5.0 out of 5 stars Once Again The Best Baseball Game March 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing The Show since the 2006 iteration, and have purchased every version since. Last year marked the biggest changes to the series by adding full analog controls, Move support (if only in the Home Run Derby mode), and completely revamping the Road to the Show mode. They also replaced Rex Hudler (bleck!) with Eric Karros (yes!) which appealed quite a bit to my Dodgers blue blood. While this year's version doesn't offer the same type of sweeping changes, the game continues to improve on the functions added last year and continues to strive for realism.

Here's a breakdown of the game with strengths and weaknesses.

GAMEPLAY: The biggest change this year is the pitching format. Pulse pitching replaces the meter with a pulsing circle that you place around the strike zone. Time the circle so that it's at its smallest point, and you get the most accurate pitches. The better the control of the pitcher (and the particular pitches), the slower and smaller the circle will be. Erratic pitchers will have fast pulsing circles. And as the pitcher tires, the pulsing increases. It's a neat innovation that does solve the problem of never having walks. It does also give you less control over the pitches and may feel unfair at times. Sometimes you'll feel that you've pinpointed the circle exactly at it's smallest point, and the ball will still manage to find the edge of the circle that's outside the strike zone. However, it does increase the realism, that you may want to pinpoint your pitch exactly, but in reality it is hard even for the best pitchers to place the ball exactly where they want it to go. Overall, I think it's a good addition, but if you feel it's unfair, you can always switch back to metered pitching.

Other than that, most of the gameplay remains unchanged.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This marks my fourth year playing this game, and I can honestly say that, in my opinion, unlike Madden, the game gets significantly better each year. This is , to my mind, the best yet.

It's all been said, so I'll be brief and hopefully helpful. First of all the only thing that I do is franchise against the CPU so I know nothing of RTTS or online issues.

First--graphically this game is even more visually stunning than ever. The appearance of the players and the movements and mannerisms are startlingly lifelike. The game is not for the impatient to be sure, and if you thought it was slow before you will think it positively glacial this year. The pace is, like a real ball game, decidedly leisurely as we see cut-away shots to the crowd,the batter's in-between pitch ritual, the pitcher walking around the mound, mopping his brow, etc. These shots give the game a real TV feel, but does bring the game time to over an hour. To fans of the slow burn of a baseball game this will, I think, be truly appreciated as it adds a very realistic feel.

Let's talk about hitting.There are a number of folks here who will tell you that it is unrealistically difficult. It has been debated at length here, but I will tell you that I am a very average gamer, but I am a baseball fan, and hitting-while difficult-is not impossible and anyone who tells you they played 3 games and got 5 hits and couldn't score a run is not going about it the right way. There is a learning curve to be sure, but the game rewards patience and a little baseball savvy. I can tell you from hard won experience if you regularly chase pitches out of the zone and don't work the count it will eat your lunch. The game will not feel sorry for you or throw you a bone. It will get nastier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Again, #1 Baseball Game + slight improvements March 6, 2012
By OJ Silk
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Without a doubt, Sony's MLB The Show series is heads above the 2k series. Plain & simple, it's the best baseball game year in & year out (like NBA 2K vs. NBA Live, no contest). Therefore, The Show competes against itself and to their credit (unlike Madden), they continue to push the envelope and make changes that enhance gameplay & strategy. This year, The Show has made two significant changes in the two most important aspects -- pitching and hitting. In addition, ball physics are more real than ever before.

PRESENTATION (9/10): Excellent as usual. Easy to navigate menus with a nice baseball feel. Commentary is excellent & delivered by the 3-man team of Matt Vasgersian, Dave Campbell & Erik Karros. Despite some of the commentary being similar to '11, listening to them is like listening to a real game & unlike most sports games, it hardly gets repetitive and enhances the experience. There are tons of camera angles cutting between players, benches & the crowd. The stadiums' ambiance rounds out the complete baseball experience. Option to install game data on PS3 HDD is supposed to cut down on load times but not by much IMO.

GAMEPLAY (8.5/10): Players can use the newly featured swinging & pitching controls or if comfortable with the analog style, they can use that one. New are "Zone Analog Batting" where players have more control of their swings. This gives you more control as to where you are swinging. Pitching is now done via "Pulse Pitching", not the pitching meter. The mechanic works like this -- after selecting your pitch, a pulsing circle pops up (changing from bigger to smaller). The smaller the circle, the better control. Both hitting & pitching take a little getting used but rewarding in the end.
