Sony's MLB 08: The Show delivers the closest experience to playing in the big leagues short of actually trying to make it big in the Majors. Take your created athlete to the baseball team of your choice in this first person baseball simulation. He starts with modest stats, but you can build his abilities throughout the pre-season, regular season and into the post-season. Control your athlete during his at-bats where Progressive Batting Performance rewards you for superior hitting and penalize you for batting slumps. Meet your manager's expectations and you'll earn contract bonuses. Also new are umpires with differing personalities – and their own strike zones. Catchers will call pitches and his setup will act to guide where to throw the pitch.

Save replays of your performances and build your own highlight reels to share with others. In-game pitcher and batter analysis gives real-time stats and lets you keep track of pitches thrown. Different pitch grips and arm angles are accurately rendered allowing pitchers to throw 18 different types of pitches. The rest of the game is as thoroughly well rendered, with crowd interaction modeled in for the first time. Fans will reach for foul balls or do the wave. Vendors move through the crowd which will give standing ovations for superior performances.

Save the game in mid-inning and never have to restart from scratch. Build your own customized soundtrack with My MLB Music – just import your favorite tunes and add them to the jukebox. "SportsConnect Online User Tracking" (SCOUT) effortlessly lets you find an online opponent with the same gameplay settings. You can also receive live MLB scores broadcast to you whenever you're online with the MLB Live Ticker.

Features
Already widely considered the most authentic baseball game available, MLB 08 The Show is set to provide fans with the most realistic baseball experience to date with innovations such as a more immersive Road to The Show mode, enabling gamers to play both offense and defense from the created player’s perspective.

Providing players with some additional performance incentives, the MLB franchise introduces the new Progressive Batting Performance feature, which will both reward players for superior performance and penalize them for hitting slumps. Specific to each individual batter, players will be rewarded with slight contact bonuses, or punished with slight decreases in contact, based on how that batter that performs beyond his "natural ability" while under user control.

Adding to the online feature set, which includes customizable Online League Play with up to 30 teams, scrolling MLB Score Ticker and more, MLB 08 The Show introduces SCOUT (SportsConnect Online User Tracking), which allows gamers to set and store their game preferences on the MLB server, and enables the system to look for a Quick Match with opponents that fits similar competitive criteria.

4 out of 5 eggsFun Game

Pros: Road to the show is the best part of the game. I enjoy playing the guy I created, trying to get him to the majors. The games go quick because you only play when your guy is batting or a ball is hit to him.

Cons: No home run derby. That kind of ticked me off. Wanted a cool 2 person game for when people lost at poker, so they had something to do afterwards. Commentary gets old after awhile.

Other Thoughts: Graphics are sweet!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: the animations and graphics are great, a very smooth playing game. the road to it has many options of play, the controls for the most part are easy to learn, except for baserunning. it seems very realistic compared to it's counterpart mlb 2k8 inwhich you can hit a homerun almost every at bat. overall it is a good baseball with just a few minors and misses.

Cons: the road to the show career is a great idea but the whole skipping to your at bat and defensive plays make it kinda like your not really playing a game. especially when your fast forwarded to defense, the ball it usually always hit to you or your involved making it seem all scripted and not just instant gameplay. the strike calls in the game are also a bit frustrating to deal with. the mvp baseball series controls were the best this follows close behind except for the baserunning. i just cant understand how to control a single runner when theres multiple runners on

Cons: Still the same commentaters from the beginning. They added some new sayings but still the same comments over and over again from the psp game from like 3 years ago and mlb 07, if not longer. would have expected all new stuff but no. very disappointed by that

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!!

Pros: Graphics are outstanding, gameplay is seamless-except online, which has a lot of problems. You can make a character to look like yourself and play through the minors in the Road to the Show. It is very challenging and hard to hit at first, but after a little practice you get the hang of it. You probably have fractions of a second to decide on a pitch, same way it is in the pros I guess.

Cons: Online play can be horrible due to lag, you have to adjust for it. There is no communication device available, it would be nice to talk with the person you are playing with. You can use a keyboard, but I found no response from anyone with this method, so I gave up on it.

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend it, esp. over 2k series.
