Product Details


Product Description

Supercharged Characters! - The captains from Super Mario Strikers are back, joined by four new ones, and now you can create your own original team by mixing and matching your captain with an all-new cast of sidekicks. All characters have their own sets of special abilities, making each one play completely differently from one another. New captain super-abilities and sidekick skill-shots add a new level of depth to already crazy soccer battles on the most unpredictable and hazard-filled pitches in the Mario universe. Each field features its own set of interactive hazards that alter game play over the course of the game. **Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Game Play! - There are tons of new single-player modes, from tournaments to challenges to tutorials, but the game truly shines in multiplayer. The game features a robust multiplayer mode-up to four players can battle locally, or they can go online in each specific sales territory for one-on-one matches. **Kickin' Wii Controls! - Building on the frantic fun of Super Mario Strikers, this game gets you into action only possible on the Wii. Primary game play controls use both the Wii Remote and Nunchuck controllers. Use the Nunchuk to control your characters and deploy items. Flick the Wii Remote to perform the defensive "Big Hit" move and flatten foes. To defend against a "Mega Strike" goal attempt, use the Wii Remote to point at the screen and manually defend against multiple balls as they rocket towards the screen!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Chaos Aug. 1 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like its predecessor, Mario Strikers Charged is probably one of the most chaotic games I have ever played. I've often described it to people as, "Super Smash Brothers meets Soccer."

Officially the second game released by Nintendo to make use of the Wii Connect24 functionality, Strikers allows you to take on opponents outside of your living room. You can take on friends by sharing your 'friend code', or you can take on random people in a best of 3 match. You can also play an online series "with a guest," allowing two people to don their wiimotes and nunchucks as a team.

The game is centered around soccer, but maintains that marioesque game by adding a number of in-game powerups - from shells to bob-ombs to stars. Instead of having penalties, your opponent is given a powerup when you hit them illegally. Needless to say, a hard-hitting match can often result in a large number of items filling the screen. Not to mention "natural" hazards on the number of different fields, and the game becomes absolutely chaotic.

Single player, in-home multiplayer, and WiiConnect multiplayer all provide hours of endless entertainment. Very kid-friendly (and still a lot of fun to those of us who grew up with the Nintendo franchise).

4.0 out of 5 stars It Scores! Jan. 8 2011
By Tommy Sixx Morais TOP 100 REVIEWER
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
What is it with Mario sports titles that make them so enjoyable? To me it's the combination of Mario characters, sports and special moves put together makes for fun sports titles. You don't even need to be a fan of sports to enjoy Mario Strikers Charged of the Wii, much like Wii sports in a way. I played the original Mario Strikers on the Gamecube when it was released and later on Mario Strikers Charged was one of the very first Wii games I bought (and one of my reasons for buying one) and it remains one that I still enjoy today. Strikers Charged was released on Wii in 2007 and despite the few years that have gone by it remains an excellent Wii game that still looks good graphically (for a 2007 Wii game keep in mind and the 17 courses look very good)and is a blast to play. It's one Wii title that is worth trying and buying. It's a great Mario game and it's a fun sports game at the same time, a winning combination.

There are 12 captains and 8 sidekicks you can choose from, and as can be expected every player has their own special abilities. For instance Bowser can breathe fire with his special, while Mario & Luigi can become huge and crush other players with theirs; it's the same for the sidekicks. The captains can perform what are called Mega Strikes which can lead to up to 6 goals being scored at the same time (so much for the fair play of soccer huh?). The game can be very challenging; I had difficulties winning all the trophies because the game is so unpredictable. The fact that you can never predict anything for sure makes it interesting and fun but it can also be very frustrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars best wii game, best mario sports game ever Oct. 23 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this is without a doubt the best mario sports game ever created...do not be fooled that its a mario sports game, its easy and fun to play but difficult to master. I've been playing this for months, Metroid hasn't even kept my interest as much...and the online is great (when people don't disconnect because they're losing). Awesome game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for the whole family Jan. 5 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is one that my 6 year old, through teenagers to Dad can play and all have a great time. It is simple enough for a youngster to be able to play and win yet has enough intrique and complexity through power ups and ways of scoring and managing your team (with specialists) that everyone stays interested. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best reason to own a Wii right now. Aug. 2 2007
By Conker - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What do you get when you mix fast paced arcade style soccer with all the characters of the mushroom kingdom? You get Mario Strikers Charged. If you're not a fan of soccer, then don't worry...neither am I. But what I am a fan of is this game.

