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

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.

MLB 08: The Show

  • 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.

  • 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.

MLB 08: The Show Review

GamerNode
18 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Last winter when I named MLB Power Pros one of the Wii Games of the Year, I got a lot of flak about it. Hell, people still feel the need to tell me how wrong I was. I say the same thing now I said then: be a fan of baseball and play the game, and you’ll see why it was the best baseball game available. Until now. Not since the first NFL 2K has a sports game come along and so readily replaced a game that was-until that point-the de facto number 1.

Expert Review

GameSpot
18 March 2008
  • Summary: Sony's MLB series has been top dog for several years running now, and that hasn't changed in 2008. MLB 08: The Show doesn't have much in the way of new content, but it improves upon last year's game in almost every department, and it's the baseball game to get if you're a PlayStation 3 owner looking to play America's Pastime. Its play on the field is where MLB 08 shines the most. Everything--the pitching, hitting, fielding, animations, and atmosphere--is sublime.
  • Pros: Hitting, pitching, and fielding feel great, Tons of different ways to enjoy the game of baseball, Visuals get the little things right, Commentary is top-notch
  • Cons: Road to the Show can become tedious and still has some issues, Not many new, notable features, Load times in Road to the Show are excessive
