    Sony San Diego eschewed developing splashy back-of-the-box bullet points in favor of refining an already great game, exhibiting a confidence that is itself quietly remarkable — just like this series' consistency.

    MLB 15: The Show is the best baseball game ever made. But we have said that before about its predecessors. Sony San Diego has been doing so well, it is hard to top their own games. We specifically love the upgrade in the graphics and the online modes that have improved greatly.

    It simply looks and plays better than any baseball game ever has. That doesn’t hide the fact that the game also fails to innovate off the field in any material way. While that’s not a fatal flaw, there will come a time in the near future when its fans will demand new and interesting ways to enjoy its beauty.

    As a baseball simulator, MLB 15: The Show delivers on almost every front, and it would be unfair to penalize the game for being too good, for too long. However, a good review score doesn’t necessarily mean that the latest edition is worth $60, especially to players who bought last year’s version.

    While still a fun and accurate depiction of America's pastime, MLB 15: The Show does little to move the franchise forward, and is hampered by the same recurring online issues.

    It’s weird when you feel so unenthusiastic about a game that you know is “good.” This used to be a series that I would never miss. These days, I’d probably take a long break from The Show if I could.

    5 games into my franchise season and its becoming pretty clear I'll be playing this edition of the show for some time to come. Fluid5 games into my franchise season and its becoming pretty clear I'll be playing this edition of the show for some time to come. Fluid animations and better lighting are prolly the 2 biggest changes and while that might not sound like a lot it really makes a difference. I'm using the pure analog pitching setting and it is siiiick. You may have to change some settings on ur tv to eliminate a black border on the screen set ur tv settings to 16:9 and you'll be using every inch of ur screen. In conclusion its early yet but A-rods leading the league in hrs after 5 games and Tanka has 20+ strikeouts in 2 games. So go Yankees and go Sony you hit it outta the park. Expand

Online play has zeroBy far the best version of The Show, been playing since '08 and they've really smoothed out all the camera movements. Online play has zero lag that Ive encountered in around 20 games, and the changes to some of the Franchise and Diamond Dynasty modes are welcome additions to this gem of a series. If you're on the fence whether its worth the upgrade, 100% YES it is... the Online play alone is worth it since '14 sucked the big one with glitches and lag galore no matter your connection. Expand

With a ton of new features, including General ManagerMLB 15: The Show proves once again why it is the crowned jewel of baseball simulation. With a ton of new features, including General Manager mode, this game packs a punch. The gameplay style is very similar to last year but I am a firm believer in the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." If you are looking for a huge leap in this department do not bother as you will be disappointed but if you love it, then you will be super excited and will be able to pick up right where you left off. If you are a diehard fan of Road to the Show mode, which is my personal favorite, you will love the ability to carry your saved game over from last years game and continue on your quest to being a future Hall of Fame player. If you are a baseball fan, you have to give this game a try! Expand

    Hey, like I always say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. More of the same, but it's still the best sports game right now. Saying it's badHey, like I always say, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. More of the same, but it's still the best sports game right now. Saying it's bad because it's the same as the last one is like saying the new Lamborghini is bad because it has the same horsepower as the last one. Great game. Expand
