It is really fun but what disapionts me is that all the event are unlocked at the start and it is basicly just olympic games and winter olympic games combined

The plumber and hedgehog have taken over another Olympic games, and that’s not a bad thing. There are 21 standard Olympic events and 10 dream events that one to four players compete in for the gold.
The events include 110-meter hurdles, synchronized swimming, badminton, soccer, volleyball, fencing, and gymnastics.
This game is best played with three other people – just pick an event and go for it. The controls are simple to understand; this game will really appeal to the younger players or to the casual audience. And if you liked the past few installments of this franchise, then you’re going to like this one.
But there are some shortcomings to this game. It is one that should not be played single player, as the AI is no substitute for other humans. And the joy of getting gold gets tiring after a few goes. There are achievements to be unlocked, but you can do that with other players and have more fun.
Another problem is the material unlocked while you play the game. You get music from the Sonic and Mario games and a whole bunch of outfits for the Miis to try on. But there’s nothing here that really got my attention.
Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is a great party game – which means it’s not a good choice for single players. It’s worth a rent, and a possible buy.
