Major League Baseball 2K6
19 April 2006
Conclusion: At the core, MLB 2K6 has the makings of becoming a very successful franchise, especially with EA banished to the college ranks. Hitting and pitching controls are excellent, but improved defensive movement and base running control are still needed.
Excerpt: All three of the above car brands offer high speeds, smooth handling, and plenty of optional features. The difference between them is that Ferraris and Porsches look sexy, whereas a BMW is typically dull and business-like. That's MLB 2K6 in a nutshell--playable, but not much fun to watch.
Excerpt: While Major League Baseball 2K6 is a deep and feature-rich baseball simulation, it is also very bland in execution. 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. Inside Edge data shows you how likely a pitcher is to throw a certain pitch.
Pros: Exquisite hitting and pitching interfaces, Deep franchise mode, Comprehensive stats tracking, Inside Edge integrates stats into gameplay, Online tourneys and leagues
Cons: Not enough replays and cutaways, Same plays happen all the time, Generic broadcast views compared to 2K5, No cutaways or broadcast transitions online, Miller and Morgan left their excitement at home
