MLB 2011: The Show
Awesome game Anolog control sucks
I bought this game 2 days ago and i love everything about it exept for the anolog control. that is the only thing i hate about it so i just swiched it back to classic controls.
2K can't compare
MLB the show will ALWAYS be the leading baseball video game over 2K every year. Not only does the show have better graphics and all those other things that have made it better than 2K in the past years, but now the show is compatible with the move. Is 2K compatible with the move? No. And I don't know if anyone noticed but this game is 3D compatible. That just puts the cherry on top. I do admit 2K does make better basketball games, but they should stop wasting money on making 2K baseball games for the PS3, because this is just one of the many PS3 exclusives that are obviously not available for the XBOX. For all you XBOX owners, please get a PS3. I cannot stressed it enough through my reviews. And for the PS3 owners who still buy baseball 2K games, how much more convincing do you need? Please switch to the show and you will not be disappointed.
Mlb11 the show prt 2
I had an xbox360 for 5yrs and had problems so did an awesome investment and bought a ps3 slim and love it.....also the reason i got it is because of mlb the show,it's worth the money for system and the game.Im excited that this series they included rain and better 5.0 RTTS feature cant wait..........go Mets
I have bought this series for the last 3 years and it gets better every year. There are a few things to help the game. I play the road to the show and I find a few things that make the game frustrating.
My player 3rd year in the majors, I lead the league in avg., HR, RBI, but I go from starter to bench player? Why, well I hit a single, while on first base, the 3rd base coach tells me to steal. I get caught stealing, next thing I know the coach tells me how I don’t have a green light to steal and I’m on the beach. Seems like a pretty dumb reason to beach your best player on the team, not to mention best in the league. It’s the coach calling for me to steal, then he benches me for his call. That part of the game needs to be improved.
Again I’m the best in the league but the manager has me hitting 2nd or 1st in the line up. Wouldn’t you put the best player batting 3rd or 4th?
Also if you’re a starter, why would you play 3 games, take 1 game off, then play 3 game then take 1 off? Some ball players never miss a game unless they are hurt.
When you are on base, it would be nice if you could look around. Example when you are on 2nd base it would be nice to see the 2nd baseman running up for a pick off.
If you get player of the game, you should get points for that.
Super REALISTIC phenomenal gameplay
This is the best baseball game ever made to date. I've read alot of bad reviews but my guess is that these people are either inferior to the overall knowledge of the game of baseball or they just are not patient in learning the game. If you are one of those people that like to dominate every single game and hit 4 homers a game with a big slugger then go play MLB Slugfest or something arcade-like. This game is for the superior gamers who understand the game of baseball and are patient enough to learn the gameplay and become better at it every game. It may seem difficult at first but that's because it is the most realistic game you can buy. Baseball is not easy, therefore, why should playing a baseball video game be easy? MUST BUY!!
ok i know the game looks and will be amazing as always but mauer again? c'mon dont turn into 2k that used jeter FOR EVER i always liked wondering who was gonna be on the cover but now they're getting lazy just a little thing i had a gripe with
Going to be awesome
I have gotten the show games since mlb 07 the show. Every year they have gotten better and better. So I expect better graphics and better all around play. The reason I expect those things is because those things get better and better in each and every game. I just wish that they could put someone different on the cover. Not that it really matters but it is kindve exciting to see who will be on the next year's cover. Joe Mauer is a good player but I wish that they put someone on the cover like the National or American League MVP. Last year's was great but I hope that 11 will be better.
Just played the demo!
For starters, this is easily the best baseball game ever. The previous best baseball game ever was last years version. I found that the analog controls in this game make it even more realistic and very easy to catch on to. This game improved graphically, too. If anyone is a baseball video game fan and is on the fence about buying this game, and also wants a realistic, true to MLB experience-- DO NOT HESITATE.. I think we all know by now that 2k11 is a rental- at best. I'm 31 years old, I love baseball games, I've never been more satisfied with a baseball game before. In a world where most games have flaws, you won't find any here.
The best baseball game, but also the hardest.
Ok let me start off by saying that this is the best baseball game ever made, but also the hardest. Someone below me gave it a bad review because it soudns like he's just mad that hes not good at it. It takes some time to get good but once you do your in love. Just like real baseball, if you swing at balls you will miss or get an out. you have to be patient and wait for good pitches just like real baseball. you have to work the count. the graphics are amazing, i was at my friends house and played 2k11 and it was horrible. i brought over my ps3 the and mlb 11 the show the next day and he went out and bought a ps3 just for this game. if your a baseball fan you'll love this game.
Road to the show
RTTS should take some notes off of madden 11 super star mode. the celebrations are much better. RTTS needs to be like that. it is cool that on madden 11 they show players getting off the bus and walking into the stadium. Meeting the president after winning the super bowl; basically showing off your characters success. You should show them in the locker rooms. RTTS is incredible, I love that part of the game. I play college ball and I love creating a player and making it to the show. The game play and on the field action is awesome, but try and add some off the field additions such as before and after the game stuff such as dealing with reporters and press conferences after the game. Make winning the world series cool!!!! or hitting 61 HR in a season cool (Thats a big deal) make it seem like a big deal. work on celebrations. Making the players dog pile on the mound is not enough, you need to show the players freaking out, individual players celebrating, the locker room party when they win the world series. Also show more of the created player. such as stretching before a game, getting ready in the locker room. Also you should focus more on the created player for example my guy was batting .700 on mlb the show 10, the commentators did not mention him that much. My player was playing for the Yankees and the commentators were talking about A-Rod At the beginning of the game saying "this is the guy to watch out for" even tho I was batting insane numbers they should be talking about me. Over all look at how madden does the super star mode. Off the field camera work (Showing them getting off the bus in suits), and basically focus on the player (if he is good on the game; if he sucks then don't talk about him) and life of a MLB player. Love MLB the show best game I ever played!!!!!
