Sonic Colours

 

The story is a traditional good versus maniacal evil-genus bad guy who wants to take over the world. In this case we have series antagonist, Dr. Eggman, who claims he's sorry for over 20 years of scheming and sets up an enormous "interstellar amusement...

Asterix at the Olympic Games

 

Contrary to what it may seem, Asterix at the Olympic Games does not actually involve a whole lot of sporting activity. Certainly, our pint-sized hero does throw a few javelins here and there, but it's certainly not Sonic & Mario at the Olympics with an...

The events are fun for a while, but soon lose their appeal - there are certainly better multiplayer games available on the console. Overall, this game is definitely one for the kids, or the fans, and for that reason I personally will give it a rather...

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (DS) review

 

The roster is made up of sixteen characters, eight from Mario games and eight from the Sonic series, but when it comes down to playing the game your rivals appear to be randomly picked from either team, there is no Mario vs. Sonic vibe at all, which is...

A definite place on the winners' podium.

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games

 

Call it a desperate attempt to work off the mountain of Christmas pie if you will (Jay no doubt shall), but the past week has seen me take to my Wii like a fat duck to water. With even a short tennis game on Wii Sports leaving me feeling like an...

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

 

Just because Nintendo think that doing Wii Sports 2 would be too predictable, that doesn't mean that the public demand for such a title has subsided. To that end there are a number of developers stepping up with their offerings that look to combine...

Overall we have to conclude that this is more of a distraction until a proper Wii Sports game appears on the scene. There just isn't enough substance here to keep the committed player coming back for more. It is another game that should be popped in...

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games (Wii) review

 

Mario, Sonic, supporting cast, Olympics. A perfect combination!

A brilliant idea that’s been carried out really well. The Wii world will go absolutely bonkers for this and rightfully so.

Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games (2007)

 

Were someone to invent a time machine, take a spin back to the mid-90s and tell a group of hardcore gamers that Mario and Sonic would one day appear in the same game, it’s likely they’d probably be torn limb-from-limb by furious fanboys. But while...

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

 

As compendiums go, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is one of the best on the Wii. It is well designed and the conjoined worlds are realised with simple graphical flair.

Brilliant fun and plenty of it ; A wonderful combination of iconic gaming worlds ; Thoroughly addictive and engrossing

Too much time fiddling with the Nunchuck

As compendiums go, it is one of the best on the Wii. It is well designed and the conjoined worlds are realised with simple graphical flair. While it is sad that fewer game soundtracks are featured than I'd have liked, the audio is well delivered, and...

Product Specifications

The two biggest names in gaming meet on the world's grandest stage in the ultimate test of skill, endurance and sportsmanship. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games brings members of the Mushroom Kingdom and Sonic Universe together to go head-to-head in 20 Olympic events, from track and field to aquatics to shooting sports. The 16 characters are split into four groups and are categorized based on their prowess. Sonic and Yoshi belong to the Speed group, Mario and Amy Rose are All-Around competitors, Peach and Tails lean on the Technical side and Bowser and Knuckles are all about Power. There have been Olympic-style games in the past, but none could offer the fun, interactive experience the Wii Remote provides. Along with the Nunchuk controller, the Wii Remote lets you simulate the hammer throw, shoot arrows, replicate swimming strokes and more. Players can also discover secret boosts to help them get that winning edge. Wii athletes will go for the gold medal in three game modes: Single Match, Circuit and Mission. In Mission mode, the game challenges you to complete a task by using a specific character during an event. In Single Match and Circuit modes, players can select whichever character they want and try to achieve a world record. And it really can be a world record. Thanks to the WiiConnect24 functionality, those with Internet access can see how their high scores and best times rate against others around the world. Who will break the most records, Mario or Sonic? You finally get a chance to find out!
