One of the best games out there. I played plenty of ball games and this one steals the show. Right from the game play and graphics! . Its like being in a real life baseball game! There are a few areas that need improvement but hey, you cant always get a foul ball. Overall, the game is nasty. A fantastic game. Being a college baller & amatuer baller I know the game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by super marito this is the best mlb the show series yet!!!
This game is great! the graphics are great and it is very realistic.there are fans trying to get foul balls and every player looks exact.theres a lot of new features like rtts and movie maker.now road to the show is more complex and challenging which in my opinoin its better like that.also in this series you can now play as the catch in road to the show.i like playing as Joe Mauer in catcher mode becuase he has great stats and hes the 09 mvp.the game has a brand new home run derby and mlb futures game feature.also the online is very excellent and the online season has a 40 man roster.the game has the in-game mlb ticker which gives info from the real mlb.one of the newest aspect to the game is manager mode. the only problem in the game is that the old time baseball stadiums like baseball city playstaion is making you buy the from the playstation store.i dont want to give out any more stuff about the game.you will have to buy the game to see for yourself.this is the best baseball game yet!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jchapsx True to Major League Baseball
I must say this is the best MLB game I have ever played. The graphics are truly amazing and realistic. The game camera and replays are very similar to that of watching a game on ESPN. I think many other reviews are too quick to give this game a bad rating because of the difficulty. This game really is true to the major leagues where hits do not come at every at-bat. Pitches are difficult to catch corners. It does take some skill to decide whether to swing or not, but eventually in time you will start to expect many off-speed pitches while behind in the count. Their are some flaws in this game, but not too many to not buy this game. The commentary can get repetitive and quite predictable at times. Some fans will dance incredibly N'Sync like they practiced before the game. Some fans on the 1st and 3rd base line will constantly reach for fouls but NEVER get them. One more thing, I can never seem to get a lead off without getting picked off. Nonetheless this game is a great buy. I recommend it 100%.

Well it's sad to say that this game is so bad, i wasted the money buying this game. The game is a joke if you choose to play the cpu in franchise mode. Can't win at all-star level. Realistic game play i don't think so. Cpu get 26 strikes out in a game, cpu pulls starting pitcher when throwing a perfect game, When you control your team out in the field, the cpu gets like a 25 pitch at bat, and the next batter 30 pitches. So your starter has to be changed before the 4th inning. These are just some of the major defects with this game. I have played pro ball for over 12 years and i have never seen pitches go from 12 o'clock position to 7 o'clock then to 4 o'clock, that is just impossible. A fastball can't be thrown at the 12 o'clock position head toward the 6 o'clock position, then back to 12 o'clock. The only thing good about the game is detail itself. besides that, this game is a big disappointment. The 09 version and 08 version give you a chance to win,
Rated 0 out of 10 by handygamer The show series in a league of its own
have been playing basesball games since nintedo baseball, into RBI baseball, tripleplay, ken griffery Jr MVP 2K sports and so on and I have landed a fan of the Show baseball series. I thought MVP 05 was the best baseball game ever and would never be topped. That was until the Show 2008. The hitting system, baserunning and gameplay are all obvious reasons. But I like the subtle things. Like a homerun ball, in 2K i would hit balls 1000 feet straight up and watch em leave the yard. Anyone who has either hit, or watched a homerun go its almost always a hard line drive. The show captures the hard hit balls as they should be. Few things I would change is I would love to see a system when you create your player where you can have more ability to creat a batting stancem using the thumb stick. Also creating a home run celebration, or reaction when you hit it. I would love to hit one and be able to have my character drop his head and sprint or throw the bat as hard as I could toward the dug out. LOL that is all thanks for reading.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GreyKnight Great PS3 Game
I got this game because my friend said they were really fun and he was not lying. I haven't played a baseball game i ages, in fact the last time I did it was on the SNES, so it took awhile to get used to the controls and get good at hitting and pitching, but once you do it's amazing. The gameplay is smooth and controls are great, especially once you get used to everything. The graphics are amazing and look better than most sports games out there. Sounds are realistic, and the cheer of the crowd, crack of the bat, and amplified voice of the announcers are all really authentic. Lasting appeal isn't perfect since the online servers are down, but there is still plenty to do from playing quick matches to competing in a home run derby. You can also still play local multiplayer, so if you and a friend want to put your favorite teams head to head, you can. I love this game already and I think this is the beginning of a long tradition of buying future installments. MLB The Show has definitely replaced Madden as my go to sports game.

This game is an absolutely amazing game. The graphics are fantastic. The graphics are absolutely awesome. Also, the challenge is just as hard as MLB 09 The show. Don't expect this game with hitting to be any easier. People that say they can't get a hit and that's why they don't like the game, that's fine with me. But, in real life, most people get maybe 3 out of ten hits anyways. So, that is realism and you can no longer beat a team 34-0. You'll have good games and terrible games. Road to the Show is once again amazing and now you can be the catcher. I still get a little messed up with the controls every once in a while but that comes with time playing the game. Don't listen to the people that rate this game a 3 or a 1. They probably can't get a hit cause they are too impatient at the plate (let the ball pass you every once in a while, I promise it helps in this game). This is a great game and a great buy. Great game and you won't be disappointed.

Hey any of you that go out and get yourself a copy of this game are in for a real treat. Dont listen to that METS fan ... hes a mets fan need i say more!! The graphics are actually amazing and on my HDTV as well as everybody else's HDTV you feel like your watching a live game. The commentating for the most part is no different .. every single phrase give or take a few is exactly the same but who really cares about that. The gameplay is where this game just takes off .. man when the ball is in play its simply on point. Im not even gonna go into any of the little things, all im gonna say is its hands down the best sports game ever! NHL 10 had that title until tuesday when this came out. If you dont have this game go out and buy it a.s.a.p you will be extremely satisfied! Go Yankees!!! Mets are horrendous and cant get out of their own way, they'll get stomped on all year long again just like they usually do in that horrible NL east.

This game has gone to another level. If you think MLB 09 was the next best thing to 05' with a few minor flaws, let me assure that MLB 10 has improved on the minimal aspects that 09' was lacking. MLB 10 is the newest and greatest. So far I've played like 10 Play Now games and just started my RTTS. This game is incredibly addicting. The graphics are nearly flawless. I have noticed a few errors here and there with a few glitches but I have no doubt these will be taken care of with a minor patch. The realism with this game is almost mind boggling. This may be the last baseball I need to ever buy. What else can they improve? I'm so happy with my purchase. I was debating buying this game or BFBC2 and I don't regret my decision one bit. However, once i save up I'll definitely be getting BFBC2 but I'm not sure I'll want to take the MLB disc out from my PS3. Don't second guess buying this game, you will not be disappointed!! BUY NOW!

Well I'm kind of excited for this game but idk if it will look better then the other one because I want to get it for my dad for his birthday which is on 3/14 but idk if he will like it because he has MLB The Show 07 then he bought 08 and he has played 09 because I rented it for him when we barely got the PS3 so he could try it out and he liked it now he's only playing 08 and sometimes plays the 09 demo and he says that 09 and 08 look kind of the same he says that 09 looks better than 08 but not a lot that's why he hasn't bought 09 so I think this is better because I want to get it for his birthday! Maybe I'll wait for him to play the demo and if he likes it I'll buy it to him. He also didn't liked 2K baseball games because of the graphics. MLB The Show beats 2K baseball games big time! Honestly, I think that MLB 09 The Show has the best graphics of all sports games which my favorite sport is basketball and then soccer.
