Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games
Family Friendly Gaming

Excerpt: Sega is honing their craft on the Mario & Sonic video games. The latest iteration of this franchise is Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games on the Wii. There will be a Nintendo 3DS version of this game coming in February 2012. I saw this game at E3 2011, and it was very impressive. This Wii game impressed Family Friendly Gaming so much that it was awarded the Silver Medal E3 Award.
Excerpt: It’s been a while since we’ve covered a Wii game; it seems the platform has truly become the lame duck we expected after the announcement of the Wii U. However, there occasionally comes a sports game that is truly unique to the platform, and therefore, deserves at least a passing look.

Excerpt: Early as it is, sports lovers are already abuzz about next year's Summer Olympic Games. With tickets harder to come by than a tea-time chat with the Queen, the closest most of us will ever get to the event is Sega's newest title, Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Unfortunately for us, this half-inspired, half-humdrum sequel offers an experience of the Games that's more bronze than gold-medal-worthy.
Pros: Crazy Dream Events, The fast-moving fun of London Party mode, Checking Scratch Cards to see if you've won anything
Cons: A predictable Sporting Event mode, Repetitive character voice lines, Not enough new content to justify purchase
Excerpt: Mario (Super Mario Land 3D - Nov 11) and Sonic (Sonic Generations - Nov 11) are probably the hardest working video game characters in 2011, both with current gaming releases and this time their working together! Even though both characters are from two different companies, SEGA have brought them together again in Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games in this friendly collection of competitive mini-games.
