Re: MLB The Show 19 Review

It would be nice if this article could also elaborate on the defensive perspective of Player Lock and RTTS which is fundamentally the same. Opposed to just the 1st player perspective experience.

The Player Lock and RTTS defensive experience feels overlooked considering the number of issues with these modes defensively that have been consistent over the years most notably.


PickOff Moves: The basic pick off move when playing as a short stop or a second basemen.

The controls do not work and have not been improved over a very long period of time. And the CPU always returns safe. Regardless of runner speed or ratings. The controls are also listed incorrectly in the help menu for several years.

Defensive Shifts: I have mentioned this before but when playing as a Infield Position failure too move your player in time before the count down timer reaches zero. Results in your player being on top of the other infielders. You also have to repeat this process for for each pitch. As a work around you can change the option to “Some” which says only non-routine hits but it’s not very clear exactly what that option means.

Tagging: Several times on defense while a play is still active runners will often jog into second and third base and a user controlled Player Lock or RTTS player is unable to make the tag. Defensive ratings do not affect this in any way. It’s especially painful in close games as you are left with no choice to make a play.

Cut Off Relays: Often your controlled Player Lock or RTTS infielder is overlooked when throws come from the outfield. Even when you are in key spots the ball comes in and disregards your controlled player on the field and goes to the next available CPU fielder completely taking you out of the play and often allowing runs to score.

I give it a 7.5
I agree with the review but until they fix the framerate issue I cant give it a higher score

I'm planning on picking the game up for the first time in a few years. Hopefully I'm not disappointed with franchise considering it's basically the only mode I play.

Frame Rate issue is such a disappointment.
I feel like I get very tired after a short period.*My eyes can't take it!
Waiting patiently for a possible fix or acknowledgement...

Agree that any improvements made to this years game is quickly washed away by the frame rate issues.

I dont have the game but based of the past I am guessing that most people dont have the issue because it has been said the game is at 60 FPS the last like 10 years yet ever year there is like a thread talking about FPS issues.
