Mario Super Sluggers review

 

Mario Super Sluggers is a Mario-themed version of the Wii Sports baseball minigame. Alas, unlike that popular game that showed off the Wii Remote's capabilities, Super Sluggers is a promising prospect that falls just short of making it to the big leagues.

Mario Super Sluggers does take good advantage of the Mario licence but it fails with faulty controls and poorly implemented concepts. It's an uneven and often times frustrating title that doesn't come close to matching the zany over-the-top fun of...

Namco Bandai strikes out with this halfhearted baseball game.

Mario Super Sluggers

 

It's not another Mario sports gem, but Mario Super Sluggers still has a rough, unpolished appeal.

Fun multiplayer arcade baseball action ; The Mario gang's all here ; Kid-friendly baseball adventure mode

Less challenging, complex, and pretty than its Gamecube predecessor ; Lousy camera makes single-player pitching unpleasant ; No good alternative to motion controls ; Nonsensical post-game stats

Mario Super Sluggers (Wii) review

 

Mario takes to the baseball field with dozens of friends, relatives and enemies

Mario Super Sluggers oozes the kind of kinetic gameplay and light-hearted fun that the Wii was built for.

Mario Super Sluggers (Nintendo)

 

Huge roster of Nintendo characters, tonnes of minigames and extra modes, Toy Box mode is fun.

Poorly implemented controls, too many game-breaking moves, Challenge mode gets repetitive.

Poor controls, frustrating gameplay and a repetitive single-player mode mean it's three strikes and you're out for Mario and his friends.

Kirby: Super Star Ultra

 

Kirby has had his ups and downs in his video game career, but many of his peaks happen in games that eschew his traditional platforming gameplay – most notably Kirby Canvas Curse, Kirby\'s Dream Course, and Kirby Tilt n\' Tumble. The reason for...

Mario Super Sluggers

 

Mario baseball on the Wii should have been a sure thing. Take one part Wii Sports baseball and one part Mario Superstar Baseball, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, and rake in the cash. Sadly, what we got was a less challenging version of Mario...

Fun in multiplayer

uninspired arenas, bad pitching camera, no good conventional control scheme

Mario Super Sluggers for Wii

 

Too casual and shoddy to be called a video game

The only thing amusing about the experience is the multiplayer component, which of course, can be enjoyed with help of a few friends. Having said that, the SP component is nothing short of terrible. There is absolutely no reason on earth for me to...

Mario Super Sluggers

 

A few years back, Namco-Bandai stepped up to the plate and delivered what may not have been a Home Run, but was certainly a fun and engaging little baseball game. "Mario Superstars Baseball" was brought to the Gamecube back in 2005, and it was a fair...

Tons of unlockable characters ; Three control types make it easy for everyone to pick up and play ; Chock full o'Mario goodness

If you’ve already played the Gamecube version, this isn't much of a step up ; Motion controls can be finnicky ; Most of the minigames are throw aways

Most of the minigames are throw aways

Mario Super Sluggers review for the WII

 

Throwing Bullet Bills never looked so easy.

Clever, fun mayhem; Simple, pick-up-and-play controls; Clean art style

Not really close to a baseball simulation; Lacks depth and complexity
