MLB 08: The Show
I really like the game, ther are things to improve on, but still pretty good.
Overall a good game
This is a good game with online capability. It is rather easy though that is why I gave it a nine. The best part of the game is the commentary. It makes you feel like your watching a ball game on t.v. The graphics are ok considering its a psp game. Good have done better. The weakest part of the game is the online play. This is were it gets boring. Yeah your playing online but people cheat. Like I found out when the other player hits a ground ball to you the cheater will pause the game and he/she will get a easy base hit. And sometimes other people have a bad connection and people will quit often. Another weak part is the challenge. I put it on hall of fame and I still won 23-0. I guess i'm just good like that. But yes this game could have been better if they would have made it more challenging. Overall it's a good buy if you like baseball. It's better than 2k8. Yes I own both.
I love it. I play it almost every day and I never get tired of it. The controls are easy, the levels of playing arent even that bad. This game is the best of all The Shows to come out.Ryan Howard was a good cover athlete. The rosters are even up to date as of when the game came out. It is the best game to come out PSP. No other game even comes close to this game. It could be very easy and let you win 35-0 or beat you down and win by a lot. It is insanely addicting. and a great game.The minigames like Home Run Derby are very fun to play. You can pick a lot of players and watch them hit a lot of home runs. It is a very well made game and a game that any person can play all day every day for either the PS2 or the PSP. Everyone should definetly consider buying this game if they have a PS2 or a PSP
I got this game a while a go, and it still works well. While the stats and teams arent that updated i still enjoy playing this gameeven though i am going 2 sell it soon.If u dont want 2 spend money on an 09 or 10 the show this is a good game 2 buy. The actual gameplay isnt that much different in the newer games except 4 a few new features and better graphics. This game is also very easy once you get the hang of it but, you still can have a hard time even if you have played it for a long time. For instance sometimes when im playing i cant seem 2 get a hit but other times i have like 7 run innings. This game is also cool because you can unlock the golden era (babe ruth time) and the silver era (nolan ryan time) on your profile and play with them in game. All in all this is a very ennjoyable game and i would recommed it 2 anyone who cant buy the later editions.
This game was a very good game if you love the game of baseball. But if you just like it, it's okay. It gives a good feel for what it's like when you're in career mode and it's off-season features on season are good too. I personally recommend this game to anyone looking to enjoy a good game of baseball. The graphics are just good for a hand held system. The game is very realistic as far as the stuff you must do to get to the show. The goals which may sound simple are sometimes more difficult than may appear. But actually getting there is worth it. The increased amount of options for making your person is also good. For those of you who just want to play now, this is a great game for just that. Setting your roster and picking your starting pitching, your starting pitcher from both the active and inactive roster make for a complete experience. 1 thumb up.
This is a good game. The gameplay is great, and all of the things you love of a baseball game are there, especially the commentators. HOWEVER, some of the team uniforms and stadiums are not accurate (as if they made them from the 90's versions or so) and most of all, the cpu is weird. I played season mode and seems that it is purposely giving me a pattern of W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L-W-L. My teams W% is .500 and always seems to stay there, no matter how hard I try. It's almost impossible to get a winning streak going. Even againts the worst teams with your best pitcher, you still end up continuing the pattern, W-L-W-L-W-L. Your HRs seem to always fall short when the cpu wants to (i.e: 2 stolen HRs in 3 innings) and somehow its pitcher can easily get a double with some RBIs. It would be a lot better if the cpu can be more variant and not follow a pattern.
MLB 08 is one of the best games out there for psp. when i turned it on i saw alot of game modes which are always good to have. My favorite thing about this game is probably the online play and how they show you were to aim the ball when pitching. THe only thing that really dissapointed me was the graphics. EVen though it is still on psp they should of taking more time to really make the graphics good on this game. But othere than that this is a great game. Also if you have mlb 07 or 06 get this one cause it is much better than the others. And if you want a challenge go online and play because it is way harder competion and way more fun that regular season and stuff like that. If you love baseball and want a really really good game than buy this game you wont be dissapointed.
i love it
i really love this game.i love the pitching the batting im not goodat but the pitching im a boss.
One of the best PSP games
I just bought this game and it is simply awesome. You can change the camera angle for pitching and batting to whatever you like. The graphics are some of the best on the PSP (minus the poor crow graphics but who cares about them?). Customizing your lineup and starting pitchers are easy and can be done quickly. The game interface is nice and it is easy to change pitchers or have them warm up. The sound is great and the announcers seem like they’re in a real game! Sure there are some bad thing like sometime when your fielder runs over the ball they don’t pick it up and it is hard to dive(L+R), sometimes it just jumps.(R) and the base running controls are a bit tough but you’ll get used to it. Over all I would definitely recommend this to PSP owners everywhere.
I have been waiting for this game to come out ever since MLB 07 came out. 07 was soooooo much better than 2k7 because of the road to the show mode. this game is going to have such better graphics and the crowd will react to what you do. if you are a pitcher and you strike people out, they will hang K's on the wall after every strike out. Awwwwwww yea man. this game will be sweet
