Excerpt: Despite my unabashed love of all things San Francisco Giants, a large majority of my family and friends are made up of baseball detractors. The obligatory “boring” label is brought up often while discussing their disdain for the sport.
Pros: Includes all game modes and mechanics from the PS3 version, Cross-platform functionality, Great visuals
Cons: Online play marred by technical inconsistencies, Long load times
Summary: MLB 12: The Show builds on what has been delivered in previous franchise releases, adding compelling features that bring unparalleled innovation polish to the sports genre, delivering true-to-life gameplay, authentic franchise/season modes, and incredible detail.

Pros: Nearly every mode from the console game is included, Solid commentary and sounds from the crowd, Interesting pitching and hitting mechanics
Cons: Some graphical issues, Touch controls are not fully utilized, Choppy online
Conclusion: Despite hearing some negative things about 'Corpse Bride' before this review -- namely, that it does not equal Tim Burton's 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' -- I was pleasantly surprised that I felt no such disappointment.
