Game Informer: MLB 08: The Show Review - The Best Experience in Baseball

Game Informer writes: "In the 119th game of the season, my rookie pitcher finally developed command over his curveball.

I found myself LOVING this game. And that's a first. I could hardly believe I was even playing a baseball game. MLB 08 the show is the new standard in baseball games. But that's just my opinion.

Now they need to add some of these elements to NBA the life.

I haven't played a baseball game in years, but this one intrigued me enough that I went out and picked up a copy. If I weren't out of town right now, I'd still be playing the RTTS mode. This has easily become my favorite sports title, and maybe the best I've ever played.
