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

Playstation Illustrated
20 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.

  • Excerpt: I don't think I'm alone when I say that barring a few examples, sports titles for the latest crop of consoles haven't exactly blown our socks off. It always seems as if there's some glaring problem that holds a game back. We've rarely experienced a complete title that makes us appreciate the new technology we've invested so much into.
  • Pros: Awesome graphics and animations., Near flawless gameplay., Road to the Show is fantastic.
  • Cons: Minor Graphical Bugs, Occasional in-game or stat glitches., Online Lag.

  • Excerpt: Name: MLB 08: The Show Genre: Baseball Simulator Platform: Playstation 3 Last year’s installment of Sony’s MLB simulator franchise, The Show , was a competent, if not spectacular offering that gave stat-hounds and fence-swingers alike something to hope for from the future.  This year, Sony took everything that worked from 07, polished it to a high sheen, and added enough new to make this the best baseball option for the PS3.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
7 March 2008
  • Excerpt: I found last year's MLB 07: The Show to be a solid game of baseball, especially for one that was a first generation title. Sony did a good job of bringing over the core aspects of the series from the PlayStation 2, and onto the PlayStation 3. Where as Sony's first-generation NBA title was really barebones, the same plague didn't fall upon MLB 07. And that may have been due to heated competition from 2K's MLB 2K7, which we later found out wasn't very hot, at all.
