Yes, it's about time, but a sequel to an already great game has come. Mario Super Sluggers is just as fun, just as beautiful, and just as great as the first game. There are many more characters in the game, such as Tiny Kong, K. Rool, Kritter, Funky Kong, and more!

Mario and his friends visit a baseball island to play baseball against each other. While the multiplayer might seem to be the only interesting thing, the 1p mode has been turned into an adventure mode. It's way more fun than MSB's, and has an rpg element to it. You'll need to solve puzzles with each unique captain in a game, and there are many rewards and treasures in the game for you in the process. Collect as many teammates as you can for more fun.

However, the adventure mode missions are too easy and short. For instance, one mode simply has you hitting a sacrifice fly to score a runner. When you do, you'll not only realize that it was easy, but you only had to do it once. This gets really annoying, since the missions lack a challenging detail for older gamers.

Graphically, the game looks better than the first. It's perfect Wii graphics are polished with great movements and clunkyless detail. The music is cool, but Lakitu is annoying. Whenever he says "ball", "Strike", "Safe", and "That's the ballgame", he sounds like a deaf tone italian, and sometimes he doesn't even say what's on the screen completely. It's a big shame they had to change his voice into a scratchy nose picky one.

Overall, Mario Super Sluggers is a great sequel to Mario Superstar Baseball, and easily the best baseball game you'll find on the wii. It's great graphics, 1p mode, music, new powerups, and boatload of characters make it a must have for any Wii collector.
