A Binge Gamer Review: MLB 09: The Show 0

By James Walker • March 2, 2009 [Edit] ”Baseball? It’s just a game - as simple as a ball and a bat. Yet, as complex as the American spirit it symbolizes. It’s a sport, business - and sometimes even religion.” Ernie Harwell I have been a fan of baseball, and specifically the Detroit Tigers, since before I picked up my first SEGA Genesis controller. Around this time of year I turn into a giddy little school child as I anxiously await opening day around the league. Thankfully, whil...

Best baseball game to date, but some weirdness creeps in. 0

Starting with 2006's re-branding (and re-invention) of Sony's baseball series as "The Show", developer San Diego Studios has steadily evolved a rock-solid core gameplay model to the stupidly high level of excellence it's at now. I honestly couldn't imagine how SCEA could elevate the series after playing last year's MLB 08. Sure, some oddities could be fixed, some new details could be added to online or franchise modes, but the game was already at such a high level, I expected the franchise to s...

Back, back, back, GONE! 0

It's the top of the sixth, bases loaded, and you're down by one with two men out.  You're only facing Johan Santana, who has set you down twice on strikes today.  You wait for his signature change-up low in the zone, and hope you can smash one somewhere and get lucky, and drive in a pair.  The catcher gives the sign and Santana begins his wind-up.  That change-up, it never comes.  In its place is a fastball, inside corner.  Didn't see it coming, strike three, and you walk back  to the dugout, a...

The Show continues to be the best MLB game available 0

  To be as forthcoming as possible, I must admit that I’ve not spent significant time with a baseball game since EA’s stellar MVP Baseball 2005. Sadly, this was also EA’s last professional baseball outing, as Take Two bought the rights to produce Major League Baseball games that same year in response to EA’s purchase of the NFL license. Lucky for us baseball fans, Take Two’s deal with the MLB does not apply to first-party publishers who wish to create an MLB game of their own, leaving the doo...

The Show? Fo Sho. 0

Sony has done it again. Not only is MLB 09 The Show the defining baseball experience for this year, it continues its dominance over a weaker 2k franchise which benefits from MLB licensing deals - and it does it handily. While there are some very small issues with this years rendition, the combination of superior gameplay, stellar animations and gorgeous stadiums and models make The Show a must-buy for PS3 owners.The Show allows different styles of baseball enthusiasts to play, whether it's an ul...
