Mario Sports Mix (Wii)

 

Mario has a difficult life. After a busy day of bopping goombas on the head and throwing fireballs at sentient cacti, the last thing he wants to think about on his off days is the trials and tribulations that go along with platforming. So he has taken...

Sports Mix-Up

Hockey and Basketball are fun, frenzied experiences; plenty of creative arenas to play in; great overall multiplayer action

Volleyball and dodgeball aren?t quite up to snuff; lacks the polish and focus of older, single-sport Mario sports games

Sports Mix is tailor-made for parties and other casual multiplayer experiences. The controls are easy to learn, the mechanics of each game are immediately familiar to anyone who's ever heard of the four sports on offer, and the interface is friendly as...

The mix that needs more of a mix.

Interactive levels; Both online and offline multiplayer; Mini-games are a bonus

if only there were more; Easily becomes repetitive; Need more game types

Mario Sports Mix (Wii) Review

 

Can Square Enix make a good Wii sports game? Find out inside.

Overall, the game offers simplistic fun. However, unless you have a lot of friends regularly over, you'll probably get tired of this game fairly quickly, with only four sports to choose from. If you only own a Wii and need a new title, Sports Mix may...

Mario really needs to take some advice from Brett Favre. Over the years, Mario has starred in more sports games than most professional athletes. From tennis to basketball and even...

Multi-player is fun ; Solid animation

Games all lack depth ; Inconsistent AI ; Character switching

Nintendo's knack for detail is evident here, and all the properties you know and love are well recreated. But where's the commentary? A sports game seems bare without it.

The game is right for cheats though, and I'd love to have a debug mode of sorts, to change a number of factors in the game that effect how both you and your computer controller opponent play. Imagine being able to change each character's special...

Square Enix succeeded in creating another Mario sports title; they just forgot to make it fun. From the perspective of a younger player, they would find the lower difficulties too easy and likely toss the game aside within the first hour of play. For...

Standard Mario arcade fare...with a dose of Final Fantasy?

Mario Sports Mix is not the game I expected. For one thing, despite the standard assortment of pick-up-and-play games, the game's tournament mode ties together in a simple but incredibly bizarre tale. Also, despite the fact that they're not to be found...

You like Mario Sports games? Yeah, they're pretty cool. Does Mario Sports Mix stand up to the other cool Mario sports games of the past? Well....

Mario Sports Mix feels like a weird cross between something like Mario Sluggers and Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games. It doesn't have the depth and appeal of one of the bigger sports game, but it's too barebones to be a cool mini-game party sports...

Mario Sports Mix- Wii

 

Mario Sports Mix is yet another pretty enjoyable entry into the world of Mario Sports games, albeit with a few speed bumps along the way. With familiar “Marioesque” graphics and sound, and some very easy to learn gameplay, anyone who picks up this game...
