MLB The Show 20
Top Critic Average
MLB The Show 20 is a confident, sleek package of the best of baseball with systems that welcome newcomers and veterans alike. Crisp user interfaces, extensive customisation options and solid core mechanics make for a game that has even this novice keen for the places the series will go next.
MLB: The Show 20 is the most perfect iteration of the franchise to date.
In the end, The Show 20 is the best full-fledged baseball game on the market, not because of the radical improvements the team at Sony San Diego has made from last year's game but simply because it lacks comparable competition.
MLB The Show 20 provides a polished and generally refined experience that’s more about enhancing existing areas as opposed to altering anything too essential.
I now see why MLB: The Show is praised among baseball fans for being the best, because it is an extremely solid title. It offers a ton of content that ranges from more arcade modes to full on sims, and it has a decent way of bringing in newcomers.
With its in-depth customization, modes you can pour hours into, and online play with friends, MLB The Show 20 is a home run for fans.
To some “best sports game” may seem oxymoronic. In truth, within the first hour I had been about as impressed as this game could make me.
As said before, as a standalone experience, MLB The Show 20 is fine. However, as part of an annual series, it falls short from hitting a home run.
MLB The Show 2020 is the best baseball game on the market. It's not without its faults, but it more than makes up for them with the sheer amount of content.
