Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii)

 

If back in 1990 you had told either a Nintendo or Sega fanboy that both Mario and Sonic would be appearing together in a game in 2007, they would have told you that you were completely insane. Well, the unthinkable has happened, and the once-fierce...

Mario and Sonic team up in the spirit of Olympic competition in this hyper-branded Wii title. Will this collection of sports-oriented minigames knock Wii Sports off its podium?

When these two mascots meet, they forget where they came from.

The long-running dispute finally ends the only way it ever could…with hostile canoeing.

Good character models ; Sensible stylus gestures ; Acceptable event variety

Some sports poorly executed ; Inadequate multiplayer ; Unlocking content by winning easy circuits can be tedious

While Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games' design takes some notable missteps, it does many things quite well. But the singular failure to execute multiplayer effectively means that the game's merits are not capitalised upon, and therefore it...

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Game Review - Nintendo Wii

 

The main reason why the game essentially doesn't suck is because it's on the Wii. Yeah, fanboyish reason. But honestly, because of the motion-sensitivity features the Wii possesses, Sega has done a lot of right with the game. Like other games...

Mario + Sonic = Old-School Gamer Fan Service. Aside from that equation, this is actually a pretty good multiplayer game

Mario or no Mario. Sonic or no Sonic. It's still your average Olympic game. But instead of getting tired of playing it mentally, you'll get tired of playing it physically as well

There are twenty Olympic events which are divided into eight different classifications; athletics, aquatics, gymnastics, shooting, rowing, archery, fencing, and table tennis

Another day, another collection of mini-games for the Wii. This one is Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, a sports-themed party game honoring the Summer Games taking place this year in Beijing. If you put aside your curiosity at just how Sega and...

This review was based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

If you would have ever told me a few years ago that Mario and Sonic would team up in a videogame and it would be developed outside of Nintendo, I would have laughed at you. But no matter how unbelievable this is, it has happened. Although after...

Nintendo and Sega should both be ashamed for what is a wasted opportunity to create a real Wii Sports killer. When the dust settles, all we are left with is one of the worst games of the year. I wouldn't wish this game on your worst enemy.

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games Review

 

So, all the kids that just picked up gaming in the past generation or two may not fully understand just why this is such a significant game in the history of gaming. They won't understand the wars that went on in the 16 bit generations, with Sega's...

Overall, I'd still recommend this game, despite its higher-than-expected price point. You'll still have a good bit of fun for your gaming dollar. While seeing Mario and Sonic together now isn't quite as big as it may have been even a few years ago, it...

A solid first team-up, but nothing spectacular.

Olympic Games does a competent job in the visual department as well, but the character renders of the Mario crowd can't hold a candle to what we've seen in recent releases like Galaxy, and even the Sonic stuff seems a bit sub-par when compared to his...

16-bit dreams become Wii realities as two mascots you never thought you'd see together compete for the gold.

This dream crossover contains some fun mini-games that use the Wii controller well; online score rankings

Other mini-games don't work as well; no practice mode; no online play
