    Not as good as superstar baseball but this game is still good but can be flawed. Like the gameplay it can lack and the game gets repetitive so its good but flawed.

    Feels fun to play for just the first few hours. Mario makes baseball look insanely fun until the next 4 hours which comes to mind that you'll say, "I want to play something different now." Buy or not, it's still fun for just 4 hours.

    The "story"is pretty short,it doesn't take long to unlock everybody, but it is a fun game to play. Its a typical Mario sports game that is short, simple, but fun to pop in and play. This game has a good character selection to pick the players for your team,not all the characters have special pitches or hits, but it is still good. it can be used with just the Wii remote even though someThe "story"is pretty short,it doesn't take long to unlock everybody, but it is a fun game to play.

The controls are pretty spot on and the game play is great as well. Expand

    The single player mode in Mario Super Sluggers is too short. As well, the gameplay doesn't involve enough baseball games in single player. Instead, there are challenges. Mario Super Sluggers is a decent game for the Wii.

    It's a decent baseball game with good AI and gameplay. The player looking for a more serious baseball game or a perfect Wii Sports replica should look elsewhere. However, it is an enjoyable game ^^

    It isn't quite the game we were hoping for, but taken as another Mario sports game rather than a baseball sim, it's as solid and enjoyable as you'd expect. [JPN Import; Sept 2008, p.52]

    A step back for Wii baseball controls, but enough of a gameplay leap to warrant playing. [Sept 2008, p.70]

    This baseball diamond loses some of its luster with occasionally confusing or clunky play (it's too easy to accidentally pitch or swing prematurely), but the game's simplified approach is great for sports-curious gamers looking to avoid the complexities of a real simulation. [Oct 2008, p.87]
