The greatest party game, in my opinion, for just slapping together 4 or more people. This game shines in every aspect, but especially in the team aspect and the ability to support any amount of playersif used correctly.
We wouldn’t go as far as to say this is Nintendo-made shovelware, but there's very little that has changed in the three years between "Mario Superstar Baseball" on GCN, and Mario Super Sluggers on Wii.
