MLB The Show 20 marks another solid entry for the series. New additions to the fielding game are welcome and fans of the sport will find a wealth of systems and modes to enjoy. It may be a bit overwhelming for newcomers, but offers a great range of tutorials to get payers up to speed. There's a lot of game here, provided you enjoy the sport. While it wont make you a fan if you weren't already, it's still the best rendition of the sport you can enjoy from the comfort of the couch.
MLB The Show 20 stands as the celebration the Show deserved at a time when it could see a larger audience than years past. If you don’t feel the need to slay demons or manage a virtual island, perhaps you can step into the batter’s box and take a swing at something new. MLB The Show 20 is a damn good video game.
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.
One of PlayStation's finest franchises continues to age like a fine wine improving incrementally with each passing year. San Diego Studios manages to improve an already stellar game with enough tweaks and improvements to keep the franchise from stagnating, but players of last year's outing may still have a difficult time justifying purchasing MLB The Show 20.
MLB The Show 20 is another home run thanks to its refined gameplay and many modes.
MLB The Show 20 is the definitive version of Sony San Diego's baseball simulation on the PS4, but long-time fans may feel that this franchise is just starting to show signs of fatigue. The gameplay refinements are welcome, and this is the biggest instalment thus far, but the shift to next-gen will be welcome as the developer seeks to revolutionise the best sports game on the market by far.
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.
All in all, MLB The Show 20 remains perhaps the deepest sports title on modern consoles. There's so much to do, it's the rare game that can keep a sports fan occupied for ¾ of a year, easily. It's not a vast improvement from the prior year's offering, but possesses enough upgrades to justify the purchase leap.
