The Olympic flame is put out.,
This review is from: Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games: Sochi 2014 (Nintendo Wii U) (Video Game)
With the 2008 game starting the series off, the rest of the games were mediocre at best.And to my disappointment, This game is no different. After London 2012, Everyone was hoping that Mario and Sonic's visit to the Sochi 2014 Olympics would re- light the flame of this series, but was just as bad as London 2012, maybe even worse.
First off, There is no way to play multiplayer locally unless you have a Wii motion plus controller. Also, you can't play some events with only the gamepad. This is just a rip off to me because I think it would work just fine with a regular remote.
Also, The control was messed up completely compared to the 2nd Olympic game. Your character (Regardless of your stats), Will be very clunky when trying to turn at any speed, making Gameplay slow and tedious unless you like skiing in straight lines!
Overall- 3/10 AVOID THIS GAME!
Please SEGA and Nintendo, Make Rio 2016 the best you can! I miss 2008!
