Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
A basic Mario sports title: take the sport, get rid off the dull parts and add power-ups, special attacks and fun areas.
+ Customization. Every captain and every minion has seperate stats and their own special abilities. Very nice.
+ Megastrikes. They feel good, they have cool animations and are oddly enough not balance-breaking.
+ Multiplayer is fun. No doubt about it. And isn't having fun the most important part of a game?
+ Areas are alive and unique, this and the powerups maje sure the action never stops.
- Balance. Some captains you won't be using at all, same with the minions. For example, captains and minions that can jump can jump over the goalie, scoring an easy goal.
- Singleplayer. No chance to edit teams in between play, overly difficult opponents and losing a single match kinda eliminates you straigth away. This feels more like a chore than it feels like fun.
