Hardcore Gamer 4/5[6]
IGN 8.1/10[7]

Matt Beaudette of Hardcore Gamer gave the game a 4/5, calling it "excellent," going onto say that "it seems quite apparent most of the work on this year’s game went into getting it up and running on the PS4 with shiny new graphics." [6]

Ryan McCaffrey of IGN gave the game an 8.1/10, saying it was "yet again, a stellar baseball simulation that's packed with enough quality game modes to occupy and entertain me for the entire season, but there are few exciting new features, and online is currently a very laggy experience." [7]

Jack DeVries of Gamespot gave the game an 8/10, and commented "The presentation in The Show remains stellar, offering lively, informative commentary that holds more humor than you might expect." [8]

The PlayStation 4 version of the game became the fastest-selling entry in the series to date within the first week of the game's release on the platform.[9]
