Summary: MLB the Show games are great. But when I finally got my PS3, I needed one for cheap. I bought 08 to have The Show experience, but the online was already off. Why do they remove it as soon as the new one is out? I have EA sports games from 2006 that you can still play online. And I am writing this in 2011, about 2 years after I got it. So 2 years ago, it was offline already. It makes no sense. I got 10 when it came out- great game!
Summary: I am into more realistic action when it comes to baseball games,for example the best game to date is 2k8,great realism.very good.That is a game that will be hard to beat,dont get me wrong it needs some tunning up,but they are going in the right direction.The game makes you feel like you are playing in it.That is how a veteran game should be made.The over all grade on mlb 08 the show is a good game but the same thing is going on as of last year.The basic game is there,but...
Nice graphics, feels like you're there, but buggy/fishy game-play.

Summary: I won't rehash what others have said, but here's the short of it: Pros - The game is fun to play. - Its VERY true-to-life, down to batting stances, fielding tendencies, and reaction reels. - The graphics are excellent, but its a little sad that its only 720p native, and not full HD. - The gaming options are ample enough to keep the player interested for years, with many different modes and play-schemes. Cons - The game play is still very buggy.
Summary: First, the graphics are amazing. Good job on getting it to look so realistic. The options(custumize players) are even better. The few things that I have disagree with are the online play and the hitting. The online play is a joke. I have tried 3 games online and they all went into extra innings with the score 0-0. Which basicaly brings me to my next issue. It can not be this hard to hit the ball.
Summary: This is the best baseball game available this year, but the series still has a way to go. Base running is still too difficult and the manual is frustratingly light on instructions. In fact, they just assume you know how the 3-point pitching meter works, but if you're new to the series, you may find yourself doing online research to learn how it works. Why is it that 8-bit baseball games are still more fun to play than today's games?
