Summary: Now dont get me wrong I love this game just needs a few things touched up on. for one it would be great if they had the home run derby back in the game. I also think they should add this to the mlb 08 the road to the show calander its one of my favorite. This could also make it cooler but they should make it a little more difficult to win it. and make the home run derby look realistic instead of the guys on the bench look at it and stuff.
Summary: All I can say is wow. I have been buying baseball games since the original nintendo baseball on the NES. Since then I have probably owned over twenty-five different baseball games, some good and some bad, but I can say, pretty confidently, this is the best one that I have ever played. First and formost the graphics are far and away the best of any baseball game I have played.
Summary: I love this game. My favorite part is the Road to the Show feature. It's somewhat realistic but it's fun to build yourself up. Another fun part in the Road to the Show feature is the advancement periods. It's weird though you could get all of the goals in 7 advancement periods in a row and you still wouldn't go to the next level of play as in AA or AAA. The only thing I don't like is when you simulate in Franchise mode.
Summary: This game is one the best Ps3 games yet, if you're a baseball fan this game is a must have. The graphics in the game are amazing, you can actually see the wrinkles on the players shirts and shorts. Also the franchise mode is very in depth and the fantasy draft is awesome with 75 rounds. One of the other great things about this game is, say you're a brewers fan, the game starts without C.C.
Summary: I think mlb08 the show is great. I know I've only had it like 3 days but the first time I played I did fantasy draft. The first time I pitched I had no control over anything I was walking people and hitting. I swung at like everything else it was 3 and 0. Then the 3rd game I was getting use 2 it I struck out 7 people and only got struck out 4 and also it is cool because if you hit a homerun then the next time you come up it shows the home run highlight.
This by far is the best baseball game in a long time... maybe ever!

Summary: I notice people saying this game is way too hard... 2K8 was 20X more difficult than this game. And by difficult I don't mean challenging. The Show is a far better challenge. 2K8 is just not as unrealistic as this game is. Strategy is involved in every aspect of this game! The Guess the Pitch is the best batting interface in any baseball game maybe ever and it makes you think for a minute before you start free swinging.
Summary: After reading all these great reviews, I knew it wouldn't disappoint. The broadcasting in this title is amazing and keeps you into the game unlike the 2k8 version which really bit. The visuals are superb, the players have tons and tons of realistic animations and they flow without any flaw whatsoever. As for the interface, menus are easy to use and simple to navigate; you won't be getting lost in areas.
Summary: This game is great any baseball lover that has a ps3 needs to get this game if not your missing out on a lot! the graphics are mind blowing. I have played almost every baseball game out there and this is the best one out so far. I bought the 2k8 and the game is just horrible, the controls are confusing and compared to this game its like it should not have even be made.
Summary: I have been playing this game nonstop since it came out, even though I have a ton of other titles to play. I play RTTS mostly, and I strongly disagree where one reviewer stated it was hard to hit. My current average is above 500 and I am halfway through the season. Yeah it was hard to hit at first, but once you get used to it and fill out your training bars, watch out!
Summary: I feel sorry for baseball fans who don't have this game and for baseball fans who have MLB 2K8. Because if you fall into either of those categories, you're missing the best baseball experience you could ask for. I just became a big baseball fan (go Braves, Cubs, and Red Sox), and I'm addicted to this game. It's got amazing graphics, addictive gameplay (especially the pitcher-batter battle), awesome sound, and is a ton of fun overall.
