EGM’s TAKE: While gamers might need a little convincing to pull the trigger on SSX and Twisted Metal, baseball fans worth their salt know MLB The Show is the best baseball series in town. Not to be outdone, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is also looking to be every bit as pretty as it’s predecessor and comes with a list of improvements to boot. This is a win, win situation for most gamers.
