Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games - Wii

Join your favorite characters, from Mario and Sonic to Princess Peach and Amy, as they team up and compete in the most exciting sports events at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. Compete in 24 thrilling events including bobsleigh, skiing, figure skating pairs, and even snowboard slopestyle, which will make its Olympic debut in Sochi, Russia!

Feel closer to the action than ever before with the first entry in the Mario & Sonic series to utilize the Wii U GamePad and Wii Remote Plus controllers. In Biathlon, a cross country skiing/shooting hybrid, you’ll even use both as you switch controllers on-the-fly to earn the coveted Gold Medal. In addition, take on Snow Day Street Hockey, Rollercoaster Bobsleigh, and more supercharged Dream Events that combine familiar sports with outrageous settings, rulesets, and extreme action! And for the first time, head online* for global competition to help earn top scores for your home country! Let the games begin!

Fun and entertaining game November 24, 2013
Reviewer: Jordan B.  
Overall, this game does a lot of things right with the content it provides. There are numerous Olympic Events mixed with a few fun made up games that have the ability to keep your attention and wonder for many hours. Each event has its own individual method of perfection and it will take sometime to master them all in order to get the highest score. My only complaint about the events is that they seem to demand the Wii mote more than the gamepad. When one the main selling points of the Wii U is that gamepad, why have such a mainstream game focus so much on old technology. Having the ability to use your Mii in the events is also a great function. Dressing your Mii with new customs and equipment to change not only his cosmetic look, but his attributes is a lot of fun. Personally I would say if you are looking for a fun multiplayer game this is probably the way to go. However, I think your single player experience will fall short eventually since beating your high score only goes so far.

Winter olympics fun for the Wii U! November 21, 2013
Reviewer: Thomas R.  
This could have been a great game but it is plagued by repetitive controls and just some boring gameplay. If you own a Wii U and you love the olympics you might want to rent this title first otherwise give some of the other Wii U titles a try.
