Nintendo Wii game review: Mario Strikers Charged


18th, June 2007


Picture%201.pngThis is the sequel to the eminently playable Mario Smash Football on the Nintendo GameCube and it will be one of the first ever Wii games to be fully playable online. Mario and co take to the pitch for some frantic five-a-side action, with loads of special moves galore and Mario Kart-style power-ups. For example, each captain has his or her own set of skills and super abilities, as well as the ability to perform special shots called Mega Strikes, where the iron ball splits into five balls and flies at the goal. The defending player must use the Wii Remote to target and aim at and shoot these balls out of the air before conceding a goal.
Overall, this is a hugely enjoyable game with the emphasis on pure fun rather than the serious simulation striven for by game series like Konami’s PES. The game comes into its own for multiplayer action and the online functionality is a real bonus for Wii owners. Mario Strikers Charged comes highly recommended. BUY IT

    This smells like shameless advertorial. Shame on you, Pies.
    Needless to say I’ve already bought this game and enjoy it muchly.

    This game UK only? I think so but can’t seem to find any definitive info on the question.
