Mario & Sonic at the Sochi Olympic Winter Games

Recommended Posts

Wow. That is a REALLY cool bit of detail. They could've just gone with the same generic victory poses for every character like they did in the past games, but to see them actually go to the trouble to make unique interaction animations between characters is very much appreciated. Kudos to Sega! Love the ones between the enemies like Sonic/Eggman and Mario/Bowser. XD

 Mario&peach and Sonic&Amy gets different poses in the figure skating pairs.

 

 

Heres another small detail, if listen to the crowd they will call out the player you are playing,

I was just playing as luigi, you'll here "Go luigi!" "Yay luigi" 

A nice touch would of been them saying "it's the year of luigi!"

I doubt it, but I'll try it out.

 

Edit: I did Sonic, Mario, Tails, Luigi

 

nothing new Sonic and mario were doing there poses and luigi and tails on opposite sides waving to fans.

 

I'll try the ladies just in case

 

Edit: same with them too, not gonna bother with the baddies.

Someone needs to try Eggman x Waluigi and/or Eggman x Wario.

 

Heard that Luigi x Daisy doesn't have one (whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?)

The game scored 49% from ONM. The final breakdown was as follows:

 

- Almost universally abject controls

- The mini-games you've struggled with before

+ Classy, TV show style to menu and games

 

"A series so successful it sees no need to improve beyond its template, even for new hardware. It gets the gold medal for pig-headedness, at least"

Seems like more personal issues from the wording.

these are pretty awesome my favorites hands down are Sonic & Eggman and Mario & Donkey Kong also Knux & Vectors was pretty cool too XD

 

That's really cool! With all of these characters on board the one thing I've been hoping for them to do is actually interact with one another, and these celebratory gestures do the trick with the dances, hi-fives and unison poses, even with the apprehension at times. Overall it is full of character despite it happening for just a few seconds. It's a minor thing but this is a very nice touch with this that brought a big smile on my face seeing the teams celebrate together. smile.png

 

Despite the mediocre scores of Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, I'm honestly not deterred from buying the game. Issues aside, the game still looks fun to me. Also that music...it sounds great! And besides, the Mario & Sonic series games are the ONLY games that my 8 and 7 year old nephews and 6 year old niece can play together without going at each other's throats. So seeing how the games have seemed to be a peacekeeper for them is another reason to get this game as well. happy.png

Yeah, thats also the only real bugger that I have with it (looking at videos mind you). Kind of wish it was like its wii counterpart that has alternate controls for each sport.
