My reveiw is on the video game "Super Mario Strikers" for Nintendo Gamecube. You can play as 12 different mario characters: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, DK, Yoshi, Toad, Hammer Bros., Birdo and Koopa, but there's also a secret team that you have to unlock. The whole game is soccer, with major twists. The first 8 characters are team captains and are able to do a "super strike". The super strike is a really powerful shot and if you get it perfect, the goalie has no chance to save it! And, at any random time, Bowser can drop down and wreak havoc, which can seriously mess up your game. You're also able to get items to mess up your opponents. WARNING! You are able to affect your own team with your items.
The game is fun, and there are no fouls for the people who don't want all the rules of soccer. I like how Nintedo added an invisible electric fence, so that the ball does not go out, and it's also perfect to tackle opponents in to. ( Peach has the loudest scream when she's tackled into the electric fence).
The only thing I don't like about the game is that only some of the characters are able to do super strikes. As well, if you tackle an opponent who does not have the ball, your opponents get an item.
All in all, I think that everyone will like this game. If you're a soccer fan, a Mario fan, or just looking for a good game to play with your friends.
