Expert Review

Game Freaks 365
14 September 2009
  • Excerpt: If you are like me, you firmly believe that sports games have gone the way of the World War II first person shooter: way too many of them, with too little variation. Enter The Bigs 2, a fast paced arcade-styled baseball game with a pretty promising concept, but a less than stellar delivery. Unfortunately, this game will be pushed back into my memory, only to be brought up when a customer asks me about it at my "real life" job.

Fun, aggressive arcade version of pro baseball.

Common Sense Media
23 August 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this is an arcade version of professional baseball involving a simpler style of play. The action is more outlandish compared to other baseball simulations, and at times, also more aggressive.  For example, baserunners can slam into catchers to jar the ball loose and score a run. Players can also compete online, a feature Common Sense Media does not recommend to anyone under the age of 12.

The Bigs 2 (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
8 August 2009
  • Excerpt: In baseball terms, The Bigs 2 for Wii doesn’t exactly knock the ball out of the park, but it’s safe to say it doesn’t strike out either. Like the original, this title focuses on extreme arcade gameplay rather than realistic baseball simulation. It roots much of its gameplay in baseball nuances that feel neither too far-fetched or too realistic.

The Bigs 2

AV Club
13 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Crass, bombastic, ridiculous? Perhaps. Fun? Definitely.
  • Pros: The “Big Slam,” a power-up mode in which you load the bases with rapid-fire singles, then unleash the mother of all dingers.
  • Cons: Your spastic fielders let the opposing team stretch a single into a triple.

The Bigs 2 Review

UGO

  • Excerpt: The Bigs 2 hits store shelves today. I've discussed Home Run Pinball , Pick Up Mode and gameplay . So, instead of rehashing what you've probably (not) read, I'll opt to summarize the main points and tell you why The Bigs 2 is game worth your GameStop Credit. First, multiple game modes offer you different experiences. Head-to-Head gameplay is certainly a focus for The Bigs 2 and the aforementioned modes are just two of the many.
  • Pros: you want your baseball a little less sim-y
  • Cons: rules are rules and baseball is serious business

The BIGS 2

  • Excerpt: The Bigs 2 brings the boys of summer back to life in an entertaining and captivating way that grabs your attention and doesn't let go. In my preview of The Bigs 2, I described the game as "flat out fun at worst and out right addicting at best." After playing the full version I can safely say that, with the signature fast-paced gameplay returning and the addition of new modes like Become a Legend and Season, Bigs 2 stands alone as the sultan of arcade-style swat.

The Bigs: Baseball - Test

Gamefox
13 November 2009
  • Conclusion: The Bigs erfüllt meine Erwartungen zumindest zum großen Teil, was nicht heißt, dass ich den Tiefgang einer Simulation nicht vermisst hätte. Die locker-flockige Arcade-Aktion macht aber Dank der Wii-Steuerung einfach Spaß und das auch ohne Anspruch auf den Realismus einer EA Sports-Simulation. Schon wegen der fehlenden Konkurrenz ist das Spiel trotz einiger kleiner Schwächen ein Pflichttitel für Baseball- und Wii-Fans.
  • Pros: Umfangreiche Nutzung der Wii-Steuerung, Motivierender Challenge-Modus, Packende Stadion-Atmosphäre, Spaßiger Multiplayer-Modus
  • Cons: Keine Liga- oder Saisonmodi, Problematische Nutzung des Nunchuks, Hektische Defensivsteuerung

The Bigs 2

SplashGames
25 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Als jemand, der flie�end Englisch spricht, das Regelwerk des Baseball einigerma�en versteht und bei einem Ligaspiel in den USA immerhin auch mal die Yankees live gesehen hat, dachte ich eigentlich, mir w�rde das Spiel schon irgendwie gut von der Hand gehen, ja sogar gefallen. Aber nach einigen Frust-Momenten der Ratlosigkeit und des schieren Unverm�gens stelle ich resignierend fest, dass The Bigs 2 und ich einfach keine Freunde werden k�nnen.
  • Pros: Offizielle MLB-Kader, Pinball-Modus
  • Cons: Schwerer Einstieg, Absurde Arcade-Features, Unfaire KI, Technisch schwach
