Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
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. In some ways this video game reminds me of the old Track and Field game. There can be some crazy mashing with the controller to try and get that gold medal.
Favorite gaming icons compete in a lackluster Olympics.

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: 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.
Pros: Fun events that make a worthy Mario and Sonic game; Mii characters are playable; good graphics
Cons: Two events have some inaccurate motion controls; not all characters are easily recognizable
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. Most gamers who are now over twenty would have laughed in your face if, during the golden era of the Mega Drive and SNES, you had suggested the two systems' mascots would one day feature in a collaborative game.
