MLB 07: The Show
A Great Game
I have been playing Baseball video games since Atari was the only video game system available. Sega's Genesis system set the bar for sports games including the then unheard of speech synthesis. High Heat for the PS2 set the bar even higher. MVP Baseball was the next great baseball game. The last few years has seen MLB The Show putting out the best baseball available. This year's has improved last year's version. The pitching interface is the best. Adding an AI catcher who can call the game is another great feature added. The graphics won't blow you away but they are pretty life-like. What steps this game apart from the others I have played are the game sounds. The announcers call a good game without too much repetition and the crowd responds correctly to what is on the field. Also, the create-a-player is pretty cool as I created a pretty decent Pablo Sandoval. Batting is very simple as you only have to make contact and the guess-pitch option can be turned off. Play is pretty fast and you can complete a game in less than an hour although I did play an extra-inning game that lasted over 2 hours. But I enjoyed every minute of it.
Must for ps2 Owners!
To start off, Mlb 07 the show for the ps2 is a great game. If you like sports and you own a ps2 I strongly recommend it! This game is packed with new features and modes. Starting off, there is a new road to the show mode where you can only do what your position can do. You can 1 up your players abilities in different parts. The home run derby is more fun than ever. Next the graphics in this game is next gen. The difficulty modes can adjust your gameplay just right. If you your the greatest player in the world try the hardest mode, it will make you scream and throw the controller at the tv. ( this review is not held for any damage to objects,things people, or other things.) So to finish this off, this is a great game and I recommend it for any ps2 owner. - Smokey
This game can be fun at sometimes like in season or career. But sometimes the game is very stressful. I sometime throw the controler at ground it's so stressful.Overall it's a kool game!!!!!
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST BASEBALL GAME EVER
If you are reading this review, get off your butt, grab 4 bucks, and run, don't walk, to your nearest GameStop. If they don't have this game, ask who does. If the only copy left in the world is on the other side of the country, get in your car and drive there immediately if not sooner. Just get your hands on this game!!!!!!!
Good graphics but nothing else
This game is good but, MVP was way better. You can't argue calls with the ump at all, sometimes the computer will argue for you and the player ALWAYS ends up getting tossed which sucks and you have no control over it. MVP had the "intensity meter" which this doesn't have. You really don't have FULL control of the fielders either - if you catch a fly ball with no one on base and wanna throw to a base or to the cutoff man "just for fun" it doesn't let you (MVP did), it goes into an auto mode. It is WAY too easy to get picked off by the computer, even when he starts to come to the set he can still throw over (which is a balk) while you're trying to inch out your lead and he gets you. Even if the pitcher has a terrible pickoff rating. Don't waste your money.
It is a great game but i have one problem.
The graphics are great for ps2.The gameplay is great.I recomend this game for kid gamers or the baseball fanatic you know.My only problem is when me and my brother try to play a game together.The swing analyser pops up and does not allow me to pitch so i must walk the batter or fast foward to get past that point. if i pick my pitch and it happens i have to restart it if anyone knows how to stop this from happening please let me know.
For Ps2 Excellent
When I first bought 07, it was kindof hard, however it grows on you. I would recommend this game to anyone like me who loves baseball. Its a shame that they stopped making them for Ps2 after 2011. The key to winning any of these Mlb games is to put yourself and people you know on your team, and ajust the attributes, you will have a great season.
to keep it simple this game is awsome and by far beats all 2k sports games
