I'm actually going to rate this game higher than I think I should simply because it is a Baseball game and it has a couple of fun things to do....But it's a Baseball game....sloooooow. Kept my attention for about a full hour. Most of that was just setting up my profile. The other 15 was playing....bored ta death really.
This is truly baseball simulation at it's finest!!! Excellent animation; gameplay is on point and the visuals are very good; except for a few short commings.2K baseball has a slight advantage, but that's it!!! However the faces are more accurate on The Show. Hopefully their second go around on the Next Gen scene will result in a 100% realistic visual experience.
The gameplay is almost flawless from the player specific animations to the fielding the pitching motions. The pitching and hitting systems are easy to pick up and add to the gameplay experience. Crowd reactions are great and the stadiums are exact beautiful replicas.
MLB 07 The Show is the Gold Standard in Next Gen baseball simulation!!
