Summary: Keeping annualized sports franchises fresh year after year is an unenviable task, especially within the constraint of a ten- or eleven-month development cycle. Generally, sports-game developers endeavor to bring a few important improvements or additions to a series without overhauling the entire product; that’s usually all that can be done in less than a year.
Excerpt: The calendar may tell you the official start of spring is March 20, but in reality, it comes nearly a full month earlier with the first game of Major League Baseball’s Spring Training punctuating the end of winter and the beginning of life anew. Baseball fanatics everywhere rustle out of their collective slumber, rejuvenated with the hope their favorite ball club will win the World Series this season.
Summary: MLB 11: The Show is still the best baseball game on the market by a wide margin. MLB 2K11 makes some strides towards closing the gap, but the new control scheme in MLB 11 is awesome. Batting, pitching, and fielding with the right analog stick can take some time getting used to, but after 30 minutes to an hour you’ll love how much more realistic and fun they are compared to the old control schemes. The graphics are still fantastic and the animation is spot on.
Excerpt: , you will feel right at home with the 2011 iteration. Things like the opening music and splash screen, or the commentary and in-game animations remain largely familiar. And to some, that will translate -- understandably -- to a feeling of staleness.
Summary: SCEA San Diego takes us back to the diamond with MLB 11: The Show, and this entry into the series comes with some pretty significant changes, as well as a lot of what makes The Show the best ongoing baseball gaming franchise on the market. Mostly for better, but sometimes for worse, it is likely the most realistic baseball gaming simulation yet created.
Pros: Still the gold standard in baseball gaming., Analog controls are new and add a fun dimension to the game., Nice atmosphere makes you feel like you're at the park.
Cons: Can be a little too much like actual baseball sometimes., The learning curve between beginner and intermediate play modes is very steep., Online lag can be frustrating in such a timing-oriented game.
Summary: MLB 11: The Show may be a victim of its own success. The best baseball game on the market has gotten so good the past couple of years (if you overlook some of the bugs that afflicted MLB 10 ) that it has built up huge expectations. And the latest edition of Sony's long-running hardball franchise should mostly meet with the approval of the hordes out there who mark the calendar up to Opening Day like they were kids waiting for Christmas.
Pros: New analog pitching interface is both realistic and challenging, Tweaks to Road to the Show add some realism to player progression, Boasts a number of small, subtle improvements that make the game more lifelike, Beautiful, almost photo-realistic visuals
Cons: Few significant changes from last year, Steep learning curve for analog hitting and throwing
