The X Button writes: "Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games is many things. It's fun, acessible, diverse, inventive, and a very long name to write repeatedly in a review. It's not deep - though that shouldn't come as a surprise - and it doesn't have quite as much to offer as its Wii counterpart, but as a portable game it strikes just the right balance between entertaining gameplay and ease of play. The story mode is a wonderful surprise addition that just tips the scales in the game's favour. If you need any further proof that mixed events sports games have indeed come a very long way, this is it."
