4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the PSP. Jan. 6 2010

The game is pretty good on the PSP, graphics are well done, and the play by play commentary is fantastic. The controls are a bit difficult at first, but once you figure them out it's pretty good!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very very difficult for a beginner June 25 2009
Format:Video Game
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first baseball game ever for me.

Good scores from reviewers, so I bought it.

First of all, this game is probably the most tough game I have played so far in a "rookie" mode. Don't think to pitch and bat and score in this mode. I had to read the manual very well to learn the commands and then played a lot of hours before I can win a game. In a "normal" rookie mode, you usually do almost what you want and win; forget it with MLB 09; you have to know what is going on!

Another weird thing I found annoying is that I played my first games in the exhibition mode and have choosed the catcher view. When I started the "Road to the show", the only view available was the pitcher view. The problem is that the buttons are inversed with this view. So you practiced hours your buttons, then you found yourself pitching at the 3rd base instead of the 1st...

That's all for the negative points. The rest of the game deserve 5 stars, I found it addictive even if it has a couple of things that put my nerves on!

I'm happy having got this game, but I found myself needing patience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game for the avid baseball fan. April 3 2009
By G. Bunting - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After having played EA Sports baseball games for a long time, I was initially disappointed when I heard they do longer had a MLB license. I'm not anymore! MLB The Show 09 is a great game. It is by far the most realistic, in depth game I've ever played. In fact, in terms of realism, this is the closest thing to a perfect sports game I've ever played. The casual fan who isn't up to speed on all of the MLB rules regarding player transactions can have the computer completely manage the roster, finances, etc., but the avid fan has to pay close attention to the off season schedule to make sure contracts are renewed, salary arbitration is offered, etc. There is even a Rule 5 draft, and just like in real life, your team loses a draft pick if you sign an A or B free agent. It's a great game. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than the '07 version March 7 2009
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm not sure how different this is from the '08 edition, but it's much improved from 2007. The new features are really nice and add an element of realism to the franchise mode. They've also greatly improved the Road to the Show mode and fixed a few of those annoying control issues of previous editions.

Cool game and I'd highly recommend it to any PS2 holdovers who love baseball.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick to '08 May 13 2009
By TW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I was skeptical about this game. I really enjoyed '07 and '08, but like most, thought they were both too easy. As soon as I heard that Sony would be making this year's version harder, I started to worry.

Video game producers have long used everything from cheap kills to "glitches" to make games appear to be harder or more difficult than they are. That is sort of what they've done with the PS2 '09 version. The first three ABs that I had all resulted in line drives caught by the second baseman in shallow CF. The 2B will dive from his regular spot and land in the outfield to catch a bullet line-drive? Maz couldn't even do that.

In past versions, I have always used the slider to slide the pitch speed up since the default doesn't throw very hard. On this one, it still doesn't throw hard enough but it throws 12 to 6 curves that drop from a 6'2" hitter's head to the dirt. You have sliders that are acting like screwballs at the end of the pitch. Curves away, only to slam on the brakes and catch the corner with a slight curve back towards the plate.

I played a total of 6 games before putting it back in the box and bringing MLB 08 The Show back out. I'm all for a game with a challenge and baseball is a sport that when hitting, you're going to get out more times than not, but the difficulty seems to have supernatural powers and while the challenge adds replay value, it won't matter since the realism is lost when you see players diving 10-15 feet to catch a ball.

My main reason for posting this isn't to bash the game. MLB The Show is by far my favorite baseball series since the old Sega World Series Baseball games, so I can recommend 08, adjust the rosters accordingly, bump the sliders up to make it a bit tougher and you have the game, 09 should have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars a little disappointed March 8 2009
By Reginald A. Good - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is my 4th installment of mlb the show. I started in 06. The game has come a long way, but i was a little disappointed with this version.

First, the new running system is terrible. More often times than not my guy stops 2 step from the bag. Then i start running back to the previous base. I hate this running system. It nearly ruins the game. As it is I play with the auto run on. It takes away from game play but otherwise it is unplayable.

Second, it is really hard to track the ball off the bat. My 2nd baseman view is so bad that most of the time i cant tell where the ball went till it passes me.

third, the system is a bit hinky when fielding. Turning a double play is nearly impossible. My dude never makes it to the bag before the ss is tossing me the ball this screws up the entire thing.

fourth, outfielders cover the entire outfield. I hit gap shots to the fence and they manage to run it down before it lands. Extra base hits are few and far between. They usually only occur if the outfielder misses the ball.

Over all the game is much like earlier versions, just harder to play, and thus not as much fun as earlier versions.
