Gametap: MLB 08: The Show Review

There's more to The Show than the hits and misses of a rising star or the roar from the stands when they root-root-root for that home team. In fact, there are an overwhelming number of features in this game that should keep even the most die-hard fan happy until next spring.

Pros: Unbelievable player animations and details; Road to the Show is addictive and fun; hearing the crowd chant "over-rated!" to A-Rod in a playoff game.

Cons: Collision detection issues; arguing with air; if they charge the mound and fight in real life, why can't Gametap throw punches in the game?

sony scored a homerun with this one. Now lets see what san diego studios can do with NBA09. NBA2k9 will be the best of the 3 basketball games but they can at least outplay EA's out-dated live

well they have to bring "the Life" back to nba 09.

in all honesty i am not a big fan of baseball games, but when i played the demo i was hooked. definitely looking forward to this one.

and played 6 hours straight. Its the first MLB game i have bought in maybe 5-6 years and i can say with all faith its the best sports game i have ever played.

Road to The Show is really a nice change of pace after playing 4-5 games of my teams season...
