Product Description

Street Fighter x Tekken makes history as fighters from these two bastions of the fighting genre come together for the very first time. Utilizing the same 2D viewpoint and technology that powered Street Fighter IV, this game allows for Tekken characters such as Kazuya Mishima and Nina Williams to make the transition into the Street Fighter universe having been re-imagined using Capcom's much-loved art style. Their looks may be different, but these characters have retained their own unique characteristics and signature moves as they go head-to-head with classic brawlers from the Street Fighter franchise in what promises to be an explosive match up.

As one might expect, there are similarities between this game and the original 2008 version of this game set in Beijing and the 2010 Winter version set in Vancouver. First, this version of the game is timed to coincide with next year's Summer Olympics in London, so expect to see a lot of references, venues, and trivia to the UK throughout the game. Second, like those games, this is essentially a set of mini-games where you can compete against the computer or each other in various events. Third, you get to choose players from both the Sonic and the Mario worlds to compete, or use your own Mii.

In all honesty, I came in with tepid expectations. After all, these same games have been done already many times by many publishers by now. So with each new mini-game I tried, I braced myself for the same-old, same-old.

But time and time again I was surprised at how fun and fresh each game was to play. Sega has taken an aging franchise and managed to breathe some new life into it.

Here's a list of the traditional mini-games:

Aquatics: There are two events under aquatics. You can compete in a traditional swim meet, where you wave your Wii remote and nunchuk to various swimming strokes. Or, you can compete in "synchronized swimming", where you (and any teammates) need to move your remotes in sync with each other.

Badminton: In this game, you basically whack a shuttlecock back and forth. This is not a very realistic simulation; you can't really aim your shot or do many specialized shots. As you play each side will build up energy which can be used to employ "power shots" that are difficult (but not impossible) to return.

Canoeing: In this game, you wag the remote forward and back to the proper timing to coincide with your canoers' strokes.

Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics is great family friendly game. I was reluctant to get this game at first because I usually play games alone.It is a 4 player "party" type game full of mini events from the Olympics as well as "Dream events" that take place in mario and sonic based levels.The game has a great cast of mario and sonic characters as well as the use of your Mii's.After doing events you get scratch cards that you can win music from Mario and sonic games as well as costumes for your Mii, the costumes add Stats to you me such as Speed and Power that will applay to your mii in events.
On top of all the great fun events There is London party mode where you can travel around the city playing mini games like Find Espio ,and Olympic trivia to collect stickers.
The game has great controls and is challenging enough for an experienced gammer.The game also has online leaderbourds so you can see how good you are vs players from around the world in some events.

I've been having soo much fun playing this alone and can't wait to play with frinds it has a great amount of content, this was a excellent purchase. Highly recomend for your self or family.

Seeing Dr. Eggman do the rhythmic ribbon alone will justify buying this game

Our 4 year old grandson loves this game already. He's only been playing it for 30 minutes & we've been trying to figure out how to play it so he can play it. However, he's doing better at it by figuring it out on his own. He loves the "dream sequence" games. Personally, I think the regular olympic games are cuter. Graphics & songs are superb on all of the games. Lots of characters to choose (his favorites are Bowser, Bowser Jr, Yoshi, Mario & Wario). There are directions for each game & dream sequence game, however a certain impatient boy keeps pressing A too fast for me to read so we've been guessing. Imagine when we actually know the directions before we play! Ha! I'm glad our grandson is enjoying it. He loves lots of Mario games on Wii.

2/10/12 - Update: my 4 1/2 year old grandson still loves playing this game: it's his favorite now that he's learned about unlocking more "dream sequence" games (by playing more of the olympic games & achieving "awards" & "emblems". He's only allowed to play this game when he visits us - otherwise he'd be on it constantly at home. So far, he's unlocked 5 "dream sequence" games. When he takes a break from this game, he also plays my Vancouver olympic 2010 mario sonic game next. (Then Mario Kart, Mario Galaxy, & Mario Sluggers).

8/5/13 - My grandson is now 6 years old & decided to play this game again. Hadn't played it for a few months after being distracted with other games. He still loves this game & now his younger brother (age 3) is highly interested in it (but not quite ready to play). It's always cool to see a game be enjoyed again. Even better since grandson is older & is even better at it so he's happier. Still a challenge so it holds his interest. :)
