    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

    MLB The Show has got to be the class of the sports video gaming world. This is the first time that I've jumped onto the Show ship since MLB 2008. The graphics are impressive, and the presentation is very well done; the developers have done a great job with the camera angles and the cut scenes to make the game resemble a TV broadcast.

Road to the Show is very easy to get into, and you can play through entire seasons without simulating within a few days if you play a lot. However, the online play is fairly disastrous, to say the least. It could be due to my connection (which I've rarely had problems with on other games), but I found online games to be very laggy, which makes gameplay impossible, since baseball is a timing-based game. Offline modes are very addictive, and the game is worth picking up for them alone. Collapse

    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]
