Set in the diverse environments of 'Baseball Kingdom,' this is a game that is easy to learn and compulsively addictive, but that also can be made to be as challenging as you want it to be. When you are a rookie go on the offensive by swinging the Wii Remote to smack singles, doubles, triples or even home runs; while when playing defense simulating a pitching motion to toss the ball over the plate. As you grow more confident in your skills, you can choose to attach a nunchuck controller while playing defense to control outfielders for an extra challenge. And regardless at what level you play at always remember that Mario Super Sluggers' nine mini-games are always an option. So, when you need a break from organized play, just grab a few friends and take the mound in a pitching challenge or swing for the fences in the home run derby. In addition, since Mario Super Sluggers supports up to four players, with enough controllers, you can go two on two in epic battles. As you traverse the Baseball Kingdom, put together your "all star" team made up of your favorite Nintendo characters including the games five captains. Each of these has different abilities and temperament making them as valuable as they are difficult in the right or wrong situation. The result is a take on the American Pastime that you and your family will have a hard time putting down. Multiple Game Modes
Baseball should be a social game, so whether you are by yourself or surrounded by friends, there's a Mario Super Sluggers game for every occasion.
- Challenge: Trek across Baseball Kingdom in this singleplayer. mode. Defeat characters in a variety of baseball-related challenges to persuade them to join your team. Once you've assembled an all-star team for the ages, throw down with the baddest baseballer in town: Bowser! The singleplayer. Challenge Mode is a sports fan's dream.
- Explore the rich and varied landscape of Baseball Kingdom as you gather teammates for your fight against Bowser. From lush tropical jungles to modern urban landscapes, each area of the kingdom is a new experience.
- Like high-powered free agents, the characters in Mario Super Sluggers won't join just any old team-they want to play for a winner. When you find a new character, he or she will test your skills on the field. Only by besting them in hitting, pitching and fielding contests can you get them to join your side.
- In Challenge Mode, you can control one of five captains, each with personal special powers. Yoshi can jump through manholes, Wario has the power of magnetism and Donkey Kong can climb vines and shatter barrels.
- Exhibition: Hit the field and try your luck with a team of your choice. You can play against either the computer or up to three other players.
- Mini-game: Challenge yourself or take on up to three other players in nine mini-games. From home run contests to pitching duels, you'll have more fun than a rookie at his first spring training.
- Toy Field: Battle against three other players in a hitting and fielding extravaganza. You can set your turn limit and the skill level of your computer opponents, or just play against friends.
- Training: Learn the ropes in an extensive tutorial mode.
Mario Super Sluggers isn't your typical baseball game. From special moves to obstacle-filled stadiums, there's always something new around the corner for players on the field to deal with. Just a few of the goodies you'll find out on it's fields of play are:
- Special Moves: All of the captains have unique Star Skills that allow them to perform special moves while pitching or batting. Mario can turn his fastball into a fireball, Daisy can create a flower garden in the outfield and Luigi can turn infield hits into a raging tornado. Non-captains can also use Star Skills to put a little extra mustard on hits or pitches.
- Chemistry: Just as in real sports, certain characters in Mario Super Sluggers have a special connection on the field. Known as chemistry, this connection allows players to make spectacular leaping catches, gun down speedy base runners and use items to interfere with fielders.
- Stadiums: There are nine unique stadiums in the game, everything from an ice-filled castle to an urban cityscape. Many stadiums can be accessed at both day and night, allowing you to play a doubleheader under the lights.
- Wii Nunchuk: Experienced gamers can also attach the Nunchuk controller for a more advanced gaming experience.

On to the review, I really liked the Gamecube version. The game had endurance in it, still play it. Super Slugger doesn't. The Wii-ness of the game is simple, but fulfilling enough. Throwing, running, batting are well done. I should say base running takes some time to get used to. Their choice of how to control base runners is logical, however, not necessarily how you will be used to controlling base runners. Also in Toy Field, playing aggressively is a little different as well.. not as logical. You need to press B to hit a person. In other games a simple nunchuck shake would do that. Don't know why they went that route.
The big disappointment from a single player perspective is the Challenge portion of the game. The "Challenge" portion of the game is quite juvenile and lacks any desire to continue on with it, once beaten (and it is real easy to beat). The Challenge seems more interested in training you into how to play the game (they already have well done tutorials) than for you to actually play a game. You only play Bowser's and Bowser Jr's team, instead of a bunch of teams as with the Gamecube game. You run around, do remedial tasks and even a little puzzle solving in order to make your team grow instead of earning players as per the Gamecube version.
The Mini-games play well. Some changes from the old Gamecube version mini-games help make this game familiar, but unique. Toy Field is rebuilt and different (would have been nice to have the classic Toy Field as well), but certainly fun. You can play with teams of 2 if you like. The game play in Toy Field is much more straight forward than in the Baseball game itself.Read more ›
The graphics are so GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!
It also has so many different features that I want YOU to see them for yourself!!!!!!!! (My first review)
MLB 2K9 7.4 (no online mode so I rated it lower)
MLB 2k8 7.5
MLB Power Pros 8.4
MLB Power Pros 2008 8.5
The Bigs 7.2
Mario Super Sluggers 8.0
-If you want pure baseball with Wii motion controls-MLB 2K8 or 2K9 (neither have online and 2K8 sells for a lot cheaper, so if you do not need the most up to date rosters get 2K8)
-If you want a deep baseball game with classic controls and RPG elements get MLB Power Pros, this also has Mii support and Wii motion controls for exhibition (this is good if you want your Mii's playing in MLB ballparks)
-If you want arcade, over the top baseball with real players get The Bigs (controls are a little hard to figure out)
-If you want arcade baseball, with good controls and crazy extras get Mario Sluggers
I played the Gamecube version for a long time and have been really looking forward to this one. It did not disappoint. Similar to the previous version, but with enough differences to make it it's own game.
The main part of the game is very Mario Party like with a twist. A lot of the mini games being short baseball challenges. So if you like the Mario Party games this is a good one for you even if you don't like baseball.
The controls take a little bit to get used to and like with the other motion control games before it, sometime you get the controller reading a motion you did not make like swinging too early. But nothing you can't get used to.
Mario Super Sluggers for the Nintendo Wii, brings in the well-rounded success that showed with Mario Superstar Baseball from the Gamecube on the Wii. This time around, it is a bit more exciting, as you play with your favorite Mario characters past and present to a baseball universe that is exciting and brings in the home run. In the game, there are many modes to master, including the all-new challenge mode, which expands well from the Gamecube original, where you can unlock all your favorite characters, as well as brand new stadiums to master you home runs including the all new-expanded Toy Field, the delightful Yoshi Park, which Yoshi made in the style of a cute amusement park, and the nightlife of casinos and Las Vegas at the new Wario City stadium.
The graphics for the game are very well-rendered within each one of the levels, and provides a new level of challenges and moves to master, including the all-new buddy jump, where you control the outfielders in the game by making a special over the top leap that can even rob the most powerful hitters a high-flying home run.Read more ›
