  1. MLB 10: The Show really surprised me in the way that it featured a very solid baseball title for the PSP.
  2. I received the game via PSN download, so I cannot vouch for loading times on UMD purchases. However, I will say that on the Sony forums, series veterans are complaining that the PSP’s MLB 10: The Show actually offers fewer features than MLB 09 The Show – but as a first time visitor, I came with no expectations and I absolutely love the game.
  3. As an avid player of the franchise since it first arrived on the Playstation 3, having the possibility to bring the home experience with me anywhere was certainly interesting but I wasn’t expecting it to be this great.
  4. While the game offers few changes over the 2009 version, and even takes a step back with the removal of online play, this still a deep baseball game with tons of great features.
  5. It’s got gorgeous graphics, wonderfully detailed stadiums, professional commentary, and gameplay mechanics nearly as fine-tuned and realistic as those found in its acclaimed PS3 cousin. It is also extremely customizable.
  6. MLB 10: The Show for the PSP remains the premier portable baseball title around.

    The graphics are great, the physics are great, all the modes are great, commentary's great. Only downside is when sliding into a baseThe graphics are great, the physics are great, all the modes are great, commentary's great. Only downside is when sliding into a base sometimes the runner slides through the fielder, and when a right-handed batter walks, he always walks through the arm of the catcher so that's freaky. But a superb game overall. Expand

    In 2020 I bought a PSP 3000. I used to have the original PSP over 10 years ago. I loved MLB the show 09 and 10 for PS3. So when I seen it inIn 2020 I bought a PSP 3000. I used to have the original PSP over 10 years ago. I loved MLB the show 09 and 10 for PS3. So when I seen it in the playststion store on my PS3 for PSP I bought it right away. I like these older games more because my Tigers were actually good back then. Also new games added stuff Im not really a fan of. This PSP version is good for a PSP game. I am pissed that it doesn't have franchise mode... At least you can still do a season. The game looks good overall. The gameplay is ok but it is a bit harder not using a duelshock controller. Running in the outfield is kind of slow but it works. And I find pitches seem faster on PSP. But overall it's amazing I can play this on PSP. Expand

    The graphics are great as well as the game modes, but the actual gameplay is terrible which is why I give it a 5. The biggest problem I haveThe graphics are great as well as the game modes, but the actual gameplay is terrible which is why I give it a 5. The biggest problem I have seen is that the developers made the game revolve around offense. Therefore the pitching is absolutely terrible. It doesnt matter at all how good your pitcher is, or who hes facing, hes always at risk of giving up a big hit, or homerun. It makes no difference how good your location on pitches is. This single development rule put into AI ruined the game. If you are defensive minded this game is definitely going to be a disappointment. Furthermore if you play season mode it makes no sense at all to invest in pitching, or defense. It literally makes no difference who you have on the mound, or on defense. Even the worst of batters will hit well against you and the worst fielders will regularly make highlight reel plays. Im disappointed in the development teams lack of detail. Expand
