Summary: We bought this game for our daughter, 9 years old, she really enjoys it. Looks like a great game. I am disappointed, however, that the box has the 'wifi' logo on the front.........which led me to believe that my daughter could play this game via wifi with her cousin in another state. Found out after we opened it that the 'wifi' logo only means that your stats can be uploaded and compared with others. BEWARE OF THIS SO YOU DONT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE.
Summary: I had high hopes for this game. When I learned it was coming out, I couldn't wait, and I bought it the day it was released. I'm a HUGE Sonic and Mario fan (and I LOVED Wii Sports) so naturally I had to have it. Let me start off by saying the game is fun. The graphics are great, and the option of playing as so many different characters and so many different events is enjoyable. And I actually LIKE having to move around with the Wii Remote.
Summary: The games are good but I bought this for my grandson who, whilst he want to play games is too young at 4yrs old to master most. so i thought a sports game would be best as he is a least getting some physical interaction as well but he cannot come to terms that the computer always wins!
A good fun Wii game that is probably for the younger kid

Excerpt: THE SUMMARY This is a game with style Sonic and Mario combine for this game based around the Olympic Games. Complete in your very own Olympics. It's all good fun. THE STORY All your favourite characters from the Sonic and Mario series come together to compete in the summer Olympic Games. Choose your character then compete in a variety of events competing for that elusive gold medal. THE GAMEPLAY There is a huge selection of events to undertake in this game.
Summary: I bought this because I really like all the other Mario games I've played but I found it to be a major disappointment. My kids like it okay but I haven't even been interested to play it long enough to unlock anything that is showing up locked. This is in contrast to my playing Mario Kart Wii for hours the first day I got it. With this game, the graphics are neat and the game is visually interesting, but I don't know..
Summary: When I bought the game I suddenly fell in love with it and couldn't put it down. After a while I did get bored but that was long after I bought it. There is so much to do and I love this game.
Conclusion: A great game to play with your friends. Very entertaining, a bit competitive obviously, but not the type of game that you'll reach for a lot when you're playing alone. It has fun features, you can even play with your Mii instead of f.i. browser, but it's not enough to stay addicted to it.
Summary: I rented this, and didn't buy it thank goodness. I personally think Wii Sports is a lot better than Mario & Sonic At The Olympic Games. I think kids will probably enjoy this game more than adults because of all the characters from previous Mario & Sonic games, but I found this game was more to do with pressing the correct buttons at the right time, rather than just interactively playing the sport.
