Excerpt: Graphically, Sony’s MLB '06: The Show is decent, but nothing spectacular. Player models look very nice, while the stadiums and crowd lack a bit in the visual department. What really impresses me, however, are the animations associated with the players, especially those in the field.
Excerpt: When the “experts” looked at the 2005 Major League Baseball season, it was hard to find any of these gurus who picked the Chicago White Sox to finish any higher than third in the American League Central. It was the Twins’ division to lose.
Conclusion: The audio is fantastic. Forget about the crowd’s cheers and the way they call out your name when you hit a home-run. It’s all about the three man commentary; it sounds so spot-on it’ll shock you. Very few sports games have this sort of detailed commentary.
