    It came out today here in the US, and I picked it up and I must say its a crazy/fun game. The only experience I had with strikers before, was playing the game cube version about a year ago in a gamestop store, and thinking to myself wow this game is crazy. I thought about getting it then, but then saw it was coming out for the wii so i held off. Did anyone else buy it? Anyone wanna exchange friend code(s) so we can play?

    I've got it, it's embarassing to think that so many people are going to overtake me on this game :eek: I only play multiplayer - haven't touched single yet. I'll get my code later and expect to get owned.

    Head start? What head start? :D

    The codes are regionalized just like the game. Yay Nintendo! They are well on their way to screwing themselves in online play again.

    They need to have a single account/ID that lets you play any wi-fi game, this code crap is just that.. crap.

    I'll boot up the game in a few, hopefully its as good as the reviews have made it out to be.

    Curious to hear what y'all think of this game. Already have Striker for the 'cube, and not sure I need another edition for $50.

    Well so far this game has been outta hand. I don't kno if the cube version has online play, but the wifi on the wii makes it real fun. I thought I was doing alright, winning about 3 out of 4 matches..and I just got my ass kicked 15-2. I think over at ign they have a pretty good comparison to the cube version. So far it's been fun, and it seems like a game that'll be real fun, and I wont get bored of anytime soon..

    What? Sorry, I've been too busy playing.

    This game freakin' rocks for multiplayer. I got a friend over to play co-op through the first cup.

    Jimmi; on single player you can have friends on your team. So try out single player :D That's how you unlock multiplayer stages and characters!

    Online question: Is it like MP: Hunters where it searches for opponents for you or are there rooms you can go into and play?

    Yea, multiplayer = rocks. It's done the unthinkable and shunned Smash Bros Melee off the multiplayer thrown (for me at least). I'm going to try and get Caroline into it tomorrow since my sisters away at the moment (she's 15 and amazing at this. We're balanced. Something has levelled the playing field for sure).

    What are all your fave teams? I just stick with Mario/Luigi, with Toad, Koopa Trooper and Birdo.

    The game is slightly more psychotic than the GameCube version, if you have played that one. Everything has been improved: better AI, customizable sidekicks, better arena selection, arenas that affect you and your opponent's abilities, goalie control mini-game for Charged shots.

    The AI in the single player modes are definitely putting up more of a fight. The challenge mode actually gets difficult, and the first cup starts off slightly difficult. They had me on the edge at moments. I think it comes from the addition of the evasion abilities when you have the ball. The arenas might change up your strategy up a little. The goalie mini-game is kind of decent. I just think it would've been cooler to hold your arms with the nunchuck and Wii remote and block shots that way.

    Online was pretty lag-free as long as you're above 4 stars (or is that the highest?). I played three series, lost all three, but there was no lag for the first, lag for the second, and lag in the beginning but it disappeared for the third. Online is insane. People are ridiculously good. It boggles my mind. I beat people to a pulp in the GameCube version, but on the Wii, I got 2 wins in those 9 matches. :(

    You know, I'm glad there's no voice-chatting enabled in Wii games. Strikers is one of those games where you really want to yell out obscenities at your opponents... :)

    Friend Code: 425308-477929, Mii: Charles. I'm likely be on in the afternoon (US EST) on weekdays.

    Game kicks ass.. especially online! Me and my brother have been going at it for the past couple of hours. Wish there was a way to communicate with him though. Haven't played a ranked match yet though. Here's my game code: 386653 780449

    Do we have to have each others' console #s for this to work? Anyhoo, if you add me, let me know so I can add you too!

    dang too bad i have to wait until september to add you guys since i'm currently playing with my brothers console and not mine

    my fav team is waluigi, birdo, bohoo and zombie-koopa (what's the english name ? )

    i personally like to have a fast team and waluigi provides that extra defense value with those long tackles
    weak point is that in terms of shooting you are depending a lot on Birdo and on your own game reading skills for keeping opponent under pressure

    another good combo is 2 birdo, 1 zombie and peach

    and if you want to shoot blindly replace peach with the big ape ;)

    Go to see your friends list, it's written on top of the screen.

    It's all about the multiplayer...
    The only improvement I can think of would be if there was some way to communicate with the opponent as you kick their behind.

    Well, the weaknesses most people point out in Strikers have to do with the single player game - multiplayer is pretty much universally praised. Lair's criticism stems from poor controls and unoriginality. =)

    I was just kidding dude, I really don't take any reviews too seriously.

    I think it might be Dry Bones? I don't know. I don't have the game, but it sounds like this guy:
