    The Bigs has the bells and whistles -- without "MLB SlugFest"-style BS like punch-throwing or loop-de-loop curves. Thank heavens. The cocky presentation is fantastic, it looks great (especially the crowds), it plays great, and it just might make you smarter than a session of "Brain Age."
  2. Big strikeouts and even bigger homers make The BIGS a great arcade baseball game.
  3. The game especially shines when competing head-to-head with friends in ad-hoc mode. On the down side, it loses a great deal of depth with its poor outfield control.
  4. The nature of game lends itself well to the PSP, offering a nice pick-up-play experience that doesn't bog you down with details or an hour worth of 9-innings.
  5. The BIGS is great stuff. It's not imposing -- despite the stature of the players in the game -- it's not overly technical, nor is it terribly shallow. No, the game won't give any baseball sims a run for their money, but it is a blast.
  6. While the PSP version has its share of foibles, it still does a great job of capturing the spirit of the game.

    Multiplayer is where the game takes a big hit when compared to the PSP version of The Show.

    The slowdown doesn’t cripple the game, but it seriously hampers the fast paced action of the title.
  9. It’s pretty accessible, with simplistic interfaces and beautiful 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.

    Only thing missing is the pinball minigame found in the 360 & PS3 versions, but still a solid/fun baseball game.
