    The graphics are great, choice of characters is great, amount of different and unlockable events is great - BUT the events themselves feel poorly realized. The controls for most of the events amount to little more than mashing buttons and scratching the screen as fast as you can. There are a few good games in the mix here, but not worth $35.

  1. It doesn't quite live up to the historic pairing of gaming's two biggest icons, but then again, not much could. [Feb 2008, p.88]

    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is a really good competitive game that's a better multiplayer outing than a solo one. Even though it looks and sounds great, the DS version of the title loses a bit of its impact due to its "me too" design against a slightly superior one that launched almost three months prior.
  3. If you're the type of person who loves to play mini-games, particularly enjoyed the first Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games, or are a casual gamer who's looking for a fun, albeit easy and short-lived title, then you should definitely consider picking up a copy of Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.
