Summary: Yes, the lack of liscensed major leaguers hurts the title (EA lost the MLB liscense to 2K sports, so they either had to make a college game or sit on the sidelines) but otherwise this game is slightly BETTER than MVP 05. The pitching animations are somewhat better and the stadiums are a little brighter. The default pitching view is from the mound (not behind the plate) and it actually does not change sides depending on whether a lefty or righty is batting.
Summary: This will be a review of the only part of the game I have played. Dynasty Mode. It all works like the past MVP games, start your season and pick a team. For me it is UCLA. I started and was a little scepticle of the load and fire swing. Once you get use to the swing it is a very fun game. When I fist started I would get maybe 3-5 hits a game. Now i am at 9-11 hits and it is a realistic stat for the college game.
Summary: NCAA MVP Baseball 2006 is a great introduction to college baseball for video game systems. The gameplay can be a difficult to learn, but it is completely customizable if you're continually having trouble. For instance, the game settings to help you make contact and hit for power can be changed to make the game more or less difficult.
Summary: MLB gave the rights to make baseball games to sega (MLB 2K6) and sony (MLB The Show 2006) EA Sports made this a college game because THEY HAD TO. if they wanted to make a baseball game it had to be a college game or nothing the game it's self is actually very good. the gameplay is the same as MVP 2005. its different and some new modes. its more fun with colleges, especially if you go to a college that is in the game.
Summary: this game is pretty cool. i played the dynasty mode.....created the UTEP MINERS and began on a long journey.......it was cool how i had to meet challenges to get gym equiptment, gloves and even shoe deals!!!!! it rocked!!!!
Summary: Here is where I am going to start the review: The analog control. To tell the truth haven't mastered the analog fielding yet and the analog batting takes a bit to master but my question is why the hell didn't anyone think of this earlier? The analog batting makes a ton of sense and the fielding os a pretty good idea too. I remember talking to friends years ago talking about how much sense it would make to use analog batting. But anyway, enough about that.
Summary: Well, I thought since the last review was completley pointless that I'd write a review for the game after I just played it for a few hours. Personally, I was excited when I heard EA was making an NCAA baseball game because I am a fan of college baseball. More major league but I have to root for my Irish of Notre Dame. Sadly, EA wont be making an MLB game this year but no worries this seems to be fun. Here's what I love and hated about the game so far.
Summary: I am very pleased with this game. It has very fast load times. The creation engine for creating your own ball park is pretty cool. I do with it ha moe options like a Bush fence instead of just a wall. But overall, cool. I like the classic control of the batting better than the new version, but you do have 3 batting options classic, part classic part new, an the new version. Same thing with fielding..
Summary: This game isn't as fun as advertised since you don't really get to play as any team in college baseball. The players that you recruit to your school can be altered as you see fit, including playing ability. The only plus is that you can indeed alter a player to look exactly like yourself. All in all, it's a waste of money. Only buy it if you can get it 75 percent off with an additional discount.
