As with all the Mario and gang games you pretty much know what your going to get, frantic waving on the Wii controller, collecting items that give you extra power or weapons which inflict attacks on your opponents.
All the characters are present.
The games are very similar to what you have seen before, If you have Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii) Mario Strikers Charged Football (Wii)
and Mario Power Tennis (Wii)
, juggle them together you pretty much get Mario Sports mix.
The games do feel a little American, with Volley Ball, Hockey, Dodge Ball and Basketball, still lots of fun. The back ground are varied with each event, you can choose lots of different ones.
Best part with Mario games are the one on ones which on Mario Sports Mix don't disappoint, you can play with up to four players, you laugh your socks off, my little one of 7 with his cousin who is also 7 laughed loads and got very competitive at one point.
Again a brilliant game from the Mario team, don't expect loads of difference from everything else you have played but still worth owning.
