MLB Sony PSP Review


Playing against a friend through Wi-Fi is a blast

The AI may be a bit too difficult for some rookie players

Making a good portable baseball game is rather tricky, as there's a lot you have to consider in order to make it a successful foray. For instance, presentation is utterly key. It's one thing to have solid batting and pitching, but if you don't have...

Expert review by : David Hinkle (



989 hasn't really been known throughout the gaming industry as a top-notch sports studio. Just about all of their sports titles haven't held up to the likes of EA, or any other sports studio for that matter. Even with a head full of cynicism going in,...

Graphics ; Control ; Commentary ; Multiplayer

Lack of Dynasty mode ; Lack of Create-A mode(s) ; Slight frame rate dips during multiplayer

EA has some stiff competition on the PSP.

With the debut of the PSP, Sony definitely wanted to make an impression on athletic fans that its handheld could fulfill their competitive drive. Although the basketball and hockey franchises from 989 Sports were decent translations from their console...

Sure, the game doesn't have a Franchise mode, a create-a-character Career mode or some of the other features of its console version. But what it does have is an extremely solid amount of gameplay supported by two well-developed offensive and defensive...

Sony supports their handheld with a solid baseball title.

MLB for the PSP offers a basic array of game play modes that will keep you occupied for a good solid season. You have exhibition, online, and season mode. The season mode is quite impressive and still allows you to monitor year-end awards, All Star...

The PSP's first baseball title sets the bar high for the competition, and is sure to score a home run with sports fans everywhere.

Crisp graphics and sound; great in-game commentary

Some minor online glitches persist; controls have a learning curve for newer players

MLB review for the PSP


A shallow hit.

MLB does a great job of mimicking MLB 2006's look and feel. For forty bucks you can hop on a bus and play a relatively entertaining game of baseball complete with mound visits, stolen bases, and drag bunts. The missing career modes and broken online...

The flowers are blooming, the sun is beginning to shine, and already baseball has more controversy than the Michael Jackson trial. Well, maybe not,

MLB 2006 is not perfect, but it’s a darn good baseball game. The career mode is a great addition to the series and the gameplay is definitely picking up some steam. No longer is 989 trailing in the baseball race as all of these games are really...

We step up to the plate to take a swing at Sony's first portable baseball effort.

Once our resident sports dork gets his hands on some final code, we'll have a proper review for you, but at the very least, it's looking like Sony's baseball effort is doing the PSP proud, and should be a welcome addition to the launch lineup --...

MLB PlayStation Portable Review


The best baseball game on handheld.

MLB may not be the perfect baseball game, but it is without a doubt the greatest offering we've ever seen on a handheld and that's saying a lot. If you're a fan of baseball, there's definitely something you will appreciate about taking this one on the...
