4.0 out of 5 stars great baseball simulation..but online is not so good right now, March 6, 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: MLB 12 The Show - PlayStation Vita (Video Game)
this review is just for the vita and not the ps3

I went to gamestop to pick up my copy of ps3 the show for the vita, and i am really happy with it. It is everything you expect from the show plus more. they have everything from making the game so easy to making it so hard. everyone who is a fan of baseball should pick this game up. the only complaint i have is my online pass didnt work, but that does not reflect my game review because it isnt part of the game. the gameplay is so smooth and you feel a sence of accomplishment when you blast a home-run. they brought back where you can choose exactly where you swing and that is what i am talking about. This game feels just as smooth as when i played mlb 08 and mlb 11 on the ps3. playing on the vita doesnt take nothing away from the experience.

My online pass worked later that night when i got the game. i guesss they were having problems.

I played a couple games online and the experience was fun, but also frustrating. It seems like a lot of people either disconnect or quit once you get the lead. I have played 3 full games and my record is 5-4. people are getting losses when they havnt even played. The timing for hitting is rediculous online. It seems like your always either late or early. If you hit a hard ground ball to right field it is so easy to get thrown out at first. sometimes the catcher will get stuck on a 3rd strike pass ball or a steel and who ever is running can run the bases and get a free run. If you really care about your record or play seriously then i suggest you wait for a patch to jump online. If you play for fun like me and could care less about your record, you can still have fun playing online right now.

i chaned it to 4 stars overall because of all the problems online. if you buying this to play mainly online i suggest you wait to pick it up.

online 3 stars
offline 5 stars. If you buying this game to play mainly offline i suggest you pick it up right now
