Can't wait for baseball season and this game.Currently playing my 2nd season on mlb11 but want this game.Andrew mccutchin is on the cover this year and I hear a lot of improvements have been made.Hopefuly the broadcast is better and some of the graphics.One complaint I had on 11 was no collision and players would pass thru each other.especialy on collisions and tags,Irratating when you see a tag and the fieldrs glove goes thru the runner.I would also love to see real minor league stadiums and have legendary players in the free agent pool and legendary teams.

From what I have read about the new Show, it is the same exact game as last year. The only change I can come across is that they have updated the rosters, obviously, and added the new playoff system to the game, which should have been done last year. Now don't get me wrong, I love baseball and this is by far the better of the two games. But you can't expect me to shell out $60 for a game year after year that isn't doing anything different. They need to sit down, play NBA2K13's Association Mode and see how it is done. Listen to the commentary, watch how they talk about your stats, saving your stats and records, more than just 6 of them like this game has. I love baseball and it is a shame that this type of innovation in sport games isn't spread around to the other sports besides basketball. This will be the first time I pass on The Show ever. They need to change it up, what are they waiting for? Another baseball game to do it better and then become irrelevant?
Rated 10 out of 10 by deedub Beautiful Game!
I bought a copy of The Show yesterday. I'm sorry to say it's the first time I've ever played the franchise. This is the most beautiful game I've ever played. I mean, it looks like you're watching a real life game and you have control over real life players. And the gameplay is unbelievable. You can adjust your settings in any way imaginable. Want to use pure analog stick pitching? You got it. Want the simple single button pitching? You got it (classic style, X for the 4 seam fastball, square for the circle change, etc.) Same thing for hitting. Analog, classic..any way you're comfortable with. And I love how I can set my pitcher on veteran pitching while at the same time set my batters on rookie (just until I become more familiar with everything). Honestly, if i didn't have a PS3 I would go out and buy one for the sole purpose of playing this game. If you're a baseball fan and have a PS3, GO BUY THIS. You owe it to yourself.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Norse51 By far the best sports game available
One of the first games I bought years ago when I switched over from Xbox 360 to PS3 was the Show and it has only gotten better every year. The thing I like about this years edition is the subtle changes from last year. The game play is a little smoother, new player animations that make double plays, catch and throws, really everything just smoother and more realistic. The ball physics seem to be a lot better as well when it comes to bloop singles or hooking a ball just inside the foul line. Also the ability to pull a ball down the line this is much more realistic, last year it was almost impossible to get a ball down the line at third base. Overall all an excellent game for anyone who loves baseball beginner or expert the play is intuitive and there are enough options to make it easy or very difficult depending on the skill level
Rated 1 out of 10 by Shedrick DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON THIS GAME
I bought this game based on the reviews. I should have stuck with MLB 2K13. The 2K13 hating wire ups must be from people that work for The Show. I stopping buying this game 4 years ago because of the ridiculous game play for running bases and pitching was horrible. There is not consistency. This version is just as bad if not worse. The pitching is bad. I am happy if I can throw strikes even if it gets hit. There is no consistency, like if I threw with the meter like "x" and the ball went "y", I should be able to compensate and have a good idea where the ball will go. Well, that is not the case. It is so random I am going to trade this in tomorrow for 2k13. I have had that game for the last 3 years and it is fun and enjoyable and a little challenging but still fun.

This is the third year in a row I have purchased MLB The Show and I am once again very impressed with what SCEA San Diego has done with the game. Gameplay is as realistic as ever and the graphics are miles and miles beyond what MLB 2K has to offer. The Franchise, Road to the Show, Diamond Dynasty, and newly added Postseason modes are all tons of fun and continue to improve with each year's edition. The only real drawback I can find with the game is that the announcing is not great but that's a minor thing to me personally so it isn't a big problem. If you own a PS3 and enjoy baseball, I would certainly recommend this game.

I am a obsessive red sox fan for a while and I have to say I was very disappointed that their third cover person (Papi '06, Pedroia '09, and Gonzalez '12) was traded by the sox own stupidity but that is another story . (Please don't mind my droning on and on). I am now thrilled to put that behind me and enjoy another summer of MLB the Show. I was hoping to see a new build a stadium feature for franchise and an ownership mode but i guess that will have wait. I was also hopping for real advertisements. Anyway not to make the whole thing negative I am very excited for a playoff mode. I think this as also a very well needed addition.
Rated 10 out of 10 by SenorGordo This Game is Just.........Amazing
I have all of the MLB : The Show games all the way back to 06 on the PS2. This game is by far my favorite. The graphics are stunning. So much so that sometimes my friends think im watching a real game. The commentary is a little dry and many of the lines are the same as last year. Other than that, it is a very solid game. One thing they fixed is when you trade players, the uniform they are in in their picture changes to the team they are then on's uniform. This is a minor detail, but it means alot to me. The game is very fun, but after a while it will get boring, like all games.