If you've played the original for Gamecube, you'll understand a good deal of basics for Strikers. What Next Level did for the sequel is nothing short of outstanding. They've improved on absolutely every aspect from the original. You can now fully customize your team (unlike the original where you only had 4 different sidekicks to choose from and whichever you picked made of the rest of your team). Not only that, but there are 8 different sidekicks, each with different strengths and weaknesses, adding a great deal of depth where the original lacked. Also what's great is that each sidekick has their own power shot, all awesome and requires different strategies to pull off successfully. Also, the megastrike has been tweaked for team captains. Now, you can send up to 6 balls at once flying towards the goal. However, they aren't as cheap as before. The player now has the opportunity to block the shots via the Wii remote...a cool little feature that makes it a little more balanced than the original.

There are 17 courses total, with all the original courses returning, fully redone graphically, and they all look spectacular. In fact, this is probably the prettiest game on the Wii to date. I gotta tell ya, when you start a match in 'THE VICE' and see a million screaming fans (all mushroom kingdom residents) screaming and cheering, filling the stands that literally stretch 1000 feet above the arena, you'll get goose bumps...it looks absolutely amazing.

Multiplayer is phenomenal (like the original), and really where the game shines. Prepare to put aside several hours if you plan on having people over to play...you'll have to force yourself to stop. Up to 4 players can dish it out at once. You can choose the number of matches played in the series, the time limit, and or goal limit. And then of course there's the online mode....fun fun fun. Now you can play your buddy can play together from the comfort of your own homes, talking trash on AIM after every match. You can also compete on the leader boards against anyone in your respective country and see how well you stack up against everyone else (it's pretty easy to see who has no life...just check the top 20 ranked players).

Now for the bad. Unfortunately, the sever crashes waaaay to much. As more and more people buy the game and start logging on, I can only see it getting worse. I've got disconnected during 4 or so matches (all of which I was winning) which sucks because they won't go on your record. Also, there's no way to communicate with whoever you're playing against (which may be good or bad depending on how much trash talking you do). The lag isn't too bad...I've only found it to be a problem a couple times and it was just for a short while. Luckily, the game lets you know how good the connection is (4 stars being the best). Still, a 4 star connection can see some lag, so make sure you don't settle for anything less.

Still, these are minor shortcomings, and don't detract from the overall experience of the game. It's awesome, fast paced, addicting, fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another GGGGGOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! July 30 2007

Back in 2005, Nintendo really knew what it was doing by briinging Mario and his whole gang to the wild and outrageous world of sports on the Gamecube. Undoubtingly, the experiments worked beyond expectations. Mario Superstar Baseball, delivered a fun and entertaing home run with baseball madness that was fun & had some excellent minigames. But what really exploded was Super Mario Strikers, a wild and outrageous soccer game that really brought out so many kicks into the game. It really was a delightful treat for gamers everywhere, that a sequel had to be made for a second goal, and it was worth the wait.

Mario Strikers Charged for the Nintendo Wii is the thried Wii title to endure with competing against gamers online through Nintendo's Wi-Fi connection, and the game delivers. The game follows in suit well and brings even more fun that Super Mario Strikers left over. The gameplay includes returning characters Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi, as well as a couple of new playable captains like Bowser, and Diddy Kong. You can also even use your Mii's you've created as captains, as you did before from Mario Party 8. The game includes new arenas that really work beautifully with the Mario experience, ranging from the traditional, to arenas where whomps drop down on you. The control here is a bit different here in the game, as you use the nunchuck controls to move your captain and crew, and you use the Wii remote to block, pass and shoot your soccer balls to score.

There also is a new feature added to the game, a mega strike, where you could shoot as many as six goals at a single time at the goal. There are also new offensive tatics from the players. Wario could let out a foul odor to cause your opponents to hold their breath while your in control for the ball, and Mario could turn into a giant with his new moves. The graphics look wonderful and the gameplay is even more addictive than ever before, but the controls here take a bit to get used to, but once you complete the Strikers 101 training, you'll be able to get the gameplay down easily. There are also a few new characters and trophies that are added to unlock for extra gameplay for exhibition competetions, including Petey Piranha from Super Mario Sunshine, who is making his attempts to score his kicks, but you'd have to unlock certain trophies in the tournaments.

All in all, while there are other great games coming out that have much more hype like Metroid Prime 3: Corruption for the Wii, Mario Strikers Charged is worth the wait for sports fans everywhere. If you've loved the Gamecube edition, than you are really going to get your kicks here. I absolutely love the hype of the game, no red cards here, just all goals!!

4.0 out of 5 stars This Plumber's Got Some New Kicks! July 31 2007
By ShockYourMind99 - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario Strikers Charged needs no introduction; the Wii-iteration is largely based on its Gamecube predecessor but takes this last-generation concept and its respective execution to a new level with increased interactivity, challenge, and connectivity, not to mention a myriad of graphical enhancements, new arenas, side-kicks, and Mushroom Kingdom madness that only the geniuses at Nintendo could provide! In a word, Strikers is brilliant; without question, it stands as one of the Wii's strongest first-party titles, one which gamers will undoubtedly enjoy throughout the duration of the innovative console's lifetime.

