  • Summary: MLB 14 The Show is a realistic baseball game that allows players to feel the MLB experience with moments such as when you're called up to the majors, a sacrifice fly to left field, or crushing a walk-off homer to win it all.

    MLB 14: The Show is a fantastic first offering on a new platform. I am impressed that every single feature is included, and the visuals are truly stunning.

    MLB 14: The Show on PlayStation 4 is certainly the version you’ll want if you’re a hardcore baseball fan. It’s achingly pretty (with only a few minor drawbacks), it sounds great, and the gameplay is top-notch.

    Player detail is also taken to the next level, with renders that make the players easily recognizable not only by looking at their face, but by looking at their animations as well.

    Overall, even with its faults, it's hard not to still absolutely love MLB 14 the Show, especially on the PS4.

    While there are certainly some issues holding MLB 14: The Show back from being a classic in the sport game genre, there’s far more good than bad. The attention to detail, the plethora of content and the rock-solid gameplay make up for any problems.

    Sony’s MLB franchise has unquestionably made a successful leap to PlayStation 4. The franchise has never looked better and the game has made yet another jump into the realm of ‘true to life’. MLB: The Show retains its crown as the undisputed king of baseball games. This being said, it remains by in the large the same game we have played over the course of the past few years and the glitches do seem more prevalent.

    The Show was clearly on its last legs on the PS3, and the revamped, more true-to-life ballparks infuse some much-needed atmosphere in the series’ PS4 debut. Meanwhile, Road to the Show includes several tweaks that help you create a more dominating prospect. Unfortunately, the player models don’t receive the same level of care, and the game’s online components aren’t on the level of most other sports franchises—issues that absolutely must be addressed going forward.

    Immersive gameplay and very nice graphic. Like all games, some weird things happens, like people merging. Do not meter, The Show is really impressive. Once I heard, Baseball is a poker game with bat and ball. I can feel this feeling playing this game. Expand

    Not as good as last year's, but still plenty entertaining and a must-own for baseball fans. Just wish they would eventually bring back all the old stadiums to use. Expand

    Unacceptable installation process. I'm talking days, not hours. I play one mode, RTTS. RTTS is broken which makes the game unplayable. You spend a season or two upgrading your player and once you hit the majors, it is impossible to keep up with maintaining the points. You sit on the bench and earn nothing while your player degrades and erases all your hard work. Gamebreaker. If you only play RTTS, don't buy this game. An update could fix this obvious problem, but I'm not holding my breath. Probably a pathetic attempt to get our money buying stubs and in the process, they ruined the game mode. Idiots. Staying away from future versions of this crap. Expand
