Mario And Sonic At The Olympic Games

Posted on 11th March 2008 by admin in Game Reviews

For the first time in history, Mario and Sonic are appearing together in a video game, and it’s available on the Wii – they’ve joined together to star in a game that pays tribute to the Olympics in Beijing 2008: Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games.

The game features a cast of familiar characters from both the Mushroom Kingdom and the Sonic the Hedgehog games, including: Mario, Luigi, Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, Yoshi, Bowser, and Princess Peach. Players can choose to compete with or against any of these characters, creating a truly unique experience.

he Wii version of the game makes full use of the game system’s interactive controls, as players use the wireless remote to maneuver their character down the racetrack, across the swimming pool, leap over the high jump, or even play table tennis like the pros – if it’s an Olympic summer sport, it’s a part of this game!

Review - Mario Party 8

For decades man has tried to create the ultimate party and it seems that Nintendo has taken man one step closer by revealing Mario Party 8.

Mario Party 8 or simply MP8 is another game that relies totally one the Wii being the life of the party. The game sticks to the lines of all Mario Party games with all new arena’s and games to try. When playing the game it is once advised to play with friends and if you don’t have any, invite the neighbours around. The game itself consists of a variety of exciting radical games that are loads of fun when playing with a group. But I would not advise to purchase this game if you intend to just play against the computer. You will soon find yourself disheartened if you are in this predicament. Mario Party 8 now takes advantage of the Wii remote and it will either be used to shoot on screen or turn it sideways and it becomes a simply remote. The Graphic’s in the games are alright, but if you intend to buy the game just for the graphics I advise you not too.

But in all Mario Party 8 has certainly revitalized the franchise and given it a much needed boost to keep you playing and slagging your friends for hours and hours to come. I suggest you play the game with as many friends as possible to maximize your fun and keep you laughing with the games antics.

Cheers and Enjoy…. I certainly did.
