This game is fantastic for all the right reasons. The graphics in this game are very good and enhance the game play dramatically as this is an important factor in all great games. The charecters in this game are the good traditional Mario characters although some of the sidekicks I have never heard of before.
This game is extremly easy to control although thare are lots of high action packed moves in this game they are very simple and effective.
The only criticism I have of this game is that it is very difficult to win the cups in the road to the striker cup challenge. The rest of the game is fantastic though so if you want a fantastic action packed family football game then choose this one.
