Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games (3DS)

PC Magazine
6 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games isn't quite world-class, but it’s a fun-filled romp through sometimes overly simplistic versions of Olympic events.
  • Pros: Numerous fun Olympic events. Bright, colorful visuals. Soundtrack features a nice mix of music styles.
  • Cons: Sometimes overly simplistic spin on Olympic events. You aren't given total freedom to select any character for any event.

Review: Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games

NintendoStar
19 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Title: Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Developer: SEGA Release Date: February 10th 2012 (EU), February 14th 2012 (NA) Platform: 3DS Once again Mario and Sonic are reunited under the pretence of the Olympic games. It’s odd that the pair only ever seem to acknowledge each other every 4 years but it doesn’t seem to affect their Olympic spirit… Sonic: Mario put the javelin down, I know it's been 4 years but I forgot to call Mario and Sonic at the London 2012...

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Review

Vooks
8 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Have you ever noticed how sometimes developers with large franchises don’t really have to try anymore? They’re built on the brilliance of their early efforts that earned all our trust, but are now happy to push out subpar products in the knowledge their previously well made name will guarantee sales.

Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games 3DS Review

Console Obsession
24 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Sonic and Mario in a game together is something that would have been completely impossible at one time, although they have now appeared in a total of four games together. Now, if only SEGA and Nintendo could come up with a way to incorporate both characters into a platformer, such a game would certainly grab the interest of many a player. That’s not to say that this latest and fourth game to feature the characters is a bad one, because it’s most certainly not.

Mario & Sonic: London 2012 Olympic Games 3DS

22 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The odds are you’ll have played a game like this before, especially if you’ve ever owned some of the more casual games on the DS Lite or Wii. The colourful cast will please younger fans and the graphics are nice, but in reality it’s all window-dressing for a game that could have been much more enjoyable than it is.

Mario & Sonic At The London 2012 Olympics (3DS) - Review

VGChartz
14 February 2012
  • Excerpt: A couple of months ago we received a review copy Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games for the Wii. So you can understand the feelings of déjà-vu I had when I recently received yet another copy of Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games , only this time for the Nintendo 3DS. But does this portable edition of the former rivals’ quest for gold hold up, or does it fall flat a few inches from the finish line?

Nintendo World Report
12 February 2012
  • Summary: I would say, "Mario and Sonic compete for the Olympic gold," but I'm not so sure that they even deserve a consolation prize.
  • Pros: Decent soundtrack, Extensive download play, Some of the games are really fun, Story mode has cut scenes, Top tier graphics
  • Cons: Most of the games aren't all that fun, No online multiplayer, Not enough content to warrant purchase, Some games feel broken, Vague instructions

  • Excerpt: Just like clockwork, SEGA have released their latest Olympic Games special to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics as two gaming universes come together to celebrate this event. As a plethora of Nintendo and SEGA characters are featured in this single-player and multiplayer game, there are over 50 Olympic inspired events (mini-games) to play and best of all, it looks thoroughly impressive in 3D, especially due to the colourful visuals that grace this cartoon looking...
