  1. Despite the improved visuals, MLB sports a few nagging glitches, and although the game's fun, it doesn't feel like a huge step up from its predecessor.
  2. For hardcore baseball fans, this is possibly the perfect baseball game. For the more casual crowd, though, you may want to try the cheaper PS2 version.
  3. MLB 07: The Show is one of those games that had the potential to be a real home run hitter coming out of the gates with very little in terms of expectations. I would say the final results are more of a base hit than anything that they game had the potential to do.
  4. It's a solid game for baseball junkies, but it's paced like...well, a baseball game. You've got to be into it to get anything out of it.
  5. 60
    It's painfully obvious that Sony just took its PS2 game and jacked up a few stats here and there.
  6. The bugs and the lame graphics show that MLB 07: The Show was a rush job. And that’s a shame, because there’s a lot of good stuff here.
  7. Right now the baseball game to beat on the PS3 is Konami’s "Professional Baseball Spirits 4," and even with the language barrier, it’s still a more enjoyable game.
  8. 55
    The Show is a solid game, but where the PS2 (and PSP) versions are inspired, the PS3 offering doesn't give the same feeling of "real" baseball. It's a no-contest this season: For the best new-gen baseball, stick with the most beautiful choice: "MLB 2K7."

    Game is simply fantastic. The best baseball game out there imo and the best one I've ever played. They could beef up the minors and some Game is simply fantastic. The best baseball game out there imo and the best one I've ever played. They could beef up the minors and some very small complaints but I don't see how any baseball fan could not love this game. The fun factor is there in a big way. Full Review »
