Fans redefine the baseball highlight reel by performing dramatic wall grabs, spectacular diving plays, and epic homeruns. Unique and intuitive gameplay controls deliver a new baseball experience, while advanced power-up mechanics add exciting depth with each turn. Turbo gameplay raises the action bar, and culminates in the ultimate batter pitcher power-up duel, where either the pitcher's Big Heat will be the turning point, or the batter’s Power Blast will be the explosive end to the game. In The BIGS, every play is a big play. Each MLB player has been individualized to emphasize their extraordinary athletic attributes. The development team paid great attention to detail to portray a player's face and physical characteristics so baseball fans will easily recognize their favorite players. To deliver the authentic MLB atmosphere, stadium landmarks have been stylized to highlight the unique architecture of each MLB ballpark. Whether it's the glove at San Francisco's AT&T Park resized to mammoth proportions or the left field wall in Boston's Fenway Park made into a real "Green Monster," gamers will be in awe at the grandeur of each stadium in The BIGS.

  1. The Bigs puts tons of great ideas to life to give players a much more fast-paced and turbo induced game of baseball that everyone will surely enjoy. While the fielding and base running could have used a little more fine tuning, the overall package is fun enough for all fans to enjoy a game of baseball without having to labor through hours of gameplay.
  2. Big strikeouts and even bigger homers make The BIGS a very good arcade baseball game.

    The game packs a lot of fast paced action into the title, with dramatic big play moments dominating the gameplay. However, some of the visual hiccups show that this game was easily stretched to its limits when it landed on the PS2.
  4. It’s pretty accessible, with simplistic interfaces and decent eye candy all around. But considering that those arcadey enhancements are what’s supposed to make this game unique, we can’t help but feel casual fans would be better off playing MLB 2K7 on easy difficulty.

    Jeez, I didn't realize that people hated this game so much. I have a great time playing it; it's about as close to the baseballJeez, I didn't realize that people hated this game so much. I have a great time playing it; it's about as close to the baseball equivalent of "NBA Street" as I can imagine without being laughable. It may not be great to sit down and play by yourself, but if you're having friends over, it's a good one. The over-the-top gameplay is great fun. Expand
