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. I'm stuck using that horrible PULSE garbage. I loved the pitching in previous versions of the Show. The meter was the perfect solution to realistic pitching. If u learned how to pitch slightly before or after the yellow line u could make your pitch slightly more left or right of your target. If u threw it earlier u could change speeds of ur fastball or changeup...Changing speeds and ultimate control was made possible with the METER. Now most pitches are at the same speed and even control pitchers are hard to control. I played online and threw 26 str8 foul ball pitches with C.C. pitching to adrian BELTRE...YEAH RIGHT!!!!!! The game forces your to throw pitches down the middle. Why force people to play with that feature if they don't want to in Online play??? It makes no sense at all to allow it in franchise mode and not in online play....STUPID STUPID STUPID...Why make the people who were the games biggest fans and best players frustrated because our 96 stamina pitchers get almost tanked by the 6th inning. And if there's a lag in your game u could forget hitting. If u love franchise mode or playing at home with friends this game might be cool for you. Personally Franchise mode has been wack forever...the longer you play the worst the league becomes and the less competition there is. In my opinion this game's fun was online and now pitching is a mockery. Bought 2 days ago and will be trading it in.
id give it 7.5 too just for the dumb idea of pulse pitching
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 was the first year I... Read Full Review
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 are solid, tight an... Read Full Review
