    A phenomenal addition to the Wii's library and will rival GoldenEye 64 in terms of the exhilarating multiplayer experiences that it offers up. Don't turn your nose up at it just because you don't like soccer or you'll be missing out on one of the best gaming experiences around. Now, bring on Super Smash Bros. Brawl!
  2. Destined to join games like GoldenEye and Super Mario Kart as an incredibly fun multiplayer experience.

    There's enough strategy to dig into for the added satisfaction, but underneath it all is a foundation of pure fun. [Oct 2007, p.90]
  4. If you are a fan of Nintendo Sports titles of past years, then get to the present time and pick up a copy of this game, it's worth it.

    Despite featuring only a short single player mode Mario Strikers Charged Football is an incredibly entertaining game and comes highly recommended for Wii owners who are starved for games.
  6. Gameplay is frantic, the presentation has been noticeably improved, and there's enough strategy for players to develop a style, which they can then show off online. All in all, it's a notable score for team Mario.
  7. Mario Strikers Charged is enjoyable on a lark, but it’s a tiny baby step just to advance a single feature of the Wii.

    Everything was added to make this game better than its predecessor. More personalized abilities for both captains and teammates, the ability Everything was added to make this game better than its predecessor. More personalized abilities for both captains and teammates, the ability to choose individual teammates, an ACTUAL difference in stadiums and the addition of challenges. And for the nintendo fans who have long awaited an online game (that's not Phantasy Star online) this is it. The sequel answered all the questions about the original. Expand

    This game gets some major bonus points for a being remarkably original, especially compared to the other mario sports titles. I mean, evenThis game gets some major bonus points for a being remarkably original, especially compared to the other mario sports titles. I mean, even just comparing it to its previous title, Super Mario Strikers.

    The pure style and energy in this game hasn't been replicated. There's something eerily hilarious, but intensely grabbing about Mario characters being ANGRY and PISSED. This game is hilariously proud of how it emphasizes its violence, which is just salt in the Strikers stew. The personality of all of the characters is more charming than they've been in any game (reminder: ANGRY). In other Mario sports games, the characters are amicable and have good sportsmanship. In this game, Waluigi is finally allowed to punt his teammates. Wario can try to commit suicide after the other team scores. PETEY PIRAHNA can fulfill his DREAM of becoming a LIMBO MASTER.

    Anyway. Moving away from style, the gameplay is pretty fun, albeit similar to the first game. It is surprisingly strategic, and it's fun to try and come up with strategies and the like. The difficulty can be surprisingly punishing, if you aren't good enough to handle the harder CPUs.

    Unfortunately, I was never able to play this online, but from what I've heard it worked quite well. I won't change my score because of it, but just something to mention.

    Either way, this game is a decent sport's game, with one hell of a style, like an decent cake with master-class frosting.

    I don't like sports. At all. But I really enjoy this game. It's less soccer and more action. I get lost on the screen sometimes. I don't like sports. At all. But I really enjoy this game.

It clearly improvesWith Mario Strikers: Charged Football the developers have created an exciting, frantic, arcade footie title for all ages. It clearly improves on its predecessor in all areas of the park and even adds a few new ideas into the mix. Whilst understandably lacking any depth in single player mode, it truly shines as a multiplayer party game for you and your mates. Well worth your consideration. Expand
