Excerpt: The month of March is by far my favorite time of the entire year. Why? Because March signifies the return of baseball. I have been playing the game ever since I was old enough to walk; I still pick up a pack of baseball cards whenever I get the opportunity; I viewed my trip to Fenway Park as a religious experience; And I am one of those twisted individuals who will watch all 162 games of my beloved Detroit Tigers (and even game 163 last season, which I do not want to...

MLB 10: The Show
8 March 2010
Conclusion: So how do I know this is the most realistic game of baseball on a next gen console? The Reds completely suck! That's right, this Reds' fan expects sloppy pitching, horrible hitting and MLB 10: The Show doesn't disappoint. In all seriousness, MLB 10: The Show takes baseball fans somewhere they were dying to go and does it in such style.
Summary: MLB 10: The Show delivers the most complete and realistic baseball experience of this generation. Sure, it throws a few balls ever now and then, but it delivers so many strikes that you'll want to keep it in your games rotation well into the postseason and beyond.
Pros: Deep, rewarding and challenging, Stunningly detailed and animated, Road to the Show is grander than ever
Cons: Clipping issues return, Commentators are bland jerks, Quirky AI issues

Right off the bat (Give me a break; I’m overwhelmed by baseball right now), anyone can see that The Show is all about the presentation.
Excerpt: Remember the Flash game, Defend Your Castle? In it, stickmen would attack your castle, and you would use the mouse to fling them away, causing hilariously entertaining stickman devastation. Not surprisingly, the concept became a popular game on the iPhone, called Stick Wars. It was the number one gaming app for quite a while, and the de facto King of Castle Defense. Until now.
