Summary: My kids really enjoy playing this game. But they say it's not what they expected they thought it would be a longitudinal game and there would be more challenge and a storyline between sonic and Mario. So they play it but will get bored of it soon....
Summary: We borrowed this from Redbox first and my kids (11 and 6) absolutely fell in love with it. Why? I can't say; perhaps its vibrant colors and variety of gameplay, plus the various character options and the custom clothing somehow 'does it' for them. Myself, an experienced gamer in my thirties, I found that most of the games don't control well and the announcer voice is over-the-top annoying.
Summary: My son loves this game. Then asks me why this, that or the other thing about half the game, because he can't figure it out.I feel that kids will find the positives in this game and will love it for that. For me it is too basic for experienced video gamers and not flexible enough for beginners. Controls are often shake wii and press b. Other times I feel like i'm doing yoga. I read good reviews about previous olympics and my son wanted this so I bought it.
Summary: Although I am enjoying playing this game with the family I was a little dissapointed. I expected more from the games and found them very short. However the children seemed to have a ball while playing. Myself well I prefer the Mario Sports.
Summary: Got the game for Christmas and gathered the whole family round for multi player action! The events are good fun, some much tougher than others, and the dream events are great fun in multi player mode! Spent all of new years day taking it in turn on multi player mode with the family and as the controls are pretty easy to master, there was something for everyone. London party mode was a fun little break as well, although we didn't play that too much just yet.
