5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Baseball Game Dec 4 2012

Verified Purchase
Great fun baseball game, not for serious baseball player, look at MLB 2K12 for that, but this one is really fun. Homerun Pinball is the best feature!

This game is a good rental but you would have to be a big fan of baseball games to go and buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Surprise July 6 2007
By Jesse Stirling - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When I was given THE BIGS as a gift, I thought "Oh no, not for me." I am somewhat of a "serious" baseball fan, who looks for deep statistics, simulation modes, and franchise modes in baseball video games. Yet despite the focus on somewhat repetitive arcade action, I find myself immersed in this game. Graphics are stellar, animations superb, and the "pick up and play" nature of the controls yeilds heaps of fun right off the bat.

Nicely done video game. From the menu screens to the min-games, it all feels really polished. About 25 hours of gameplay so far, and not even half done. It is fun to create your own player and build their stats. Step up to the plate with THE BIGS. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun Arcade Style Baseball Experience! July 10 2007
By Zeph Greenwell - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have not had this much fun playing video game baseball ever! The Bigs is simple enough to jump right into but complex enough to make you want to keep playing. It is the perfect balance that baseball game fanatics and people who have never played a single sports game will both enjoy.

The majority of any baseball game is pitching and hitting and this game balances out these two roles very well. When pitching you have a pitch assigned to each button and its as simple as aiming your pitch and releasing the button at the right time. While batting you have two options, a regular hit with the A button and a strong hit with the B button. Batting is all about timing and if you time your hits right you can also control the direction you're hitting with the left thumbstick.

What makes this game great is its use of "turbos". By building up your turbos you can increase your hitting capabilities or your pitching abilities. You can also use them for making amazing defensive plays or to speed up your base running. You get turbos by striking out batters, taking balls, getting hits, making plays, and just about anything else that helps your team. How well you use these turbos can make or break your game.

This game is over-the-top baseball at its best. It did take a little bit for me to adjust to fielding in the game, but once I figured that out I was fine. I have had a lot of fun playing through the rookie challenge and have also played this locally with some of my friends. It is a great game that even the most mild of baseball fans will enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance before you return it...lol July 1 2007
By M. Koch - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
OK, so i bought this game a couple days ago and WOW! I was SOO ready to take it back. i thought to myself, this is the dumbest game i have ever played... well, it was pretty much because i was getting beat soo bad and didnt know any of the controls...lol.

SOOO, i started the main aspect of the game(rookie challenge)and WOW, this game is ADDICTING! Really, once you get the controls down, timing your swings and throwing perfect pitches its GREAT!!!...gaining turbo and using it at the right time is HUGE...

this IS an arcade game, but playing at a more difficult skill level( i started at medium and i win some/loose some) will keep the games interesting and i havent had one game go more than 10 runs so its not like its 25 - 15 every game.

GET THIS GAME! Rent it, buy it, it doesnt matter. If you rent it im 99% sure you will thereafter purchase it...play the rookie challenge.

the ONLY drawback i have is the fans in the stadiums. dont get me wrong, the stadiums are BEAUUUUUUTIFUL! BUT after hitting homeruns, the background looking at the crowd is not that great compared the the player models which are VERY nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Demo is Great! July 17 2007
By Semschy - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I downloaded the demo of The Bigs on Xbox Live last night and loved it! My first time through I got beat 22 to nothing in only 3 innings. Then the second time through I changed the skill level to easy and finally figured out the controls. Now that I can actually hit and the opposition isn't hitting everything I pitch I generally win 2-0 on easy. The first time you power up and crush one out of the park you'll feel like you're invincible! I've never really been a fan of baseball games, but this is one I highly recommend. I'm more of a casual gamer and this game is a blast!
