  1. But I can tell you that it's an upgrade from the Xbox version, as it should be. It looks better, and it plays better now that the fielding works correctly now.
  2. Is MLB 2K6 close to perfect? No. It’s far from it. Beneath the little kinks, however, there is a solid, fun baseball game to be played and, in the end, isn’t that what we all want?
  3. The replay value isn’t very high for casual fans of the sport, and I suspect not even hardcore fans will spend copious amounts of time with the title.

    Deep statistics are offset by a clunky interface. A deep career mode is offset by annoying seasonal goals. Hi-res graphics are offset by frame rate issues. Great musics and stadium songs are offset by flimsy on-field sound effects.
  5. Where the game has been severely improved over its last title on the Xbox, on a next-generation system, the hardware is not effectively utilized to make this game a viable choice over its cheaper Xbox cousin.
  6. 60
    Playing against a real person, the strength of the pitcher-batter face-off carries the game; playing alone, you're more likely to send this one down to the minors before the end of the season.
  7. What we basically have here is a glossed-over version of the game with very little addition and a $20 price drop, not to mention some horrible freezing problems that send this game to the showers.
