  1. Just about as good as baseball can get on the PS2, and will no doubt keep fans happy for many months. Between the franchise, Road To The Show, and online modes, it’s packed with top-notch gameplay that rivals the best we’ve seen.
  2. The only way that this game is better is if they can find a way for the vendors to bring me a $7 hot dog every few minutes, so I don’t have to stop playing to eat.
  3. MLB 08: The Show is the best offering of baseball you'll get no matter what PlayStation console you pick it up for. The PlayStation 2 version of the game still features practically everything that makes the PS3 game so great, with the exception of very minor technical differences in online and the audio, and naturally the visuals.
  4. With a dearth of features and tweaks that make this experience the best out there, gamers will have plenty to do before and after the first pitch of the season.
