Had a great time creating a player, way more fast-paced than a standard baseball sim obviously, and easy to get the hang of pretty quickly. Personally, I think the players oculd be a little more detailed, graphic-wise...and it would be cool if you could make a big fat dude as your rookie instead of a juiced up guy.
This game is as much fun as a baseball game gets! Fantastic over the top plays, blistering pitches, and gravity defying homeruns make for a fast-paced, easy to pick-up-and-play game. While this game is not ground-breaking in any respect, it manages to satisfy in just about every meaningful category. Every year I buy the latest baseball sim and end up trading it in a week later because the games are simply not very fun; I am yet to have that problem with The Bigs. This is a nice break from conventional sports simulators yet the game has enough depth and variety to warrant hours of your time. Definitely give this game a try whether you are a baseball fan or not.
