  1. The BIGS 2 comes through huge. It's still the game that it was meant to be, it's got a season mode and it's still baseball as opposed to a sideshow. The new version is deeper and a little more polished, and that's more than can be said about most sports games.
  2. Bottom line, The Bigs 2 is everything a sequel should be, a game that adds to the previous edition while retaining its magic. Unless you despise unrealistic and arcade style sports, we highly recommend it.

    With easy to learn controls, great arcade gameplay and some fantastic catches, this game should be played by any baseball fan.
  4. Enjoyable arcade-style baseball that is just deep enough to keep you interested and not overwhelmed in the minutia of management.
  5. For fans of arcade-sports games, they'll likely find enjoyment out of this title. For others that are looking for a bit more out of their money, may find themselves disappointed with The Bigs 2.
  6. Though the game does feel a bit unpolished and unbalanced, there's still a lot to enjoy. This franchise has a ton of potential, and we'll be interested to see how it evolves in the coming years
  7. 67
    What we're left with is an unfocused baseball game that neither excels as an arcade experience nor as a baseball game -- it's only an average player in the bigs.

The fast pace and arcade style make it The Bigs 2 is an improvement over the first as well as an overall better game than MLB 09 The Show. The fast pace and arcade style make it more of a video game than a baseball "simulation" and that's a really good thing. Expand
