Mario and Sonic: London Olympic Games
This game is okay, but way too boring. The controls are dumb, too. I was expecting WAYYYYY better from SEGA.
Stick with M & S at Beijing.
Unless you really like minigames, I'm not sure you'll like this game. This was a huge disappointment. I loved the 2008 and 2010 games, and I thought this one looked great because of all the events it has. But, I found that they are basically just minigames. The marathon is just a water bottle-grabbing minigame, and badminton is just a minigame of how well you can judge if the shuttle will go in or out of bounds. Every event seems like it should go alongside with something bigger, but there wasn't anything bigger. Character selection was also limited. There are classes of characters, like "Heroes", "Wild Ones", etc. Each event only allows a certain class of characters to participate. I was totally bored with this game after trying each minigame only once or twice. If you want to play a Mario and Sonic Olympic Game, stick to the Beijing and Vancouver versions on DS.
mario and sonic 2012 olympics 3ds, WHY???
Mario and sonic at the london 2012 olympic games was very fun, for the wii, the 3DS version however is not fun at all. remember those full sport events and amazing dream events the wii version had? well, this version has none of that, instead we get weak events and a terrible story mode. The 3ds version had more events than the Wii version, but these events are mostly just mashing buttons, like the 100 meter sprint event, here's all you need to do to win first place in the 3ds version, hold the A button until the race starts, then mash the A button until the race ends. also the boxing event, all you need to do is hold the a button the let go of the button before your opponent does then, you win. also remember how you could select any character you want including you mii in the wii version, say goodbye to that, here there are 5 teams of characters set for each event and that is ridiculous, who wants to see bowser and the other 3 power type characters playing tennis? also the absolute worst part,in the weightlifting event, you have to YELL AT YOU 3DS MICROPHONE, WHY... just why? also this game is not very portable at all, because a lot of games involve using the 3DS gyroscope, you move and tilt the system and this can be fun, but this game really doesn't know it's limits with it. almost half the event's involve using it, the only half decent events are the ones that use only the buttons and stylist. but they are so overshadowed by all of these other events. now to the story mode that I mentioned earlier, what happens is Bowser and doctor Eggman are mad that they didn't get invited to the Olympic games so use a fog machine to cover the city in fog. WOW!!! that's probably the worst video game story I ever heard. my two favorite villains in video game history team up and the best they can come up with together is covering the city of London in fog, that's really sad. anyway you find evil fog versions of mario and sonic and other characters and you must defeat them all, now how do you defeat them? you play against them in Olympic events this makes no sense, so eventually you make it to Bowser and Eggman and instead of an epic final boss fight, you play against them in regular olympic events. WOW that's the most pointless thing i have ever seen. so if you want to play this game get the Wii version, you will have fun with the wii version way more than the 3DS version.
This was the first 3ds game I ever played and I enjoyed it a lot. The game has amazing 3d qualities and an excellent story its also really fun with it having Mario and sonic in it.
this game's grapics pop out at you and have a very large and fun seletion of mini games and competions.I have to say this game is the best when played with 1 -3 other people i luv it sooooo much really
mario and sonic at the london 2012 olympic games.
this game is amazing. it is better than the wii version. but there are some times where to win an event you have to do something foolish (blowing into the microphone, shouting at your 3ds, etc) also in those events you have to bend your 3ds and it will sometimes go back down. but this should not be a problem if you have the 3ds xl. so overall it is fun. and it realy is the only phisical game for the 3ds.
GOOD GAME BUT WON'T LAST YOU LONG
hello gamers and welccome to my next review which is mario and sonic at the london 2012 olympic games. if you choose adventure mode it starts when bowser and eggman strike again. they have built magical fog machines that will ruin the olympics for everyone. the fog also creates these fog clones of the main characters and you must beatt them in various olympic events. there are 5 main stories. heros girls wild ones and villans. heros are mario luigi tails and sonic. girls are peach daisy amy and blaze. wild ones are knuckles DK vector and bowser. the villans are wario waluigi eggman. the other group of people are shadow bowser jr silver and yoshi. even though there are over 60 events the game won't last long. you can also make your own medley. the 60 events are fun to play and use a wide variety f controls to use. from track and field and water events to contact sports and shooting events. so overall this game is pretty good and I recommended it to a 3ds owner
Needs more events
The events are accurate, and the storyline is neat, but the events get old real quick. As for the 3d, beware all you 3d freaks (I am not one). The 3d is probably the WORST i've EVER seen. Some abilities are neat like the online score chart, but some are missing like online gameplay. You can only pick from four characters per event, and to make it worse, the game decides which four. Finally, the only reason I would recomend it to everyone is because you can play with four friends via local wireless.
Mario sonic at the londen 2012 olympic games is an excellent game, great graphics just as were on the wii version, very good story and has many excellent sports. All most no flaws except for one thing, for certaint sports you can only play certaint characters, like on judo you an only play walawigi, wario, eggman and metal sonic, but other than that the game is perfect.
I love this game so much that I might don't trade this!If you're a fan of Mario&Sonic,get this game!
