It would also be criminal to ignore the commentary from Joe Morgan and Jon Miller. The natural banter is indistinguishable from a real game as they make mistakes, comment on the crowd, laugh, and make pausing the game as natural as a commercial break with fan mail trivia. Going for a no-hitter isn't just an accomplishment; it's an event with these two calling the game.
MLB 2K6 is one small step away from the best baseball game you'll ever play. With a tweak to the short-of-broken fielding mechanics, 2K Sports can proudly keep their exclusive license for as long as they want. It's enthralling because they've crafted a baseball game that offers a wide array of control for every aspect of the game. That alone earns it the title it so rightfully deserves.
MLB 2K6 is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB. This game can also be found on: GameCube, PS2, PSP, Xbox.
Note: You've likely heard of widespread problems with MLB 2K6. The game freezes… a lot. These occurrences seem to be random, while turning off the majority of the presentation seems to help. A recent automatic Xbox Live patch seemed to solve the problem, but after one game, it began to happen again. This occurred with exhibition games only during the review process and after the patch. The final review score DOES NOT reflect this since many people have played the game with no issues at all. However, it is something to be aware of.
