MLB '06: The Show (PlayStation 2)

 

Sony really turned its MLB franchise around last year by scrapping its old code and starting from scratch to create a wonderfully crafted baseball sim that many considered superior to the competing products put out by EA Sports and 2K Games. Wisely, it...

MLB '06: The Show (PSP)

 

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...

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...

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...

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

Product Specifications

MLB '06 deals and pitches with an all-new Rivalry Mode that allows you to set up and maintain rivalries between multiple gamers, an enhanced and refined Franchise Mode with more intuitive functionality, an all-new Career Spotlight that underscores all your Career Mode accomplishments, an innovative new mini-game in King of the Diamond where pitcher and batter square off in classic playground duels, all-new Game Time Decisions bring more depth to Franchise and Season Modes, and a new 3-man booth that introduces Rex Hudler to Matt Vasgersian and Dave Campbell for unparalleled comprehensive and progressive commentary.
