I was not sure how a soccer game would translate onto the Wii.
Would we strap the Wiimote to our feet?
It turns out that although the controls are not as interactive as Wii Sports this is still a very fun game. There is a great "training" section which is a ton of fun on its own and it really gets you ready to play.
The online games are really cool too. We got a kick (no pun intended) out of playing with others online.
We ended up adding this to your home collection of game. You should definately check this title out.
I have so much to say about this game but to make this review short i'll make a quick pros. and cons. list.
Pros: -Addictive, fun, and action packed gameplay -Very cool super moves and a fun goaly minigame using the Wii-mote pointer function -A great selection of Nintendo characters From mario to Diddy Kong and even the Pihranna plant! -Wi-fi is very cool and easy to connect too. Plus being able to have a guest play with you on the same Wii online is great -Very good graphics and attention to detail -Arenas are detailed and fun with cows and thunderbolts flying around -Easy to pick up and play -Tackling by flicking the Wii-mote is very satisfying -Gets very hard very fast offering a great challenge -Controlls are easy and fun -Cheats and exta characters are fun to unlock -Passing and shooting is easy
Cons: -No communication online -Forced to play with random people online -Sometimes can be too hard -Hard to tell who is who -Wi-fi can be laggy sometimes
Overall: -An amazing game with decent online and lots of action. Lots of characters but please step up with online and make it easier to see everything that is going on at that time. Otherwise the game is fun and a must buy even if you hate sports games or soccer because it it better than any sports game I have played in a long time!
you will love this game. it has all your favorite captins like Mario,luigi,peach,yoshi, and more. theres been new sidekicks like birdo,hammer bros,boo,dry bones and more but the coolest thing of all is the MEGASTRIKES. it lets you shoot up to 6 balls at once. each captin has a special move for the megastrikes. the tournament is a matchup aganst lots of opponents. when you made it through everything you go agenst someone called dark horse. but it gets hard when you get to the third trophy: the strikers cup. the power-ups are amazing,such as super mario,egg roll, freeze frame,gas mask and more. so you have to try this game get it. have fun playing it
