PS4: Is The Show 21 worth it?

SDS

I own The Show 20 and primarily play Franchise. Does The Show 21 improve upon 20 enough to warrant the purchase?

SDS

No version of them will be the show is worth it right now just wait let's see if they fix the issues I mean unless you're willing to play diamond Dynasty that's really the only mode right now is playable and half the time that's not playable because the servers barely work half the time

SDS

Short answer: no. Updated roster and franchise schedule. I made the mistake of viewing ps5 as a must-have,when all they did was take the PS4 build and speed up frame rate. Until they build the game on PS5, it’ll be just a yearly update. Stadium Creator is a joke too, so many basic things they left out. It’s cool conceptually but it doesn’t take a genius to innovate the idea that you should actually be able to build and edit stadiums, have a searchable vault, and have night games, at launch

Claims like this are difficult to take seriously unless backed up by a link to one’s own software to prove how easy it is.

SDS

No I think it’s fair to say it’s quite easy to identify simple things that could’ve just as easily been included when designing the feature. Especially the vault. Like cmon

DD is just a mode for streamers and Madden fanboys who like baseball. They could easily include so many other features and make just as much money

this statement is so asinine. Create a stadium is not new to sports games. Matter of fact some form of that mode has existed for many years in much better iterations than what we have in the show. so yes its really easy to see what's missing bc people are aware of whats possible for a video game studio to develop. Dont need to be able to program it yourself to see that this mode is lacking a ton and isnt what people wanted. They gave us a not so well thought out mode just as a marketing tool for next gen.

Thank you!

I want so much to yes, it is worth it but... at this time... it just isn't. WTF were they thinking with this version?

All the other sports games w/ Create a Stadium (Football, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer, etc) all have regulation field sizes and CAS is basically nothing but reskinning a single template.

In MLB, you're literally changing the shape and size of the playing surface. Apples and Oranges, my friend.

SDS

stick w 20. it'll go down as a classic show game. at least offline. i know the online community says it's the worst ever.

Wait till June - it goes down to $20 sometimes. 19 went to ps plus in August time frame a few years ago.

SDS

The game is practically unplayable at this point. Wait until they at least iron out some of the more egregious bugs

SDS

This is hot garbage right now. Save your money.

SDS

No. Save your money. Looks like nothing changed. I give up A rated player for prospects. The other team ends up releasing that player that they just gave up their best prospects for. I was hoping this was fixed. This is just stupid.

SDS

How do I access my cloud? I want to play with my rosters from 2020 and it would allow me to access and upload them to the cloud to download in 2021?

SDS

I think they took that away. This half baked game.
