The games is as tight as it ever has been. The one thing that drove me crazy was the depth of the outfield especially right field in which made 1st to 3rd impossible. I was reading the gripes here and one mentioned that he can't pick up the spin on the ball this year but could last year!?? I fully disagree in that hitting to me has become near perfect. I always felt like I was hitting 0-2 in every count in previous years and just hoping to hit the ball somewhere but this year, I feel like the hitter has the hammer on 2-0,3-1 counts. When you make contact the ball drives now where on previous years I didn't feel it.
Another loved the gameplay but had online issues so he gave it a 2? 2? really

The game is absolutely unbelieveable and if this is not the sports game of the year.. I can't wait to play what is

A very good game. It plays great out the box. I like the player morale system in the franchise mode. I love the additional stats, but I would have like to see done in the old Topps traditional baseball card. I was disappointed to see some of the equipment brand style of batting gloves and cleats removed. But overall very pleased with my purchase.

I've only been playing The Show since the 2014 version. And although the graphics are better in 16 than 15, I'm not sure the gameplay is better. In fact I thinks it's down from 15. The pitches are harder to recognize in 16 than 15 or 14. The new Showtime feature is a waste aside from stealing bases. Mostly it's a game gimmick as is the throwing meter, which to me, slows down the gameplay. The game announcers seem like they're speaking from under water. And all the license apparel adds little to the game other than advertising for manufacturers. Overall, I feel that MLB The Show 16 is a step in the wrong direction from MLB The Show 15.

I have never really enjoyed playing sports games online until MLB The Show 16. I have exclusively played Franchise modes and other non-online modes, but I have completely changed my tune thanks to this game. Diamond Dynasty is really great, and I am currently in an online franchise that I am really enjoying. I really love this game, my only complaints would be the servers being so terrible at launch and the fact that I spent 40$ on stubbs and got 1 gold player and zero diamonds. In fact, I have opened well over 80 packs and have still yet to get a diamond card. Oh well, guess I will have to grind out the missions..... even more replay value!

This game is very good offline. HOWEVER, online gameplay is highly unstable and the online portions (diamond dynasty especially) suffer from major server problems. Some nights I spend more time trying to get into DD and finding a game than playing the game itself. It's been nearly one month since release and the game is still plagued by these issues. Get your **** together SCEA.

There are things in the game that appear rushed and the lack of attention to details in parts of the game is staggering. Why can't be sort or filter through user created logos in DD? The filter option is there. It just doesn't work. Also the preview window for user created logos in diamond dynasty only works for logos on the first page. If you want to look at the stats of your players in DD you can't sort by stat in the statistics menu. But you can if you pause during a game.
