K7 is a good game that shows a lot of improvement over its predecessor. The presentation is excellent and really stands out when compared to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game. The gameplay is enjoyable, though there's still plenty of room for improvement. Even the 33 achievements in the Xbox 360 version are better than the five from last year, rewarding you for hitting and pitching prowess, online success, and for reaching secret objectives such as hitting for the cycle. If you're trying to decide between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game, the PS3's tilt-control swing mechanic isn't enough to make up for a frame rate that often makes the game difficult to play. The 360 version is the way to go thanks to a better--but not great--frame rate.
The game does a good job of cleaning up the mistakes from last year’s version and provides an overall much cleaner baseball game. Unfortunately, the buggy SIXAXIS support and some technical flaws open up a whole new can of worms.
Visually it's disappointing, as the field detail and the framerate are the worst offenders. Lastly, the commentary is just barely acceptable, but may get repetitive sooner than you think. Go out and give MLB 2K7 a rental and see if you like what you're playing. If not, then wait for Sony to release MLB 07: The Show in April, or pick up the PS2 version now.

The old standbys are here as well, like unlockable games of darts, shuffleboard, and a simplistic baseball trivia game. The best reason to pick up this game isn't in the extra content that it delivers over 2K6, which was itself a feature-rich game, but instead in that your money will be well-spent on what is a much better-looking and better-playing version of baseball than we had last year. While it's up to you to determine what your favorite baseball game will be this year, it's a safe bet to say that you'll have a good time playing this one. If you own a PS3 and an Xbox 360, then go ahead and opt for the 360 version. It has better online support, sharper visuals and richer colors. But if you only own a PlayStation 3, rest assured that you'll enjoy this version anyways.
For no apparent reason, this game was shipped a month early. A month of polishing would have ironed out some ghastly bugs. Some are funny. Some kill the fun of the game. When you do get a bug-free game, however, the hitting and pitching are fun. Fielding and baserunning are not without their problems, but you still get a good game of baseball from 2K7. Still, the look and sound of this game are pretty much identical to MLB 2K6 and it's clear that not much effort went into the current-gen versions of 2K7. The good news is that the online options and solid franchise mode will keep you coming back for more, if you can stand more of JD Drew, rated at 100. Seriously, the guy can barely finish an inning without ending up on the injury report. Is this really happening?
MLB 2K7 is a solid baseball game, but the effort the developer put into improving the game is minimal at best. Xbox owners might want to pick the game up simply because there's no other choice, but PlayStation 2 owners should look to the far superior MLB 07: The Show for their baseball fix this year.
All in all, Major League Baseball 2K7 is a pretty good baseball game with a few noticeable flaws. It hasn't quite caught up to its 2K Sports brothers, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. Lovers of America's favorite pastime may enjoy picking up this title, but for others, it may be a hit or miss situation.
More is not necessarily better however, and MLB 2K7 crumbles under its own weight. Even if you turn off the time-consuming bells and whistles, it's hard to sit through more than three innings of this. Unlike last year, it is possible to play more than two innings of Major League Baseball 2K7, but whether you'll want to or not is another matter altogether.
