    The game is somewhat bland. Pitching and hitting are extremely better, while the two announcers seem to have just got out of prison. Miller and Morgan have no excitement and enthusiasm. I think the game is a bit glitchy. It freezes at random points, causing me to restart my PS2. I give it a 5 at best. It has a lot of options and gameplay modes including the never before seen GM Career The game is somewhat bland.

My advice to you, if you like a game that is mostly strategical, buy it. But if you're a baseball fan who likes action and enthusiastic announcers don't buy it. Because if you do, you will be sorry.

    Fielding is flawed, hitting is just okay. But really like the "inside edge". Of the baseball games I've played this year (MLB 06 "The Show and NCAA BB) this is the best.

    The side game is very good (realistic stadium,players,audioetc...but the playing game is very poor. Hitting is more luck than total control, fielding is very slow (catching-throwing) if you do come with another baseball next year, you will have to improve this part.

    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]

    Inside Edge is the most significant addition to the game, and we hope to see scouting play a part in the genre in the future. But control problems with baserunning and fielding, along with a lack of general polish, keep 2K6 from being the great game it's trying to be.
  3. 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.
