PS3 Review: MLB 13: The Show {Vagary.tv}

"Sports sequels typically reach for refinement. The occasional game will do more, but largely, especially the sequels to well received games, don’t reach all that far. MLB 13 is no different. It attempts to build on its predecessor without leaving it behind. Risks aren’t taken so much as previously identified weaknesses are rectified. The results, save for one particularly glaring area, are a game that is more attractive, better animated, and a better spectacle. The core play itself is little different from last year, with the focus on achieving a much more complete presentation experience, especially in Road to the Show mode. But the emergence of wonky base running controls mars what otherwise is an utterly too familiar experience. The game, in one core area, fails, a stumble which causes MLB 13 The Show to be less of a game than its predecessor." (MLB 13: The Show, PS3) 3/5
