This game looks WICKED! What I'm really excited about is that it will be released on October 13 instead of New Years Eve, so it comes out right on time for my birthday, which is one of the many reasons I will buy this game. I also like that they've added new characters like Bowser Jr and Donkey Kong. Me being a huge Mario fan, I can see myself playing this game over and over again on Team Mario. There's also a lot of new winter sports like snowboarding, skiing, ice skating and more. I hear it can also use the Balance Board used for Wii Fit, but since I don't have it, I can't use it. I hope Sega uses Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to let you play with people around the world, unlike the first one where you can only check records and crap like that. Mario And Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games looks like a freaking awesome game. Like I said before, it comes out right on time for my birthday in October. So I'll totally get the game for Wii at my local shop when I have the chance. I'm excited about the new events, graphics and characters they're adding. So I will definitely buy it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by xxfrosteexx Its way better than the first one
Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games is way better than mario and sonic at the olympic games.This game is awesome. The story mode is kinda short but kinda long but this game is very replayable. It has single mode and party mode which is up to four players. It has a great variety of characters to choose from. It has about the same as many games as the first game did. Some of the sports are: ice hockey, downhill skiiing, snowboarding, bobsleigh, skeleton, curling, speed skating, figure skating, indivudual large hill, halfpipe and a few more. This game has rivals in the story mode that appear. And it has snowball fights and dream events. If you are looking for a great game get this game. This game is well worth the money. It is awesome!!!!

Wow, second time around with this game should hopefully be it for this title. I mean the first one was ok but it had horrible controls that were difficult to master or relatively impossible. This remake (especially considering the events they show) looks like they work; lots of free form, team based gameplay that was a lot more fun. Ice hockey was my favorite part of the screenshots; not only did someone finally get the lines right, they actually make it look as realistic as possible with Mario characters. Hockey is such an underused sport on the Wii...it's a shame it took them until last year to finally get an NHL title on there. Thankfully Mario and the crew are finally on hand to hopefully make it one of the best sports on the Wii! As for what I see on the skiing portion...what's up with the portion that appears to have taken the last Mario Circuit course design from Mario Kart Wii and remade it into a skiing course? i thought it almost did look like they copied the course and placed it covered with snow (there's the item blocks in the same positions and everything) but perhaps this is just a design not a copy. Or at least let's hope so! hopefully for the skiing portion they look to We Ski as a guide for it...because that was easy to master!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Super Omega Gamer Dude I got more info!
It may be a small peice of information, but it might help you make the decision if you want to buy it. The info is that the game involves the Wii Balance Board (witch I don't have sadly). I'm not sure if the game needs the board, but according to the second video, it looks like it's pretty important as a controller. It may not be much to some of you, but for now, that's all I got. P.S.- If this info changed your thoughts about the game, I would highly consider New Super Mario Bros. Wii or Super Mario Galaxy 2, because I don't think either of them involve the Wii Balance Board. I hope my info helped give you a better understanding of this game (man, I wish I had a balance board!).

Rated 0 out of 10 by FlyersFan I wonder if this one will be better
OK, I love the Winter Olympics (especially the hockey) and i was pretty surprised by this game being announced so early. I certainly hope Sega figures out what made the ratings on the original summer olympics game go wrong. What I also wish is that Nintendo would come in and take over more of the project, not more like Nintendo loaning the Mario characters to Sega. The Summer Olympic games package just felt quite restricted, like good but not great. I hope there's a dramatic turnaround for the Winter Games (and some good Mario vs. Sonic hockey!!)

I had Mario and Sonic at the olympic games and im excited to see that theyve made a winter version. i knew they would after seeing how popular that last game was. all my friends had it and so did i. i know this is gonna be good, but i dont think it will be as good as the summer version because there arent as many events. and the events that they do have are not going to be as exciting as the summer games , but either way im definatley getting this game for Christmas
Rated 0 out of 10 by Intech36 what i hope to see
The first game was awsome and exiting. and most of all it gave you one great work out. The first game had a good selection of characters and events. some events were very hard like long jump for example. What i want to see in this next game (and i think im speaking for everyone) is a story mode. i bet that if the game had a story mode it will get a much HIGHER rating. other than that it was preety good.

I never thought there would be a second installment in the Mario & Sonic series. However now with the announcement of Mario & Sonic Winter Olympic games, I'm excited. Events such as snowboarding, skiing, bobsledding and more are included. Most of the cast is the same, but there's the addition of Donkey Kong, Silver, and Metal Sonic along with a few others, it'll make this game worthwhile. I can't wait for this game to come out, so far it's shaping up well. =D
