  1. Outside of this, through its array of innovations, Major League Baseball 2K6 blows the doors off of what you could expect from a baseball game. [Apr 2006, p.116]
  2. But the thing that makes this game just pretty good and not fantastic is the faulty fielding. It's not a deal breaker, but it is noticeable and at times frustrating.
  3. The presentation is solid but lacks the zing of the ESPN license, the commentary gets a little bland, and the presentation skips a bit online.
  4. Hitting and pitching controls are excellent, but improved defensive movement and base running control are still needed.
  5. Once you get past the little nuances, such as the fielding and spotty baserunning, there is a solid baseball game underneath.

    Worst baseball game I've ever played. EA's NCAA is so much better it's not even funny. The rosters in this game are wrong, the Worst baseball game I've ever played. EA's NCAA is so much better it's not even funny. The rosters in this game are wrong, the fielding is almost impossible. Hitting is a joke. The info that the announcers give is often very wrong (they even call players by the wrong name). I'm very disappointed. Full Review »

    The rosters are about 40% correct. The updates do no better. Really sad that players that retired in 03' are still on some teams. Trying The rosters are about 40% correct. The updates do no better. Really sad that players that retired in 03' are still on some teams. Trying to update your players yourself is so time consuming I've given up. Over 175 players with fake names that to change them all be ready to set aside a month. Get with it 2K. The bugs and glitches make it difficult at times and what could have been great, now is o.k. at best. Full Review »
