    Unfortunately there are only 14 disciplines included, but those deliver quite some fun.

    Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games offers a fun gaming experience to young gamers. Aside from a few mini-games that can be quite painful, the game makes smart use of the 3DS' capabilities. That being said, the game will probably be too simplistic for hardcore sports fans.

    Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games on the 3DS is a collection of fun and some forgettable mini-games!

    Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games has all the makings to be a strong multiplayer game for Nintendo 3DS, but it fails to stick the landing due to the misstep of not including an online multiplayer.

    Mario and Sonic aim for gold but just about scrape bronze, a good effort but more training is required.

    Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games is a party game featuring a rich cast of 40 characters from the worlds of Super Mario and Sonic, who battle themselves through the Olympic events. Unfortunately, a set group of characters is limited to certain events, the story mode is short, flat and somewhat uninteresting.

    Mario & Sonic at Rio 2016 Olympic Games on the 3DS is a disappointing collection of hastily cobbled together minigames. There's some fleeting fun to be had, but most of its sporting disciplines are an exercise in repetitive drudgery.

    This is a good game. Not the Best in the M&S Series but still great. The graphics are outstanding for the 3DS. I still have not yet played allThis is a good game. Not the Best in the M&S Series but still great. The graphics are outstanding for the 3DS. I still have not yet played all the Events/Sports in the Game but my favourites are Boxing, Football (Soccer), BMX, and a few more. The character selection though, is what messes up this game. Contenders? Are you serious? That is the only thing that ruins the game. Road to Rio is pretty fun and Pocket Marathon is awesome. Win stuff just for walking. I got A LOOOOOOOT of steps when I was visiting my Family in Tokyo because I would take my 3DS Everywhere, Tokyo is where I walk a lot. Whenever I'm out in the streets, or taking pictures or videos of trains, I win stuff at the same time. The costumes and outfits look amazing, although my Mii can't fit most of them, I just bought them anyway because they looked cool especially the Koopalings! Mario and Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (M&S Rio 2016) is a good game and I would recommend it. Really fun. Although I do wish Soccer was a little faster, I've been playing quite a bit of Super Mario Strikers on the GameCube as well, so sometimes I do mess up but that is okay. I tend to score anyway.

This version has okay gameplay and mediocre graphics. Expand
