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: 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.
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.
