Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Review (GodisaGeek)

"The Olympic Games fanfare is second-to-none. The roar of the crowd and the overwhelming pressure that’s bestowed on athletes of every race, colour and creed create a spectacle that billions around the world relish every four years. While the Winter Olympic Games is a more niche affair, there’s no disputing the real-life drama that will occur in Russia next February.

Mario & Sonic have been battling each other in various Olympic events since 2007, with this entry being the second title focusing on the Winter Games. Naturally aimed at the family market, kids will lap up the chance to see Bowser own Tails on the ice, but once they get their hands on the controller, they’ll see flawed motion controls and a party game that doesn’t offer much more than your standard fare." (Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Wii U) 5/10
