CPU outfielders would run in circles around balls hit to the wall, once giving me a triple with Yadier Molina! Sac flies were near impossible. I once hit a ball to deep center field, and as soon as it was caught, sent the runner from third. He was NAILED at the plate...not even close. I viewed the replay to see what went wrong, and my runner was jogging the whole way, as if it was a home run.
Another issue not related to game play, but still makes the game look bad, were the stat displays. I was using the Cardinals, and before each player's first at-bat, a stat would display. Among the ones seen were Albert Pujols - "NL MVP in 216" and Khalil Greene "15th in the NL in Home Runs in 2008".
Historical events of the year 216 AD:
Cao Cao became King of Wei.
The Baths of Caracalla in Rome are completed.
The basilica of Leptis Magna, ordered by Septimus Severus, was completed.
Albert Pujols wins NL MVP
Also, this proves my suspicion that A-Poo is older than his listed age.
Anyway, I haven't played since 2k7 but it's hard to believe a franchise that's running on 3-4 years not only doesn't seem to be improving but actually seems to be getting worse
. Oh well, at least this way they never have to worry about hitting a plateau and running out of ideas for next year's game.
