  1. A challenging and satisfying collection of events to test your stamina and reflexes without making you sweat profusely.
  2. Some decent ideas then, but poorly executed. [Oct 2008, p.97]
  3. A few nice ideas spoiled by some blitheringly daft ones and duff graphics. "Mario and Sonic" are still the gold medalists. [Nov 2008, p.67]
