Another winner for Nintendo DS lovers. Using the same high quality 3D animation used on Mario Kart DS, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is packed with action. There are two teams, but the question is what are the teams? The title suggests Mario characters vs Sonic characters. The instruction book seems to suggest hero characters vs villain characters. Bottom line...it doesn't matter. The whole point is to do your best in the events no matter which character you choose.

The characters are:

From the Mushroom Kingdom:
Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Yoshi, Wario, Waluigi, and Bowser.

From Mobius:
Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shadow, Blaze, Vector, and Dr. Eggman.

The selection of events is impressive.
100m Dash, 400m Dash, 400m Hurdles, Long Jump, Triple Jump, Javelin Throw, Hammer Throw, 100m Freestyle Swim, 10m Platform Dive, Trampoline, Vault, Archery, Table Tennis, Fencing, Skeet Shooting, and Cycling. Plus, there are several special mini-games you can unlock.

So far, I kick butt in Archery, Javelin and Trampoline. I really suck at Skeet Shooting. It takes speed that I haven't yet developed. Also, the cycling has some complex controls I have yet to master, but I shall! I'm so-so at Table Tennis (Ping-Pong to us old timers), but watching those super charged finishing moves is always a blast. It's nice that some games are difficult to master. No point in making everything too easy.

Bottom line, this game rocks. Definitely a must have.

This game is pretty awesome, but the 2 player version with one game cartridge is alright, but not perfect. You can't do all the mini games on 2 player. Leave it up to Nintendo to not let one game cartridge let you do everything. The game is still very fun and you have about 6-8 mini games you can do with your partner. :) My husband and I do have an excellent time with each other trying to compete. If anything at all, do it on one player and pass it around, trying to see who gets the better score. Can't beat any game that has Mario and Sonic in it under $15. :) Can't wait for the 3DS version.

I love that Mario, Sonic, and other famous animated characters appear in this game. It has various sports games and so. However, I was not pleased with the controls from using the Nintendo DS/3DS stylus. This game would be more suitable for gamers who are patient and or love to practice.

I have never had a bad experience buying games through Amazon. I get them used when I can and if they are new they are certainly cheaper than retail stores unless there is some crazy sale at the time. Don't forget to keep your cases and all the product info and manuals so you can easily resell it through Amazon for close to your purchase price when your child has finished with it.
