Excerpt: Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Nintendo Wii is just what the title describes. Mario and Sonic team up to compete in Olympic events in Beijing. Characters from both franchises participate in some friendly competition.
Excerpt: Every gamer knows about Nintendo's Mario and Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog. Most gamers also know that Mario and Sonic have been long-time rivals in their video games. This rivalry can now be brought to life in the Olympic games.

Summary: Parents need to know that other than some comic mischief, you won't find anything questionable or offensive here. While some characters are apt to get a boot to the rear end now and then, "Mama Mia" is as close as you get to cursing.
Excerpt: While the sensational news that arch rivals Mario and Sonic would be appearing in-game together lost its shock value some time back, it is still remarkable to see the characters on screen together.
Conclusion: It is truly the sign of a great game when you spend an entire review talking about the gameplay and not the graphics or sound but it needs to be said that LittleBigPlanet looks and sounds great. From a graphical standpoint, LittleBigPlanet is beautiful.
