Only one game in five is any good in this five-games-in-one compilation, whose brazen recycling of old content is equal parts embarrassing and cynical.

Despite the package including five sports, their shallow nature means the novelty wears off fast

Mario Sports Superstars is like a coworker everybody hates because they do just enough work to not get fired. It’s not a good game, not by a long shot, but it does just enough right that I can’t in good conscience call it outright bad. What I can call it is a lazy experience, one developed solely for the purpose of selling what are basically Mario-branded Topps cards. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to pour myself another drink.

Mario Sports Superstars should feel like a generous package, but each of the different sports feel lightweight or stripped back, and ultimately a touch forgettable, despite the inherent charm of Mario and his friends.

Mario Sports Superstars need more variety. It becomes monotonous after a few hours of play.

Fun and well done, Mario Sports Supertars is cheerful and funny sports game, although weakened by an excessive copy & paste.

Mario and friends have tried out a number of different sports over the years and the latest struggles to live up to that long legacy. The core gameplay of each of the sports is solid, but it feels like the most basic form of each was plucked from a superior title.

After this it might be high time for Mario to put his sportsing behind him and stick to regaling kids with stories of his adventures, rather than his sporting achievements.
