Today is the official release date of MLB: The Bigs 2. While I’ve never personally played the Bigs, I always had the understanding that the game is like NBA Jam for baseball. As a longtime fan of NBA Jam, I gotta say that’s a pretty cool idea for a baseball video game.
The game is out on XBox 360, PS3, and Wii and produced by 2K Sports – the same crew that released MLB 2K9 in March. 2K9 was clearly the less popular option of this year’s main baseball video games, but Bigs doesn’t seem interested in competing with either of those titles.
Early reviews of The Bigs are in, and the game seems to be high on fun and energy, low on realistic gameplay. If you’re into a video game that is sports related and high on entertainment value, this may be the right choice for you.
Below are three of the first reviews we could find on MLB: The Bigs 2, out today:
