The first Mario & Sonic Olympics release had it easy, realising the once impossible dream of bringing together Nintendo and Sega's world-famous mascots and former arch rivals for the first time. It was always going to be a hit (even though it made sense to nobody that Sonic could be beaten by Mario in a sprint). Then the second game added snow, and, as everyone knows, adding snow to a videogame makes it approximately 461 times better. Along with a host of new winter events (curling was so awesome), it helped make Mario & Sonic at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games feel like an entirely new experience. The third title is a tougher sell and I'd wrongly assumed this review would write itself in one sentence: 'As good as ever, but don't bother if you have the original game.' That statement is half-true. The first half.
Right from the attract sequence that depicts the gang on a red bus passing famous London landmarks, you're in a happy place and this game is already on its way to earning a bonus star from most Brits. Then there's London Party Mode, which is where you and your family will be spending a lot of time. If you like Mario Party, you'll love this. Up to four participants run around the streets of a mini London in topdown mode, featuring the likes of the London Eye and Buckingham Palace.Read more ›
