Mario and Sonic at the winter Olympics August 3, 2010
Reviewer: Ben Nicholson "Benkernow"  
Great fun, the games brilliant and fun to play especally with friends it gives a mixture of the proper games and the fun mario ones. There is also a nice career mode which you can do in a two player mode as well. It's better for more than 1 player and makes good use of the balance board. Lot's of fun especally for children. Mario and sonic have done it again.

Beautiful, but ... June 20, 2010
Reviewer: Beau Dure  
Bit of a different perspective here: Absolute beginner at Wii gaming. And another twist: I covered the 2010 Winter Olympics, spending most of my time in Whistler with a couple of visits to Vancouver.
From a sentimental point of view, I love this game. Some of the scenery reminds me of Vancouver and Whistler. It's very pretty.
The problems are:
1. The menu screens take forever. I'm worried I'll break my A button trying to get through everything.
2. The hockey game is a little convoluted. Surely there are better ways to play hockey on the Wii.
3. The "Dream" events are rather silly aside from the snowball fight.
4. Several of the games feel pretty much the same. That's the nature of the Winter Games, as many have noted. The curling action -- and I say this as a curling geek as well -- mimics actual curling quite well. Kids will like the familiar Mario and Sonic characters, even if some of the games are too difficult. Hoping for a few small improvements for Sochi 2014.

Pretty good June 12, 2010
Reviewer: Sara Avenarius  
This review is from: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games (Video Game)
I got this game and the summer Olympics game. This is a much more advanced game than the summer games one. This is a fun game and the controls are very easy to learn. I like the characters and the scenes. The game is a bit simple for me (being 23) but it's still fun with large groups. I think it would be a great game for younger kids.

Fun Game But Could Be Better May 15, 2010
Reviewer: K. Fullen  
While I really enjoy this game, i have found it to be misleading. It is listed as a WI-FI connection just like as in Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, etc.
This game is NOT available to play online against your friends. We have a lot of fun playing the game with our friends, and particularly enjoying Ski Jumping and of all things Curling! haha

Great Party Game April 23, 2010
Reviewer: John Watkins  
This is a great game to have a parties or if you have a lot of video game players living together.
Most of the games on it are simple enough to pick up pretty quick. There were only a couple that were kind of frusterating. I don't think it is meant to be a challenging game at all, just something fun. So if you are looking for more a challenge with Mario you would be better off getting Super Mario Galaxy.
My favorite game was the bobsledding and luge. It incorporates the Wii Balance Board. You sit on it and lean left and right to control the bobsleigh or luge.
Overall a very good game for the Wii!

Winter Olympic Fun April 13, 2010
Reviewer: L. Dasilva  
Took us a while to find this game, since the winter olympic games where going on at the time. But worth the wait. The kids Love it!
