Mario Super Sluggers (Wii)

 

Mario sports games are well known for presenting arcade versions of popular sports that are easy to pick up and play, yet complex enough to satisfy skilled players. Mario Super Sluggers is the progeny of the GameCube's great Mario Superstar Baseball,...

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 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

Mario Super Sluggers Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

The single player game starts the way you would normally expect from a Mario sports game, and there's even an RPG-style overworld to explore where you can do fetch quests and earn some unlockables along the way. Anyway, all the cute and colorful...

You love Mario sports and you have A LOT of money

The Luigi's Mansion-themed baseball field is worth the price of admission, but this is also something enjoyable to play with a few friends

This is where the game falters, which is pretty bad considering it’s all baseball. The hitting game is pretty complicated because of the many alternative ways there are to hit the ball, depending on the way you hold the Wii Remote, as well as the way...

Ok, ok. Here's a shocker for you. No really, you weren't expecting this; I guarantee it! Nintendo (are you ready for this?) just released a sports game...with Mario and friends! I know, I know, it surprised me too when I first heard about it. I mean,...

Mario Super Sluggers is everything you'd expect it would be. The game is a no-brainer in terms of entertainment value for the whole family and it's definitely a title to pick up if you're looking for some relaxed game time with the kids (or parents)....

Super Mario Sluggers Review

 

Casual baseball starring Mario....that guy sure gets around.

Motion control design is nice; AI can give a good challenge at hardest difficulty; fun to play with other people, especially kids

Challenge mode is short and uninspired; motion control sometimes doesn't work as well as it should

Each character has different strengths in categories such as hitting, fielding or pitching. These things do somewhat matter, but in the end this is a rather simple game of baseball with the ability to use attack items and in some cases characters are...

What Mario Super Sluggers lacks in online and single-player, it makes up for with depth, accessibility, and Funky Kong's surfboard.

Full of strategy and gameplay depth ; Fun multiplayer ; Wide variety of characters

Too few single-player options ; No Season mode ; Lack of online play

Would it be a Luma?

Mario Super Sluggers (Wii) Review

 

Mario returns to the diamond for another baseball outing, but this time with the added twist of motion controls! 411's Drew Robbins takes you into the land of poorly designed controls with his review of Mario Super Sluggers on the Nintendo Wii.

After the universally better Mario Strikers Charged, I thought it was safe to assume that this game would be much better than the past iteration. I assumed wrong, and was surprised to find that Mario Super Sluggers is the same game with slightly...

While your mom and your little brother dig Wii Sports' Baseball, I would like to have a little more baseball in my baseball videogame titles. You know, like players with legs and arms. And fieldi...

Mario Super Sluggers

 

Typical of Nintendo, Mario and Co. have gathered yet again to play in some real-world sport but brought their magical mushroom trappings, fantastical power-up razzle-dazzle, and hallucinogenic sense of decor along with them.

As you might surmise, Mario Super Sluggers is a baseball caricature that smashes the confines of sports simulations and goes instead for something more like goofball rather than baseball. Of course, you'd expect nothing less; you'd expect minigames and...
