MLB 2006
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Mar 17, 2005

While it seems that all eyes are on EA Sports and Visual Concept’s baseball game this year, it’s easy to overlook other interesting prospects out there. While MVP Baseball 2005 and MLB 2K5 are near and dear to my heart, it’s the overlooked ballgame that I root for and with good reason. You see, while MLB 2005 didn’t exactly light our fire last year, MLB 2006 is a game you’ll want standing side by side with those other two ball games. So pull up a lawn chair and see why this year 989 Sports has really outdone themselves. Last year’s attempt was nothing to sneeze at although there seemed as though there was something missing.

4.5 Star Review  IGN.com - Mar 15, 2005

You may think I'm nuts, but MLB 2006 is my favorite baseball game this year. I like it more than MVP, I like it more than 2K5, and more importantly, I like it a hell of a lot more than I originally expected to. In short, it's the game that could finally turn 989's tattered reputation for uncompetitive sports titles all the way around, which is something the last few installments of GameDay always hinted at but never fully delivered. Make no mistake about it, though, MLB 2006 really does deliver -- and does so with a precision and consistency not unlike Brad Radke's 90mph fastball.

4 Star Review   By member Jammerdez1 - Feb 24, 2006   

Strengths: Graphics, Realistic controls, Fast Forward ability

Weakness: Commentary, Freezes every now & then

MLB 2006 us one of the better baseball titles this year and a vast improvement from last year. The number of things that can be customized and adjusted are incredible. There are several different playable modes depending on what you prefer to concentrate on (career mode, franchise mode, etc). This game is all about options and its up to you to decide which ones to use. On top of that, the pitching and batting system is great. Accuracy meters (similar to golf-swing meters) make timing extremely important. If you start doing good, sweet spots start getting bigger. But start messing up on the accuracy and that sweet spot will shrink to the smallest possible spot. Fielding also operates on a similar type of system. Unfortunately, this being a sports title, the commentary gets repetitive fairly quickly. As I do with most other sports titles, I usually just tune out the commentary and enjoy the rest of the sounds and music. If you're into baseball and like variety, this is the title for you. With so many options avaiable, MLB 2006 is a good game for novices and pros alike. There is just so much more to this title than baseball that even a non-baseball fan can find ways to enjoy playing the game.

good game
5 Star Review   By member scootman2006 - Jan 4, 2006   

Strengths: good graphics, awsome in-game ability

Weakness: CPU is way to easy to beat

I really wish i owned this game it is pretty much the best game ever besides NCAA baseball 06. If i owned this game i would do nothing but play it all day. and the real life seasons are better than madden 2006.

5 Star Review     

Strengths: I think the career mode is the awesome.

Weakness: Fan graphics are a little fuzzy.

Career mode is awesome. It is when you pick a team to play spring training for. Then they either cut you, put you in AA, AAA, or the majors. If your in the minors then you need to play well and hope you get called up. You can also do things like request a call up or trade.(though this might effect your reputation) When you play well, you get training hours and that lets you improve your game.
