3 months after its Wii version hit the shelves, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games has reached the 3DS. As with past games in the series, the handheld versions are usually the best with extra events and a story mode as featured in the Winter Olympics. This 3DS version is packed with many events to play and once again a story mode, but some questionable design choices do hold this one back from being the best.

The story is about everybody getting ready for the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics for the next day. However Dr Eggman and Bowser are hiding out in Big Ben and are quite upset that they weren't invited for the games. So Eggman has constructed a machine that by using a strange artifact will cause a massive fog to spread all around London, which will cause the Olympic Games to be cancelled. Mario, Sonic and their friends arrive in London and notice the fog spreading around the city and start to see fog copies of themselves. It's up to Mario, Sonic and crew to figure out the source of the fog and stop Eggman and Bowser. The plot itself is completely ridiculous just like the last game's story but it has its charm and corniness to it as well as some fun character interactions.

The game has 55 different Olympic events to play along with a multiplayer and story mode so there will be plenty to do. Each event has different styles of controls. You'll be using the traditional buttons as well as the microphone and gyro controls. Each event varies in controls. Some control great, others not as well. Events such as Aquatics 100m Freestyle, Taekwondo, Balance Beam, Trampoline, BMX, Canoe Slalom (Pair) and Archery are very fun with some pretty good controls.

Bought for my 9 yr old son, who loved it, played it a lot when first got it, has gone down the list a little now, but still gets played with every now and again. He had the Wii version first loved that and wanted it for DS too. Gave 4 stars has it hasn't remained a favourite, but that could just be his personal taste.

This is a very good game. In my opinion the handheld versions of games are better than their console counterparts as you can take them where you want. I didn't expect this game to be so good and packed with so many different sports though! Definite buy

mario and sonic at the games is all round a great game but in places (especially in the story mode) can be very repetitive, but aside from that the shear number of different Olympic games is staggering, you get to play as all of the sonic story characters and the mario ones as well, there is no online multiplayer but you can join up with another local 3ds console and have alot of fun.

Most of the games are fairy easy to control, its usually just a matter of pressing buttons in a certain order or hitting them quickly, but in some games such as basketball the control are quite tricky and i often found my screen falling down when making a shot at the hoop and most of the descriptions for the controls are not always easy to follow.

But if you enjoy sporty games with alot of re playability, great graphics with the classic characters mario and sonic, you will enjoy this.

Our son loves playing this game. He's not good at athletics so this is a good game were he believes he now has a chance to win a race what is normally impossible to do. Good confidence booster even if make believe.

I treated myself to this a few months ago. It has had a lot of use and is a lot of fun. It is suitable for all ages. It can be a bit repetitive in parts but then a lot of games are. Some games take more skill than others but on the whole I think it is great value and will give hours of fun. Highly recommend
