Sadly this game falls short of a Nintendo or Sega fans attention. I will be first to admit, when i first played this game it was fun on but sadly the entertainment became very lack-luster after the first hour of gameplay, because throughout the entire story mode you are following the same system over and over again. The game has many obvious problems for example the 3D feature is almost unavailable in the game because its always asking me to put my DS on my desk. Also some events fall short of grabbing someones interest because all the fun events are much to short while the boresome ones are far too long. Medleys are not even close to comparing to London Party from the Wii version of this game. Back to the story it puzzles me that they why they didnt incorporate the free roam feature from the characters winter olympics. With gameplay being a gamers main focus in the game why do they limit you to categories of characters and for 4 character team events why even bring up the character select screen when you use all the characters anyways. With the limitations in this game it really blocks creativity for the player to use since Bowser cant do Floor or Judo (Unless faced in story mode). Personally I would buy the Wii version of this game in a heartbeat but its personal preference but for you Nintendo and Sega two words " Next Time". Full Review »

The Wii version is way better. The great dream events were all thrown out. The story mode is not as good as the Wii. The Miis are gone too. WHY?! This 3DS game is a 5/10 only because the graphics are okay and it is at least playable. Full Review »
