  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.

    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 mode. Overall the game is OK. 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. Expand

    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. Expand

    This game is nothing compared to the all star baseballs and any other good baseball game. the hitting system is frustrating and the fielding blows dong. there is also some minor glitches in graphics as you play it. i just rented and would not buy this game. Collapse
