Time to Play MLB The Show 23. The game of baseball has always had a special place in my heart. Playing these games every year is something that I look forward to. This year is no different as San Diego Studios hit another home run with this release. The game is better than ever. This year the newly added story mode of the Negro Leagues brings a great way to introduce people of all ages to the unsung heroes of baseball. It is one of the most interesting ways to teach us about the players as you finish missions to unlock their cards, which lets you play as those players in diamond dynasty mode. It is a mode that I hope they continue to add to and refine for years to come because it will keep informing new generations of amazing moments and players in baseball history.
The sounds of the show have been dramatically improved this year. The crack of the bat when you connect makes batting come to life. Hitting a home run now looks, feels, and sounds as close to real life as ever. Diamond dynasty mode is still packed with a ton of moments and packs to rip along with collections to fulfill so that you can keep adding to your team. This year adds in the WBC teams and players, having some missions to complete to unlock cool items like jerseys and icons. Overall, this game is a perfect swing into the world of baseball and continues to make improvements from the year before. MLB The Show 23 is available across all platforms now!
