Run the table and rake in rewards with brand new mode “Showdown”. A new experience and updates throughout DD make Diamond Dynasty the best version yet.

Overall, MLB The Show 20 is another marvel for San Diego Studios. The tweaks they implemented and the gameplay options they have provided only stand to improve the product. They own baseball in gaming and it looks like they’re not ready to give it up anytime soon.

MLB The Show 20 is clearly the culmination of all the hard work that went into the previous iterations, and then some. The updated and added game mechanics such as First Step and Perfect-Perfect batting add a sense of realism to a game where instincts and being quick on your feet is important. With a plethora of game modes, it’s almost overwhelming at times because you don’t know where to start. But once you begin, this game is hard to put down.

MLB The Show 20 is back with new modes and some substantial tweaks to create a stellar baseball experience that’s sure to help pass the time until America’s pastime returns in full force.

While I can see gamers going “Wait, isn’t this the same as last year?”. Yes, and no. Obviously the similarities are there. That said, it’s not really a bad thing The Show 19 was a pretty solid game. As 20, nothing bad really against it. They added “custom” teams. However, the one bad thing is that you can’t create a stadium, put prices on snacks like hot dogs, tickets etc like you could back in EA’s MVP Baseball 2005. Overall though, solid game.

If this proves to be the final Sony-exclusive baseball simulation that we ever get, the development team deserves to be proud of what they managed to squeeze onto a 50GB Bluray disc. 8/10 banging trash cans.

MLB The Show 20 marks another solid entry for the series. New additions to the fielding game are welcome and fans of the sport will find a wealth of systems and modes to enjoy. It may be a bit overwhelming for newcomers, but offers a great range of tutorials to get payers up to speed. There’s a lot of game here, provided you enjoy the sport. While it wont make you a fan if you weren’t already, it’s still the best rendition of the sport you can enjoy from the comfort of the couch.
