SGO - MLB The Show 21 Review

Solid and accurate review.

Should have built the game from the ground up for next gen. Mistake imo. Your thoughts?

Re: SGO - MLB The Show 21 Review

Has some good points but a few things.

It bothers me so much when reviewers don't know what their due diligence should have told them. If you are going to write a review you should know that SOTS is missing. If you don't even mention that in your "whats missing" section, I gotta be honest it detracts from me believing you have played or researched enough to support the validity of your review.

That being said, most points are fair and accurate. I would challenge the statement that stadium creator is more than anyone could hope. Its good but a lot of people are struggling with some of its shortcomings.

Lastly, I really disagree with the "ground up" philosophy. I would way rather have this version then the stripped down, basically no modes versions of first next gen iterations that used to happen. A game can look and play nice but with no modes the replay value is terrible. I don't want to go back to that.

Iím not trying to get banned but man how are we continuing to allow this game to have no innovation. We criticize madden so much, but this game barely tries anything new at all.

The big difference is madden is awful. The show is very tight gameplay wise. If it ainít broke donít fix it. And the new pitching mechanic is very innovative and gives new life to the game. Iím not blindly defending it. I skipped it the past few years, but itís def a very good game.

SDS have definitely chosen the "if its not broke......." Style of developing. There is validity to your statement. I would argue that pin point pitching is innovation at its finest though. If you don't use it I understand feeling there isn't innovation but out of any show game in recent memory, that with stadium creator, 21 has the most innovation its seen in a while.

Building from the ground up is not always as good as it seems, trust me there would be so much complaining if they did that and had to strip the game down which would almost be inevitable

Innovation is the stadium creator. I'm def no sds apologist, I agree they've skated by barely getting grief but no innovation is not correct.

I get that. And itís probably neat. But man Itís 2021 and I canít adjust in the batter box. At least give me a option where I can place my batter. Let me walk in the dug out when Iím not at bat. Itís so much immersion things I wish this game could implement. But I know it will fall on death ears so I donít bother. I hate Madden but my gawwwd at least they attempt new things lol