Graphically speaking, Strikers can be described as one of the Wii's most attractive - no, downright visually stunning - recent endeavors. With all of the PlayStation 2 software ports currently available on for the system, many gamers have grown disillusioned with the gaming world's publishing houses as well as with the Wii's allegedly 'inferior' graphical abilities (when compared to other next-gen consoles). Thankfully, Nintendo and Next Level games longtime toiled to ensure that Strikers defies this overarching criticism - the game is truly of next-generation make. Mario, Peach, Bowser, heck, the whole cartoon crowd, has never looked or moved better; animations are ridiculously smooth whilst textures are deep and high-resolution. Particle explosions, crowd movements, and lighting effects also aim to please, seeing as all of which have been pain-painstakingly developed so as to appear "wow-worthy" on-screen.

As far as gameplay goes, what makes Strikers a winner is Nintendo's unique ability to push a somewhat generic gaming genre (action sports) beyond its usual restrictions and in doing so, create a title as chaotic as it is frenzied fun to play! Acting as the Mario Kart for soccer, Strikers Charged takes an athletic core concept then radically reforms it into a surreal platformer/party/sporting experience. Matches are short and sweet, lasting just around three minutes time. During your 180 seconds of gameplay, innumerable obstacles (like flying cows, turtleshells, banana peels, bombs, chain-chomps, etc) explosions (lava rushes, artillery fire), special moves (ground-pounds, character enlargements, periods of momentary invincibility or increased agility), and environmental nuisances (think tornadoes and lightning) will plague your efforts to bring home a win. So much action occurs simultaneously that at times, one can hardly determine who's who and to where the ball has disappeared but within the confines of such confusion lies the heart of Strikers; the game is about as bombastic as athletics can get in a fantasy land where nothing is as it seems and little, if anything, goes according to plan.

Lastly, one cannot chronicle this game's successes without describing the microcosm that is the Strikers WiFi Community. Being one of the Wii's first truly "online" gaming titles, users nationwide (the game currently restricts international play) can compete against each other in live, lag-free internet-based matches. The WiFi configuration is especially intuitive and takes less than a minute to auto-select a rival gamer, confirm settings, and launch the match. For online gamers, this is nothing less than unbridled bliss~

If you hold even an acute interest in Mario-based gaming, buy this title; if you somewhat enjoy online gaming, buy this title; heck, even if you customarily loathe sports games, buy this title.

You truly will not be disappointed.

PROS -
+ Beautifully rendered cinematics & in-game graphics; for perhaps the first time on the Wii, the visuals leave absolutely nothing to be desired.
+ Music and sound effects are fitting and succeed in delighting gamers, not annoying them.
+ Action is fast-paced, frenzied, and all too fun; replayability is especially high.
+ Making use of the Wii's WiFi Connection, gamers can now battle online with friends and foes alike.
+ A myriad of gaming modes allow for extended or abbreviated play, depending upon what one's time allows and his or her gaming preferences.

CONS -
-- WiFi matches lack voice or text communication capabilities so although you may challenge your friends, verbal or textual taunting remains absent.
-- AI difficulty settings sometimes radically change without reason; one can win a given cup with little to no effort but then during a reprise, can fail to even reach the elimination round.

I am not a fan of sports games - I don't like football, soccer, baseball, etc games on a game console. However Nintendo has managed to make this particular game very fun to play. It will be too "arcady" for real sports games fans, but for people who just want fun gameplay this is the game for you.

Now, I'm normally not one to play strict sports games (sans Madden) or soccer games for that matter. But I've come to like the Mario Sports line. So after trying the original Super Mario Strikers, I felt I should get this. I am glad I did. This game is so easy to pick up. I had the controls down in 15 minutes (which is less than I can say for Madden. I've got 2005 at home which I bought when it came out. I'm still learning controls). The game is also fun. Its not like "real" soccer where you're lucky to get a goal in the game. I played a game today that ended 11-0. The game includes something called "Mega Shots" where you can send 2-6 balls at a time at the goalie. But when you do this, you can control the hands of the goalie if you're the other team. The graphics are really good, but nothing like the realism of the 360 or PS3. the audio is goodl the game utilizes the Wiimote speaker in a cool way with different sounds. I also like how the game can be played online via Nintendo's WiFi connection (which apparently is less prone to dropouts and problems). So even if you don't like soccer or sports games, at least rent this. You may be surprised.
