MLB 09: The Show
Not bad, but could be more.
Considering how this is a slightly outdated game for a slightly outdated system, it wouldn't suprise me how the announcer's calls are often repetitive and there are buggy graphics galore, but for a developer as much caliber as SCEA, it seems in that time period (2009 or so), Sony tossed that together for a system barely anybody was using! But I'm glad to see they cleaned it up for the final two installments of The Show for the PS2 (TS:10 & TS:11). To sum it up, the game is good in parts but leaves you unsatisfied, especially for a baseball fan like myself.
why did i get this why!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't waste your money!
I made the mistake of buying this game back after I had sold it months before, and the only reason it gets such a good review from me is becuase of the sweet presentations and graphics. For one, pitching is a nightmare, the placement of the baseball using the analog stick is so sensitive its hard to put it where I want it sometimes. When the AI does get a hit or sends it to the outfield, I have to wait for the throwing meter to charge (happens in the infield too), by the time the players pump their gloves and plant their feet to throw, the opponent is already at the bag/plate, I just want to smash the cd!! And when I swing, sometimes the batter will check his swing when I dont want him too, hitting is hard as he** for a beginner to begin with!! The parks are gorgeous and the presentations almost life-like, but its evident to even to the most casual of gamers that EA is just spitting out the same baseball game year after year with a new title.
Ok but ill turn away on this 1
It has horrible grafics create a carachter i was way to hard so im giving this to mlb (Major League Baseball) 2k9

MAKE YOUR OWN TEAM
AWESOME GAME!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!BUT DUSTIN PEDROIA IS NOT AS GOOD AS I THOUGHT HE WOULD BE.
The Best Baseball Game for PS2
This series just keeps getting better. More animations and options make this the best baseball game for the PS2. It is very easy to update rosters. The cut scenes are done very well and the graphics are probably the best you'll get for this system. The games are very realistic as the players play pretty much as the real thing. In one game with the Giants, Aaron Rowand, he got a base hit exactly the way he did in real life the night before. The simulated games are right on as the Yankees are at the top of the standings and the Indians at the bottom. The Franchise mode is great because you can also play your minor league team's games. The create-a-player is better than most with a lot of options for putting yourself in the game.
Simply the best
Mlb 09 the show is simply the best baseball game on the market until mlb 10 comes out. This is so much better than 2k baseball games which i am not a fan of. For ps2 the graphics are good. I noticed that they made faces different in this one. The stats are good but they hardly show stolen bases, slugging pct, and fielding stats. But that is the only complaint I have. I flat out dominate at this game and the ps3 version has trophies. My fav part is the authenticity of baseball in a vid game. Sony has done an excellent job with their baseball games. I have played the mlb series since mlb 06 and it has definantly come a long long long way. The rosters in the game are good but there are a few players like manny ramierez named as free agents but i can live with it. I would highly recommend this game to anyone baseball fan or not.
I got this game a long time of go I forgot to write a review this is really the best game ever for the show for the ps2 players get dirty when they slide to bases.all people can play and enjoy playing 09 the show for the ps2 cause the gameplay is good this year game. I also feel that the graphics got better this year then other MLB the show games it's well detail.for it to be a ps2 game it has great graphics and game play, it is so similar to real life baseball, the players, batter walk ups, batting stances,they have the players batting stances and it looks good for the ps2.As always the Road to The Show is outstanding and a great game mode to play in. The presentation is good and seeing the new stadiums in the game is pretty cool.To make a baseball player and start a career it's very cool
this game is the best.I've had this game almost since it first came out.the gameplay is so smooth.I've never seen anything like this on ps2.the graphics could be better,but they are awesome for ps2.franchise mode down right awesome.I love being able to control the team from the front office and bein able to make the big decisions that will either make or break your team.the season is cool too,but it is not as fun as franchise mode.now for my review of what I believe is what sells this game.Road To The Show.RTTS is fun and challenging,but it takes so cotton-picking long in order to called to SHOW.what I think is the most stupid thing about not getting called when you deserve it is that you can reach your goals completely for God knows how long and still not get called up.other thing that is crazy about the game is that you can be awesome in spring training and still end up in AA either playing full-time or on the bench.all in all MLB 09 THE SHOW is the BOMB.thanks for reading :)
