  1. It's very basic and not as compelling as a single-player affair in the long term, but fire this game up with three other players and get the competitive juices flowing and you'll find a fantastic multiplayer party game joyride waiting to suck you in for a good while.
  2. An absolute joy of a game, especially considering it only costs $4 with the purchase of a Value Meal (and plays on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox). The controls can feel a bit slippery at times, especially compared to the overly precise AI, but for a mini-budget game it's easy to forgive.
  3. Runs a close second to Pocketbike Racer for best of the three Burger King games, with bumper car fun for gamers of all ages, on- or offline.

    Big Bumpin' isn't a must own title, but it is a good cheap substitute for some of the weak sauce multiplayer modes we've seen on Xbox Live Arcade lately.
  5. Based on price alone, it wouldn’t be far fetched to assume that the game is a one-trick pony, but surprisingly, there is a nice handful of minigames to test out.
  6. Big Bumpin' might have worked as a part of a large minigame collection, but on its own, it's sort of lame.

    First on the menu is Big Bumpin’, a bumper-car romp through four different game modes that totally sucks if you’re playing with yourself, but loads of fun if you’re playing with a few friends. So Big Bumpin’ is pretty much a metaphor for life in general.

    Surprisingly fun if you have a couple friends to enjoy it with and is definitely worth the bargain price tag. Overall, for what you'd expect from games of this price, we have a pretty decent showing.

    Again the game features multiplayer over Live, but suffers from very few people playing online and is solely populated by prepubescents with limited vocabularies that consist of nothing but insults.

    The graphics are good, and the game is fun to play especially online.

    Fairly forgettable. However, you cannot underestimate the fun it is when you get a few of your buddies together or hop online for some Xbox Live fun. Heck, if Big Bumpin' were offered on the Arcade, it would cost 320 points ($4), making it the cheapest XBLA game you could purchase. For this, I stress that this title is a tremendous value for those looking for some quick achievements and easy (and cheap) gameplay to jump into.
  12. It's like the meals that you buy in order to get the game - not 5-star, but it will fill you up long enough to get you by until the next big thing comes along.
  13. You’ll play it for a few hours, then take it online, play for awhile longer, then you’ll be done with it. It’s fun for the time that it lasts, and will definitely last you longer than the more expensive value meal that you’ll be buying.

    If you can round up three of your buddies who are ready to get their bumper car on, then you'll find more than your money's worth with Big Bumpin', and only that way. The drop-off from multiplayer to single player is vast.
  15. Big Bumpin' is a no frills, arcade-style gaming at its purest. Bumpin' is identical on Xbox and Xbox 360, but the 360 version looks dramatically better and offers online play. [Holiday 2006, p.78]
  16. Big Bumpin’ is probably the most successful of the three Burger King games, if only because it aims so very low.

It's meant to be played with a few friends, though if you really want to, you can play alone, which is a pretty bland time. But again, it's meant for multiplayer, and it does make for a surprisingly entertaining little party game. If your of age and the drinking type, it makes a great drinking game. It's just a simple, fun game, and it controls great. If you get together with friends and play games together, pick it up for $1 at your gamestore. You might actually have fun. Full Review »

For the price, youI've never heard of these games before, and I bought Big Bumpin' for 3 bucks when I randomly saw it at a Burger King. For the price, you definitely get around 3-4 hours of fun with friends before it gets old. The AI is extremely difficult to play against, the graphics are a bit gross, and some of the minigames are quite frustrating. I try to keep in mind that it's a budget title but there are just so many issues. It's fun to play for a laugh, but it's probably not something I'm going to go back to for a long time. Full Review »

While not as bad as Sneak King, that doesn't say much, even for a $3 game. The load times are longer than the actual minigames themselves. The actual gameplay is so boring and motonous. The graphics are Playstation 2 esque, and the controls are pretty jumpy. That said, I found some hints of fun, but is easily diminished by its enormous failures. I suggest that you skip this, or you risk yourself hating Burger King more. I know I did. Full Review »
