Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games
24 June 2010
Excerpt: I was hoping for great accessibility in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games on the DSi XL since I just finished playing two other games that didn’t really let me get away from being disabled. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is my first ever encounter with using the shoulder buttons on my DSi XL and it ended up being not so pretty.
Excerpt: I was hoping for great accessibility in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games on the DSi XL since I just finished playing two other games that didn’t really let me get away from being disabled.
Excerpt: Two years ago, Mario and Sonic joined forces for the first time to compete at the Beijing Summer Olympics. The result was a middling collection of sports-themed minigames that failed to deliver on the potential of that once-forbidden union. Never ones to give up, Mario and Sonic have reunited to hit the slopes and skating rinks of Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Games.
Pros: Adventure mode makes good use of characters, Decent variety of events, Can play with up to four people from a single cartridge
Cons: Most event minigames are shallow and easy, Uninteresting mission objectives in Adventure mode

Summary: There are far worse games on the market that you could spend money on. This one will at least entertain you in multiple ways and certainly for hours. Sure it’s on the easy side, but it’s Mario & Sonic.
Excerpt: With a successful outing at last year's Olympic Games under their belts, two of video gaming's biggest heavyweights return for the 2010 Vancouver-based Winter Olympics. A new Adventure Mode and plenty of snowy sports are just a few of the new additions to this sports compilation.
Pros: The addition of the Adventure mode is a nice boon; multiplayer options make the events more interesting.
