  1. MLB 09 doesn’t set new grounds, but it does a serviceable job not screwing everything up. Last year’s version was somewhat better, so it’s unfortunate that this year’s iteration took a step back.
  2. What was once the be-all-end-all of baseball video games on the PSP is quickly becoming a shadow of its former self. Like so many storied professionals, age is finally catching up to the series.

    MLB 09: The Show is a solid portable baseball game, but a few changes would've made it a homerun.

  5. Despite some flaws, I really enjoyed MLB '09: The Show on the PSP.

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 »
