Mario Strikers is a video game for the Nintendo Wii. In this game, Mario, Yoshi, Donkey Kong and friends have a tournament to find out which is the best soccer (football) player out of them.
For those who are expecting it to be a serious football game in the same vein as FIFA Soccer or Pro Evolution Soccer may be a bit disappointed: it's not. Special moves, super kicks and weapons are aplenty, the tackles are hard and fast, and the action is a frantic "best of 3 series", with each match lasting a total of 3 minutes.
Single player is a simple tournament with characters and features to unlock but where the game really comes into it's own is in multiplayer. You can either play individually with a friend on one console, or play online over the WiFi connection that is bundled with the Wii. This ensures that the game has massive replayability.
Overall, it's well worth getting game for the Nintendo Wii, and for those who want a fun game to return to again and again, you can do much worse than this.
