MLB '06: The Show

The Gamers Temple
13 September 2006
  • Excerpt: The days when sports gamers had to accept stripped-down versions of sports games if they wanted to play while on the go just may be over. MLB 06: The Show is a complete full-featured baseball game packed into a portable package. Just about every feature and game mode that you find in console baseball games can be found crammed onto its little UMD disk.

  • Summary: Taking the action back to the diamond, MLB 06 - The Show for PSP is an excellent baseball simulation that captures the look and feel of the sport. Featuring an array of single player modes and extensive online support, MLB 06 allows you to either play a quick game or go deep in career mode as you build up a young player from the minors to the big leagues.

  • Conclusion: was the career mode. I found it a lot of fun to make a player in my image, run him through spring training, and try to land myself a solid contract with the Seattle Mariners and later land a 20 million dollar contract with the Oakland A's. Overall the game play was generally fun (sometimes frustrating), but all in all good times.

  • Excerpt: Last year's finest PSP sports title returns for 2006 with more refined game play, an unbelievably good broadcast experience, and new online capabilities. The lack of roster options are glaring, however, and the interminable load times take some of the shine off of the overall package.

  • Excerpt: Developer – SCE San Diego Studios Publisher - SCEA Features 1-2 Players Memory Stick Duo – 240KB Wi-Fi Compatible (Ad Hoc/Infrastructure) Having already reviewed the PS2 version of MLB '06 I was very interested to see what kind of transition the game made when ‘shrunk' down to fit on the PSP's UMD. Last years version was a pretty darn good game and I really wondered if Sony could improve on that effort to make an even better portable baseball game then before.

  • Excerpt: Baseball season is here again and Sony has given us a way to take our big league fix on-the-go with MLB '06: The Show for the PlayStation Portable. This latest installment is a realistic and slickly-produced baseball sim that any fan will like, and a major improvement over last year's game, even if it's still missing some of the features that its PlayStation 2 counterpart has.

MLB '06: The Show Review

GameSpot
3 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Not long after the launch of the PlayStation Portable last year, Sony published the plainly titled MLB, which was basically just a quick-and-dirty port of the company's PlayStation 2 baseball game with the graphics dumbed down and some features removed. Those cutbacks notwithstanding, MLB was well received because the gameplay was solid and the presentation was still snazzy overall.
  • Pros: Beautiful graphics and seamless broadcast-style presentation, Commentary is a joy to listen to, Batting and pitching feel like the real thing, Season and career modes span multiple seasons, Online play is smoother and now includes buddy lists and leaderboards
  • Cons: Season mode not as comprehensive as PS2 game’s franchise mode, No player- or roster-editing functions of any kind
