This game is fun and gets expanded on with its sequels.

Summary: MLB:06 The Show is the first game under The Show series of baseball games. It was a first party game developed by SCE San Diego Studio, for the PlayStation 2 and PSP. Sound: The game has a lot of good music (there are twelve songs overall) and good commentators (which you can turn off at anytime if they get repetitive.) 8/10 Graphics: The Graphics look very good.
Summary: I think the game from 2005 was better (MLB06 - Not "The Show" Version). This seems to be exactly the same except the players are dumber (they'll slow down before jumping to catch home runs, they didn't do stupid stuff like that in MLB06), the scoreboards are uglier (the layouts looked sharper before), they have a stupid mini game feature on the side, and finally, a positive, the players were updated for the 2006 season (which isn't that much of an improvement).
Summary: This game has great graphics for Ps2. The franchise mode is deep and fun. There were glitches. Whenever a pop fly was hit over his head (either by a little or a lot) they would run to it take a couple steps to a different side than the ball side and go back over and dive and make this amazing chatch without even looking with his glove strethced out at torso level. What is up with That?
Summary: I could go on and on about all the good things this game has, but I will just list a few problems that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. 1) There are no bloop base hits, everything to the outfield is either a line drive or a can-o-corn fly out. 2) Diving is pretty much useless, the player seems to flop on the ground rather than extend at all. 3) Not a lot of in-game injuries, they only seem to occur when you simulate a season game.
Summary: pretty good graphics and great gameplay give this game 4 stars overall. The only problem with gameplay is that there is a cut off every time you through from the outfield. The game has great features though, like the career mode where you create yourself, someone else, or just someone you just plain made up. They usally start in triple A but you can train and get better. You can ask for a trade, complain, or asked to be called up.
Summary: This review contains a laundry list of the known bugs and problems with MLB 06: The Show. If you notice any more while playing, please email me and/or leave a comment here so I can add them to the list and hopefully get the list to the programmers: Sometimes on a bunt the catcher just stands there and doesn't chase it because he "knows" that it is going to roll foul.
Awesome Game; but with some very annoying flaws...

Summary: MLB 06: The Show, is without a doubt the best baseball game on the market. However, it does have some very aggravating flaws that will takes some getting used to. Among other things, players have a habit of advancing to second base on their own, even if there is a runner on second that is not moving, or if they just hit an infield single. I can't begin to tell you how many outs of lost because of this. Another annoying glitch is the frequency of wild pitches.
Summary: I've been playing this game for about 3 weeks now. In previous years I was loyal to the EA Sports version until they lost their contract with MLB this year. The Show 2006 is a very worthy competitor. Better in many ways and not as good in a couple of others. PROS: - Graphics are good; no better or worst than EA Sports as far as I can tell; - Love how the pitching works, and how pitchers will lose confidence.
Summary: i gave 2k6 3 stars, and the show is definatly better.the graphics and the gameplay were not as good as 2k6,and it is impsossible to hit in the show, but the rosters are way more accurate in the show.many of the players in the show just weren't in 2k6.for the overall package, i'd give the show the nod.
Summary: This is the most realistic baseball i have ever played. The hitting is superb and more difficult and realistic than ever as unlike last year's game when you guess the right pitch it no longer tells you location you still have to read the pitch. Pitching though can be infuriating as the umpires are very inconsistent but generally the calls are evened out. The soundtrack is great, better than ever.
