  1. I have been a fan of the Slugfest titles from the very beginning, but always wished the games were a bit less ridiculous. The Bigs 2 is that game I was looking for – one that amps up the action without going overboard.
  2. It’s our favorite baseball game of the season, even if it’s really just an action game dressed up in pinstripes.

    It’s a great party game and a lot of fun with friends, and would be a great deal of fun for a baseball-savvy gamer or someone looking to dip their toes into an arcade-style sports title.

    The Bigs 2 on Wii isn’t a bad game, it just isn’t nearly as exciting or fun as its cousins on PS3 and Xbox 360. Many of the features – Big Heat, Big Slam, wheelhouse zones, legendary catches – are still intact, but it was clearly a rough conversion to Wii controls.
  5. Like a middling baseball team, The Bigs 2 provides a fun diversion for those lazy Sunday afternoons, but it's unlikely to hold your attention all summer. [Aug 2009, p.90]

    Great game, with tons of improvements on the already incredible arcade style baseball game. One of the few games I would consider worth the 60 bucks.
