mario and sonic at the olympic games is pretty much.. based on the live olympics (Hence the name) and most events require the use of your stylus. if you don't have a stylus, you won't get far in the game (same goes for mario and sonic at the olympic winter games). the up-close character graphics are nice, however, i noticed that over in the bleachers in any event (not Dream events), the chao and shy guys and etc. look like... GBA sprites? and the minigames in the gallery are just too easy (got a high score of 98 in one level of that minigame where you control a shell and hit the goombas). The gallery is however good for learning facts about the olympics (though some are obvious, like the "The olympics never happened in which continent?" question).i I can tell that sega did do voices of the characters perfectly. Then, there's plenty of stuff you can do in the game, especially winning awards, or setting the world records for every event. couldn't they have added a story mode (though i can't think of any good storyline for this game).
yes: I recommend this product
