Summary: The events include several variations meter dashes and relays, long, triple and high jumps, swimming races & relays, trampoline and vault activities, skeet shooting, rowing, archery, fencing, hammer and javelin throws, & table tennis.
Summary: I've always liked Olympic competition anyway, and this game makes it fun and easy to compete against friends by using a lot of different well-known video-game characters. The Olympic events selected--such as table tennis--are a bit unusual for a game of this type, but the eclectic mix is part of the charm.
Summary: We haven't played this as much as Wii Sports resort but it is still fun. This game requires quite a bit more coordination than the Wii Sports games but that proves to be pretty entertaining :)
Summary: I bought this game as a gift for my boyfriend who is 20. i wasnt sure if hed like it but once we played together it is his new favorite wii game. he recommends it to his friends and talks about it very highly. The image quality was very good and The games are kind of hard to figure out at first you should read the instructions for each game. It was a fun competitive game and is more based on timing then anything else. Very fun and can play for hours.
Summary: I would give this game 5 stars if it wasn't for the massive event unlocking required and the slight rigid graphics. The game play is excellent but the hassle of unlocking every event can be quite annoying. Also, if your playing with friends and complete a tournament, the next tier isn't unlocked, only after beating it solo is the event unlocked. The controls to the game are very responsive.
Summary: This is another in the list of Mario video games. It is one of the better ones with a wide varity of actual Olympic games. Beware, it will keep players involved for long periods of time, not necessarily a good thing.
Summary: I bought this for my 8 year old son - a Mario/Sonic addict - and it is really fun. You can play many different sports - most of them revlve around running, but then so do the Olympics - and all of them appeal to one of our family members or the other. Good things: The wide spectrum of games, the different characters with different skills (making you pick someone based on what he/she can do and not on who he/she is), and the wonderful graphics.
Summary: We rented this one first and my mother had a blast. She's in her 50s and really got a kick out of the way the characters reacted to their triumphs and defeats. My husband thought the best entertainment was watching her really get into the game! I find myself hitting A a lot to skip over all the hoopla type parts and get to the actual game parts but it's definitely good family fun.
A bit hard for younger kids, not really E for everyone

Summary: We received the game and my husband and I struggled with it, it doesn't have clear instructions on how to manipulate the controllers for effective game playing. Our son who is 5 definitely can't play it at all, the games are much too hard. Otherwise, it is fun.
