Rated 8 out of 10 by MARIOFAN25 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

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.
Rated 7 out of 10 by BlackPlumb Great for a week then boring
I got this game a week ago for free. At first I wanted to sell it but I wanted to try it out. I played some events and it was fun. Certain characters you can only be for certain events, like you cannot be shadow for all events just a few. it has a story mode, its not bad the story does kinda suck but you get too see a lot of characters. If you try hard enough you can beat story mode in less than a day, when you do beat it theres extra story Bowser Jr. It does not interest me though. It has multiplayer local and download play no online.
The bottom line is if your looking for a game to keep you entertained for a couple weeks to months this isnt your game. Its cool for a week and a half then boring. I never played multiplayer but it would be fun with it. I would not get this game if you have no one to play with.
Its not a bad game it just gets highly boring after awhile and i'm going to trade it in alone with sticker star.
BTW the story is cheesy. Don't expect a good well though story.
I would recommend if your looking for a good party game to play with people but other than that you wont last long.
Rated 0 out of 10 by nikkimel56 Will be Kinda Dispointing
This game in my opinion will be disappointing. I even saw the trailer and first I thought that it would be good game and it'll be fun, but then i thought of all the ds versions of mario and sonic and how they were really not that fun. They were OK but then they just got boring. The trailer was disappointing too because all you basically do is just move the 3ds around and press random buttons. The wii versions of mario and sonic were the BEST!!! So if im disappointing alot of people that want this 3ds version of mario and sonic, sorry to disappoint you, but this 3ds version of mario and sonic will be terrible.
Rated 8 out of 10 by nikkimel56 not bad, not bad at all
This isn't a bad game after all. I bought it on valentine's day and It was pretty fun. I wish they would have mii's in the game though. The story mode is pretty cool. The 3D animations are ok, they're not really 3D like, but they're kind of 3D. The sports are really fun too. First, I thought this game would be bad, but I've learned a lesson. Always try the game to see what you can experience about it. So, if you like mario and sonic, you should get this game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by 3dsbum 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MLBChris Looks fun and awesome
I downloaded and played through the demo like 10 times already, and couldnt stop. And that was only 5 of the games! there are many more in the full version. the M&S at london is one of the only or first 3ds games that really does take full advantage of the mic and tilt feature of the 3DS. All together, this game looks much better than the other ones for DS, and will be fun to play with friends through download play. Cant wait to get it
Rated 10 out of 10 by rockstar321 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by knucklestheechidna GOING TO BE GREAT!!!!
this game is going to be great. i have played the demo on the nintendo shop and have loved it and am looking forward to getting it. it has over 30 events great sonic characters and great mario characters. the wii might be more enjoyable but the 3ds is portable. i am not shore that it is online but that won't really matter. i am looking forward to playing as knuckles
Rated 9 out of 10 by bobbyflabby Great!
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.
