MLB 14 The Show
As good as baseball gets on ps3
I gave MLB 14 a perfect score for one simple reason, baseball gets no better on the PS3 PERIOD, I am certainly getting the PS4 version in May, but if i were to get stuck with this version I'd be very happy all season long. I love baseball and feel this game gives us hardcore fans a truly awesome game.The presentation is top notch as usual, the sound is awesome, though i do think the music was better in last years game, and the graphics are really impressive. However where this game truly shines is in the game play. It is very responsive and intuitive with a ton of options to customize the way you play or your skill level. for example if you're comfortable hitting you can bump up your difficulty to veteran for batting while being able to have your pitching set to an easier interface and still choose manual or auto fielding. If you're a fan of baseball this game is for you, however casual fans will find this game quite fun and exciting. Baseball fans rejoice the show is back and better than ever.
Got this for the PS3 so i can quench my thirst for baseball until may when i can trade the game in with the coupon to get the game for 19.99 for the ps4. I only just watched the opening sequence and played a quick game but presentation doesn't disappoint. Sure the graphics, animations, and detail will be ungodly when the PS4 edition comes out, but MLB The Show has always boasted some of the best graphics on PS3. Welcome to the show people. can't wait to start my RTTS tonight. Also, i'm pretty sure they have cross-game saves too which will be amazing when the ps4 comes out so i don't have to start over like i did in NBA 2k14. Only thing i might do is change my guy's look a little bit and we'll be back in business. Love this series.
I'm very new to playstation and just got my PS3 last month! I was an Xbox gamer and was forced into buying MLB 2K each year and it got so old so fast every year. But the first game I got for PS3 was MLB 13 the Show and I can't describe how amazing this game is, I seriously cannot wait to finally be excited to pick up a baseball game on it's release day and not pay attention in school due to the excitement, this game will be amazing and I just know it because hey, when has MLB the Show ever let down. See you all on April 1st! Add me on PS3: CodyRK so we can play together sometime. Game on baseball fans!
The best baseball game ever
graphic got better, more reality, and softer. I have PS3 and MLB 13 The Show, when I compare two games, I can say 14 is much better.
Best Baseball game I have ever played!
They improved so many things on it. I love the game-play and choices they put in the game. Still has that same dumb stuff every other sport game has; impossible plays by the computers, computers cheat. Bad. Always. Got to build into it though.
Like night and day
I recently purchased The Show 14 and a PS3 after many years of playing xbox 360 and having to play 2k baseball. I'd have to say, just WOW! It's like night and day. This game is simply outstanding and blows 2k away. I'm now regretting waiting so long to make the switch back to The Show(had it for ps2). It's so realistic, great graphics, great sound , and great playability. It's so nice to play a baseball game you actually enjoy. I had to put up with a less than average game for the last 5 years. I am really glad I picked up this game. Great game! Definitely pick it up!
Good changes to Road to the Show
If you have played this series before, then you will be familiar with the gameplay as not much has changed there. The major change this year is with the Road to the Show feature, which has greatly improved. You now start off in a 3 game Prospect Feature Showcase, where you play vs the 3 other regions a prospect can be from (West, Central, East, International). You then enter the draft, and can choose to either join the team that drafts you, or, attend a various number of college/junior college options. I just joined the team that drafted me (Toronto) in the second round, so I have yet to experience what happens if you decide to go to college. I imagine that you are given some more experience points to improve your player, and then you enter another draft a few years down the line. There is only one thing that bugs me about this game, which is also why I gave it a 3 on sound: There is a very annoying crowd cheering noise that repeats about once every 6 or 7 seconds. But, since that is really the only negative about this game, I strongly suggest getting it.
This is the best baseball game I have ever played. The graphics are out of this world and the gameplay is awesome. They should make the fielding easier though.
April in the D
I can't wait for this game to come out. I wish I had a PS4! I will be buying this game day 1. GO TIGERS!!!
I didnt think that Sony would pay much attention to this game since the ps4 came out and they'd pay more attention to developing the ps4 version and this would simply be mlb the show 13.5 with updated rosters. Was I wrong. The major thing I noticed was the player faces look a lot more realistic then 13, the game play has gotten better and even the announcing has, but still gets VERY repetitive and has been long overdue for a change and overhaul. Other then that this game is flawless and adding the year to year save just made it better. Perfect game of baseball.
