The Bigs 2 makes smart enhancements from its predecessor, extending the game's longevity and creating a more satisfying experience. Action is much simpler, highlighting the most exciting and explosive aspects of the sport. Visually, the caricatures of these players look sharp, as does each stadium. Controls are pretty simple to learn. The greatest challenge involves timing pitches and swings of the bat. The new modes extend the long-term playability of the game, with full-season mode as well as additional venues for the challenge Home-Run Pinball.

The one frustrating element are the quick-time events, or challenges that require a player to quickly press a button when prompted. These take shape in the form of Legendary Catches on the field. Often times, these events happen far too fast compared to other games with the same mechanic. Despite this, there are still plenty of reasons to head to The Bigs 2's ballpark.

Online interaction: Players can chat with others during online games so that interaction can be unpredictable. They may hear language you would rather they not hear.
