"Fantastic"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Remember Wii Sports. It had Baseball. It was fun but it was a little hard to hit the ball. Well now you can get the bigs, you may be asking is it worth a purchase…the answer is a resounding YES!

This game has great graphics and the gameplay is easy once you figure out the different pitches etc. Batting is done by holding the wiimote and aiming with the nunchuck and then swinging the wiimote. Sounds diffucult? It isnt. Hold the nunchuck at arms length and you will have no problems with it. Holding A increases your hitting power as well.

Fielding is a hit or miss concept though. Too often the players will jump and dive when you havent really moved the nunchuck. However to make your player sprint all you need to do is make a running motion with the nunchuck and wiimote and then throwing to bases is simple. Its the d pad on the wiimote.

Pitching is alot of fun though. Aim with the nunchuck stick and then then hold the wiimote overhead whilst holding A to power up and then release A on the downward throw.

You can also accumulate points by stealing bases, getting three strikes and running to first base which when your meter is full can be used to unleash a monster hit or pitch. Awesome. Fireworks explode when you hit it at glass or buildings : )

This is the best sports game on the wii at the moment in my opinion, dont be fooled by EA's offerings, 2K knows how to make a great sports game.

Takes a bit of getting used to but it is a great game And lots of fun

"Great Fun" Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a must at only $5.00 for any baseball/softball fans. Adults can get tricky with their pitches but the kids can throw and hit just as easily. Great fun for all.

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Children really had fun once they began to get the timing right. A great leveler as adults had ‘issues’ too.

Description

Fans will redefine the baseball highlight reel by performing dramatic wall grabs, spectacular diving plays, and epic homeruns. Unique and intuitive gameplay controls deliver a new baseball experience, while advanced power-up mechanics add exciting depth with each turn. Turbo gameplay raises the action bar to new heights, and culminates in the ultimate batter pitcher power-up duel, where either the pitcher’s Big Heat will be the turning point, or the batter’s Power Blast will be the explosive end to the game. In The BIGS, every play is a big play.

In The BIGS, each MLB player has been individualized to emphasize their extraordinary athletic attributes. The development team paid great attention to detail to portray a player’s face and physical characteristics so baseball fans will easily recognize their favorite players. To deliver the authentic MLB atmosphere, stadium landmarks have been stylized to highlight the unique architecture of each MLB ballpark. Whether it’s the glove at San Francisco’s AT&T Park resized to mammoth proportions or the left field wall in Boston’s Fenway Park made into a real “Green Monster,” gamers will be in awe at the grandeur of each stadium in The BIGS.
