MLB The Show 18 Review
This might sound odd, but I love reviewing sports games. I really do. I’ve been doing it for over a decade and it’s an annual check in to see how some of my favorite video game franchises are doing. With the start of spring, it means it’s time to check out and review the latest baseball game from Sony San Diego, MLB The Show 18. In my review of MLB The Show 17 last year, I mentioned that I felt the franchise was beginning to feel a little long in the tooth. So, were there big changes in this year’s game?
NBA Playgrounds does a solid job of filling the void left by the NBA Street and NBA Jam series. There is a deep roster of players, and the game's cartoonish visuals look great, but the bare-bones online play and frustrating gameplay mechanics sometimes make the game feel more like a chore rather than an enjoyable experience.
Top Spin is by far the best tennis game of all time. The one thing that could use improvement for a hopeful sequel next year is a longer career mode. Besides that, Top Spin tennis is perfect. If you are in need of a tennis game or even a game to get use out of your Live subscription, Top Spin is a perfect game for just that.
