MLB 08: The Show PSP Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Once again MLB 08: The Show delivers as expected. There is no competition anywhere for this franchise and even though 2K Sports is trying hard with their MLB 2K series, they’re still coming up short. It’ll be another couple of years before they can really compete.
  • Pros: Road to the Show improvements, Solid online play, Great pitcher/hitter analysis
  • Cons: Visual tearing is rough, Camera angles are too tight, Lack of throwing meter

MLB 08: The Show (PS3) Review

411mania.com
20 July 2008
  • Summary: He’s too fast dammit! I had more fun with MLB 08: The Show for the PS3 than I ever thought I would have. MLB 08 has gone through significant improvements, and besides some graphical issues there isn’t a whole lot to complain about. At this point most people know whether or not they like baseball games, so you’ve probably already decided whether or not you’re going to purchase it.

Simple yet satisfying baseball simulation.

Common Sense Media
14 July 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is a simple simulation of Major League Baseball. The game is playable online , so kids playing online could hear language that might not be appropriate. Common Sense Media recommends that children under the age of 12 not play online without supervision.

MLB 08 The Show

Playstation Illustrated
14 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Sony's MLB series has consistently been one of the better baseball games on the market. While MLB 08: The Show is yet another showing for the series, there are still a number of smaller, nagging issues that keep it from hitting a grand slam. It is easy to look at the big picture and see that MLB 08: The Show is one of the most visually impressive baseball games on the market, but you really have to look closely to see why.

MLB 08: The Show

Gaming Evolution
21 April 2008
  • Conclusion: Is MLB08: The Show the best baseball game experience, deserving of a perfect score, which would be a no. Is it a solid gaming experience that's enjoyable by all whom like baseball and far superior to its competition... that would be a yes? SCEA San Diego took extra time to address several issues from last year's installment making the overall experience more enjoyable, but the game still suffered from a few flaws within the gameplay mechanics and visuals.

MLB 08 The Show

Digital Chumps
14 April 2008
  • Conclusion: I'm stilling playing through a partial season of MLB 08 The Show, and it's been fun overall. Part of my difficulty with this game is just in not being very familiar with the sport or other baseball titles, but The Show has given me the best opportunity I could ask for to get into the sport, and the baseball game genre.

3 April 2008
  • Excerpt: It used to be, at the end of the PlayStation generation and beginning of the PS2, that everything from Sony's 989 Sports was a train wreck, or more accurately for this metaphor, a strikeout. That started to change with their World Tour Soccer and MLB franchises between 2004 and 2005. Now in 2008, MLB 08: The Show is going up against one fewer competitor than it did just a few years ago (and my personal favorite baseball game), MVP Baseball, thanks to 2K Sports' exclusive...

  • Excerpt: Making great leaps forward from last year's Sony-made baseball game -- which had great potential but came off the bat as an double rather then a homerun --, MLB 08 for the PlayStation3 still doesn't not knock it out of the park, but it's a solid stand-up triple.
