That being said it will never trump my interest in OOTP as the best, most realistic, endless possibilities and replay value game in my book.

Is that a good thing?

For anyone interested in Action Leagues that's my site for my leagues and tournaments. The more the merrier !

I play Action PC baseball for my leagues and tournaments and think it's the best out there. I would love to see a review on it and the other stat based games. BTW, I love this site ! Best stats anywhere !!!

The player models are still pretty bad thought and most players don't look much like their real life counterparts.

I still think The Show has a sizable lead.

My biggest problem with the default batting cam in 2K11 is in situations where you're facing a same-handed pitcher and the batter's stance crowds the plate (i.e., David Ortiz), because you literally cannot see the ball when it's released. I think "Batting 3" (the low, catcher-angle cam) is what I settled on, zoomed as much as possible. From that angle it's pretty fun to hit, and actually a little reminiscent of MVP 2004 (one of my fave games ever).

#1 - I would love to review those games, but unfortunately, they didn't send me free review copies.

As a PS3 user I went with 2K11 over the Show 11 largely because I'm a little tired of the Show after years of playing it and I prefer the gesture pitching. A big plus for me is my slow reflexes and the slower pitch speed in 2K11.

I actually love the default batting camera in 2K11. 2K11 does offer great camera options in batting and pitching. It's the baserunning camera that has no options. Users should have been able to use the traditional fielding camera instead of first-person type of view.

The Show is definitely more polished than the buggy 2K11 but both games are fun this year.
