well, i'll be a bit biased here because quite frankly i don't like the 2k sports baseball games all that much, but this game is just pure awesome. The graphics are superb, the gameplay is smooth, fun, and is a nice challenge for veterans of 'the show' series, while still making it easy to understand for new-comers of all sorts. the new road to the show mode improvements have proved to be fun, and a nice change of pace. You should definately pick this one up..great family game, easy trophies, and is a for sure keeper :) 10/10
I loved this game. I played a season with a friend and we were entertained from beginning to end. We were expecting to get bored with the game by mid season but it kept giving us little bells and whistles that kept us laughing. You really have to pay attention to the little things to notice how much detail went into the creation of this game. If your a die hard baseball fan like I am, you'll notice so much from how similar the characters look like the actual players, to the many things that can go on during a long season of 162 game season. Things like players going through hot streaks and slumps, many different ways characters react to in game situations, or even the way players field the ball and finish plays. Of course the game isn't perfect, so you will find faults in the game that will frustrate you from time to time like fielding errors that seem to happen right when the game is hanging in the balance, especially like balls pitched in the dirt that always seem to get away when there is a player on third. There are things that are cool like hitting the strike zone in the black and never knowing if it's going to be called a ball or strike. In reality, umpires always do this so you have to admit, this aspect is as real as it gets. Lastly, if you get tired of playing out a season, you can start up a road to the show season where you create your own character and play out his career from draft day, playing his way up the minors, and hopefully making the bigs and making him into a star. The only lasting thought I have is that the real star is the staff that made such a cool game that is worth every penny I invested into it.
Okay in road to the show , i made a guy his name was Semi Achima he broke babes record, he broke Ichiros and much much more.I am a baseball fan, player, an overall FANATIC. But when reading some of the reviews, uh you can change the base running in RTTS you (if you want to cheat) go on sliders on the option page in your sucky years and make the fielders make errors and stuff, you can also go to options and make you only bat. If your a pitcher you lower the batters contact, power etc. and make the pitch speed faster. Just saying all of Semi Achima's bars were up. So the trick to RTTS is patience, and a little bit of cheating.
P.S. IN one of Semi Achima's seasons he his 76 hr. He also played till he was 45 but c'mon he was amazing.
