As for the gameplay, you can stretch your experience however you see fit. Want to crank up the difficulty and see how you perform as an All-Star? Or maybe you prefer taking the easy way out and giving your team an advantage against power players by moving some sliders around. MLB 14: The Show continues to be an accessible title, with a number of options to mess around with to make the experience feel like your own. Obviously, MLB 14: The Show's most defining changes on PS4 lie in the presentation. The audio continues to show commanding quality, between the improved crowd noises and the solid (if repetitive) commentary throughout each match-up. The graphics are also quite wow-worthy, producing the kind of realistic player models and TV angles that you come to expect from a broadcast. Those fields look nice as well, whether you prefer the ivy in the 100-year old Wrigley Field or the Green Monster in Boston's park. There are some slight hair issues here and there, but this isn't bad for a PS4 rookie effort. Not at all. The only true downside is the loading time that comes with producing these graphics. The contests can take up to about a minute to get started, although it runs pretty smoothly after that. This should be expected for next-gen hardware, but here's hoping that with MLB 15, Sony speeds things along. Just a tad. Regardless of loading hitches and slight blemishes here and there, MLB 14: The Show is one of the best sports games you can get on the PS4 right now. All of its excellent features remain intact, and the presentation really shines, especially on a nice summer evening. If you need your baseball fix, definitely play ball. This impressions piece is based on a review copy provided by the publisher. MLB 14: The Show is available now for PlayStation 4, as well as PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. The game is rated E for everyone.
Mind some hair issues, the players look fantastic
