wow! i am not a large football fan but i loved this game. The fact that you can play nintendo charecters is awesome and very appealing to nintendo fans and followers of the mario games. Gameplay is good but could be inproved by making the pitch bigger and more players in your team than four. During the game scoring goals can be difficult without megastickes because of the amazing out of the ordinary athletic ability of the keeper. However megastrickes are have very attractive visuals and each charecter has a different one to master. Also the items are useful to change the gameplay. The story mode in thisd game is great and fun however it is difficult and there are tons of matches before the final for the cup. This game has been out since the wii came out 2 years ago and still costs £30 which is a lot. The online mode is brilliant and fun however very hard to play with friends due to nintendos habbit of giving a friend code for everything. The challenge mode in this game is a very highly increaseing difficulty and by the third challenge you are already in legend difficulty two player is very good and probably the most enjoyable mode in this game, By playing against somebody who has naver played this game and using your megastrick will leave then mouth dropped in aww as to what had just happened and why you are winning 6-0 (if you time it right) in just 4 seconds. It is a hugly enjoyable game overall and probably a nintendo wii must buy game.
