Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (Wii)

 

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games marks the third time that heroes Mario and Sonic have squared off against one another and their respective friends and foes in a series of Olympic sporting events. At one point, such a pairing would have...

Mario & Sonic At The 2012 London Olympic Games

 

Mario & Sonic At The London 2012 Olympic Games for the Nintendo 3DS comes a few months later than the Wii offering, yet still months ahead of the actual event the mascots and other characters are meant to be participating in. Much like the Wii version,...

Plenty of stuff to play

Dumbed down gameplay ; Not enough actual Olympic content ; Would have been a good party game

This is the sort of game you get for a child who has a 3DS. Maybe they have a birthday coming up. Maybe they like the characters. Whatever the reason, they will enjoy playing the game. There is a lack of depth that more grown up gamers will miss and...

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games - 3DS on Nintendo DS

 

Qualifying But Not Record Setting

Mario & Sonic at the 2012 London Olympic Games is a standard mini game compilation that is not necessarily better or worse than its forbearers. At the core, it is a decent time waster that is designed to be played in shorter bursts. However, it is not...

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Review

 

Have you ever noticed how sometimes developers with large franchises don't really have to try anymore? They're built on the brilliance of their early efforts that earned all our trust, but are now happy to push out subpar products in the knowledge...

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Nintendo 3DS Review

 

At the same time, we don't hate Sega's creation. On the contrary, we feel it provides just enough charm and addictiveness to warrant a purchase, or at the very least, a rental.

Over 50 events, entertaining story mode, single card multiplayer, dramatic music, looks cool in 3D, online leaderboards

No online play, some events get old fast

The 3DS version of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games had a strike against it from the beginning, simply because it comes with 50 plus activities better suited to a motion controller like the Wii remote. People want to get off their butts...

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012…

 

It still doesn't feel right, you know. I was there, two decades ago, down in the frontlines. I chose my side in the war, man, and I stuck it out through thick and thin. No pointy-haired blue bastard was fast enough to beat Miyamoto's magnificent,...

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Playtest: Minigames For All!

 

It makes for friendly rivalry between everyone, protagonist and antagonist alike.

You can see what your ranking between different controls and different genres of games are. I’m apparently best with the circle pad and worst with the tilt controls, and best at rhythm games and worst at do-or-die games.

Review: Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for 3DS

 

One thing Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games has going for it is that it's much more exciting than watching the actual Olympics.

There are 57 events and 20 characters grouped into Heroes, Tricksters, Wild Ones, Girls and Challengers categories. The story mode works well. There’s local single cart and multicart multiplayer. You can collect badges and titles to put next to your...

No “Dream Events.” Some of the included events are rather silly, like grabbing a bottle of water at the right time. Motion controls are pretty terrible. No online multiplayer. Have to manually upload all online leaderboard scores one at a time

Mario & Sonic At The London 2012 Olympic Games

 

The two dueling mascots are at it again in Mario & Sonic At The London 2012 Olympic Games. This is the third Olympic Games style release where the two franchises go head to head in Olympic competition, this time it's still a few months away from the...

Some fun events ; Play as your Mii alongside Sonic & Mario

Not enough Olympic games ; What is with the Dream Games? Why ; Should have been a party style game ; Controls don't always work right

London Party is the mode which is actually the best use of the game. Sort of like Mario Party, 4 players go around London, collecting stickers, playing min-games, etc. This is actually what the game’s emphasis should have been. Had this been made as a...
