4.0 out of 5 stars A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED 11 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite the hefty cost of this game as sold as special edition was a little annoyed to find that all that was limited edition about it was that it came with a storage tin. I had been informed that the limited edition did actually have extra games! perhaps my neice was mis informed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mario & Sonic 1 Jan 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We bought this game for our 10 year old son and he loves it! but better still so do we and his grandparents.
There are lots of different games, something for everyone, even Grandad who normally doesn't enjoy wii games really liked the pistol shooting as it takes an element of skill.
This was played for many hours over Christmas & is one for young & old alike.
We can't wait for the real thing in the summer now!

4.0 out of 5 stars Going for gold but coming second... 29 Dec 2011
By Div29
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is the follow-up to the successful Mario and Sonic at the 2008 Olympic Games. while four years may have past the essence of the game remains untouched. There is the same mix of traditional Olympic events with the more arcade orientated dream events, which can be played with all your favourite characters from the worlds of mario and Sonic or with your own Mii.

The original conceit of individdual and co-op challenges remains failthful to the original version of the game and while some of the games are familiar the inclusion of Equestrian and football amongst others gives you the feeling of treading new territory rather than being ripped off with a rehash.

The down side to Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games comes from the dream events. They are typical arcade style fodder that feels less imaginative than the 2008 versions. This is cemented by the use of the wii controller in the horizonal position and game play focused on the buttons.

Overall this is another good addition to the Mario and Sonic Olympic legacy which has dominated game play on the Wii in my household for years.
