The game makes the transition to the next generation with a suite of advanced features in its race to become MVP of 2007's baseball crop. The all-new Road to The Show mode enables gamers to play both offense and defense from the created player's perspective. Many players may cooperate in playing it.

Providing an even more realistic experience from the mound, the new system delivers comprehensive strategy to pitch selection. As a pitcher's “pitch comfort” will be predetermined based on a best to worst pitch scenario, it’s considering the gamer to decide if he should try to “work on a pitch” or not. Additionally, with its features, catchers will call the game based on the individual strengths and weaknesses of each pitcher as well as analyze tendencies of batters. The gamers will now have the ability to select, either to trust the pitches called by the catcher or to shake them off.

Review Summary

MLB 07 The Show is the only other baseball game to be released with an actual MLB license. The graphics play an important role by making the game more enjoyable. Some reviewers find that the ball is much easier to see from when it leaves the pitcher's hand until it gets to the next player. They say that till now most baseball games had stadiums that made it hard to see the ball from where exactly the ball was coming from. In MLB 07, players can easily follow the ball and this makes hitting more fun than guesswork. As for hitting, one thing that is missing is a swing stick. MLB 07 uses control buttons for aiming or swinging. If you get the pitch type right, the box will flash. If the location is right, a target will show up. Reviewers find that the ability to guess the pitch type and location adds an interesting element to batting and forces you to study the way a pitcher pitches. Players can easily be hooked on MLB 07 The Show. Some players have continuously played this game 5 hours in a row. Overall, MLB 07 is one of, if not the best, baseball games ever made. Even though the graphics may not be better than MLB 2K7 series, the game is fun and captivating.
