The lights are on
Got this game last night at the Battlefield midnight launch and have not put the controller down since. This is the definiton of a true sports game. EA should take note because Madden(Yes I am comparing Madden to The Show cause quite frankly all other baseball games suck!)cannot touch MLB 10 The Show in terms of gameplay and more importantly just plain FUN!
Baseball games are usually boring, for me...but after reading this i might pick this up....hope its as good a simulation as Fight Night Round 4 is. That game is the best in terms of getting a sport down pack to the tee. lets see..........

I actually had it on auto sim while I was busy writing the review, so technically no. haha
Fight Night Round 4 was outstanding but MLB 10 the show is as real as it gets my friend. Plus they have improved the Online Season League aspect tremendously over the last game.
Bad Company 2 had a midnight release?!?! ***, I had to wait till 11 in the morning to get it :P. THe baseball game is great too, picked it up along with BBC2.
whats the difference between '10 and '09? I don't want to spend $60 on the new version when there isn't a whole lot of difference.
The improvements are noticabale from the moment you start the game. The animations are much more realistic and there is almost no lag from the moment you press a button for a specific action. The graphics have been improved as well, if you have an HD tv this game looks so real you can fool your friends/family into thinking your watching a real baseball game. Even the fans interact when there is a ball hit into the stands or down the foul line, you could see individual fans lunging for the ball. The huge change this year is the addition of all player stats for your full 40-man roster. You will get access to the full “Around the League” screens, including Playoff Brackets, Standings, Statistics, Team Rankings, League Leaders and Awards. Just to relay the amount of data available in Online Leagues, we are potentially talking about 30 teams, with 40 players, each with 70+ stats!
Here are some of the other new features:
HR Derby – The Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star Futures Game are now available during the All-Star break in our season modes and as a stand-alone experience.
Catcher Calling the Game – Call pitches and play as the field general, just like Joe Mauer.
Online Gameplay Improved – This year the online gameplay experience has been vastly improved and will detect and respond better to adverse network conditions along with reduced bandwidth to help the speed and flow of online gameplay.
User Controlled Pick-Offs – Surprise a base runner with a quick move or lull him to sleep with our new pick-off mechanism.
Custom Music, Fan Yells, and Chants – Assign music or a recording to an entire team, edit tracks to assign batter walk-up music, or record your own voice and assign it to play for the team or player during the situation of your choice.
Movie Maker – Select up to ten replays to add to a single movie and do all the editing for your own highlight reel.
There are a few new additions and changes I wanted to rattle off for online leagues:
