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.
