Every year MLB The Show impresses me more and more. This year is no different. It delivers excellent game play, excellent graphics, and the addition of the PS Move to RTTS as well as others is just the icing on the cake. I have never seen so much detail put into a sports game in my life. I wish that I had a 3D tv just to see what that would be like. I play a lot of sports games and I don't like a lot of them. But this title is one of two games on Gamefly that I would be proud to buy. With new additions like commentators and the move as I previously mentioned, I spend almost four hours a day playing this masterpiece. I think that I am still discovering new features in this game. The only problem I have with this game is nothing too important, just that it always asks you if you would like to update the roster every week. As well as always having the same intro unlike 2010 and other MLB The Show titles. Other then these small nitpicks I think that this is the best sports game out there and you all should get your hands on it.

This game, overall, is still the best sports game you can get for your money. The graphics are great and it stays true to the game. The umpires strike zone will actually dance around and they can blow calls on the bases. I think that the hitting style couldn't be much better and the pitching is still perfect. ]
The improvements could go with the announcers and showing a little bit more passion in some areas. I was playing the last game in the season and if I won, I was in the playoffs. The feeling in the stadium was flat. It was like it was just as important as the game I played in July. I think next year, they should work on that aspect. By showing the high steaks in elimination games in the playoffs or the pressure a pitcher could be facing going into the last inning of a perfect game bid would make the game a perfect 10.
--Sony, just put in a little more enthusiasm into those aspects.
