Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games gets a review it should be proud of!

User Rating: 7.5 | Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games WII
Yesterday, at the time of writing, was Christmas Day, and i was very happy to find the "Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games" game for Wii. This was gonna be interesting on what this game was going to be like. I've already got "Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games" and "Mario & Sonic at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games", so, it was all about what was new in this game, and i wasn't disappointed.

The Mini-games on single player consisted of some old mini-games from the 2008 Olympic games game, and some new additions, like Horse Riding and Football. I especially like the dream events that they've added to this game. One of them is Dream Space walk, which, if you didn't work out already, is set in Super Mario Galaxy 2, yet has an original Super Mario Galaxy monster. The idea is that you guide your character to some on-screen circles by tilting the Wii remote up, down, left and right and defeating Peewee Piranha. on the first attempt at this game, it wasn't the easiest to complete first time, it takes alot of practice.

All 20 chracters from the winter Olypmic game return as usual, though with a few voice changes. What;s strange is, is that Yoshi isn't one of those that had their voices changed, despite the voice change in Super Mario Galaxy 2.

The music in the game come from both Nintendo and Sega games, most of them come from either Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 or Sonic Heroes. The invincibility music comes from New Super Mario Bros.Wii.

They also have a London Pary mode, which allows for maximum multiplayer possibility. You go round London, competing in events and collecting stamps for your team. the most stamps wins. simple enough.

THis game gets a 7.5 out of 10, simply because of the multiplayer advantages it has over the previous Olympic game from 2008. The only problem is, is that the game consists mostly of arm actions, which leaves you with alot of tennis elbow....which isn't good. all things considered, its not a bad game, so go buy it! its great for the family!
