MLB 14: The Show
MLB 14: The Show is a must have for any baseball fan. Road to the Show alone is worth the purchase and the overall improvement on an already great foundation is what we want to see from sports games.
While have always enjoyed making my march to the majors, there is another mode that I try to jump into at least once a day and that is The Show Live. Baseball is a marathon of a season and each and every game, right down to the proper line-up and pitching match-up, is replicated daily and each game can be played in this mode. You can also use this screen to check real game times, live scores, and live situations. You can exit out of the mode and re-enter to refresh the games if you want to use it as a real time score tracker. Pretty nifty and the mode is available for the PS3, the PS Vita and the PS4.
MLB 14: The Show is a step forward for the franchise, but it's a smaller step than we've come to expect.
MLB 14: The Show continues to prove itself as the best baseball franchise around, despite its PlayStation 4 debut doing little to separate itself from its last generation brethren.
MLB 14: The Show has made a welcome arrival on the PlayStation 4, and will only get better from here. Can you imagine the future possibilities?
If you waited to buy a next-gen version of "The Show," you're in luck. The PS4 version isn't worse than the PS3/Vita version, but it isn't any better either. All of its visual sheen brings new problems, but it's still a big league sports sim.
"The setup of the menus has been drastically redesigned, and although it took some getting used to at first, it's actually a much more user-friendly design over all."
MLB 14 The Show may not be a game changer, but it doesn't need to be. It is a great game with enough new features and ideas that it manages to stay fresh despite its problems, and fans of baseball sims will be hard-pressed to find better.
MLB 14: The Show was a great game a month ago when it came out on PlayStation 3, and it remains so on PlayStation 4. MLB 14 on PS4 is a rare year one sports game on a new console that is both significantly better looking and feature complete with the last generation version.
The definitive version of the definitive baseball game, MLB 14: The Show on PS4 is the best reason to own the new console.
