This morning I had to go to the hospital to do some pre-registration crap for my upcoming surgery. I figured this would be a good opportunity to break out my PSP for the first time in … well a long time. I am not sure when I last turned on my PSP.
I spent a decent amount of time with MLB 07 The Show, which reminded me of a couple of things. First, the PSP really is a great system, if you wanted a portable PS2 experience. Second, MLB 07 is really, really good. MLB 07 Perhaps one of the top three games on the system, right up there with Winning Eleven and Lumines (and maybe Pinball Hall of Fame, which is one of my all-time favorite games).
For all the positives MLB 07 offers, I am only going to mention the negatives. Yes, I am in a bitchy mood because I am out of Sweet Water 420. What can you do? The load times suck, but that is pretty much the case with all PSP games. It is hard to get precision pitching placement because of the terrible analog nub controls (once again, this is a problem on my PSP games). The commentary sometimes gets a little off, or slow, or behind the play. Finally, it takes too long to finish a 9 inning game.
If you have a PSP, and you are a baseball fan, and you can get past the negatives listed above, you owe it to yourself to pick up MLB 07 The Show. This is a solid baseball game.
