    Its the same as last years game. There are a couple changes to RTTS but nothing to warrant dropping $60 or trading in a bunch of your games to get this. Personally I think MLB 10 The Show was the best game and was almost perfect.This year pitching is harder and batting is also more complicated. Do I feel cheated again? Yup. Will you? Without a doubt.

    Yea so if you haven't heard, this game hasn't changed all that much from last year. Same silly bugs we get ever year. Same goofy problems. Biggest aspect of change you'll want to know, the guess pitch feature. They changed it so that you either guess correctly on pitch & location & lock on, or get one wrong & get no feedback whatsoever. The rankings, as you also probably heard, areYea so if you haven't heard, this game hasn't changed all that much from last year. Same silly bugs we get ever year. Same goofy problems.

The rankings, as you also probably heard, are atrocious. I can site examples all day but here's the bottom line: if you don't play online, stick with the 12 or older version of this. If you're the kind of person who has to have the new thing when it cones out, don't say you weren't warned. Expand

    I'm not sure why people have such a problem with this game. The Show is, year after year, the best baseball game I've ever played. I feel like they've nailed down how to make a great game, and there won't be massive improvements or changes from here on out because there isn't much to improve upon, until they completely redesign and redevelop the game. I like the small improvements andI'm not sure why people have such a problem with this game. The Show is, year after year, the best baseball game I've ever played. I feel like they've nailed down how to make a great game, and there won't be massive improvements or changes from here on out because there isn't much to improve upon, until they completely redesign and redevelop the game. I like the small improvements and changes this year that I've noticed so far, like FINALLY using a numbering system for player ratings. It was always just the red bar or letter grades. I'm not a big online gamer because most people who play online quit when they start losing, and it's not fun. Or they play like morons, which is also not fun. But as a game to play on your own or with other people in who are sitting right next to you, it's great. They can't change the game completely every single year, because it's costs a ton of money to do that, and they'd never get it done on time. The game isn't broken like Madden has become, or like 2K baseball has pretty much always been, so there's no need for a complete overhaul. The graphics and animations are as smooth as ever, and the interface is only slightly altered, so there's a very, very small learning curve. So stop complaining about the little things, like how this minor league isn't in the game, or that guy's tattoo isn't in the game, and appreciate the fact that you have a choice of baseball games every single year, and you're not stuck with the garbage that is 2K.

    A great, deep and entertaining baseball sim without a tutorial to welcome newcomers.

    It’s the best baseball simulation available, but the biggest new feature is the mode for beginners, not very interesting to PS3 baseball aficionados. And the rest will probably ignore this game. [CD-Action 05/2013, p.79]

    The Show remains the most authentic sports series of all time. FIFA can't touch it. [May 2013, p.108]
