This isnt going to change my mind. It does dissapoint me that they said that it didnt live up to its full potential, but thats there opinion...... they have it a 6.5.. yet they didnt try online http://gonintendo.com/index.php?paged=2 NGamer reviews Mario Strikers Charged May 4th, 2007 NGamer had a chance to play a final copy of Mario Strikers Charged minus the online play. Graphics: The term gamecube+ suffices. The game looks as good as the Gamecube version, some extra graphic effects. Sound: Monotonous, predictable, boring. We heared three different songs in the entire game, mediocre quality. Where are the Mario tunes? Gameplay: Wiimote and nunchuck controls are OK, but so much more was possible? Waggling to do a sliding? Come on! Long term: Single player is short, with just a few cups and a few challenges, the lone gamer isn’t in for a treat. Conclusion Strikers charged doesn’t add anything to the previous part, nearly doesn’t use the capabilities of the Wii and doesn’t feel like a quality title. Will the online mode rescue it? 6.5 NGamer complains about the mega strike animations, seeing that you aren’t able to skip them. That’s the same as the first game. They also believe that using the Wiimote to block mega strikes feels gimmicky. I am holding final judgment until the game makes it to the states.
