    So just my quick opinion here. I'm not a sports guy at all -- I enjoy playing a few select sports with friends (frisbee, baseball, tennis), but I've always hated sports games. Very few have kept me entertained. I see the appeal of, say, Madden '07, but they just didn't do anything for me.

    The only sports games I've ever liked were similar to NBA Jam, where ridiculous things happened as you scored points -- YOU'RE ON FIRE! ... and dunking from half-court!

    So I burned The Bigs to play with my cousin yesterday -- holy cow, what fun. I like the controls, I like the gameplay. It's simple, pretty realistic, but also has that absurdness in the Power Blast and Perfect Pitch that make it fun. Especially with friends or family.

    Anyhow, for what it's worth, I recommend The Bigs for the Wii. Not for the 360, which we tried as well. It wasn't the same.

    agreed!! the game is solid, an 8/10 from me
    the fielding and batting takes a game or two to get used to, but the pitching system is fantastic!
    my first game had about 16 runs in 5 innings, so it is wayyyy more exciting than any 'sim' baseball could be

    I think that's the reason its getting low scores... The reply factor of it, even for someone who LOVES baseball, is pretty minimal. You can get GREAT at the game very quickly, and since there isn't a lot as far as "Season/Franchise" mode, you end up with a simple arcade title that has no online play or replay value.

    The game is a blast to start playing, but once you've logged some hours it loses it's appeal to me.

    Im in the UK so my knowledge of baseball is.... non-existant...

    but me & my buddies love playing this....

    But then when I play Vs the CPU, it kicks my ass every time.

    I put it down to me not understanding the game of baseball properly.

    But I still have a blast!

    For hitting a homerum just hold the stick on the nunchuk forward and hold the "A" button down when taking a swing. At least, that does it for me. But not all the time though.
