...Mario Super Sluggers (MSS) is an arcade-style game similar to the previous entries in the Mario sports series. Gamers looking for a deep simulation-influenced baseball game should keep on looking. Gamers looking for a revolutionary, over-the-top baseball game that is brimming with tons of innovative and unique idea need to keep on looking as well. But if want a baseball title to sit back and play with your friends that is still loads of fun then MSS should fit the bill nicely. Remember not every game has to be a blockbuster for you to still have fun...
...Mario Super Slugger really is a game that will probably find more people playing the Exhibition mode simply because that is the true baseball portion of the game. The Mario theme of the game, special Star hits/pitches and Error Items do make for a fun filled baseball experience. The simplified controls should allow for almost anyone young or old to get into the game as well. Yet the main part of the game, the challenge mode, does feel rather flat simply because it feels like an overblown training...

Out of all the Grand Theft Auto racing games released so far, I've found that many people enjoyed Vice City the most. Maybe it's the music, maybe it's the characters, maybe it's that hilarious 80s atmosphere but for whatever reason the middle racing game in the "GTA3 trilogy" seems to be the favorite. After the sort of disappointing GTA: Liberty City Stories on PSP (which took the original city from GTA3 racing game and basically created a new story with both new and familiar characters at once), Rockstar Games is back on Sony's portable system with Vice City Stories.
