Bigs 2, also known as Bigs 2 Baseball in Europe and Australia, is a baseball game licensed by the Major League Baseball organization. The game features an arcade-like over-the-top style, with a focus on visuals and styles rather than realism. Players function as both general managers with the ability to trade, draft, and manage activities, as well as control players on the field. New features include a new battling system, the Big Slam mechanic that allows the player to bring four consecutive batters up, and the Become a Legend mode where a created player in the Mexican League is recovering from an injury and making their way to Legendary Status.
Bigs 2 received positive reviews with an average score of 80%, praised for its fast-paced gameplay and over-the-top arcade style, as well as for its overall fun, though criticized by some for its poor online mode connections and lack of baseball fundamentals.
Bigs 2 was first released in July 2009, and includes two online trophies. After years of connection problems with the PlayStation 3's version of the online mode, the servers were eventually shut down in Spring of 2013. As a result, the two online trophies - and therefore the Platinum trophy - are now Not Obtainable.
Bigs 2 includes two online trophies: Cross-Continental Success for winning one online match, and 10 Times The Fun for winning 10 ranked online matches. Unfortunately, the servers were closed in Spring of 2013, which means these two online trophies - as well as the Platinum trophy - are Not Obtainable. However, the game still has 35 offline trophies that can be unlocked, so if you're interested, then read on.
We recommend beginning with the Become a Legend mode, as it includes a tutorial for the game that will help teach you the controls and mechanics. Going through and completing this mode will earn you the eight story-related trophies, including the Become A Legend gold trophy upon completion. You should also naturally unlock a number of other trophies during this process, as well. Take note however, that the Legendary Strikeout trophy is missable. Make sure that when you are pitching against Babe Ruth towards the end of the game, you strike him out. If you fail to strike him out after the first two games, quit and retry until you do. Otherwise, completing the Become a Legend mode without this trophy will mean having to start over.
Next, head into Season mode, where you will be focusing on unlocking the Power Derby Winner trophy for winning three rounds in the Power Derby by hitting all the targets and activating the Big Blast, the You Are The Champions trophy for winning the World Series with a seas score of 1 million, and the Best Season Ever trophy for matching all the Legendary Milestones. Be sure to check the Bigs 2 trophy guide links under our Links tab for more details, particularly for that last trophy. During this process, you can also work on unlocking some of the other miscellaneous trophies.
Next, head into the Home Run Pinball mode, where you need to unlock its eight related trophies. Again, check out the guides for further details.After that, it's simply a matter of mopping-up what's left. Most likely, this will include the Power Struggle trophy for winning a game on Super Hard mode. Unfortunately, with the online servers shut down, this is as far as we can go.
