Mario and Sonic at The Olympic Games is definately a game worth playing if you are a sports fan.This game makes fantastic use of the different capabilities of the Nintendo DS such as clapping into the microphone to hype yourself up for the long jump. Most events make great use out of the touch screen and all are very challenging,including track and field, gymnastics,boxing,archery- ,swimming and many more.There are also a great selection of Dream Events such as basketball,dream race,dream long jump,and dream table tennis.Lots of unlockables and records to break make this title a very enjoyable game with a high replay value.

I so enjoyed this game. It does get some getting used to when it deals both with the buttons and the stylus but it rocks nonetheless. It has all the games from the Olympics and each one is fun in their own right. Before each game you do have the instructions so you don't have to fuddle around with how to do something. I played this game for hours. My favorite game is archery. This is one game that i would purchase. Though one thing i did realize and agree with the critics. The stylus is used so much that i do foresee that eventually the bottom screen will become worn out.

This game is OK.The game doesn't take that long to beat.The character selection is interesting.The game also gets
repetitive some times when you can't beat a certain part.You are doing the same events but in a different order.Overall,it is a pretty good game.I would totally recommend it to young gamers.
