Eurogamer has posted the following reviews:
- Mario Superstar Baseball (GC - 6/10)
"Despite this minor awkwardness, the exhibition mode is the most entertaining facet of Superstar Baseball. The squeaky eccentricity of proceedings leaves you charmed, if a little frustrated with the lack of a truly solid baseball game. It's never a great sports rendition, and nor is it a great arcade-tickling Mario game. The superficiality of the challenges and the clunkiness of general play mean it's a dissatisfying performance for Japan's most popular sport and its most popular plumber. It's a sad conclusion, but Mario really only ever gets to second base."
- Mario Kart DS (DS - 9/10)
"Played alone, it's another satisfying Mario Kart game. I doubt anything will ever dislodge Super Mario Kart from the throne in my mind, but it comes close as the best of the series. But the beauty of Mario Kart DS is that it's really, genuinely practical to play with other people, wirelessly or online. There's not much more to say. Except that if the DS in Mario Kart DS stands for anything, perhaps it's "default state", because it's hard to imagine a time when I'll be reluctant to return to the multiplayer racing - and as long as there are people who feel likewise, it'll be a game that richly rewards anyone's investment."
