In many ways, MLB The Show 18 has more in common with the oft-dependable Arietta than the shiny-new Ohtani, whose Babe Ruth-style two-way play on the mound and at the plate had every team lining up to sign him. This year, there is a familiarity with the gameplay which doesn't quite excite as far as it used to. The Display 18's record of developments lacks the punch some have come to MLB The Show 18 Stubs expect out of a top-tier game. However, like the Phillies, buyers of MLB The Show 18 should know that they are getting a reliable and high-quality product, just maybe not the most alluring we've seen in the past couple of years.

The Show's gameplay is as good as it's ever been is an important statement to make up front. Hitting feels somewhat more natural and marginally less bothersome, without feeling too easy. A redesigned feedback platform, seemingly borrowed from the mythical MVP 2005, fast and easily allows you to evaluate swing timing and contact.

Once put in to play, the ball travels more naturally than previous decades, even more than in the very great MLB The Show 2017, thanks in big part to greater hit variety and more realistic physics. I'm seeing far more fading line drives and balls which espouse the fouls lines. Weak strikes around the plate also reveal more variety.

Fielding also seems tighter, with players acting more like their real-life counterparts. Catchers react quicker to cheap MLB 18 stubs balls in the dirt than previously; if you are used to exploiting slow catchers, be ready to get thrown out more often. I have also seen more fluid tags all around the field, though there are still a few occasional robotic cartoons.
