It’s also extremely important to note that at that Strikers Edge, while fun in small doses, runs out of steam FAST. Your mileage may vary depending upon how you’re actually playing the game. If you’re only playing one of the eight extremely brief character campaigns, most likely you will have your fill after completing a couple of characters.
Although Strikers Edge doesn't quite reach the lofty heights of its peers, it's still a decent multiplayer game with a good premise and fun action. The differences between the characters give the combat just enough nuance to keep things interesting, but a lack of stages or alternate modes may quickly diminish your interest. If you're on the hunt for a new multiplayer title to play with your buddies, this certainly will do the trick, if only for a limited amount of time.
So, ultimately, the main conceit of Strikers Edge is a smart one. Not only that, it works well the majority of the time. It even looks and sounds the part. Yet somehow it lacks the genuine simplistic entertainment value of the genre giants, and it isn't nuanced enough to warrant playing it for extended periods of time. It both lacks depth and the simple "pick up and play" setup which makes for a great, casual local multiplayer game.
