  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. 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.
  3. Hitting and pitching controls are excellent, but improved defensive movement and base running control are still needed.
  4. Most games will have you shaking your head (if not cursing) at the fielding. That's a huge letdown when the pitching and batting interaction is as strong as that of MLB 2K6. Inside Edge is such a fantastic addition that fans have to see it in action.
  5. Dyed-in-the-wool simmers will appreciate the game's stats-focused gameplay, as well as its comprehensive online mode, but anyone who's accustomed to the wealth of play animations and broadcast-style nuances found in other games will find this one a snoozer by comparison.
  6. In the offing, 2K Games has made a comprehensive, deep baseball sim that just isn't much fun to watch.
  7. Playing online is a lot of fun because you can remove the silly AI from the equation, but when you add up all of the game's problems you are left with a very sloppy effort on the part of 2K Sports and Kush Games.
