Forums - Gaming Discussion - Mario Strikers: Battle League Review - Lacking in many areas

Tagged games:

I'm not a spectator sport kind of guy: I'm either playing the sport, or not watching it. That's why I tend to gravitate towards entirely fictional takes on sports. Enter Mario Strikers: Battle League. Is this how cartoon sports are meant to be played?

And the written version that doesn't demonstrate that I'm purposely caricaturizing the voice and accent: http://zyro-eg.com/2022/06/23/mario-strikers-battle-league-review/

This is what happens when you have lackluster online multiplayer and a lack of fan favorite characters in the roster. And I thought Next Level Games' only bad game would be Metroid Prime Federation Force. -_-



The foundations are solid but content is very much lacking.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Imo decent gameplay (a little too fast), terrible online, lack of content. I actually like the Splatoon method, but that only works with an amazing game from start. People won't go back to the game unless it does a FF 14.



As with most Nintendo games these days I always get it free to try it before buying. After the disappointing Mario Golf and mario tennis I will probably not be paying for any sports games on the switch. Sports games were better on the Dreamcast 23 years ago.

I truly hope they add proper content to the game... Nintendo's not on a good track lately with these releases (Mario Party Superstars, anyone?), as if they're trying to make their own shovelware.  I think they're counting TOO much on the Mario branding... Heck, even though I'm excited for Splatoon 3, I can't deny that it looks like it could have easily just been a full DLC expansion for Splatoon 2.  Heck, it almost seems at the same level as Overwatch 2, and in OW's case, they recognized it enough to just replace the original with it lmao

I feel like I want to ask about the part I bolded, but also feel like I'll get a roundabout answer that isn't what I'm expecting haha
