Summary: Building upon its reputation for immersion and unparalleled delivery of the baseball experience, as well as the addition of several new key features and enhancements, MLB 10 The Show is poised to continue the franchise's reign as the premier MLB licensed game on any platform.
Excerpt: Looking as outstanding as ever, Sony's MLB 10 The Show is a beautiful piece of eye candy when it comes to player models. Not only do they visually look great -- with outstanding textures and lighting -- but the animations are hands-down impressive and knock the competition out of the water. The smooth transitions between motion captured animations drive realism home in this title.
Summary: The one sport EA Games is not challenging 2k Games in is America’s favorite pastime, Major League Baseball. For the past five years, SCE San Diego has been pumping out some of the most entertaining baseball simulators on the planet, and 2010’s edition is no different, offering grand additions to an already shining series.
Excerpt: , I was not as happy. There was something I didn’t like about the mechanics of the game. I moved on to the 2K Sports series and found myself sitting for hours on end playing in franchise mode, from the minor league games all the way up. It became an addiction, finding minor league players I liked and making sure I played them enough to move them into my starting lineups.
Excerpt: While our culture moves at increasing speed, baseball remains a game for the patient. In videogames, the sport has fallen by the wayside. When gaming is so often obsessed with more, better, faster , the idea of digging in for a duel fought one pitch at a time can seem archaic. How surprising, then, that MLB 10: The Show isn’t just one of the best sports games available, but with respect to the ratio between ambition and execution, it’s one of the best videogames, period.
Conclusion: On the field, The Show is top-notch. I absolutely love the mechanics and the battles between pitcher and batter. Little was changed, but really, little needed to be changed. Visually, this is a real stunner. Great animations, nice stadiums, the player's look and feel right. And this is as full a feature set as anyone could ask of a baseball game from the deep and engrossing Road to the Show to a ridiculously in-depth Franchise mode to Online Season Leagues.
