    MLB 12 on the Vita is a clean presentation of the baseball experience on the go. It raises the bar for realism a notch with its enhanced physics, but loses what it gains from clumsy animations. There's a lot of room for improvement, both technically and creatively, but for now the game suffers the most from the former.

    The biggest disappointment, though, is the sloppy online play.

    Issues aside, MLB 12: The Show demonstrates a bright future for portable baseball games.

    It's unwelcoming, has some technical hiccups, and the experience has been shaved down to the necessities, but those necessities are incredibly solid. They would just be better if they had the trappings to go with them.

Graphics ate fantastic, I think some people just forget this is on a handheld system. All the modes are here, unlike the psp versions of the game. Graphics, sounds, and controls are all awesome. Some trophies are gonna be hard, but that's a good thing to me. Full Review »

Its taking me some time to get to grips with the controls (there are a lot, haha), but its a solid challenge and the presentation is 2nd to none! Any fan of the series is in for a treat with this title, awesome! Full Review »

Overall, I am enjoying the game and I am new to the series so I am forging up the learning curve. I am very disappointed in the graphics, very. I expected more. I am interested to hear how the community responds to this title. It's feature rich and you can set the controls in many variations to suit you play preference and skill. Not a deal killer but would advise to wait for a price drop to purchase. Full Review »
