I picked up Mario Super Sluggers the other day. I *loved* the Superstar Baseball for the Gamecube and figured this would be a good follow-up. Unfortunately, I'm drastically disappointed in it. What I loved about the GC version was the Challenge play - you pick a team, you find new players and most importantly you actually play games. Unless something has completely passed me by, all you do in Super Slugger's challenge play is run around, do short challenges to pick up players, play a 3-inning game against Bowser Jr, then play Bowser for five innings to win the Challenge. Wow. :| Not only were the two ballgames sickingly easy (I beat Jr. 23-0), I can't believe that you don't actually play more traditional baseball games in Challenge mode. The minigames and short challenges don't have a lot of appeal once you've done a couple of them.
