  • Summary: Build your own dynasty by signing free agents, wheeling and dealing with other owners or by calling up that hot prospect from the minors. Watch your seasoned veteran’s skills slowly deteriorate and replace him with one of your top picks from the amateur draft. It’s your world and you can select to simply pit your wits against the computer AI, or for the ultimate experience against friends in a multiplayer online league. There’s even the chance to become commissioner and truly customize almost every aspect of the game. [Sports Interactive] Expand

  1. If you are a baseball fan and don’t mind the lack of graphics or the fact that you can't control your team’s every move, this is a must-buy.
  2. Overall, Out of the Park Baseball 2006 is the most ambitious text-based baseball GM simulator ever, and one of the best games of the year. [Sept. 2006, p.65]

    Out Of The Park Baseball 2006 can be summed up in two words for sim sports fans, Home Run.
  4. This is a game that is a baseball purist’s delight, only dampened by the complex interface and steep learning curve.
  5. By no means a bad game, Out Of the Park Baseball is just not quite as clutch in game-winning situations as you might like, but anyone who loves the game of baseball should give it a try.
  6. 70
    A game in waiting. It's certainly playable right now and has some fun despite its issues. Still, you can see how this could end up one of the best baseball game ever made... if it ever gets finished.
  7. Overall, OOTP 2006 is a big letdown, even for an unbiased SI fanboy and OOTP nut like myself. [Sep 2006, p.98]
