"FINALLY, A GAME WITH MARIO AND SONIC! THE WHOLE WORLD COULD EXPLODE! THIS IS AWESOME!"That is everyone's first impression, but when they play the game....."Er..... the graphics are great and you get the play as all the Mario and Sonic characters......but the gameplay......"Yes, the gameplay sucks. It's just a sports game with the Mario and Sonic characters in it.That's it.There's no story, no reason for them being there. It was just to get the Mario and Sonic characters together for the first time.You know when you go to a party because your friends that you haven't seen in a long time are going to be there. You meet them, banter a bit, it all seems good and then 30 minutes later........"So er, what else have you've been up to?""Me? Oh erm....... nothing really?"And you stand there awkwardly trying to think of something to say and you can't understand why this moment isn't working.The excitement wears off faster than you know it.That's this game. Just because it has your fave characters, doesn't mean it's that great.It's also a very complex game to play. The controls are tough and very young players would be frustrated. So will older players. It doesn't have much of a replay value. You have no desire to play this game ever again after playing it.Most of the budget was spent on the opening cut scene, which is great, but no effort was put in the gameplay itself.It's not as fun as Mario Party, which is what they should have done. A Mario Party game crossing over with Sonic.That's what Nintendo and Sega should do instead of the next Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games..... game.
