~Gameplay: 9 After a few minutes of learning the motions of the game you'll be taking the Rookie Challenge and showin what you got in the majors. The gameplay is EXCELLENT in this game, everything works as smooth as a babies bottom. The only thing that doesn't work so good is the click a flick motion to throw it to the base at which you wish to throw it to(you click A and then fling the wiimote to the desired base(flick right = first, flick up = second, etc.) but with the simple use of the D-pad instead allows you to save yourself from strangling anyone around you.
~Graphics: 9 The Bigs currently has the best graphics I've seen so far for a Wii game. It really captures great detail, from facial expressions to the brutal collisions at home plate 2K sports really made this game worth looking at.
~Sound: 7 I only gave this a 7 because of the depressing sounds during the "Power Blast" feature in the game. It sounds like wind is whistling through a deserted town, and to top it off the entire screen turns blue adding to the little "blue" feeling it makes you, but once you blast it into the foul pole it makes it worth it. Other than that the audio is great.
~Multiplayer: 10 What baseball game isn't great to play with your family and friends? This game is guaranteed to give you hours of fun playing with your closest companions.
~Overall: 9 This is just an overall awesome game. Baseball fan or not you will really enjoy playing The Bigs. It is definitely a MUST rent, and pretty much plan on clicking the "Keep It' button because you will be hooked in no time.

This is one of the best Wii titles yet, especially if your a baseball fan. The graphics are very good. The only weird thing is that the players eyes look a bit hollow. Kind of zombie like, but, no big deal. The game play is great. Their is a bit of a learning curve, but, the game play makes up for it.
Their are a lot of nice aspects to this game. Up to four players can play, making it a great game for a party or with friends. I'll be teaching this game to my kids which will make The Bigs a great family game as well.
This game is defiantly worth a rent, and if you love baseball, you might as well keep it. You'll be hooked.
The Bigs really surprised me. I was really expecting a lot of the same stuff you get from other baseball games, but when me and 3 of my friends started playing, we found the Bigs to be best 2 on 2 baseball game we'd ever played. With one player controlling the runner while the other batted, we found ourselves giving each other signals when we wanted to steal or execute a suicide squeeze. And the added element of the big play meter gives the game an extra level of strategery. The Bigs has my vote for best Baseball video game ever.
