  • User Rating 6.9

    -Rip off- released in 2006 for $40 with 2004 rosters!!! COMPLETLY out of date unless u can spend $100's to go online.

    Rated on July 16, 2006 by DerekJeter2007

    This game is a big rip off. Gameplay- Not very good. The ball moves WAY to fast so you can hit it to the wall and the fastest player on your team will have to slide to attept to be safe at 2nd. T...

    Shouldn't be labeled 2006

    Rated on August 02, 2006 by silicon_requiem

    I read the review here and was convinced this was the MLB game to play for 2006. I have been a fan of the 2K series up until the most recent addition, which was glitzy and extremely buggy and hardly ...

    Most realistic baseball game on the market.

    Rated on March 10, 2005 by bguy9

    This baseball game reminds me much of the ASB series, in some instances it looks exactly like it. That is why I like this game so much, I was an all star baseball fan, and now im an MLB fan, and I'm ...

    The closest thing to baseball on a console, yet. The dynasty mode is extremely deep and gameplay is absorbing.

    Rated on June 11, 2005 by AndyTSJ

    989 enter the arena of sports videogames without the best of reputations so I was pleasantly surprised to check out some of the video clips on Gamespot before the game was released. The thing that str...

    MLB 2006 is a solid entry this year, but still falls short of MVP Baseball 2005.

    Rated on March 14, 2005 by BL1NDS1DE

    In the race for supremacy in the baseball game world, EA has ruled for the past few years. That's why it was such a shocker last year when 989 released a competent baseball title that actually challe...

    MLB 2006 delivers exactly what fans of franchise mode want with only a few minor complaints.

    Rated on March 28, 2006 by L33tBudDha

    If you're a fan of sports games that involve spending hours of poking through franchise mode features before you ever take the field then you will love MLB 2006 from 989 Studios. The first thing I ...

    Finally a baseball game with depth. I bought a PS2 for this game 2 months ago and its still the only game I have for it.

    Rated on May 06, 2005 by Grizpin

    The official reviews for the game are what sold me on buying the PS2 just for this game. The fact the game is the deepest sim game this year was reason enough to buy it. I never expected it to be this...
