Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games
19 September 2014
Excerpt: I wish more gaming companies would "cross-over" and "share" their characters as nothing is more fun than pitting your favourites against each other which is generally the stuff of comicbook legends. Obviously something happened again, whether it was the planets aligning or some gaming god granting wishes because once again Mario & Sonic have reunited for another thrilling sports game called Mario & Sonics at the Olympic Winter Games .
Excerpt: SEGA® Corporation and Nintendo Co., Ltd today announced that two of the biggest video game heroes, Mario™ and Sonic™, will be coming together again, this time taking their rivalry to the snow and ice in another officially licensed Olympic-themed...
Excerpt: Sports games have been hit and miss on the Nintendo DS. It is like developers and publishers are not sure how to use this innovative little machine. Sega has found the right formula with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. This hand held video game is part sports game, and part party game. The mixture of Sonic the Hedgehog, and Mario the Plumber is really neat. I noticed certain levels had Mario items, and Sonic items.
Excerpt: Stunt Pilot is a simple game. Up, goes up. Down goes down and Boost…does. Your job? Fly through hoops, and don’t crash. Over the 40 or so levels you accrue points for finishing each stage, more points being awarded for a faster run. The perfectly pitched difficulty curve helps even the most gaming averse get involved.
Sports-themed party game is active, educational, and fun.

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
Conclusion: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games brings with it a good amount of events, most of which are done better in other games. This is one of the many Wii titles where enjoyment depends entirely on how it will be played in the household.

Excerpt: Major video game characters don’t cross over nearly often enough for my tastes. There’s something exciting about two or more major characters from different game universes appearing together, showcasing their unique abilities and gameplay styles, along with their rogues gallery of enemies and other distinct elements from their game worlds. Sadly, there are few examples where this is done well; the Marvel Vs.
