Excerpt: 2K Sports, the sports publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), announced today that The BIGS™ 2, the sequel to the hit arcade-style Major League Baseball game The BIGS™¸ will be available this summer for the Xbox 360®...
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
Excerpt: Baseball har endnu ikke opnået den store popularitet i Danmark og er i modsætning til amerikansk fodbold stadig forbeholdt en mindre gruppe entutiaster. Af samme grund har baseballspil sandsynligvis en ret lille målgruppe her i landet, men hvis der kan rådes bod på det er det Wii-konsollen med dens bevægelsesfølsomme controller der kan gøre det.
