MLB SlugFest 2006 review

  • Trick pitches are a delight
  • Brutal take-out slides
  • The $20 price tag
  • No online gameplay
  • Sloppy and outdated rosters
  • The ugly front end
There are even occasional (very minor) glitches that'll have you scratching your batting helmet. But it is good for a laugh if you've got 20 minutes on your hands. If you're a number-crunching statistician, you'll be annoyed by the 27 hits per side, per game. You'll also be irritated by the inflated stats. But if you're up for a quick, mad-as-hell, NFL-sprinkled version of America's pastime, you'll have a ball with the flaming players, the Ty Cobb-like take-out slides, the fist-fights, the insane diving catches, the impossible pitches, and strategically using the turbo button to snatch victory from the bitter jaws of defeat. If only it were online!
