MLB '06 The Show is here and damn is it good. Last year I was a huge fan of EA's MVP Baseball. Overall it was a fantastic game of baseball, I mean everything about it was flawless. I was skeptical when my choices had been slimmed down to either the show or 2k6. I had waited for 2k6's release date and when the reviews came out I was furious. I can't believe I waisted my time waiting for a crappy baseball game. I decided to get the show, and it turns out the true baseball game I should've gone had been on sale for the extra month I waited. Graphics wise, it's pretty good. I've been playing the 360 a lot so it's not like startling or anything. I did notice that some of the faces were astoundingly close to the real life counter parts (Giambi, A rod). The commentary in this game is good but nothing to scream joyfully about. Where I think this game scores a ten is the gameplay. Everything is smooth and overall gives for a fun long lasting game of baseball. Even if you don't have online there's the career mode and the franchise which can lost quite sometime. The online is excellent except that a lot of people quit midway through the game if they're getting pounded. They need to work on a few glitches and change the way you find games online because some people leave their playstations idle, so you're requesting a game and don't recieve any response. All in all this is the best baseball game I've played (yes better than mvp). I really hope 2k sports gets their act together because I really would much rather play baseball on the 360 than the ps2.
Most people are always so focused on the pissing contest between 2K Sports and Electronic Arts that Sony's MLB franchise sneaks under the radar, yet it's one of the best baseball series ever made and a must buy for anyon... Read Full Review
Of course everyone wants to compare The Show to the MVP season since we have no MVP this year. It's easy to do but not fair. Anyway... First off, the presentation of The Show is excellent! Each game begins with a M... Read Full Review
