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.
Summary: In Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games players will compete in events (100m track, table tennis, swimming etc.) that take place in venues based on the official Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, against a supporting cast of characters from the worlds of both Mario and Sonic, including Luigi, Knuckles, Yoshi, Tails and more.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for Nintendo Wii
18 December 2007
Excerpt: Last month Sega released the first game in which their popular Sonic The Hedgehog meets Nintendo's Super Mario. Yes, you read this right. For the first time ever Mario and Sonic meet up in a video game, who would have thought this would ever happen.
Excerpt: Game: Mario & Sonic At the Olympic Games Genre: Mini-Game Platform: Wii, DS (Reviewed on Wii) I came into work this morning already in a foul mood from the great Rock Band debacle , and found a copy of the recent Wii release Mario & Sonic: At the Olympic Games on my desk waiting to be reviewed. I hoped that maybe some quirky Olympic-style mini-games with Nintendo and Sega’s respective mascots might brighten my spirits a little bit.
Summary: Were someone to invent a time machine, take a spin back to the mid-90s and tell a group of hardcore gamers that Mario and Sonic would one day appear in the same game, it’s likely they’d probably be torn limb-from-limb by furious fanboys. But while a game that combines the powers of gaming’s greatest mascots may sound like a dream come true, Olympic Games fails to capture the dynamic duo’s time-honoured charms.
Summary: The two legends of old skool platform gaming join forces to bring you a game that gets every Mario & Sonic fan drueling! Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games puts Mario characters against Sonic characters in a battle for supremacy as they take eachother on at the Olympic Games (funnily enough!).
