    I think the real conversation is whether or not it's the best baseball game of all time. In my opinion, it is the greatest video game simulation of America's past time ever.
  2. Once again, Sony has published an amazing piece of software. MLB 09 The Show is the game that all other baseball games want to be. It's not perfect, but MLB 09 The Show is the best baseball simulation available on PSP.

    MLB 09: The Show is a very addictive game. Once played you'll be immersed and with the "Road to the show" game mode, you'll never get bored. Although the graphics had to be lowed down due to disk space but that's just perfect for a Baseball simulation game in the Sony PSP. Worth buying. Full Review »

    solid game but no real changes and road to the show is nearly impossible
