Remember when Super Bases Loaded 3 was considered state of the art? The fun that could be had with such a basic sports simulator boggles the mind when you see the features that "The Show" has thrown at us over the last several years.
The Show has and still remains to be the undisputed king of the baseball game industry. The 2k franchise has not reached the unmatched gameplay, realism and overall value that is garnered when purchasing a version of "The Show." As an avid fan, I was expecting great things from the 2010 version, but the moment I inserted the disc, my hopes were dashed.
Don't get me wrong, it is still a GREAT game, but the lack of improvements over the previous year's version, has left me wondering, "Why did I buy this game?" Sure the roster updates are great, but is it worth 60 bucks?
Before you purchase this game, realize that you're paying that amount of money for the ability to call the game from a catcher's perspective in the famed "Road to the Show," but that is one of the very few improvements. The graphics have been slightly improved, but overall, you're stuck with the 2009 version of the game.
The PMB's verdict? 7.0 out of 10.0
