4.0 out of 5 stars Best MLB yet BUT...... April 22, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have played every MLB game in the series so far and the 2006 edition is clearly the best. Gameplay is still basically the same but they've made so many improvements and additions that it's much more realistic than ever.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as there is... March 11, 2005
By Rob
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Really, really impressed with this game. The graphics are sweet, and the attention to detail behind every batter, from Sammy's pre-at-bat rituals, to Gary Sheffield's waving of the bat is dead-on. The Stadiums look fantastic. The gameplay is incredibly realistic: for example, if you bust a fastball high-and-tight you can handcuff a hitter and shatter his bat. Plus the fielder's aren't perfect, just like in real baseball. I hit a line drive smash that caremed off the diving third baseman's glove, to the shortstop, who knew to pick the ball up and try to make the out at first, only to throw the ball over the leaping firstbaseman's head---VERY COOL. Career mode is really fun, slogging through the minors and trying to earn playing time. The game gives you room to interact with the manager, allowing you to ask for more playing time if you're performing well, ask to get traded or called up to the next level, or even move up in the order if you're swinging a hot bat. The commentary is some of the most intelligent to date, and the intricacies of the background sound are scary good. My only complaint is the crowds don't suspend my disbelief, if you know what I mean. Other than this, this is one of the best baseball games that has ever come out. HIGHLY recommended...especially once you compare it to ESPN's 2K5, which is a vastly inferior product when held to the light of this gem. BUY IT.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Bought MVP, ESPN and MLB March 21, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Searching for a true baseball sim I bought all three of these games. Why? Because I'm stupid.....No.....Because MVP didn't cut it, neither did ESPN, so...I bought MLB 2006. Third time was a charm for me.

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........

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Basball game of 2005 March 10, 2005
By Dave
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is very impressive. The fielding, pitching, baserunning and hitting are all so smooth. Turning the double play is a thing of beauty and pitchers actually matter. The graphics are even amazing, every player has his stance and facial look. The stadiums are also incredible. Don't believe any bad reviews of this game, you must try it out if you care about a realistic game in any way. I have played MVP and 2k5 and MLB "06 destroys them in graphics, realism and fun. This has all the behind the scenes greatness of Madden "05 but for baseball. This is a must have for any old fashioned baseball purist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best baseball game of all time!
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 more
