  • Summary: [Playable on the Xbox and Xbox 360. Available only at Burger King Restaurants from Nov. 19 through Dec. 24, 2006 for $3.99 and the purchase of a BK Value Meal.] Big Bumpin' looks like a traditional carnival bumper car ride and features familiar Burger King icons, including the Subservient Chicken and Brooke Burke. But, there's a catch – Big Bumpin' arenas come with some big hazards, like surprise saws, bottomless pits and "power up" items that let gamers dole out thundering bumps. With several different types of game play, gamers have a chance to hone their bumper car skills in a variety of challenging scenarios. The game features theme parks, including the "Ice Box," "Broiler," "King's Court," "The Deep" and "Monsoon of Doom," and three modes of play for each – intense four-player and XBOX Live-supported. Easy to learn. Fun to play. Difficult to avoid a major crash. [King Games] Expand

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    The graphics are good, and the game is fun to play especially online.
  4. 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.
  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' 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]
  7. 30
    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.

    Just like real bumper carts, you think you know how the kart is going to act, but then the thing does something unexpected. It is a somewhat decent game, but it just feels wierd. Expand

    This game is probably the healthiest thing they've ever had on their menu. 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. Expand

    One of the better of the series of Burger King games. This one might be worth $3.99. The graphics are quite good for a budget title. If you are to choose one of the three, this would be the one. Expand

    It has fun gameplay and options. It is a joy to play alone, but it is much better with friends. It can be quite addicting for a while but it is not too memorable. Expand

    I'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. Expand

    Any faults in this game can be easily forgiven, considering its ridiculously low price point. But saying that you should put time into this title simply because it's cheap is wrong. Big Bumpin is bad on nearly all accounts, graphics are just bland as death, and are overhwelmed with clunky horrible controls and perfected AI. this game is tough, your AI companions will easily dominate the filed, on any of four various game modes. I recognize the interesting gameplay elements and "thinking outside the box," I can't help but acknowledge the only reason this game would be gaining any attention; because it's unique, gimmicky, and released by Burtger King itself. And that can't help but to be recognized. On price alone, yes, but you get what you pay for, and Big Bumpin is simply abyssmal. Expand

    As if Sneak King weren't bad enough, they release this almost painful experience. 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. Expand
