I'll keep this short and sweet.
This game is much better than MLB 2K whatever year they make. So if you have a sony system and a xbox, definitely go with this game.
There are no real differences in this game over last years, at least in the road to the show. They still make you do ridiculous goals such as working on arm accuracy as a pitcher to get promoted. The graphics aren't anything spectacular but it is the psp so don't expect anything great (except in GoW.. that game was amazing).
Other than that it is exactly what you should expect out of this game. They added new bells and whistles but I play the game soley for the Road to the Show mode, and in the regards it is a solid game for the handheld.
Ok i thought it was a pretty good game but as u would suspect there are a couple of flaws, one is in online mode if one of you have anything less of a perfect connection it is VERY sloppy i mean the bat would shatter before the person swung on a replay and the ball would be in the catchers glove and then scooting by the infielders. Horrible. Batting not so great either online. as i said bad connection you have to swing at a weird time and if your like me and u like going between online and road to show or whatever its really hard to get used to the hitting. another thing is no matter what if the ball is hit to the wall and it stops at the wall then you have to stop running then your outfielder get completely set like he ran into the wall then throws. its annoying. the graphics are ok. the ppl in the stands aren't to good but who cares the players are average. but other than those small flaws then its a GREAT. the game is just FUN. i don't have a ps3 but i would get it for the ps3 before the psp. but if you don't have a ps3 or you are looking for a fun game on the road, GET THIS GAME!!!!!!
This game is amazing i cant put it down if you are a huge or just a little bit sports gamer with a love for baseball mlb 09 The Show Has every thing from great throws and great catches and even but very rarley balks and you can rob Homeruns this is one of my all time favorite
