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!
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!
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.
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.
I have all of the games since 09 and I think this will be the best one yet. Playing this on the PS4 will be amazing. Hope it is as good on the PS3!
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!!!
The game is fine and an upgrade over 13. I do have several problems/complaints:The points earned are not equal to the points necessary for example, I bought 50K worth of points as I selected both a closer and a shortstop. I loaded the points on both selections and both earn about 75-100 points per game. Now the closer earned about 60 saves and all of the points earned went to the attributes. By the end of the season my total actually went down as the "cost" to increase ability exceeded the points earned. So after a season where I saved every game and did not increase anything but pitching and participated in every practice and got the "gold' my ability went down. For the SS I earned more points as I played every game and my ability was about the same as the season concluded. so I think that the game would prove to be better if your training points were the amount required to get the medal and not the paultry 400 points. For the closer I also did the practice and struck out and got out all except 1 base hit and the base hit cost me 150 points and it reduced my medal to silver for one session. Why is a strikeout 200 points and a single cost 150?
most fun I've had playing a baseball game
the one thing that makes this game so much fun for me is the RTTS player lock being available for every game mode. i've never played the rtts mode because i like to manage my roster (set my line ups, make trades, edit my players, create new rookies etc.) and rtts wouldn't allow me to do that. with this game i can select season mode, create my own player, place the player lock on my own player and still manage my roster, manage the team etc. for me its the best of both worlds, rtts and season/ franchise mode. graphics are unreal. game play is tough, but that is a trade mark of the mlb show games. the good news is the game play is not so difficult that it turned me off to the game. i have the show 13, mlb 2k 10, 11, and 12. i enjoy all of those games, but i am addicted to this game. 10/10 rating, no major complaints.
