Mike’s Likes: Mario Strikers Charged

It’s about time for another installment of Mike’s Like’s. This time, I’m not dipping into a terribly obscure or nostalgic area to bring you my featured game. In fact, it has the most recognizable video game mascot lending his name and likeness to the title. Most people know that Mario Strikers Charged is good, but I believe it is one of the best games to be played on an aging system and that it exemplifies everything that was good about the Wii.
