Summary

Not much keeps MLB 14 The Show on PS4 from being the very best it can be on almost all levels. Though some uncommon visual and network discrepancies linger, San Diego Studios raises the bar that it's set for the last eight years in baseball simulation.

We like

  • Authentic broadcast-level presentation
  • Actual online play works smoothly
  • Butter-smooth frame rate

We dislike

  • Peculiar network issues linger
  • Sporadic facial detail lowers realism
  • Lengthy install
