    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.

    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.

    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.

Additional characters include Metal Sonic and Donkey Kong, which is welcome in a game such as this, allowing for different ways to tackle the different events. The difference between each character, albeit not significant, do have minor impacts on the results of events. The video tutorials are annoying, and I have no idea why this was implemented, as even if you just want to know one move, you need to watch through the whole video to learn it, which is extremely tedious and unnecessary. Some events like the snowboarding and ice hockey feature good use of the DS touchscreen, but some events like cross country skiing do not, and offer little joy when you play them more than you need to. It's a good game overall, though. Full Review »
