MLB The Show 17 (PS4)

Postby VideoGameCritic » June 12th, 2017, 8:34 pm

My friend Kevin and I tried this tonight. First we tried the normal mode and it was okay. The controls are overly complex so it took us a while to get the hang of them. Once we did the game was okay. Kevin remarked that the graphics were not as impressive as he was expecting.

Then we tried the Retro mode. Love it. It's like Sports Talk Baseball for the Genesis, only with high definition graphics! Easy to play and a lot of fun, you wonder why they made the controls so complicated to begin with.

I'm having a lot of fun, but what a sloppy game this is! Glitches, and graphical "blips". This game needs some competition.

Thanks for the spoilers! I was playing the last game of the season with a one game lead over the Cardinals, and Harold Reynolds mentioned something about how I had won the division, despite all games taking place at the same time on the final day of the season. So he shouldn't have known that yet. I hate how they also post the division standings that give away the result of a game that's on later. For example, say that I trail by 2 games going in, it'll show that I trail now by 2.5 games, implying that the team I trail to will win later on.

Yeah, they need to cut that out! It really ruins it for me. You play the whole season, then they ruin the good part for you.
