2K Sports stepped up its game for the franchise's 10th birthday. The new first-person career mode, in which you try to work your way up from the minors to the Hall of Fame, is the best way to experience the revamped hitting and pitching controls. The new controls are heavy on the joystick and a little hard to get used to, but detailed scouting reports will be a dream to sift through for baseball stat heads. The graphics really shine thanks to the Signature Style feature, which mimics baseball's biggest stars down to their batter's box routine. Unfortunately, there are too many glitches during gameplay for a next-generation console title, which detracts from the action.
