    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.

    This is by far the craziest Mario sports title yet and I had a blast with it. [Jan 2006, p.49]
  3. The fact that the atmosphere is the most notable part of the game means that it also fails in some respects.
  4. It's soccer starring Mario and friends, but the problem is, there just isn't enough "Mario" in Super Mario Strikers.
  5. Yet another brilliantly ironic Mario Sports title which once again proves that everyones favorite portly plumber can indeed kick it with style.
  6. A decent arcade soccer game with too little Mario. The developers could have put considerably more Mario-elements into the game other than the characters and the title.
  7. Nintendo didn't include enough extra fuel to give this otherwise fun endeavor the appeal of a "Mario Kart."

    Superb! As told, don't expect realism, but in which game you see 50 shots on goal in 5 minutes!?? Easy and fun to play, fine graphics.

    Really great gameplay, extremely fun with friends. I think this is about as good as a sports game can get.

    I wish EA made games as naturally playable as this. Sure, it may well fall between two stools, being too Mario-y for football fans and too I wish EA made games as naturally playable as this. Sure, it may well fall between two stools, being too Mario-y for football fans and too football-y for platform cravers, but as a fan of both, I love it. There's a palpable learning curve and working on your build-ups to attacks reaps great rewards. Back of the net! Or something. Expand

    Yet another Mario cash-in. Weak gameplay, zero depths, and the standard Mario Universe gimmicks all around. Nintendo is becoming EA
