  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. New hitting and pitching systems add more intuitiveness to the two most important aspects of any baseball game.
  3. A good step forward and an idea of how 2K Games will utilize their exclusive license.
  4. It's not big on frills but it is loaded with modes, including online play.
  5. Solid baseball, with fun gameplay and great presentation, but poor graphics and annoying bugs means we might need to bring in a pinch-hitter.
  6. 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.
  7. If this is what we're going to see after the exclusive license was inked, then Xbox baseball fans are going to be worse off because of it.
