I was expecting more,
This review is from: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
After owning and loving the Sonic and Mario at the Olympic games (the summer games) we were very excited to purchase this. We personally prefer the winter games over summer, and there was genuine interest with my kids (7 and 9) in playing the various games in this title.
However, I'd say this game was a bit of a letdown. While it was fun, the various events were simply not that challenging. Most of the events require the same sort of "skill", that being simply tilting the remote while you try to stay on a path (i.e. skiing, bob-sledding, etc.).
We made it through the "Festival" in a matter of hours and earned Gold in every event (setting WRs in most of them). While the kids enjoyed how much they dominated there was little drama in the events and soon it became a little tiresome.
I almost feel the designers hurried to get something out and creativity was affected.
I'd recommend waiting a few months to purchase this for less than $20.00, but anything more spent would not be a good investment, in my opinion.
