If you are a fan of sports video games, this game is for you! Suitable and fun for all ages, the latest edition of The Show features the most realistic baseball gaming experience yet. Here are five reasons to check out this exciting game from the Bookmobile!

1. Amazing GraphicsJack’s Video Game Review: MLB The Show 21, Fountaindale Public Library

The Show is extremely realistic and resembles an actual TV broadcast. The players’ features are also more detailed and accurate than ever before. The graphics for the stadiums, logos and fans are especially captivating. As you are playing the game, you can clearly imagine yourself standing in the batter’s box admiring the scenery around you.

2. Multiple Game Modes

The Show features many game modes to choose from including: Road to the Show, Franchise, Diamond Dynasty and more! If you want an easy introduction to the game, playing an exhibition game is a good place to start. Franchise mode is more involved and allows you to be the general manager of any team. Home Run Derby is a casual, fun game where the object is to hit as many home runs as possible.

3. Customizable Game Settings

Once you figure out which game mode you like the most, you can customize stadiums, jerseys, players and game settings to your liking. The game can be enjoyed by gamers of all skill levels.

4. In-Game Commentary

Another cool feature of The Show is the in-game commentary which is provided by real ESPN commentators Matt Vasgersian and Mark DeRosa. You can also choose to turn this feature off and listen to the sounds of the game instead. However, the commentary can often be helpful for beginners in learning how to play the game.
