Summary: I bought this game for very cheap. I don't really keep up with baseball, so the up to date players don't matter a whole lot to me. The first time I played, I tried to do an exhibition game with my fiancee. It wasn't very intuitive, and we quickly gave up on our game. I went back to play the Road to the Show segment of the game on my own, and it gave me a better idea of how to play. The Road to the Show segment ended up being a lot of fun.
Summary: I am still learning all about the game. It is pretty entertaining. It is a little tough to learn to hit, I'm still using the beginner level and at times find it hard to score runs, it could be the team I'm using isn't the best in real life. I haven't tried to use it with the move controller, but it is fine using the regular controls.
Summary: The only complants was not enough soundtracks and I didn't put it on begginer and somhow hit three home runs in a row and still couldn't win. If you don't have patiance to practice and new to the game series you won't enjoy to the full. I have a toatel fun time and enjoy every aspect. Its beautiful graphics realistic and gives fun game modes but you might need your own soundtrack to enjoy the most. Not many downs.
Summary: All-Star first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is the cover of the 2012 game. Players are able to take the same big league baseball experience on the road with them, anytime, anywhere. the major improvements was the all new skeletal system for the players, along with improved light. Some tweaks to the stadiums, and over 1,000 new animations. The biggest changes are those that were made to the core of the game itself. A new mode was added called Diamond Dynasty.
Summary: This is a great baseball game that has great graphics and gameplay. My favorite part is being able to franchise my team and control every aspect of the game like a real GM/President. the only hang-up is the announcing which becomes very repititive.
Summary: MLB 12: The Show is an absolutely phenomenal gaming experience. This game really improves its quality since last year's edition, and it has a new, black color themed menu for game parts like Road to the Show, making it look much sleeker and eye catching. I would give it a 4 out of 5, but game movements are still a little choppy, like if your tagged out you don't turn to the dugout and walk, you just stop in place for a second, turn, then walk there.
Summary: I have played baseball games all the way back to Atari. I have been a baseball fan since I can remember. Baseball is my passion so I know what I'm talking about in this review. That said, let me tell you that this is the best baseball game I have ever played in any console. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND how someone can write a bad review and say they CAN'T HIT, PITCH, CATCH OR DO ANYTHING... even in beginner mode. That's impossible.
