Summary: Personally, i love this game because i got it last year and i still play it non stop. The road to the show feature is pretty cool, but i get bored with it cause it takes you a long time to get called up to the majors! The advancment goals aren't the easiest because they're all over the place with obp having to be higher than 500. or something. Other than that, the game is great. My favorite is franchise because you get feedback from your players.
Summary: MLB 08 has the best career mode of any sports game I have ever played. And that is saying a lot since I have been gaming for about thirty plus years. I have never had a career mode in any game keep my interest for two plus years before. At one time I felt that the best career/franchise mode was, believe it or not, Baseball Stars on the old NES. But when this game came out, it blew me away and that takes a lot of blowing to do that any more.
Summary: What can I say... I love this game! Everywhere from the players, to the seasons, to the teams, to the online, and so on.. I made a few customizable characters, and its a blast!! The Controls are awsome however, they get confusing. I found myself looking back to the manual quite offen. There are alot of controls so its hard to remember them. The graphics are awsome and some of the best I've played on PS2. I think that the worst part about the game are the announcers.
Summary: I mostly think that this is the best MLB baseball game in the WORLD! Great graphics, great sounding, it has almost everything a baseball game needs! The greatest players of today are back for a fight for the World Series Championship! Are you new to the game? Not a problem! During certain games and game modes tips will pop up to help yo hoist in your season! Do you think last year's career mode wasn't enough?
Summary: I got this 2 days ago for an early b-day present and i love it. In this one Road to the show is back and better than ever, not only do you have to achieve the goals that are given to you the rate you on how well you do by giving you points 20 being the best and -20 being the worst. I love this game and if your looking for a baseball game that lets you do a career on it I would buy it trust me you'll be happy that you did, so go out and buy it you wont regret that you did...
Summary: i really like this game and got for a b day present. Anyway, first off:the grapichs, they are outstanding the croud is ok but no one needs the croud something bad is if you hit it foul it bounces out of stands. Controls: i always like the power swing but the down side is it swings sloooooow and for stealing, it's confusing to do double steal you have to press L2 but with runners on corners it's very confusing to make 1 runner steal.
Summary: I think this game is great the graphics are tremendous for the ps3. The players are axactly the same in real life and the pitching is great.you can choose from a variety of pitches that the player has. the batting is difficult but it is good. I think the fans are cool bacuase they are real compared to the other years. the umpires call borderline calls that are realistic. the fielding is very realistic and the players are just as good in the game as real life.
Summary: I really wanted this game. I saved up my money, traded in some games and found enough money to get MLB:08 The Show. It was really worth it. I was very excited, I couldn't wait to play Road to the Show. I wasn't disappointed. This game is great. I was happy to see when playing that almost every player has their unique stance, no matter if they were a superstar or a bench player.
