Gretzky NHL 2006

  • Excerpt: Hockey videogames have been around for quite a while, and despite many minor improvements over the years, better graphics can only add so much to the same basic idea. However, every once and a while a game comes along that helps redefine a genre.

  • Summary: Taking the mound for a new season, Sony's 989 Studios have created their finest baseball title to date in MLB 2006. With many new features and improvements to the gameplay and interface, this installment is deeper and more challenging than previous titles. The pitching system has undergone a dramatic improvement, allowing for more precise throws, and the fielding system feels much more natural as well.

  • Excerpt: One thing that Gretzky NHL doesn't skimp on is game modes. There are single games, franchise, practice, a full online support, and Wayne Vs. Wayne mode. A full AHL license has been included in the game, so if your dream has been to take your local AHL team (Go Norfolk Admirals!) all the way, you finally get your chance. You can also unlock some jerseys and a few special players by completing challenges during the course of play.

  • Excerpt: MLB 2006 is Sony’s and 989 Sports’ entry into this year’s baseball game pennant chase and it turns out to be a worthy competitor. All drives to the title begin with the first pitch, so let’s begin by looking at the way the game models the all-important pitcher/batter battle. When pitching you’ll first select from the pitcher’s arsenal of pitches and then pick the spot in or out of the zone that you’ll try to hit.

  • Excerpt: Last year's MLB 2005 was not that spectacular of a baseball game, and I have never been a fan of 989 in general as far as sports games go. After completing my first exhibition game, my opinion on both the franchise and the game house changed completely. The game looks good and plays great and the amount of detail in between is very impressive.

  • Conclusion: It’s good, it’s just not the best and 99% of the gaming population only has time for one baseball title per year. I look forward to next year’s offering from 989, because they really do have a great foundation for a solid franchise.

  • Excerpt: MLB 2006 has a robust list of features including: exhibition, home run derby, online, season, franchise, and career modes. Casual players will probably want to play the game's season mode since it allows you to focus on playing a season, while not overloading you with other management tasks - though you will still perform some of the functions of the general manager.

  • Excerpt: Like two titans, a pair of legendary franchises continue to ratchet up their rivalry. They sign huge contracts and throw massive amounts of money around in an effort to squash their competition. Though it looks like one of these two behemoths will claim the prize year in and year out, there’s always hope that a wildcard will unseat the giants, proving that heart and brains can beat big stacks of cash.
