  1. The game of baseball is represented perfectly in MLB 06: The Show, and not only is this a candidate for best baseball game of the year, but possibly best sports game as well.
  2. If you're a sports fan with a PSP, my advice is simple: Buy MLB '06, bring it home, pop in that UMD, and enjoy real baseball excitement all summer long.
  3. Crafting one of the best versions of their game in years, 989 Sports also succeeds in crafting one of the best games currently on the market.
  4. This one is easy, MLB 06: The Show has the goods to satisfy and baseball fan. The gameplay has been nailed.

    Arguably one of the best sports titles on the PSP.

    It's a shame the online stutters so horribly and we have to wrestle with the analog nub to get our pitches where we want them to go. Yankees or BoSox, everyone can agree that MLB 06 is worth picking up on PlayStation Portable.
  7. Like Scott Spezio, this game is worth having on your roster until a better one comes around. [May 2006, p.96]

    This game rocks! I'm addicted. The Chicago Cubs might actually win the World Series on this thing. Isn't that a sign of Armageddon?!? Where's my pants? Man, this thing is cool. I love this game. Expand

    Its all about Career Mode with this one. This unique mode allows you to create a player and just play with him. You start out in the minors and can even just play YOUR at-bats during a game. By performing well, you earn training hours which boost your attributes as your build your future star. You are at the manager's mercy so all you can do is take care of your own business. Talk about Replay Value! The hitting dynamics don't stack up to MVP 2005, but no other game ever has. This one is a true gem though and certainly worth buying. Expand

    The game is fun, the graphics are not the best, its i love career mode, i like that you can train your own guy to be the best, i like that you have the option to mouth off to the coach. It is one of the best baseball games ive played Expand
