Summary: Parents need to know that this Olympic-themed party game is safe fun for the whole family. Aside from some mild cartoon shenanigans -- such as shooting turtle shells from a hang glider -- everything in Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games is safe for consumption by children.
Summary: Mario and Sonic face off once more, and the results are grand.
Pros: All of the Olympic Events are unlocked from the start, Dream Events are fantastic nostalgia trips, Festival mode is a great training and single-player mode, Great Wii Remote controls along with smart Balance Board integration, Plenty of modes to participate in
Cons: Dream Events still need to be unlocked, No multiplayer when using the Balance Board, Timing is still an issue with some events
