Summary: The game is great, except there are great events not in it this time. But what was really interesting was the characters. Yoshi is just as fast as Blaze. The Power type is way to fast and also be strong. The Speed needs to be faster and Power need to be slower.
Summary: All in all this is a great game. There are though a few problems. Those of you who liked the first version and the 400, there is no 400 in this one. Neither is there Pole Vault or High Jump. In Swimming there is no relay. Archery also is no longer there. All the Dream Events are still great, all of them are different. Pretty good at an overall view.
Summary: I actually haven't played this game yet, but my kids have. My son wanted this game for his birthday, but so far has only played it a couple of times. I still think it was a good buy since you can't go wrong with Mario games. We have the Winter olympics game as well. We like how both games give you a bunch of different options of play. My son likes the summer games because he's more into those sports. It's something my younger kids can play and I like that!
An updated set of Olympic games that surprisingly still seems fresh and new
26 November 2011
Summary: As one might expect, there are similarities between this game and the original 2008 version of this game set in Beijing and the 2010 Winter version set in Vancouver. First, this version of the game is timed to coincide with next year's Summer Olympics in London, so expect to see a lot of references, venues, and trivia to the UK throughout the game.
