Apr 5, 2022The ultimate question is whether you should play MLB The Show 22 on Switch. Well, it depends. If it's your main or only platform and you're happy playing CPU and offline games, then yes, it's not bad and holds things together just enough for gameplay to be enjoyable. If you want an 'on-the-go' version to accompany a more powerful home console version, perhaps on Game Pass, then it's another yes. If you want to mainly play online in Diamond Dynasty? No, this isn't the way to go. MLB The Show 22 is admirably packed with content and features, but it's not entirely comfortably packed into the diminutive Switch. It lacks the fluidity and crispness found elsewhere, which is perhaps expected but doesn't change the fact. If you're happy with the compromises, though, then step up to the plate.

May 1, 2022This game runs terribly, looks even worse. I can't believe EA has the balls to charge $60 for this. Played for 3 hours, and never touched it again.

Totally understand the Switch has hardware limitations but boy did this look like a GameCube era game. Gameplay is fun, but I wouldn’t try playing online. If you have a choice between consoles, I wouldn’t go with the switch port here.… Full Review »

There are frame rate issues only on cut scenes which isn’t really an issue, sometimes there’s weird issues like not being able to make a pitching change which can easily be fixed with a patch, and sometimes they call out the wrong name when a batter comes to the plate but other than that the game play is great. Graphics are really solid as long as you’re not an idiot and expecting Xbox series x graphics. If you are an idiot than prepare to be disappointed. I’m loving this game and it gives NBA 2K22 a run for its money as the best sports game on the Switch.… Full Review »
