baseball is one sport game that has not evolved well. like many others, baseball games are too much of a simulator/celebrity/franchise impersonator than a game.
...until The Bigs
this is no Tecmo Baseball or Super Baseball 2020, but maybe as good as you're going to get as far as next gen console gaming.
The Bigs pushes the envelope of arcade style sports, (Bigs 2 pushes even more/too much) and gives you an NFL Blitz style experience that is about as quick and visceral as the hand-eye coordination will handle.
There is pretty big learning curve (esp. Bigs 2), and you will notice the interface is very responsive and active. Not a lot of waiting around, and you can skip the intros to players/innings. You can also shut off commentary and music for a raw stadium ambience.
4 player live offline play, and enough bells and whistles to keep you in the game for the shortened inning length (default 5 inning total).
this game is a great 15-30 minute bit of sports immersion, for those who don't spend hours on the tv.
The Bigs offers a lot of gameplay options, there is story mode, home run derby, home run pin ball, and of course there is play now. I would really recommend The Bigs for a great Buy or just rent. i own the bigs for the Ps3 and i was not dissapointed. the Graphics i will give an 8/10, the overall gameplay ill give a 9/10 and the level of fun i had playing it ill give that a 10/10. The overall game itself would deserve a 4/5, there is now The Bigs 2, That is also really fun. So if you like Arcade Style Baseball I would recommend Picking up the BIGS For the PS3, Thank you i hope you enjoyed reading my Review of the Bigs.
