MLB The Show 22


Franchise mode showcases some changes in MLB The Show 22 that should help ensure a higher level of realism when it comes to front office moves and monetary concerns, but there are no splashy new features and its entire look could use a makeover. While the custom leagues mode gives you the opportunity to play in an online league against friends, its limitations serve as a reminder that the series needs to bring back a real online franchise.




MLB The Show 22



Just like you're absolutely wrong when you say that 900p/30fps is acceptable in 2022. It just isn't. It wasn't on the PS4 and Xbox One 3-4 years ago, it's not acceptable now. To say it is just shows your bias. The Switch's performance hasn't been acceptable IN YEARS. (LOL 372p for Xenoblade...)


MLB The Show 22 still looks nice, but it is beginning to show its age. Fresh scans have been created for the bigger named players, and they look remarkably close to their real-life counterparts. However, there is some clunkiness to the animations and the ballparks could use some sprucing up. Even though I was playing on the PlayStation 5, I'm going to chalk these visual issues up to the title still being cross-gen. The commentary team also got a shake-up this year, but that's not necessarily a good thing. New duo Joe Sciambi and Chris Singleton have potential, but a glut of repeated dialogue and anecdotes may drive you to switching off commentary entirely. There are also moments where what the duo says doesn't match what is going on, specifically in regard to things such as how many balls and strikes there are or whether there was one or two outs.


As for the action on the field, MLB The Show 22 is once again a showpiece of iteration. Building upon an already great foundation, Sony continues to find ways to tighten up the play, add more realism, and reduce repeated moments. Variety is showcased within the the new fielding animations for all types of hits, the ways players charge balls, and new home run animations. It's also easier to read pitch release points, and the ball has a bit more weight to it, meaning you'll see more realistic ground ball hops and flight trajectories right off of the bat.


MLB The Show 22 is one of the weirder entries in the series over the course of the past decade. On one hand, I've found myself just as engaged as ever with the core gameplay of MLB The Show 22 and fully expect to continue playing it frequently over the course of this season. On the other hand, this is likely the most underwhelming jump between MLB The Show installments that I can remember as nothing much of note has really been added or altered this year. This lack of flashy new content doesn't make MLB The Show 22 worse by any means, but it does show that this series is somewhat struggling to evolve beyond what it has become.


After the monologue the game cuts to a black screen with the title on screen, effectively welcoming players back to the show. Here is where my journey began exploring and enjoying and playing with all of the features accessible. First thing that came across was building my own player before I got further into more of the game. With that of course I had to build a power player and with that it was off to the races with hours and hours of play.


The main appeal of Road to the Show is the thrill of the chase. You start in the minor league system and have to earn your place on the MLB roster. Podcasts, TV show snippets and other media will frequently be played where you can see popular baseball personalities either ridicule and doubt or build up hype for your superstar.


During the early access period of the game, there have been several bugs and issues with Diamond Dynasty. In the hours after release, players saw their marketplace orders vanish into thin air. They were not completed, did not show up in active orders, and did not return stubs to players. I saw almost 20,000 stubs worth of my orders just disappear entirely. However, a fix deployed by SDS was able to fix this problem for most players.


Bottom line: Some key changes to MLB The Show 22 show that San Diego Studio is more than aware of improvements that needed to be made to keep the franchise thriving, and they've succeeded. This is one of the best baseball games available yet again. 041b061a72
