I rented this game to entertain the kids at work (ages 8-12) thinking they might like it for the Mario & Sonic characters, at the very least. As it turns out, this is actually a pretty flippin' fun game! From the Hammer Throw to Synchronized Swimming to Dream Hurdles, the kids (& I) had a blast trying to out-compete everyone & setting records. All of the regular Olympic events require some degree of body movement (which is great), while all of the "dream" events require nothing more than an occasional flick of the wrist, making the game quite well-rounded. Your kids will love this game for at least three weeks (that's how long it lasted before they started asking what was next).

I got this game for Christmas and I just LOVE IT. I play the soccer event all the time with my brother on multiplayer. But, when I first got it, I selected my character for the London Party, (I was Amy) I'm like, "What the? Did her voice change?" Then I selected ALL the Sonic characters and I go,"NO WAY. ALL THEIR VOICES CHANGED" EVERY CHARACTER!!! But who cares? This game WINS. :)
Back in the day you had games that was worth playing and now it is shovelware after shovelware. Sure we have 2000 games but only 50 worth owning and enjoying; back then you had 1000 games and about 500 to add to your library. I am not getting a WiiU or any other system. The original and winter was better. This "game" took 1 month to program; the ad is better and more fun (watch it on Youtube). The presentation is terrible, the controls are broken, the london party is non existent where you walk around and then comes a bad game to collect stickers and after a few turns they steal your board and win. To play the games by themselves are just as bad; it does not recognize the controls. There is so much on the screen at all times that it gets busy. Get one of the other 2 games and avoid this one.
