Today I went into Bestbuy with a giftcard I had gotten for Christmas. I wanted a Wii game, and was expecting to get Kirby Return to Dreamland, or Sin and Star Punishment, but for some reason, I ended up walking out with Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games. When I put it in my Wii and began to play, I was instantly hooked.
As I'm sure you can guess, I'm more of a Sonic fan than Mario, I love Mario, sure, but Sonic games have a bit more depth, plus, they have more difficult gameplay.
I played the 2008 Summer Olympics when they released, but I was ultimately bored with them, they didn't have anything that made them exceptional or extraordinary in anyway. I still enjoyed the game, but I can't say I've touched it in a good three years. I wanted the Winter games, but for some reason, I never ended up getting it..
Anyway, I can't believe no one has thanked you guys yet, the game is great. Ignore the criticism, as someone who has been playing minigame collections for years, this is honestly in the top three I've ever played.
The events are plentiful, and while I haven't tried them all, there aren't any that I dislike. I like horseback riding, I love the Dream Events (like everyone else.)
Now, London Party is the new feature in this game. It's similar to Mario Party, and man.. It's addictive! I turned it on, and before I knew it, three hours had past and I had done nine matches!
I also like the custom music feature, just like in Sonic Generations. As unfitting as it sounds, I like Coconut Mall with Dream Sprinting (my favorite sport, by the way )
More characters and a story mode would be nice, but nonetheless, this game will be in my Wii for quite a while.
THANK YOU, SEGA!
Anyway, nice job, SEGA! Whether there's more Olympic games, or a new kind of Mario + Sonic mix, you've got my support.
