    While the Show on the PS2 is still an engaging and enjoyable game, it's definitely been overshadowed by the other versions on Sony's other systems. The visuals are getting a bit worn, and some of the changes feel like they weaken elements of the game, like those made to the fielding.

You pay $30 and they don't even update the ages of the players. Not only that, a good 25% of the commentary is inaccurate. In franchise mode, you start out with whatever random crap manager they give you, and are unable to fire him until the end of your first season. The off-season is upgraded, but hardly enough to make up for the fact that this is the second year in a row that this franchise has fallen short in correcting glitches and inaccurate commentary. In addition, the fielding changes, basically suck! Full Review »
