Major League Baseball 2K6 Hands On Impressions (360)

Aaron Holbert recently had an opportunity to play a beta version of Major League Baseball 2K6 for the Xbox 360. Make sure you read his thoughts on the game and head on over to the Forums, where he is answering questions about it.
"Last week, I had the opportunity to visit with Anthony Chau of 2K Sports and preview a beta version of MLB 2K6. As with NBA 2K6 and College Hoops 2K6, MLB 2K6 has all of the features that are currently found in the Xbox and PS2 releases. The Swing Stick is pretty fun once you get the hang of it. It reminds me of Segaís World Series coin-op game that featured a bat that you pulled back during the pitcherís windup and released once the ball gets closer to the plate. The presentation was always a strong suit of this series, and this year appears to be no different. The new Inside Edge feature is also found in this version and is a welcome addition. This feature adds a new managerial and scouting element to this yearís game that wasnít present in previous versions of this series.

As most of you know, the majority of the changes in the Xbox 360 version are graphical. The stadiums are beautiful and the crowd is fully three-dimensional. The crowd moves up and down the aisles, and pockets of the crowd will reach for foul balls when one enters their section. The same uniform movements found in the 2K Sports basketball games are also found in MLB 2K6, although they are toned down. 2K Sports also signed an apparel deal with Rawlings, and MLB 2K6 features many ballplayers' authentic equipment. The actual gloves of Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez are in the game, among others."
