Quoted from Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games reviews & previews
"Mario and Sonic’s sporting antics make for an enjoyable 3DS debut that radiates character and graphical prowess, together with a wide array of varying competitive events and versatile methods of play, though a weaker multiplayer offering ensures a Silver Medal for Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games’ long-range appeal."
"Overall I found this collection to be pretty fun though, but it doesn’t do anything that’s particularly mind blowing. It’s competently put together, contains a fair amount of content for a mini-game collection, and really tosses in the kitchen sink when it comes to summer Olympic events. It’ll definitely appeal more to a younger audience, but I think it’s worth checking out for 3DS owners."
"'...if you’re looking for an enjoyable mini-game collection on the go, with a decent single player experience and fun multiplayer options thrown into the mix, then you really can’t go wrong with this trip to foggy (Bowser did it!) ol’ London.'"
"Perhaps attempting to appeal more toward gamers on the go, the events here are mini-games, purposefully reduced in design and control. A game of soccer/football, for example, has been streamlined to focus on penalty kicks instead of a more complete version of the sport. Games like tennis or volleyball are likewise limited, opting to simply have you hit a ball with timed button presses or stylus swipes rather than position your players on the court."
"On that note, we had a good time with this one, especially with so many famous faces (Peach, Metal Sonic, Tails, Wario) to choose from, but there's a definitely lack of depth that may derail your potential enjoyment, and Sega made a bad decision by restricting characters to certain events."
