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: 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 have read the various opinions expressed in the reviews. The key for me in buying NCAA games has always been the fictional players. I am one of those gamers who always needs the updated rosters that each new game provides. However, with the NCAA games this is not necessary and I like that option. I have also heard the complaints about the new throwing and batting controls but rest assured that you have the option of using the classic M.V.P. controls.

Summary: I have read the review that other's wrote and I still bought the game. Everyone complains that there are no crowd chants or school fight songs, etc. Let me ask you something, Have you ever been to a college baseball game? THEY DON'T PLAY FIGHT SONGS!!!!! If the game had that it would be annoying and corny. This game is a ton of fun. It's very realistic and challenging. Sure you can creat players, blow out there rankings and make them a superstar...
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: plain and simple: for 20 bucks, this is a great buy. i would have liked the gameplay but with MLB rosters and such but that wont happen with MVP anymore becuase the other companies bought out the rights of the names of the players from EA so they cant use them anymore. very good game overall though. commentaters are very dry and boring, great soundtrack though.
