One Paragraph Review: MLB 09 The Show

by Mitchell Dyer

Baseball 09 The Show
Some folks think that baseball is so slowly paced that you could host a board meeting in center field. But Sony’s MLB The Show captures the satisfaction of cranking a grand-slam over the fence, the intensity of swiftly stealing bases, and the excitement of making a diving catch for the game-winning out. Whether you want to build a superstar player in the Road to the Show mode, take your favorite team through the World Series, or test your skills against online opponents, The Show offers plenty of gratifying game modes. It’s simple enough to embrace the unfamiliar audience with basic batting/pitching/fielding, yet still offers serious depth for baseball-nuts.
