  1. Irregular, often frustrating, boring, not technical enough for simulation addicts, not fun or crazy enough for arcade lovers, despite a few positive aspects The BIGS 2 gives off a lukewarm feeling by taking a middle-of-the-road approach.

    The Bigs was an extremely fun game (except for Home Run Pinball). The Bigs 2 - not so much. It's like they (the developers) looked at allThe Bigs was an extremely fun game (except for Home Run Pinball). The Bigs 2 - not so much. It's like they (the developers) looked at all the things that made The Bigs fun, and then eliminated them in The Bigs 2. Things like getting to choose which path you want to take with your "superstar". You don't get to decide if you want a speed demon or a slugger in the early portions - the path now is fairly linear. Another gripe is the way they programmed the batter's "power-up". It's fairly useless in The Bigs 2. You actually hit better not pulling the trigger and forcing the opposing pitcher to throw a strike. I have no idea why they changed that aspect - it was a fairly stupid decision. (The Big Blast & Big Heat are still fairly good though.) There are going to have to be some seriously good reviews for me to shell out the dough for The Bigs 3. As for The Bigs 2 - my recommendation is to skip it, or at the least buy it at a steep discount. Full Review »

    This game is supposed to be fun, don't take it seriously. The game is fun by yourself or with others.

    They were not lying when they said baseball players use steroids because in the Bigs 2 its more fun have you ever imagine a baseball playerThey were not lying when they said baseball players use steroids because in the Bigs 2 its more fun have you ever imagine a baseball player jumping of the side wall of the baseball field to catch a ball which was intended to be homerun well in the Bigs 2 that is possible! some how but its way fun when it happens. In the game there are three modes number one is the play ball mode which is basically just an exhibition game then there is become a legend mode this lets you make a character from scratch and then watch him improve as you pick his team and play games in America all the way to Japan and Mexico and really it is a very fun mode then there is home run pinball which puts you onto the streets of New York, Japan and many others the rules are your going to have to hit the signs on the buildings (or the buildings themselves) to score points it is a fun mode but not one to waste time with overall the bigs 2 is a very fun time waster and if you enjoy baseball players jumping unrealistically far try it!! i doubt you will be disappointed Full Review »
