MLB 06: The Show


MLB 06: The Show offers sports gaming enthusiast a multitude of baseball simulation gaming options on the Sony PSP, both single player and multiplayer. The single player options include an exhibition mode, quick play, career mode, season mode, king of...

What I really liked about MLB 06: The Show 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...

MLB '06 The Show


Incredibly realistic baseball game could be best ever

Pleasingly realistic ; Tons of gameplay options ; Good graphics

Lacks good analog stick control ; Can be overwhelmingly detailed ; One of only two MLB games this year

Last year, MLB 2005 made baseball both fun and accurate. MLB '06 The Show goes a step further. Well, okay: make that 18 steps further. This is the kind of game where you can set the food prices for the stadium hot-dog stand. Other baseball games over...

MLB '06: The Show - ps2


Truly amazing is how the announcing references prior at-bats and plays within innings, or during side changes. I was completely floored the first time I head the announcer allude to how my early inning double play had failed to stop the opposing team...

MLB '06: The Show


Our baseball pick for the last two years looks to keep a hold of its crown.

The PSP version of The Show has all of the game modes, minus Franchise mode. This is a big disappointment as it would have been nice to be able to connect the PSP and PS2 to interchange Franchise modes so you can continue your experience at home and on...

MLB '06: The Show Review for the PS2


Putting the all in baseball.

Some smart new features; Tons of smart old ones; A complete package

Completely unoriginal, that is; Mediocre graphics

The graphics, on the other hand, are anything but pretty. The textures are uniformly drab and unattractive, covering everything in a ubiquitous coat of visual mediocrity. However, the animations are great and the framerate is solid, so things at least...

MLB ‘06: The Show


When 2K Sports locked up the Major League Baseball license last year in response to EA locking up the NFL license, the “exclusive” deal wasn't quite as rock solid as EA's. When EA locked up the NFL license, they locked out everyone. When 2K Sports...

Multiple-season mode for MLB games makes its handheld debut ; Career mode is nice and realistic, less of a “movie” than their NBA game ; Free, real-world MLB headlines for wireless users is a nice convenience feature ; Unlike some PSP titles, the game...

Graphics are still not up to par

MLB 06 The Show responds to a lot of user-feedback from last year’s version with a bullpen full of new and improved features, making it a legit contender for this year’s pennant race against 2K Sports!

MLB '06: The Show


While many of the PSP's initial sports offerings were shadows of their PS2 selves, MLB managed to capture the look and feel of its console counterpart quite well. What it lacked was game modes. There was no create-a-character Career Mode and no...

MLB '06: The Show for the PSP is a much more complete portable package compared to last year's edition. The core gameplay mechanics remain in tact and the presentation is as solid as ever. Combine that with the addition of several new and improved game...

MLB '06: The Show


Sony stuffs David Ortiz into the PSP and still has room for new modes, more online play, and a chatty commentary booth.

Plays like a champ; two new modes: one for hardcores, one for casual fans; for all intents and purposes, the same game as what's on PS2

Online games are seriously hampered by lag; blast you, analog nub

MLB 06: The Show Sony PSP Review


An abundance of options and special features to toy around with including King of the Diamond

No Rivalry or Franchise mode

There are lots of sports titles available for the PSP, and unfortunately for you and me, most of them are average or just plain suck, but the same cannot be said of Sony's phenomenal MLB series. The first game that launched with the system set a...

MLB '06: The Show Review


Sony's latest PSP baseball game is excellent!

MLB 06 is a fantastic baseball game that's worth purchasing. Sony's done a wonderful job making the sport accessible for hardcore fanatics as well as people like me who only follow the playoffs. 2K Sports' Major League Baseball 2K6 will no doubt give...
