4/5 stars
Matt Paprocki (GamesRadar+)

Still surprisingly swing-and-miss online, but for long-lasting and moreish solo play, NBA 2K22 is its only competitor in a two-horse championship duel.

MLB The Show 22 stills plays a phenomenal game of baseball, but incremental updates reveal a series that’s lacking in ambition.

From the gorgeous visuals that transport you directly to the field, to the stellar controls, you won’t find another sports game out there that will captivate you quite like this one. Feeling the roar of the crowd swelling up as you continue to rack up points, to the way that your players will express their emotions on the field, this is a sports title that other developers of the genre should take notes from.
