Similar to MLB The Bigs, this game will give you a nice sore bicep and wrist.. however both of these games are DEFINATELY fun. You basically just swing the remote around just like a hitter and pitcher would...push some buttons as you go and you are a master.
The single player mode is very fun, where you get to play ball and conquer a bunch of different ballparks. You play little mini games to recruit teammates along your baseball conquest for Wii immortality. It's easy and fun. Of course, the point of the game is to defeat Bowser and his little brat kid from ruining the island of super cool classic Nintendo ballparks.
Multi player modes are also a blast; allowing tons of room for customization and different playing options, characters, ballparks, etc.
The controls are cake and take only a few minutes to get used to. There are also different control schemes, one utilizing the nunchuk and one not. I prefer the chuk because it can allow to you to be lazier. Plus, its a frickin' nunchuk.
All in all, this is a great rent and/or purchase to add to your Wii video game arsenal. It has a ton of replay value and multi player capabilities. So sit down, grab some friends (if you have any), and swing away.
The title says it all! You get all the modes you played in the first Mario baseball game, and nothing new! Not even online! The Wii controls are ok most of the time, but sometimes they feel tacked on. And there is no GC or CC support at all! Why? Aw well. It's still fun with friends and a great rentle.So knock your self out. :P
