What do you get when you take the etiquette out of Major League Baseball? The answer must be something like Midway's MLB SlugFest 2006. The game is designed to offer the fast-paced, exaggerated action that fans of the series have come to expect, including towering home runs, solid tags, and acrobatic circus catches. Real-life teams and players from the MLB are featured, but in this game they've got super-human abilities and winner-take-all attitudes. These Boys of Summer can throw bean balls, execute "On-fire" fielding, or break-up a double-play, Ty Cobb-style, by sliding into second with spikes held high. Three modes of play are available: Season, Playoff, and Challenge. New in this "2006" edition is a create-a-player feature that allows gamers to build their own unique power hitters and ace pitchers.
