MLB 13 The Show allows you to experience the MLB like never before. Its jaw-dropping realism doesn't just capture every detail and mechanic of the sport, it captures the raw emotion of Major League Baseball.

And The Show delivers it with such realism, it's like it really happened. Available for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) systems, MLB 13 The Show is due to arrive in stores on March 5, 2013.

After playing for about 2-3 hours, here are my impressions thus far comparing MLB '13 and MLB '12 vita versions:

I played a game in Playoff, Season, and Franchise mode. I'll try to provide as much detail as possible.

If you are new to the Show or had difficulties with understanding the mechanics of previous games, I would recommend getting this one as it is more beginner friendly with a beginner mode which helps you understand the basics.

Graphics-wise, MLB '13 is probably slightly better than MLB '12, but not by much. There is not a considerable difference. However, faces seemed a bit more detailed and stadium had a little bit more detail when comparing both versions. With that said, the game looks smoother than MLB '12 (i.e. less jaggies).

MLB '13 has included short cutscenes (animations) for home runs, strikeouts, fielded plays, and so forth. So if you were dissappointed in MLB 12 lacking in cutscenes, you'll be happy with this version.

In Mlb '13 they added more camera views, so you have more options to choose from when pitching, hitting, and fielding.

They also included a pressure-sensitive option for throwing on a fielded play. When you field a ball, a guage shows up which will show how much strength you will add to your throw depending on how long you hold the button. Then when you release, you have to press again to throw the ball. So throwing errors will be based on your gauge meter, and not arbitrarly like in MLB '12.

The one thing I am dissapointed in this game, which I thought was going to be improved in MLB '13 (vita), is the commentary. The commentary seemed to have digressed in this installment.

First off, I must confess to you all that my experience with the MLB The Show franchise is very limited. I have always stayed away from sports video games because I suck at them. I'm awful. Playing against me online is a sure win for you. I can play the game in real life but not in the virtual world. Until now!

I picked up the game (PS Vita) first thing this morning and have been on it non-stop for the last 3.5 hours. The addition of the beginner mode I found very helpful. A few weeks ago I picked up a used copy of MLB 12 for $5 and had been trying to figure it out. MLB 12 was great but I had such a difficult time figuring out pitching and hitting that I almost gave up on the game. I did enjoy it enough however to warrant trying MLB 13. Maybe the limited skills that I acquired on MLB 12 are making 13 that much easier or it's the beginner mode that is making the game so much more enjoyable, I don't know nor do I care. Whatever the case I am already enjoying this game. I've started on the RTTS and Franchise modes both of which have seen numerous improvements over 12. There is so much customization it's almost overwhelming - in a good way. Obviously there is quite a lot that I haven't seen and perhaps in a few more weeks of playing my thoughts will change but right now I am enjoying it far more than I enjoyed 12.

This being the second release of MLB The Show on the Vita the game has shown some performance improvements in both graphics and gameplay. The Vita has been out for over a year now and I think developers have worked out the issues and figured out how to create a great gaming experience.

When I have played more of the game I will update my review but so far it's all systems go.

I've had the game now for a week or so and thought I'd give my thoughts.

I had MLB 12 The Show and tried to play through seasons and just found it amazingly boring and uninteresting -- I stopped playing it after a week and never picked it up again.

So then when I heard MLB 13 was coming out I didn't even pay attention at first but ended up reading some reviews and figured I'd give it a shot - worse case I could sell it used since I actually bought the physical copy.

Rather than bore myself to death again playing the season mode I jumped right into The Road to the Show -- this completely sells the game for me. The games are quick and you actually feel like you're progressing and getting better. I love this part of the game and haven't even bothered with anything else yet. Just based on this part of the game alone I'll give it 4 out of 5 stars.

The graphics are alright, for a showcase game I don't find them particularly good but for an average game they'd be fine. The lighting system is wacky at times and dims the game too much when batting to compensate for park lighting at sunset- when you play a day game this isn't an issue.

Music and play by play bore me so I just use headphones and listen to something else.

Also as a bonus the game has not crashed on me yet - compared to Madden on the Vita which has crashed, swear I'm telling the truth, probably close to 20 times since last August.

There are several great additions to MLB 13 The Show including the new Postseason Mode.

From the 2012 version, there is not a huge leap in the animation, the realism was already top-notch and most modes remain the same.Those who already own MLB 12: The Show will be looking for a reason to buy the latest version besides just updated rosters. Fortunately, the postseason mode provides just that.

Some people are likely not going through an entire season while playing every game. In all likelihood, you are simulating at least some of your games and hoping you are a good enough general manager to get your team into the playoffs.

Even the Road to the Show mode feels a little too drawn out for an average person to keep interest. However, the Postseason brings the shortened time frame to those who love baseball. With this feature, you can customize the 10 teams that will be involved in the playoffs. You can now spend their time playing fewer games with a heightened intensity. While many of the features from franchise mode do not carry over, it still has the feel of your own team competing for a World Series.

Additionally, the mode features a different presentation from the regular season. The crowd is louder, the broadcast is more intense and even the announcers seem to be involved in the action. It truly captures the essence of October baseball and puts it into a video game.

Sports video games often have to find a perfect mixture of fun gameplay and a realistic experience. The overall game does a decent job of this, but the postseason mode makes it even better.

MLB 13: The Show is another winner in a series that's easily the best baseball sim out at the moment.
