About this product
|Players are invited to settle in and experience the variety of gameplay modes and online features found in MLB 07: The Show. Offline, single players may compete as a rookie in such modes as "Road to the Show," "Career," "Season," and "Exhibition." This 2007 version of the game also features an enhanced Pitch Command system and an adaptive Pitching Intelligence system that analyzes each pitch and provides feedback on how comfortable the pitcher is with each of his throws. |
The catcher can also provide their opinion on how the man on the mound should throw based on who is up to bat. Additionally, batters are given tips by a Swing Analysis tool that can compare the timing, location, and pitching area of the ball, and tell if the resulting hit is a home run or a strike. Online, gamers have the opportunity to create their own leagues with room for 30 teams.
By becoming a commissioner, players may create a season, a schedule of games, determine rewards for winning, and even assign penalties for not playing during a designated game. During the season, players may track each team's stats and leaderboards. An updated MLB sportscast ticker includes a full game menu and up-to-date statistics. An online player card is assigned to each gamer that houses all offline and online progress. Rex Hudler, Matt Vasgersian, and Dave Campbell return for another season to provide commentary on all offline games.

The BEST MLB game on PS3
if you have played the PS2 version of this game, even only for one inning, you will find this game to be easy. This game also has better graphics than what<br>all of us expected, in our opinion the graphics beat out MLB 2K7. Here are pros and cons:<br>Pros:<br>Easy Learning Curve<br>Keeps the old MLB the show series pitching/batting/fielding style.<br>Probably the most authentic gameplay/graphics/A.I. since MVP 05.<br>Great Soundtrack/Download of MLB Ticker<br>Great Graphics(Better than 2k7)<br>Great Gameplay/Camera Angles<br>Cons:<br>Slow Loading Times<br>Commentators are better on 2k7.<br>The score:<br>9.2/10<br>Great Game, Better Graphics. This game was definitely worth the 2 month delay and for all baseball/PS3 fans get this. Game has 4 levels.

Major League Blunder 07: What Show?
MLB 07 for the PS3 tries to carry over everything from the PS2 version of the game, such as the Pitch Command System, Road to the Show and umpire personalities. It also tries to add to the mix with some brand new animations, better textures for stadium and some new Sixaxis controls. However, there's a few significant problems that wind up arising with the title that keep it from being great: some gameplay mechanics that were better in the PS2 version of the game didn't make it over to the PS3, while others don't work as well as you'd expect them to. Plus, for a first party baseball title that's coming out as late as MLB 07 is this year, you'd expect, perhaps even demand something that stretched the capabilities of the system. As it currently stands, The Show feels like a ported PS2 game - a good PS2 game, but one nonetheless.<br><br>Players will still be able to use the catcher's calls as well as the confidence their hurler feels in a particular pitch to improve their success on the mound. However, they'll need to take into account the Umpire Personalities, which will call the strike zone tighter, looser or right down the middle<br><br>Batting is still solid, thanks to the included Swing Analysis tool that gives you an indication as to the timing and location of your swing as well as the location of the ball. On the other hand, queuing up bases with the new baserunning targeting system can still be a bit sticky. Fortunately, the new meter that was implemented for fielding to determine the strength of a throw has been tightened up significantlyRead full review

Love Career Mode
Love the "Road to the Show" career mode. Its the reason I decided to buy the game. Playing as a pitcher, some plays by the defense behind you are kinda bonehead plays. Ground balls that the shortstop should probably get sometimes don't and balls drop in the outfield that the players don't seem to try to get to. Otherwise a good game. Especially for the price these days.
