Major League Baseball 2K6 Review
11 March 2010
Conclusion: If I only owned an Xbox 360 and I wanted to play the most current baseball game, would I have a choice? No, I wouldn’t - it’s MLB 2K6 or nothing at all. Having MLB 2K6 as my only Xbox 360 MLB fix is actually a pretty good thing, although I was hoping for better.
Solid play marred by a few strikeouts; for tweens.

Summary: Parents need to know that this baseball game features the full lineup of Major League Baseball players and ballparks. It also includes a smattering of in-game ads, though nowhere near what fans encounter at a real ballpark. The simulation-style gameplay may be a bit complex for younger gamers.
Conclusion: At least they learned from this for future installments. If you want a fun, albeit unrealistic baseball game, go play The BIGS or something. Hell, go buy MLB 2K7 or later. But if you are desperate for a gamerscore boost and aren't afraid to be infurated by crash bugs abound, MLB 2K6 is a decent...

Excerpt: The life of a videogame reviewer seems glamorous: fast cars, beautiful women, and baccarat in Monte Carlo. Reviewing seems like James Bond with 100% less wacky villains wearing razor-edged bowler hats. We sit in the lap of luxury, dispensing our scores like the gods of old.
Excerpt: I can still remember playing my first-ever baseball game. Back in 1986, my parents had bought me a Nintendo Entertainment System. We got Mario with it but shortly after, picked up the original baseball game.
Excerpt: A wild pitch. Last year, baseball gamers were in the enviable position of having too many good options. Did they want to swing at EA’s fastball? Take a crack at 2K’s breaking ball? Or be patient and rock Sony’s skillful change-up?
Pros: Great hitting, Interesting scouting feature, Excellent online content, That feels overburdened, Sloppy delivery, Terrible fielding
Conclusion: Major League Baseball 2K6 is an interesting if flawed baseball game that happens to be available for twenty dollars less on the current-gen systems. If you own either of those, you’d have to be crazy to buy this game for the 360, because all you get for the extra twenty dollars are some...
Pros: Great hitting, Interesting scouting feature, Excellent online content
Cons: That feels overburdened, Sloppy delivery, Terrible fielding, Not next-gen
Summary: Major League Baseball 2K6 is the yearly professional baseball game pushed out by publisher 2K Sports and developer Kush Games. Currently, it is the only baseball game that 360 owners can get, due to 2K gobbling up the MLB license.
