Gameshark: MLB 08: The Show Review

There is so much to like about the game – the downloadable sliders, the gameplay, the audio (foul balls never sounded so good in 5.1 audio), the weekly roster updates, the impressive amount of stats; this truly could be the successor to High Heat Baseball. There's one problem, and it's the same problem with last year's game: the online is just terrible; games are full of lag if you can even create a game, and leagues cannot be formed unless you have been a registered member for two weeks.

Who makes up these insane rules? If you bought The Show on release date, you cannot start a league for two weeks? Perhaps the developers knew that the online play wasn't going to be good so by doing this pre-emptive strike, there wouldn't be as many leagues forming and thereby there would be less bandwidth used?

If the online play gets up and running, there's no doubt that the game should be rated an 'A'. You could even make a case for it as a system seller for any baseball fan-MLB The Show is just that good.
