    MLB The Show 14

    Just picked it up on my lunch break. I had enough time to create my player on Road to the Show mode.

    The intro is just awesome. I loved it.

    Anyone else started playing this already?

    What's a ballpark estimate as to how long it takes to finish 1 game?

    I'm not a huge baseball fan, but I do like sports games in general. On a scale of 1-10, how tough is this game to pick up and start playing?

    Not hard at all. You have full control of the game sliders and options.

    I think it's safe to say MLB 14: The Show is the pinnacle of baseball games. Just another must have PS4 exclusive.

    Fairly easy to get into and play. Tough to master. Just like Lethal said there are sliders to help you out if you are having trouble. Once you get the hang of it you can scale them back down. Road to the Show mode, create a player, will consume your life!

    If you understand most of baseball you will be fine. Hardest things about the game are timing for hits and know where to place pitches based on the count and situation. But with the sliders you can help out with any errors you make. I would say to just pick up and play difficulty of between 3-4 but that's mostly just getting down the hitting. Pitching is much easier to do your first time around. Fortunately, at least in previous games, they gave all kinds of button options to make it easier or harder whichever you want.

    Say simple one button swing, controlling the zone of the hit plus one button, analog control, etc. My favorite is analog swing. It helps with your timing imo but it is harder to get the hang of but once you get it down you will reap the benefits.

    I got my copy hours ago and have been playing non stop since then, and I have not had any type of errors like those above.

    Just like anything though, errors happen, doesn't mean they are wide spread.

    It's no Madden. Lol It takes maybe 3 games top to start getting the hang of it. Don't let my words scare you. It's just a challenge at times but it's not extremely hard like you may think.

    I know this might be a stupid question, but would I enjoy the game even if I dont like baseball? Is it enjoyable to play regardless if you like baseball or not? Seeing everyone rave about this game for ages makes me want to give it a go.

    It can be. if youre that worried about it check out 13 on ps3 or vita if you have those. Road To the Show is probably the best mode in there since its got a lot of RPG like elements to it. Start off with an 18 year old rookie and put him in the minor leagues, build up hes stats, get used to the game, and work your way up to the major leagues. from there keep building your stats until you eventually become the best player in the game. Whats cool now is that your RTTS characters can be uploaded to MLB 15 and 16 and so on and so forth so you dont have to keep restarting every year, and you can actually finish one persons career.


    Tacos Rule!

    First 2 games of the season I managed to kick ass. 2-0 and outscored the Twins 12-4.

    3rd game I got my ass kicked 6-1. Just when I was thinking the setting may have been set to easy, the game shows me that each game is different. I just could not get a good rhythm with Jake Peavy. I had to pull him out of the game after just 5 innings.

    This game is awesome.
