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: Nowadays, the criterion distinguishing a great baseball game from a good one is the degree to which the game imitates all of the little plays and broadcast nuances that make baseball such a compelling sport to watch. To that extent, Major League Baseball 2K6 is merely a good baseball game, because while it is a deep and feature-rich baseball simulation, it doesn't deliver the same variety of flashy plays and dynamic cutaways that the truly great sims do.
Pros: Deep and satisfying gameplay, Plenty of play modes, Complete franchise mode, Good commentary from Jon Miller and Joe Morgan
Cons: Lifeless atmosphere, Same plays and replays happen all the time, No batter walk-ups, Precious little audio other than the commentary
