    For people who haven't played an Olympic Mario & Sonic, this might bring several hours of entertainment, even though some disciplines get boring too quickly. However, if you've played the previous version, a "been there, done that" feeling will soon pass over you.
  2. Solid if unspectacular. [Winter 2009, p.64]
  3. A decent-but-lacking adventure mode mixes some great and lackluster events, while multiplayer is a blast to play.
  4. It's got a lot of star power, but this collection of sports-themed minigames isn't Mario and Sonic's finest hour.

    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games should be a very solid package. Unfortunately, the mini-games on offer simply aren't all that exciting.
  6. Mario and Sonic at the Winter Olympics isn't a bad game, it's just not a particularly good one either.
  7. A collection of party and mini games that works when you have friends over but isn’t a lot of fun on your own.
