    It's easily the Mario Kart of soccer games and that should tell you a lot. Even if you think you're a confirmed soccer hater, Super Mario Strikers just might rock your world.
  2. 90
    The multiplayer more than covers the bases, though, as Strikers will join Super Smash Bros. Melee, the Super Monkey Ball series, and the Mario Party games as one of the 'Cube's best titles for armchair warfare.
  3. A no-brainer as a family purchase... Great stuff.

    This might be one of the only accessible soccer games for people who aren't already hardcore fans. You don't even have to be a Mario fan. It's colorful, creative, combative, and creates an environment different than what is seen in your run-of-the-mill sports titles. The controls are crisp and on target, giving the player(s) the best opportunities to organize a high percentage play. Storylines in sports games often come off forced, and Nintendo made the wise decision of passing up that formality. It's an enjoyable "pick up and play" game that gives the player a release from the day with their favorite Nintendo characters, without requiring the mental commitment of an over-arching story.

    Although it is a game that lacks complexity and a lengthy playthrough, Super Mario Strikers offers players a fun experience that is best shared with others and retains the signature Mario style. Full Review »
