If you enjoyed Mario and Sonic's first two Olympic games titles (which I did), then you will hate this one. This game plays like a bad party game. You wander around London doing party mini games that have nothing to do with the Olympics. You also can only play single Olympic games, nothing like the first two titles where you actually got to go through a whole series of games and upgrades. Simply a terrible game.
I've played games like Mario party but I am totally in love with this game. Besides the fact that you get to ride horses and swim. I love that you can play as any character from Mario or Sonic. This is truly a great game I'm glad that I played and bought it from Gamefly

I had recently played this game and was excited to play this game when I saw how nice the opening cut scene looked. The gameplay controls are easy to use swing the wii remote up to start running, swimming and cycling. You use the b button to jump and A button to shoot in the shooting events. There is not a whole lot of variety in this game, you either compete in single events or the mario party type london party events which are mainly collecting stickers or answering olympic question quizzes. The Graphics are really good on this game with all the sonic and Mario characters and Olympic arenas looking like the real life counterparts. I wish they would have spent as much time on the gameplay and fun factor as they did on the graphics and the characters. Better luck next time sega.
