Most Enjoyable Portable Baseball Game I've Played

MLB 06: The Show is my favorite baseball game I have played on any portable gaming console, also one of the best baseball games on bigger consoles as well. My favorite baseball games are the MLB Slugfest ones and now this MLB 06: The Show is right there with them. The Gameplay is fast with very little wait time, the characters look just like the real players and the replay features are fantastic. The Scenery is clear and highly colorful, the stadiums are very detailed and the music and the announcers are enjoyable. My favorite feature is the Homerun Derby which I play the most, gameplay is fast and uses the entire screen so you get the full benefits of being the batter and hitting the balls out of the park. Next paycheck this is the first game I am purchasing and I highly recommend this to every baseball fan. I am critical of my games being colorful, fast play, realistic and exciting all of which MLB 06: The Show is. Thank you for reading my Review and I hope you play it as well.

This is a game that baseball enthusiasts won't put down. Every game mode provides a different aspect of the game, and the homerun minigames are fun as well. Career mode is as deep as any I have seen, but I have one complaint, in that it may take too long for a player to make it to the majors, and that you cannot control the lineups for your own team, because you aren't the manager. The season mode is fun, and allows you control over everything, including each players salary. The commentating is great, and the three man booth ads another aspect to the game. The presentation, and graphics are unbelievable, and make the game interesting to anyone who puts in front of them. Overall, a great game.

Very Good

Solid baseball game, with some extreme difficulty

Before i get to my rant, i would like to say that this is a solid game for the PSP. The controls are easy to learn and intuitive, especially the pitching , which changes speeds depending upon how many hits or runners on base there have been. The graphics are ok, but they could be better. The play-by play commentary is well done and hardly has mistakes. One problem i did find is with the outfield controls, if a ball is hit more towards right, for example, i expect the right fielder to go get it. Wrong, it ends up being the center fielder, and i run the complete wrong way. another problem is the uneven ai, your team plays like idiots, while the opposing team catches everything that goes near them. This presents my main problem, or annoyance with the game. It is utterly hard at the upper difficulties. I mean Redsocks losing to the Devil Rays hard. Another annoyance is that the game is not very on the go oriented, you cant save a game while playing, and it has some long load times. Aside from that this is a solid baseball game that any fan with a psp should check out
