The Show is critically and commercially acclaimed as the most realistic baseball game on the market. It's most popular feature, Road to the Show, allows the player to create a character and lead him to the forefront of the major leagues. While this mode focuses on the offensive and defensive actions of one player, the series is also widely known for its incredibly deep Franchise mode. Here, the user is instead given complete control over a multitude of decisions that truly bring a sense of realism to the game. The Show is a perfect example of a breakthrough in baseball simulation that continues to improve year after year."
