Summary: When I got this game for the Wii, I totally fell in love with it. so when I heared it came out for the DS, I was like "OMG! I must have!". so I got it, but it turned out to be no fun at all. For one thing, the game was impossible. the events are WAY too hard. 2, it was really weird how you did the events. Like table tennis,for example. you couldn't beat table tennis because the controls were so confusing. also, the graphics are horrible.
Summary: When it comes to minigames, Mario has shown he has the success. After the mammoth surprise success of Mario Party DS for the Nintendo DS, many were surprised by the new gameplay that brought life within the party. That also has shown within the rivalry between Mario & Sonic The Hedgehog back in the 90's with the console wars between Sega & Nintendo. But now that Sega had stopped making video game systems after the Dreamcast, they've made great games for other systems.
Summary: I have both Super Mario and Mario Karting as well as this game, and both of those two are great, but I wish this game was as good as them. I'm not saying its a bad game because its certainly not, Its just its not as good as it makes it out to be. At first its good but then once you've tried everything one its just boring. Plus my touch has gone funny now with all the hitting. The Graphics are good and so is the idea but its just not it for me.
Excerpt: This was my first Mario and Sonic joint venture purchase and I was intrigued to see how the two characters (former Nintendo/Sega rivals) would interact together for the first time. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is a good title and works well. There are a number of events to master including track and field, swimming, cycling, shooting and even table tennis!
Summary: This is a great game. There is so much to do on it, and the more you play new games are unlocked. There are many characters to chose from and you can even see how well you have done against people all over the world!
Summary: After all the hype and rave reviews I was expecting something quite exciting as I eagerly unwrapped this and loaded it up. After an hour I switched off feeling quite disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the graphics and the range of events are good, just not as brilliant as it's made out. I wish I'd waited for the price to drop before I bought it - although even now it's not as pricey as some DS games (Currently £16.99).
