    So I pulled an all-nighter and 10 hours in, I am impressed. I've played most game modes, and veterans of the series :o)

    I switched from the 2k series to the Show back in 09. I have loved baseball games since the triple play series and Ken Griffey Baseball, and the Show has become my favorite baseball series. Last year ...

    A great part of past SHOW games 4me was the PITCHING METER & ONLINE PLAY. This PULSE PITCH garbage ruined this game.

    I used to be a SHOW pheen. Every year for the last 3 years I've gotten this game and all the enhancements don't matter one lick because you can't change the default pitching controls in Online play. ...

    Small changes go along way!

    I have been playing the Show since it was first released and I must say every year I'm surprised at how much time and attention goes into the smallest details. The most dramatic upgrade this year is t...

    Why this years game deserves a 9.0

    Rated on March 11, 2012 by Just2Solid

    Ok so let me first start by saying I've never been a major fan of baseball games because I always seemed to find them slow and boring however this year I decided to buy the show 12 and I'm glad I did....

    Your dream game if you love pitcher's duels. Be sure you own an extra controller, because you're sure to break one.

    Rated on March 13, 2012 by BrianB0422

    What to say? It's frustrating. So insanely frustrating. Here goes: *Graphics - 6/10 The on-field / in-game graphics aren't anything to get excited about. The grass looks like a green mat from ...

    In past years you could hit. The last 2 years they try to get cute with hiting and it makes the game suffer.

    You shoulden't need 3 cups of coffey to hit a fast ball fare. They have the timing way Jacked up. I could hit major league pitching in real life better than this game. I batted 320. online in mlb10 on...

    I love baseball and when it comes to MLB presentation this game delivers, BUT as for actual gameplay............

    First off this game looks great, being a Phillies fan I'm pleased to see that Doc Halladay looks like Doc Halladay, and Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels and so forth. I dont notice any generic faces for players...

    While it's still the most realistic MLB game out there, the game itself can be very frustrating to play.

    Rated on May 23, 2012 by MaddenBowler10

    I'll try to keep this short and to the point. This game is without a doubt the best MLB game out there for you to play. The graphics are still phenomenal, if not the same as last year's game. Controls...

    Great presentation keeps you coming back while you catch up with the game play.

    Rated on July 31, 2012 by NightRider17

    MLB 12: The show is actually a pretty fun game. The game play as a whole is pretty good. But its steep learning curve can leave a little bit to desire. I'll admit I am new to the series. But i found...
