Sadly, but unsurprisingly, no. MLB 2K12 is the same as 2K11 and beyond... The presentation remains the same. Care for a small list? The pop-up stats when players are on the mound or in the batter's box are still in the same bland design, the graphics remain pretty much below average, the crowd looks dreadful -- and they don't make much noise or move at all after a home run... the list goes on. It's not to say that this demo is terrible, but it's not giving me any reason to believe that MLB 2K12 will be the first GREAT game in the series. Maybe next year, baseball fans.
