Excerpt: "I bought this game because the commercial made it look like great fun! Unfortunately I was a bit disapointed, firstly most of the game is locked. You Have to unlock it by compleating games at a certain level, this can be quite hard and very time consuming. I have had the game for 8 months and I got bored trying to unlock some of the more interesting events. On the up side if you are able to unlock all the events you have a wealth to choose from. Including ...
Pros: Lots of mini games to play
Cons: Takes far too much effort to unlock them all
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii): bit of a waste of cash
28 May 2009
Summary: When I first got my wii I was really excited to but this game as I was a huge fan for Mario and Sonic back in the good old days. I found this game quite difficult to play with having to remember all the different moves for the different events. Some of the events like the trampolining are really easy to pick up but others - swimming are really hard to pick up the rhythm and once you loose it I found it really hard to pick up again.
Conclusion: I was excited about this game, but now it has started to bug me. There is alot of choice in games which are quite enjoyable, which is proberly the reason it got 3 stars. But it takes so long just to get on a short race! You chose the type of game, athletics, swuimming etc. then you have to sometimes have to chose a sub category. Then you chose what race you want 2 play, 100m, 110m hurdles etc. Then next you chose how many players. Then u chose wat character.
Summary: Im not an avid gamer but i do like to have all the consoles and a few games for each, and always make sure that i have mario and sonic because there such good fun. Having heard that at last mario and sonic had settled their differences and were going to come together in a game i couldn't wait for it to hit the shops as i was eager to get my hands on it.
Pros: Sonic and Mario together
Cons: repetative and have to unlock all the events
Summary: I loved playing Wii sports - it takes a while to master the controls and the level of technique is quite deep - it takes a lot of practice to get to professional level on most games. So looking at the rave reviews on this game I had very high hopes!!!! However - I have found myself bitterly dissapointed by this game overall. Yes it is well presented and in theory should be great fun - but it really does lack any level of serious gameplay.
Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (Wii): Fun all round.
10 January 2008
Summary: Mario and Sonic olympics could be a great game in theory. However there are a few flaws. The features are very good, the game feels authentic with the olympic sponsership. The game modes are also quite good, although most will probably be buying for the multiplayer options as opposed to the single player ones.
Excerpt: Io ho provato questo gioco sulla nintendo wii ovviamente e secondo il mio punto di vista e secondo i miei gusti ho trovato questo gioco non eccessivamente bello perchè non ci sono veri e propri campionati con cui una persona più giocare a lungo e con pas ...
Pros: All'inizio piace ma poi . . .
Cons: poco approfondito come gioco e fa stancare subito di giocare
