First of all this game blows away 2k9 and its sad because it is made by the same company...

User Rating: 9 | The Bigs 2 X360
The bigs 2 has one main thing that towers it over MLB 2k9 and that is its own version of Road To The Show... Its not called that but it pratcially is that and its a lot o fun. There are so many fun ways to make crazy catches, throw wild pitches and hit huge bombs makes this game worht buying. Also if you get bored easily by playing sim baseball games this is for you. The bigs is quick and you score a lot of runs and at the same time make great defensive plays. Also the Batter/Pitcher matchups are very interesting...

If you are one who only owns a xbox and not a ps3 then this game is just right for you.

Also the online play is fun and from what I have played so far there is no lag. Also for a ranked game its only 5 innings which im not really a fan of because its a little to fast for 5 inning but maybe they will put out a patch to choose for ranked games.
