MLB The Show 19 is the Best Sports Game


At base, MLB The Show is a really good sports sim. Unlike Madden or FIFA, it doesn't really have a mode that I would consider a "weak link." Even Franchise, which was almost untouched this year, is one of the best management sims around, sporting a huge number of ways to get through a 162-game season. One of the dilemmas I tend to have when reviewing sports games is how to score an annual release. Should the final score be based on the quality of the update, or the complete package? Maybe the update is weak, but the game is still really great. It can be difficult to determine how to weigh those two factors since different audiences care about different things.


Base running is probably the most notable problem area, particularly when you're playing in career mode. Trying to locate the ball is difficult and it led to me getting into bad situations where I was thrown out. Stealing is particularly difficult unless your coach calls for it, because you're never given the opportunity to find the pitch you want to run on; instead the game skips immediately to the next time a batter will hit the ball or strike out so you never have an opportunity to find a good pitch to run on.


For instance, I learned Babe Ruth started his career as a pitcher something I'd have probably never learned otherwise and I was granted an opportunity to play with him doing just that. There's a promise of more moments being added throughout the year, but although I enjoyed the mode tremendously, I'm not sure the limited gameplay and simplistic nature really offers anything beyond a quick distraction. Your reward for completing much of these two modes is merely Diamond Dynasty rewards. I've had a long-running distaste for Diamond Dynasty based on its mix of grinding and microtransactions-based design, but for those into fantasy baseball, there's a lot to love. There are a few dozen new legends, fairly fun objectives to unlock packs, an improved overall layout, and a well-implemented guide to help newcomers explore the systems behind the mode.


Along with that, always having to return to your club house after a series just to start another series sucks. It creates twice as many loading screens, which takes you out of your groove. The game promised a more important role of your agent. Which isn't really the case. Two years into the game and my agent had contacted me a handful of times, and never did anything. It improves in your free agent years, but it takes a long time to get there.


Blowing tickets on a gold or silver made little sense most of the time as tickets were too hard to accumulate. The range of choice was limited, meaning you'd see tonnes of the same player online, such as Carlos Beltran on MLB The Show 17. The ticket counter is gone for The Show 19.
