The Bigs (PSP) Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: This is one of the better sports titles to grace any handheld in quite some time. If you are a sports fan or baseball fan and have a PSP, this game is great! Even those who dislike simulation sports may enjoy this experience.
  • Pros: Good, arcadey controls., Animations and plays create excitement., Easy pickup game or deep simulation game with extra features.
  • Cons: No cut-off button., Lopsided experience gains in Rookie mode., Baseball realists may not like the over-the-top showboating.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
31 July 2007
  • Excerpt: Almost since its inception, 2K Sports has been pretty passionate about The Bigs and its comparisons against Midway's older franchise: MLB Slugfest. So when 2K said that The Bigs is nothing like Slugfest, and that it still preserved the fundamentals of baseball, I was a little curious as to how exactly The Bigs play.

  • Conclusion: I was surprised to find that 2K Sports actually seemed to have more success this year with their freshman arcade baseball series, which actually comes out as a big success. If you enjoy the occasional arcade sports game, then checking out The Bigs for the PS3 would be a great idea.

The Bigs Review (PS3)

About.com
24 May 2007
  • Conclusion: Some may be turned off by The Bigs supersized players and over-the-top gameplay. But in a post-Balco MLB era the huge players don’t seem all that out of place. What The Bigs does well is bring fun back to the game. While it is more action than strategy oriented, playing games is actually a good time. The same cannot be said of all baseball games. The game does, however, need tweaks to its controls and desperately needs a deeper career mode.
  • Pros: The Bigs brings fun back to baseball games, While gameplay is exaggerated, it is not as absurd as Slugfest, Pitching and batting systems are simple and accessible, Deciding when to use power-ups adds an unexpected layer of strategy, The Bigs brings fun back to baseball games, While gameplay is exaggerated, it is not as absurd as Slugfest, Pitching and batting systems are simple and accessible, Deciding when to use power-ups adds an unexpected layer of strategy
  • Cons: Pitching and batting systems are may be too simple for some, X is mapped to too many commands, you will throw home unintentionally, Base running is unnecessarily complicated, Career mode seems about 5 years behind the times, Pitching and batting systems are may be too simple for some, X is mapped to too many commands, you will throw home unintentionally, Base running is unnecessarily complicated, Career mode seems about 5 years behind the times

Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne

DarkStation
7 December 2003
  • Conclusion: Max Payne 2 is one of those titles that although is very, and in short stays extremely fun throughout the lifespan of the title. Max Payne 2 combines constant action with the ever so fun bullet time effect that really never gets old. The game is one of those titles that combined with the wonderful storyline and excellent Gameplay you will have a lot of fun with this one. If you were a fan of Max Payne then you will definitely be a fan of May Payne 2: Fall of Max Payne.

The BIGS Review

12 March 2007
  • Excerpt: The baseball season is in full swing.  Bats are cracking, balls are flying in the air, and controversy about the home run record are all a part of the summer air.  The season is heating up with the pennant chase tightening up in a few divisions.  Soon the World Series will be upon us to determine the best in Major League Baseball. With the sports season comes a sports game.
