This is basically baseball on steroids. The baseball players are realer then life. It's just what you would dream about if your favorite baseball player was a super hero. The graphics are amazing, and the stadium detail is life like. What is a lot of fun, is you have this Power Bar, which once you fill up (after making amazing grabs, strikeouts, sweet double plays) lest you go all out. It doesn't matter if your the pitcher, or the batter you can use this mode. It your a hitter you can CRUSH the ball into the TV Screens, or the foul polls. If your the pitcher, then you can have blistering fastballs which can go up to 115 m.p.h. But it really gets interesting when the hitter and the pitcher are both engaged in this mode. I also love the game mode, pinball which places you in downtown Times Square where you get to pick any player off any team and hit the ball into basically anything you want to. Anyone can play this game with it's simple game play.
Not a bad game! The graphics are pretty darn good. Basically this game is like NBA Jam but of course as a baseball game. One game play option is the rookie challange. Basically build up your players skills through completing 5 inning games, senerio challenges, and stat challenges. Impressive features include power swing and power pitch. On the power swing, lets just say you hit anything out of the park. And on the pitcher power, basically you are going to blow every pitch by the compition! And the last plus side of the game is the Pinball Homerun game. Lets just say you are downtown at Times Square with all the pretty lights, and you get to destroy everything.
Besides the power ups, the bigs fails to deliver true arcade experience. The rookie challenge is incomplete and no functioning seasson or franchise mode adds insult to injury. The only good thing is that the players look like a super buff Barry Bonds!
