on the shelves

MLB 2K8 (The W at Amazon) (gamestats)
MLB ’08: the Show (gamestats)

IGN says Sony’s ’08 is an improvement, not just a patch + roster update. The AI fielding issues aren’t all gone, but they’re a lot better. Visuals have improved, and the Road to the Show career mode is highly recommended. Gametap goes crazy for the quantity and quality of animations.

2K has changed it’s pitching and hitting mechanics, making them too hard according to 1UP. 2K has lesser video on the PS3 version, again. Regardless of the platform, there’s lots of visual issues. The franchise mode is deeper here, including 90 minor league teams and 20 minor league stadiums, though IGN says it’s showing it’s age. The commentary is inferior to the other game.

Army of Two (gamestats) – a two person military shooter, which you probably could tell from the name. Pushed back from a Holiday release, this game has marked improvements from the what it was looking about then. The idea is supposed to be that you can play single player, and the AI playing the other guy will react just like a real person reacting off of you, but the game still doesn’t quite reach that level and you’re mostly directing them around. It sounds pretty fun when you’ve got two actual live bodies.
