Summary: MLB 08 the show is really a remarkable game. It has the quality and presentation of a high end PS2 game while being portable. For anyone who has played almost any DS sports game, you know just how dreadful portable sports gaming can be. It has a solid season mode which goes up to 162 games and allows full control, right down to mound visits and bullpen warmups.
Summary: I enjoyed this game a lot. I already have it for the ps2, but i wanted to take it on the road with me. The graphics are great for such a small disc. The only downside is the fact that there is no fantasy draft or franchise mode. Other than that this is an amazing game!
Summary: This is a great baseball game for the PSP! The graphics are crisp and the controls are easy to use. Also it has the "road to the show" mode where you can create a player and guide him from the minors all the way to the bigs. The level of depth in this is really awesome and it's truly addictive. I am so glad I made this purchase, you will not be disappointed!!
Summary: This is my first baseball game I purchased since MVP Baseball 2004 for my GameCube four long years ago. I'm glad I bought this one. The graphics for the game are well done. And while it's clear the engine does need to be upgraded graphichally I can still compare the player potraits to the 3D models. The batting and pitching remind very much of MVP.
Similar to years past, and that's a good thing!!!!

Summary: I've been playing this game for a few hours now and I have to say, it is very, very good. I have played 'The Show' for the last two years on PsP and this could be the best of all three I know last year, the frame rate dropped a bit on '07 from the 2006 game. This has been fixed this year. The graphics are very similar to what they have been the last few years. But hey, they are good in my book! No need to improve when the gameplay shines like it does!!
Summary: What's great about this game? I can actually play it on the go. A lot of psp games, really aren't pick up and play games. The Show is, which is awesome. It only takes a few minutes to get into a game, and if I don't finish, no worries. The power save feature is fantastic. I don't have to turn on the game, and remember what I was doing. This game offers plenty of modes, although I'm disappointed there isn't a franchise mode.
