this was a good game. The only thing i wish i would have known is that the online play would lag. It lagged badly even though i had a 100% cable modem connection. I found that this was because i was playing on a standard definition tv but when i switched tvs to a 720p setting the lag was gone. Excellent game but if you dont have high def. forget about online play.

I thought I had finally found a good baseball game for next gen consoles. In fairness the gameplay on this game is very good...way better than 2k. However I ran into some programming in the Road to the show mode that really upset me. I recommend season mode or two player as Road to the show mode let me down immensely.
Sony for future reference when a player hits .360 (led the league) 21 homers 95 rbi was leading ROY and gold glove condidate, and led his team to a division title he is not going to be sent back to the minor leagues for absolutely no apparent reason the last day of the regular season "as my wake up call". I spent a good deal of time playing this mode as I found it new and very fun until this happened.
This game is actually pretty fun but when you put that much time getting to the majors and then to get sent back down I cant compel myself to play it any longer I retired and retired this game.
Sorry Sony that was a major programming snafu that needs to be fixed. I thought you had made a near perfect baseball game but alas I think it may never happen.

With all the improvements they've made this year its kind of hard to not pick this game as the number 1 baseball game on the market. If you own a ps3 and love baseball you owe it to yourself to pick this title up over the wannabe baseball game called mlb 2k8.
