MLB 2K11 Gameplay Video

Posted February 22nd, 2011 at 10:30 am

With just two weeks until release 2K Sports has finally provided an opportunity to see MLB 2K11 in action. Last week brought the first glimpse of the game made up of off-camera footage. This however offers the first high quality captured footage of the game and runs for approximately 10 minutes with the Phillies @ Rockies in in the NLCS. Still no word on a demo but the assumption is that it will arrive next Tuesday otherwise they’ll have missed the prerelease window.

The timing of the video’s arrival is surely meant to deflect some attention from MLB 11: The Show on its demo release day. While I like many of the presentational elements (outside of the slow-motion home run), commentary, and the overall flow…the camera angles are tough to get a grasp on, the atmosphere is not what one would expect out of an NLCS game, and it is hard to ignore how graphically the game is exceptionally ugly in spots (Charlie Manual is frightening).
