    The amount of events is just right to get the most fun for your money.

    Overall, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is an enjoyable experience that’s jammed-packed with Olympic-sized fun. With so many events and modes to choose from, all presented in Nintendo’s signature welcoming style, there’s something for everyone here. Just don’t expect a deep and engrossing experience; while there are nice extra touches like Story Mode and an added retro element, this is mostly a game meant for casual, bite-sized fun on the go.

    With a fun story mode and a ton of minigames there is a lot to love about Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. The game is full of fun facts about the event and history that keep you learning as you play. The map could be better and there maybe is too much reading involved, but that doesn't take away from the game in any big way.

    Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 brings Mario & Sonic once again to the next edition of the Olympic Games and the series' first game on the Nintendo Switch also means the return of motion controls, as well as a 2D retro-style section directed at the more old school demographic. The game's main plot is only available as a single player experience, which feels like a shortcoming but the game's new additions, events and minigames are certain to make for some very fun hours, even more so in the company of other players.

    Mario & Sonic at the Tokyo Olympic Games 2020 is an entertaining take on the sports-event genre that has, by and large, disappeared in the modern-day. The game aims for accessibility at every opportunity, and while nothing about it is particularly exceptional, it still has plenty of unique flourishes to offer, and the wealth of different events and simple controls make for an appealing casual multiplayer title. Thanks to a generous selection of events and a few neat gimmicks, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 is the best entry in this series.
  6. 60
    There's nothing wrong with Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020. It's presented with verve and for such a large range of mini-games, the fact that there's no true dud in there is impressive in its own right. At the same time, it lacks the competitive edge of the "proper" Olympics title this year, and is a little too feature light for its own good as either a single player or local multiplayer experience. That makes it throwaway. Good fun, sure. Well made, absolutely. But throwaway nonetheless.

    Though bold and colourful and accompanied with a dazzling score, Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games 2020's clumsy gameplay lacks the polish we've come to expect from games emblazoned by that iconic little plumber.

Swimming controls much betterThe first Mario & Sonic since Rio 2016 is a nice, fun sports game. Some events control better than others (eg. Swimming controls much better than Discus Throw imo), with the retro-aesthetic Tokyo 1964 events being highlights.

    The story mode is fine (basically, you play the events as well as some minigames), but I would've liked something deeper akin to the story mode in the DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games.

    I also would've liked every character being available to play as in every event. The exclusivity makes no sense to me.

    On the whole though, a nice collection that party game and sports game fans will probably get something out of.

    Fun... But that's where it stops.

    Fun... But that's where it stops.

    My reasons:

    1, No 'Party Mode'. The party mode of London was al lot of fun if done with many people, and with the Winter games at the DS and Wii there were some very fun partygames too. But this game misses all of that.

    2, Not much to collect. The previous games (Mainly the Wii versions) had so much stuff to collect. Music, outfits for Mii's and other small tidbits. Here you can collect trivia and achievements... and that's it... very saddening.

    3. Story Mode. As fun as the story is, after you've completed it, there's not much reason to go back after collecting all Trivia. Vancouver on the DS had a massive story mode with a surprising amount of post-story content. I hoped with the extra power you guys had at your disposal would return something as massive as that. Additionally, the areas you walk around in are beautiful, but sadly your freedom of movement to check the venues is really limited. A free moving camera would have solved this to a extent.

    4, No Grand Prix kinda events. I loved those! But that they are completely absent is a letdown for the party value. That's all I have to say about it.

    All in all, Fun... that's it. Story has no replay value, the events are easy to grasp but I'm missing a certain depth like Vancouver and London had, Especially on the collectables as collecting those was one of the most fun things to do in the previous titles. (Note, I've only played until London, skipped the Wii U.) I still have hope for the Winter Games, and that you guys will return to the core of the games.
