    The best part of the game is really Toy Field, and the CPUs are cheap in that mode. Mini-games suck. Superstar status is IMPOSSIBLE to get for some characters (especially when those slow characters have to "Steal a Base!").

    This installment in Nintendo's campain to have Mario play every sport in existence is actually pretty good. Hitting takes some degree of skill, and fielding is fun when your doing it :) That is, its way too easy to hit fly balls, so expect to be extremely frustrated at times. Power hits are a nice addition to the game, and not nearly as annoying as they were in Mario Power Tennis.

Overall, this is by far the most difficult game in the "Mario Sports" series, but also extremely fun most of the time. Now when is "Mario Water Polo" coming out? Expand

    Passable, but with little to no depth. Nowhere near as good as Mario Golf was at adding Nintendo fun to an existing pastime.

  1. Sick of the MLB? Let the legendary plumber take your troubles away with this challenging baseball title, complete with the good-old Nintendo charm.
  2. The game contains all the elements to expect from a Ninty sport title; colourful graphics, classic Nintendo tunes and characters, addictive gameplay and simple fun.

    The controls and performance are too unreliable for non-baseball fans to make this a hit a la Mario Kart, and true fans just won't be satisfied by the troublesome fielding.
