This Game Will Move You
Last year's MLB game introduced the PlayStation Move feature to the series and this year's game improves it. Combine motion control with the new Beginner mode feature and you have a kid friendly game that is easy to pick up and play. Even if you do not have the PlayStation Move, the game pad controls of MLB 13: The Show is just as good. The best part of Beginner mode controls is that you can adjust the controls for each part of the game separately. If you are really good at pitching, but get confused by fielding, you can keep the expert controls for pitching and use beginner mode for everything else.
The Year of Improvements
While there hasn't been many new features added to the game, MLB 13: The Show still stands out from last year's MLB 12 by introducing easier modes for beginners and other improvements throughout the game. The most notable change is to batting, which is made a bit easier. You cannot simply swing away at every ball, but it is easier to carry out strategies like fouling off difficult pitches. The biggest issue that still remains in the game is the long loading times, which is especially annoying when playing through the Road to the Show campaign. Overall, baseball fans will love MLB 13: The Show and new fans looking to try it out will also find something fun and enjoyable.
