One of my favorite additions is that they've finally allowed wild pitches/passed balls which can dramatically change the outcome of the game (just like real life.) I'm also pleased that the new Washington Nationals and their stadium have been included, in past games 989 Sports hasn't always been as up to date as they should've been.
I'm disappointed that Vin Scully is not part of the announcing team any more and Dave Campbell is as boring as ever. The commentary repeats way too often, there needs to a wider range of comments during the game.
Animation has been improved, errors actually HAPPEN this time out but the injuries still aren't quite as realistic. Some of my players had to leave the game but are never put on the disabled list. I wish they would be so that I'd be pressed to make smart roster moves to compensate.
I've only played about half the season so far and unfortunately, I will have to confirm what other reviews have said so far, the game WILL FREEZE at times usually from the 8th inning on. Once the game froze after I had beaten the team I was playing! It's very frustrating to come back in the bottom of the 9th inning to lead the game only to have it freeze up and you have to replay it again. Sony & 989 Sports needs to fix this problem and offer a replacement to all of us who bought the game as soon as possible.
So, other than the freezing issue (which while not happening constantly, it happens enough to anger you) this is the best MLB entry yet.
This game is the true heir to the High Heat series. If you want arcade style, slow paced, unrealistic games than MVP and ESPN are for you. If you want 3-2, 5-1, 7-4 scored games during the season with realistic stats, than MLB is your choice. Now for the good, the bad and the ugly.
The good: Realistic gameplay!! Newspaper like box scores! String up your cleats for a 162 game ride with your fav team and let's roll. Bet ya you don't have a player or team touch any of the real all-time records as you shouldn't. Bet ya you do have fun chasing 20 wins with your ace, 40 HR and 100 RBIs with your slugger.
The bad: The pitching meter, yikes! It's like MVP's, but with no directional control before the pitch. This could use some work for next years edition.
The ugly: The base running. I still haven't figured this out, will report back when I do.
Overall: This game pummels MVP and ESPN. It's worth the $40 and then some. I blew $90 on baseball games this year when all I needed was MLB. This game came out of nowhere literally. 989 sports has been making hertic games for some time, but they finally redeem themselves and have stroked my curiousity. With ESPN out of the way, could 989 be the challenge to the Madden dynasty? We'll see this fall........

MLB2006... it's the best. There is no competition to this game. Don't bother buying another series like MVP. Don't bother buying another year like 2006: The Show or 2007: The Show. Read morePublished on March 11, 2009 by theredwillow
