I love Mario, and this game has really gone to the extreme level! There's plenty of cartoon violence, mostly pushing, and also some crude humor(Wario farting). Also, parents may find the soccer uniform on Princess Peach and Daisy a little bit inappropriate, but nothing too much is revealed, only bellies and the upper part of the legs. Other than that, this game is awesome to play!

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Play options include competing in a tournament to win trophies or trying special challenges to unlock player cards and secret codes. You can play online against strangers using the Wii wireless connection. Playing with friends online is a little harder, as you both need to exchange friend codes that are different than the regular friend codes, and it … takes … a … long … time … to … connect.

The graphics and sound aren't much improved from the GameCube version. But it's still humorous to see the "angrier" Mario characters play soccer. The controls are a little tricky to learn at first, so newbies may want to practice up before playing, because the game's artificial intelligence plays a mean game of soccer, and the online opponents are even tougher.
