Excellent Game !!!!!!!!!,
This review is from: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii) (Video Game)
Wow, this game turned out to be WAY better than I expected. I mean, the Mario series was fantastic, and the Sonic series was brilliant too, it's good to see that fusion of the two transferred so well. The games themselves are really fun and they were way more challenging than I expected. Plus the world rank feature is really cool, it's great being able to see everyone you've beaten...and lost to too. And the dream races are amazing, I only unlocked one but even the one I did was enough to keep me entertained for hours, even on the single player not to mention all the games that are standard for the Olympics. I was wondering how they'd use motion controls for all the events and it turned out to work as smoothly as Wii Sports did. The games feels so natural and after a while you'll start to realise the skills you need to play like the swimming which is immensely fun, especially how the swimming controls vary per character. The mission mode is loads of fun too, like the normal games, but with certain tasks such as "Beat Knuckles in Archery" and so on, good fun. The AI is fairly good too, enough to entertain you for hours on the single player, and the multiplayer is really good because all the games are playable without the nun-chuck too. All in all a pretty damn good game, can't think of much to criticize. Would definitely recommend this game!!!!!!!!

Who would you recommend it to? Someone who you would like to see with both arms in splints from repetitive strain injury? Someone you would like to see smash all their furniture and fittings by waving their arms around in the living room? Or someone who is simply tired of good games and would like to try something really, really dreadful for a change? I dunno, I don't think this game comes anywhere near to Wii Sports on any level - that has really clever gesture-based controls. This is just a glossy update of the old joystick-waggling sports games of yesteryear like Daley Cathlete's Dethompson and Track & Field, which were quite gimmicky even in their heyday. Still, I see from the reviews that I am in the minority here!
