MLB 09: The Show
Game Is Good But.....
overall this game is fantastic i was so excited when i got it, but the graphics are not that good but it was for psp what do you expect. i do recommend to buy this game it is awesome.
Whenever I play this Game, it is IMPOSSIBLE to win nd my raning is PRO!!
This game is very good for all sport fans. The graphics are stunning, the broadcasters are good, and the gameplay is fun, especially road to the show. However, it is very challenging to reach the triple A league and the majors in road to the show. The only chance, in my opinion, a player has a chance to reach the big leagues is if he/she is a pitcher, considering that it is very difficult to hit extra base hits and singles in that case. Overall, good game and anybody interested should buy it.
good, but boring after a while
this is a good game, it is fun when you get the hang of it, but the road to the show, well i'll start off with the good things, you get to play, and it is fun to play at first, but as it goes on it gets boring, your skill's start to decrease, butyou have to get your advancment goals done, or else the manager gets mad, and i have been in AAA for almost two seasons now, and 7 tims in a row completed all my advancment goals, but then i get 7 e-mails saying that you did good but were going to keep you in AAA a little while longer, and i have like 20 e-mails about good job today, or clutch at bat, or, getting on base, good example of it. and my guy has a .475 BA, 49 RBI, 4 HR and i lead the AAA in all star votes, and i have a 61 game hitting streak after 70 games this season last season i was .456 with 7 HR 39RBI in 85 games, in AAA and in AA i was .502 with 15 RBI and 3 HR in 31 games. I DON"T KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!!!
I really like this game. It is better than 2k9, and if you like baseball, this is a good game for you. Road to the show is great, but it is pretty hard to make yourself a good player. Season mode is awesome, but the rules for the draft are tricky to follow and you have to obey a lot more complex rules than in 2k9. Also, in terms of gameplay, and you attempt to strike someone out, there are way too many foul balls. It is also very difficult to come across a homer while playing. But overral, if you are stuck between 2k9 or MLB 09 the Show, pick the Show.
Not good but not bad
This game is not very good because it is not that different to MLB 08 and the graphics aren't so good.But overall, it is okay. Hope MLB 11 could be a lot better.
it was too hard and the graphics were awful
when i first got the game i got so exited to finally get a baseball game. i was very dissapointed when i played it. MVP baseball was better graphics. i would be doing perfect through about 5 or 6 innings in pitching. then all the sudden they would get homerun after homerun. and on btting it was hard to just get on base. i didn't score through the first2 games. also i didn't hit one home run. the graphics were awful and all the players seemed tohave the same skill set. it also had confusing base running controles.
If you have a psp I would not recomend this game
I would not recomend this game at all. I think that the game is not nearly as good as people say it is. In Road to the show they on;y record your stats for 2 seasons and than stop recording your stats. In Season the game does not work as you ask it to do like the Coustomize player is bad because no matter how bad you make him he still asks for at least 8 million dollars. I think that the graphics arn't very good becasue I like games with good graphics and I know what good would be and I thought that the graphics where very poor. Because I was thinking it would be much better because on PS3 they where very good and I thought it would at least be 2 times better because of how much people where saying it was. I have not played 10 the show on PSP but hopefully it has some improvment.
Good Game to play!
Last Year was my first year buying the MLB The Show Series and I am impressed. This game is really fun to play! My favorite part has to be the Spring Training. I love the Spring Training feature and having the right to get to play with everyone on your forty man roster. I am also looking forward to the regular season and playoffs. I have not tried the Road to the Show feature but it also as well seems like a nice feature. The only bad part of this game is the graphics. I do think some of the Spring Training Fields aren't that good, and there is no umpires. The only problem with this game is the Graphics and Animation, and they need to update their rosters. For example Adam Dunn, Manny Ramirez. and Ivan Rodriguez were still free agents. I would recommend this game, but there are some changes that Sony is going to have to make to this game.
This is better than what I expected. I expected a game that is just slightly better than 2K9, but this game is miles better than all of the 2K games. Although I'm sure this game is better on PS3 than it is on PSP, it's still real fun. The main concept is the same, and ha sthe same things, but the graphics a fuzzy, and the crowd animations are very mediocre. The announcing is fantastic, and helps a lot on Road to the Show, when you fastforward to your next event. It also has what the players are like right. One thing that I think gets a little bit annoying is the meter for pitching, which is just something that takes up screen space, and is rather hard to figure out. The controls are great, and I really like how you can guess the pitch, and it informs you if you are correct. I also don't like that you can't do a power swing on Rookie mode, because I always do the easiest mode, then work my way up, but since there is no power swing it's almost impossible to hit homeruns. So all in all, this game is actually very fun and fantastic, but there's just lots of little things that annoy me. I'm new to these games, so I'd reccomend it to anyone who hasn't played these games, and probably anyone who has played these games, but if you have a PS3, get that version, because I'm sure the PS3 version is way better than the PSP version, mostly graphics wise. If you have a PSP, you should get this game.
