Details & Subtleties

MLB 09 The Show sinks it’s teeth into the details with realistic stadiums and signage, wear and tear on field, dusk to night lighting transitions, stadium Jumbotron animations and even crowd atmosphere – reaching up for foul balls out of play and home runs in addition to crowd rivalries and weather appropriate clothing.

Once you have your music on your PS3 hard drive, edit any of your tracks and assign a batter walk-up to all of your favorite players. Along with Custom Music, MLB 09 will also offer Custom Fan Yells and Chants. Record a yell, with your own voice, and assign it to play for the player and situation of your choice.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent game

Pros: RTTS is very fun it's awesome to control just one player. When the computer isn't cheap it is a very fun game.

Cons: When pitching in RTTS the cpu gets hits down the line a lot of the time. The cpu can be very cheap (3 home runs in a row to win a game -.-, yeah its happened) online play is plagued with lag it's almost impossible to hit consistently which is why I don't play online.

Other Thoughts: A very fun baseball sim and sometimes a fun game to play when the cpu doesn't cheat.

3 out of 5 eggsGood if you are die hard

Pros: Very realistic. Road to the Show mode is addicting.

Cons: Very challenging for the casual gamer. There are settings to make timing easier but it's still quite hard.

Other Thoughts: If you are going to play this game every day and like baseball, you will love it. If you want to be more casual with it, I would advise against it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood game

Pros: Fun game, most realistic baseball game I've played. Shipped quick as always.

Cons: Pretty tough to get used to batting, but that's just because I'm bad at it.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the buy, don't waste your time or money on the 2K9 game.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I love the Show. I played 08 nonstop last year and this years game looks much better and they improved on all the little things that annoyed me from last years game.

Cons: Check swing seems to be a lot harder. Also there is still no collision detection for the players so you will see guys run through teammates and other players.

Other Thoughts: Newegg delivered the game next day for free with UPS 3 Day Select.

5 out of 5 eggsbaseball for everyone

Pros: Best baseball game in these days out there. A lot of mode to play and training. You can upgrade the roster every time you connect to the online game room. player creator is awesome.

Cons: When you are playing online there is no way to find out the ping of the internet connection of the other player. Sometimes you lose games because lags of other players slow internet connection.

Other Thoughts: I am still thinking that sony is able to put in the game the WBC 09 rosters to play with National Teams too.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Game

Pros: Beautiful graphics at 1080p, fluid game play except on-line, updated baseball rosters.

Cons: RTTS base running controls are terrible compared to last years. On-line play is laggy as usual, voice chat doesn't work that well either. No fast play during RTTS, like last year.

Other Thoughts: I played 08 version more than any other game last year, I highly doubt I will play 09 that much, especially since they messed up RTTS base running controls. Still, it is the best baseball game out there, highly recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Baseball Game Period

Pros: Great graphics, sound, and crowd effects. New GM features are a plus. Slightly improved RTTS mode. An improved version of 08 IMO. Online leagues.

Cons: None, other than I stink. This is best baseball game series ever, and I have played ALL of them going back to Atari 2600 baseball.

Other Thoughts: Can be difficult. On all-star I keep getting owned by the CPU in exhibition, but that's because I can't hit yet. Once I get the timing down I will be fine. Not really a knock on the game itself so not taking any eggs away.

To the guy below who says the CPU keeps coming back on him, make sure the option "CPU Comeback Handicap" (or something like that) is turned off. That option makes the CPU harder to get out when you are ahead late, but easier to beat if you are losing late. I wish Madden let you turn this option off. LOL.

1 out of 5 eggsHORRIBLE!

Pros: None, took a fantastic product in The Show 08 and made it much much worse.

Cons: If you have a lead late in the game good luck keeping it. The bloop hits the computer gets, the errors you make are annoying as hell. I wish I could get my money back because this is a serious downgrade from last year. Save your cash, keep playing 08 because this game is horrible.
