The Wifi game that we have all been hoping for.

Okay, so Pokemon Battle Revolution was really the "first" wifi game. But for people like me who didn't play that, this was our first chance to see what the Wii has to offer for wifi game play. It could not be better. There is no lag whatsoever and you can't even tell you are playing people across the country! It feels as if you're playing against a friend in the same room. Similarly to the DS, you can make a friends list and play against your friends, or you can play against anyone. You can even play 2 on 2 wifi, if you have a friend playing along with you. My only gripe is that you need to use ANOTHER friend code for Mario Strikers, you cannot use your consoles code.

Now regarding one player mode. You play against other characters and you make a team. I don't want to get into too much detail, because I don't want to ruin it from anyone, but heres the basics. You select one captain for your team, that has a special power that allows shooting up to 6 balls at once. You also select 3 other characters on your team who have their own very special powers. It ranges from throwing hammers to teleporting into the goal post! You can unlock new characters by beating certain characters in one player mode, and you can use these characters online.

If this doesn't seem like the best game you could think of for a early on wifi game, I don't know what is.

Oh, and don't worry about how easy it is to play, there is a tutorial mode which shows you everything from running around and shooting to using special powers. They really made it fluid to play with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, you don't even feel like your using a controller. It feels like you are IN the game.

I give it a 10/10. I bought it the day it came out, didn't even need to rent it. I knew it would be good. This is a game that you should buy, it is worth it. It has great replay value.

Got this game for my son and ended up playing it as much as him. Graphics are not too shabby either on my samsung hd. Good mulitplayer game. Compelling enough to keep hardcore gamers satisfied. Controls simple enough to give the most casual of gamers a decent gaming experience.

This is one of the best Wii games out right now. The online play is awsome and only lags a little when the other person has slow wifi, but this hardly ever happens. It is also very easy to start playing an online match. There controls feel great on the Wii and use the pointer and motion sensor just enough for a game like this.
