The Bigs 2
same old same old
this is a good game at first, it looks really good and plays really well but after i played become a legend (the main and pretty much the only mode) for about 2 days it got old. The game becomes really repedative fast. The mini games are all the same and the games start to seem like de ja vu after season one. There is no veriaty in this game each season plays like the last and after you acheive each goal set out for you in the games the game just becomes long and boaring. You only get to play 4 seasons before the game decides its time for you to retire whether you like it or not. Oh and out of nowhere the team you picked to play with can up a trade you without notice. And if you breezy through your 4 MLB seasons and think that cooperstown games will be the same way think again. You get to play with these no name players that come out of nowhere and make it imposible to beat the legends at cooperstown. I would consider testing this game out first before buying even if your a baseball fan.
this is a really good game but the online experience could be better. but overall this is one of my favoraite games
Pretty Good Game
Just bought this game like a week ago and for me its been a pretty good game. It's pretty hard at first and frustrating but once you get the hang of it it'll become way funner. I really like the Pinball Homerun play thats a lot of fun and pretty challenging, but overall its a pretty dope game. I havent not yet played it on LIVE so i can not say how that goes, i think it wont be as good depedning on your connection because the game uses alot of wierd and crazy moves and i would think itll be pretty slow depending on the connection. The rosters are all updated and you can also download the recent MLB roster as well from XBOX Live, but if you like Blitz, NBA street etc thats the kinda of game youll get from this, only in the baseball world. I never played THE BIGS before soo THE BGIS 2 was the first time playing a baseball game like this (not really a big fan of unrealsitc sport games) but well i was impressed.
this game almost meets the very high standards of MLB 10 The Show so thats is pretty good.i almost never play 2K games best this is an exception.the game modes are great but the best game mode by far is Become a Legend.the one bad thing is that your HR will be robbed 40% of the time.
If your a fan of realistic gameplay then this game is not for you this game is for the kid who doesnt know much about baseball. For me I found it fun but I was constantly going back to 2K9. In this game fielding is not normal. You make legendary catches by hitting or holding buttons. I found that in the game the team doesnt really matter like in the 2K baseball games an example would be the Yankees losing to the Brewers. In Become a Legend mode the game is much harder, You are constantly fighing for every last point no matter what team you are facing. And also it is very realistic. Even if you get a line drive to the outfield (depending where you hit it) you will usually end up with a single, Doubles and Triples are pretty rare in this game and an Inside the Park Home Run is almost impossible. All in all if you are a die hard baseball fan get this game.
best baseball game out there
The bigs 2 simply is the best game out there. the other 2k baseball games get so easy, u cnt play them, and this provides a medium challenge. the show is to full of bs (i went 30 mins tryin to get a lead off, and the computer wudnt stop tryin to pick me off even with the meter all the way down).this game is not as serious, and is more geared towards fun. it has an excellent become a legend mode, which im sure uve read about. Homerun pinball, however is very overated. you have like 6 targets, and sometimes ur left to wonder wht targets are there. this game does not use a normal attribute system. it has 5 areas (power swing contact swing speed glove and arm) tht are rated by up to 5 stars, or the player may have a legendary rating. this simplifies the game alot.overall, if u are tired of crappy baseball games, thn give this 1 a try
Great game fun to play!
Ok, this game is fun to play.... I find it more fun then 2k9 and it's fast paced...I like the graphics and flashyness of the game and the Legands in the game are well done...It has taken me a while to complete the game and I think its fun everytime I put it in.... I like the new seasion mode though I wish it kept the League Leaders but it does keep the team players states for the seasion....The home runs in the game are MONSTER SHOTS! To be honest, I find this game more fun then usual baseball games......I would love for 2k to make a Bigs3 and add Minor League teams and a deeper seasion mode........This is a must by if you are true baseball and sports game fan.........You can unlock throwback team unies and even unlock Japan teams......If you love or even like baseball, I would get this game ASAP!
Swing and A Miss!
The Bigs 2 can only be descirbed as a huge failure. For those of you hoping for a different baseball experience(especially unfortunate Xbox 360 owners), be grateful for Major League Baseball. From the first pitch, I could tell the game was a complete disater. For fans who enjoy turbo baseball, being robbed of homeruns, easily hit baseballs, and cartoonish animations, this is the game for you. In fact, Nicktoons MLB is better because at least you can play as cartoons. But to have professional baseball players on this game, its an absolute shame. What is even more disappointing is the Home Run Mode, those who cannot hit the ball once out of three times will be at the end of the game mode immediately. I am not going to sit here and say spend $300 bucks for a Playstation just to get The Show, but pray that Major League Baseball improves(its getting there slowly but surely). The Bigs 2 is just a repacking of the first failed Bigs game. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Don't make the same mistake, you are gonna have to grin and bear it with the baseball games you have.
okay but gets old quick
I bought this game and it was really fun at first with all the turbo and legendary catches and stuff but there was only like 3 different modes season,become a legend and minigames. this game was really fun at first but a lot of people say it was really hard to get the hang of but it was really easy it only took me about a day to get really really good at it. but the game becomes really the same thing over and over again. i beat become a legend mode and after that there was nothing left to do on the game. I got bored of the game after about 3 or 4 days of playing it and i only played about 3 to 4 hours a day so it just gets boreing really quick. what does make you mad sometimes is that you hit a nice perfect single but a stupid legendery catch stops you from getting a single to a stupid out or hitting a nice home run and getting robed but other than that okay game.
I love this game! It is soooo much fun! Great graphics!
